Ruth Ellen Bischoff, daughter of Emma Brueggemann

Ruth Ellen was born on this day in 1917.  Sadly, she died just before her ninth birthday in 1926.  I know children had a higher rate of mortality in those day but it would still be hard on the family.  Emma and Walter had five children.  When Ruth died, her sister Juanita was a baby.  Think about how hard it would have been for Emma caring for a small baby and grieving the loss of Ruth.

Does anybody know about the cause of death?  Was it an accident? A chronic illness? A sudden sickness?  Leave a comment if you have info.  Also, I would love to have a picture of her rather than the picture I have below.
