Seneca, KS

04/19/1921 - 12/11/1999

Edna D. Sack, 78, of Seneca, died Saturday, December 11, 1999 at her home, following a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born April 19, 1921 at the home place north of Seneca, one of fifteen children, the daughter of William Edward and Anna M. (Engelken) Stallbaumer. She grew up there and attended School at St. Benedict until her freshman year when she quit to help her mother raise her nephew Willie Fangman.

On October 20, 1941, she married John Sack at St. Mary’s Church St. Benedict. He survives of the home in Seneca. They lived and farmed north of Seneca for 20 years before moving to Corning in 1962 where they continued farming. In 1977 they retired and moved into Seneca.

She was a member of Sts. Peter and Paul Church at Seneca, St. Ann’s Altar Society, the Prayer Chain, Perpetual Adoration, volunteered at the Mission Center and sewed baptismal gowns for the new babies at the church. She and her husband spent many enjoyable hours making quilts for family and friends. Each year they proudly anticipated which quilt to donate to the Sts. Peter and Paul Church Labor Day Picnic. She also enjoyed teaching her grandchildren to bake, sew and crochet, and spent many hours with them playing games and putting together puzzles.

Survivors besides her husband are six sons: John Sack of Berryton, KS, Gary Sack and Leroy Sack both of Topeka, Daniel Sack of Corning, KS, Timothy Sack and Michael Sack both of Seneca; five daughters, Mary Ann Troxel of Shawnee, KS, Judy Steinlicht of Topeka, Barbara Wells of Valley Falls, KS, Laura Noland of Seneca and Carol Nantz of Keller, Texas; two sisters, Mary Ann Huninghake of Seneca and Alma Sack of Denver, Colorado; 23 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by a grandson, Nicholas John Sack on December 23, 1980. Edna was also preceded in death by eight brothers, Herman, Norbert, Melvin, Eugene, Victor, Sylvester, Walter and Paul Stallbaumer; four sisters, Irene Fangman, Marcella Rottinghaus, Doris Stallbaumer and Florence Fangman.

The rosary was prayed at the Lauer Funeral Home on Sunday afternoon by the parish and in the evening by St. Ann’s Altar Society. The Mass of Christian burial was offered by Fr. Barry Richardson and Fr. Francis Russ on Monday at Sts. Peter and Paul Church. Lector was Leon Feldkamp, Eucharistic minister was Julie Strathman. Servers were Philip and Charlie Strathman and James and Jeremy Stallbaumer. The gift bearers were grandchildren.

Burial was in the church cemetery. Her pallbearers were their six sons. Memorials may be given for Sts. Peter and Paul School.
