We are gathered here this afternoon to pay our tributes to the
beloved Mr. George T. Albrecht, who passed from this world to the next, Monday,
May 26, 1958 at 1:10 a.m. in his home in Schulenburg, Texas.
He had been ill for some four years, and bed-ridden for the past four months. It is with thankfulness in our hearts that his pain and suffering was taken away by the mercy of God our Father.
Mr. Albrecht was born in La Grange, Texas on the 11th day of June, 1885, the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Albrecht, Sr. After spending his childhood and youth in La Grange, he married Miss Aurelia Pelikan of Schulenburg, Texas in the year 1908. This marriage was blessed with one child, Mrs. Eldred Blasdell of Schulenburg. The Albrecht family was saddened by the departure of their loved one, Mrs. Albrecht, on October 1, 1942.
Mr. Albrecht started his working life with the Wolter's Mercantile in Schulenburg in 1908. Later on, the family moved to Sugarland where Mr. Albrecht worked with the Sugarland Industries for 6 years before moving back to Schulenburg and spending 19 full years as the Schulenburg Night Police. He retired from his labor in February of 1954. Mr. George Albrecht was a faithful citizen of his community and a member of the W.O.W. Lodge.
He is survived by his daughter, Mrs. Eldred Blasdell, one sister, Mrs. H. A. Eck of Schulenburg, four brothers, Fritz, Otto, Charles, and Louis Albrecht, all of La Grange, Texas.
Mr. Albrecht shared his life with us for 72 years, 11 months, and 15 days. Along with his family and loved ones, he is survived by many relatives and a great many friends who mourn the loss and give comfort to the sorrowing through words, flowers and thoughtfulness and prayer.
