Babette Fink

Babette Fink the youngest of eight children of Michael Glock and Eva

Schmieg was born in Nassau, Germany, on October 31, 1870.  Soon after birth she was consecrated to the Lord in Holy Baptism.  She was confirmed in the faith of the Evangelical Lutheran Church by her Pastor Reverend Hartman.


In the year 1888 she, together with her sister, the late Mrs. John Krafft, emigrated to America.  For a period of a few years she worked out for different families in the neighborhoods of Stuttgart and Phillipsburg.


On April 25, 1890 she was joined in Holy Wedlock with Mr. Leonard Fink by the Reverend Dilges who was then pastor of Emmanuel Lutheran Church at Stuttgart.  Babette was seldom seriously ill.


Shortly Before her death, she together with her husband, partook of the Lord's last Supper, after which she was comforted and longed to be called home to her Heavenly Father. This wish was granted to her when shortly before 6 o'clock last Monday evening, December 20, 1937, her soul was carried by angels to her new home in heaven, having reached the age of 67 years, 1 month and 20 days.


The funeral services took place Thursday, at 12:00P.M. at Home of her daughter, Mrs. Margaret Kaiser of Phillipsburg. and at 2:15 in Saint Peter's Lutheran Church.  Interment was made in Saint Peter's Lutheran Cemetery.
