Help Translating an Obituary from Old German Text

+6 votes

I would appreciate help in translating to English an obituary for Anna (Wagner) Freiß or Friesz.  She died young at age 22 and I believe that her death was a shock to the community. 

I have posted the German Obituary to her her profile.

Thank you so much,  Carrie

New Leipzig, ND, May 14
I would also like to come with a message of mourning about the death of Anna Frieß, née Wagner, who passed away on April 29. The deceased was a daughter of Jacob Wagner and his wife, née Redinger, now married to Daniel Röhl here.
She was born on December 24, 1913, in Lincoln Ballen, R.D., and after the death of her father in 1922, she moved here with her mother and siblings.

On June 4, 1928, she entered into the status of a holy matrimony with her now deeply bowed husband Eduard Frieß, from which marriage five children, a boy and four girls, resulted. In 1929, Mrs. Frieß was taught by Pastor Rudolf Heupel and after thorough instruction in the Word of God, she was baptized and confirmed by him.

Mrs. Frieß was always healthy, until she gave birth to a pair of twins on April 26th, and about one hour after the birth she suffered from cramps. When these attacks of gout recurred, the doctor was summoned, but all attempts to keep the young life alive were in vain. On April 29th in the afternoon at 12:15 pm, she fell asleep gently in the Lord. She was buried on Sunday, May 3, with great participation at the Lutheran Lutheran Church Cemetery. Pastor Rudolf Heupel led the funeral service and preached about the text Ev. Matth. 14, 27. 133 cars were counted and the participants were estimated to be over 700.

The deceased brought her life to 22 years, 4 months and 5 days. She leaves behind her deeply grieved husband with five minor children, her deeply bowed mother and stepfather, as well as four brothers and eight sisters, the deeply sad parents-in-law, ten brothers-in-law and seven sisters-in-law, six stepbrothers, two half-brothers and four stepsisters. May the dear deceased rest in peace. (We express our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved - editorial office)
Thank you Dieter, your translation has helped me a lot with her profile!
