Mrs. Harry Karlsberg
A large crowd composed of people of many different religious affiliations gathered at the First Baptist Church to pay their respects to Mrs. KARLSBERG, one of most useful and friendly residents Bowie ever had. The Baptist pastor, Rev. G. B. BRADSHAW and the Presbyterian pastor, Dr. T. C. VINSON, sat by the representative of the Jewish faith, PAUL GOLDSTUCKER of Wichita Falls, to pay last tribute to a great Jewish lady who came to Bowie 45 years ago as a bride and who, with her husband, cast lot in the young town where, through real friendliness, neighborly helpfulness, and civic usefulness, grew herself into the hearts and affections of hundreds who knew her. Mrs. Karlsberg was the victim of a tragic accident in her home on East Tarrant St. For hours she had busied herself calling dozens of people on the telephone to wish them New Year happiness, …her dress became ignited…went into the bathroom for wet towels to extinguish the dress… called her nephew, LESLIE LEVY, at the Perkins-Timberlake Store that she had been burned and for him to bring medicine to treat the burns. When he arrived, he called a doctor who rushed her to the hospital where she passed away Sunday morning… Mr. Coldstucker of the Jewish congregation in Wichita Falls she frequently worshipped conducted the funeral service. Rev. Bradshaw paid a glowing tribute to her. Dr. Vinson described how important she had been to the community. … Although she had no children of her own, she took into her home orphaned children of two families of relatives and reared them.

Dry Goods Store established in 1883, one of the largest and oldest stores in this part of Texas for many years… A graduate of the Brookhaven School for Girls of Mississippi, Mrs. Karlsberg taught music both here and in Little Rock, well known in music circles. … Since the death of her husband in 1931, she continued to make her home here with her nephew, LESLIE LEVY, who had made his home with his aunt since a child and now manager of the Perkins-Timberlake store. Mrs. Karlsberg raised a niece, three nephews, four great-nieces and a great-nephew.
