Obituary- Martinek, Benedict 1


Benedict (Sonny) Martinek Jr., 11-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. B. J. Martinek, was killed instantly Tuesday afternoon, Aug. 2, 1949, when the tractor he was driving overturned. He was operating the tractor on his father’s farm, and in turning at the end of the field a wheel climbed a post and his machine turned over. Martinek was in the field when the tragedy occurred, and had to summon help and use another tractor to release the boy.

The Martinek farm home is located north east of Rossville. Surviving besides the parents, are two brothers, Douglas and Dwight; two grandmothers Mrs. Frank Diehl and Mrs. Agnes Martinek; and a number of aunts and uncles. He attended 101 rural school near Rossville, where he was a sixth-grader.

Funeral services were held at the Sacred Heart church at Delia, Thursday, at 9 a. m. with burial in the Mt. Calvary cemetery at St. Marys.

Benedict (Sonny) Martinek

IN MEMORIAM -- In loving memory of our darling “Sonny”, who was taken from us thirteen years ago today, August 2, 1949. Thirteen years ago you left us, Son, On your journey home to God; Thirteen years ago with sorrow you were placed beneath the sod. You bade no one a last farewell, you said good-bye to none; God loaned you for a few short years then your stay on earth was done. More and more each day we miss you;
friends may think the wound is healed, but little do they know the sorrow that lies within our hearts concealed. Someday we hope to meet you, Son, In that better land above; where sorrows never enter And there is only Love.

Sadly missed by parents and brothers, Mr. and Mrs. Bennie J. Martinek, Douglas and Dwight.
