      Obit for Mrs. Valentine Chilek, Shiner Gazette, Sep 28, 1933

      It is with sincere regret that we chronicle the death of Mrs.
      Valentine Chilek, which occurred at the local hospital late Wednesday
      afternoon Sept. 20th. Just a week previous she had been brought to the
      hospital desperately ill and all that medical skill and professional
      nursing could do, proved of no avail. Funeral services were held Friday
      morning from the family residence near Shiner at 9 o'clock thence the
      procession moved to St. Ann's Catholic Church near Hochheim where
      religious services were concluded and burial held in St. Ann's Catholic
      Cemetery. Mrs. Chilek, who was formerly Miss Ludmila Koliba, was born in
      Lavaca County. She was married to Valentine Chilek on Oct. 8th, 1902, in
      the Shiner Catholic Church. She is survived by her devoted husband and
      two children - a daughter Mrs. Annie (Alfons) Hartl and a son Felix both
      living near Shiner; also by two adopted daughters, Sister M. Gabriel of
      the local Convent, and Mrs. Edna Chilek, all of Shiner. An infant son
      preceded her to the grave. One grandchild also survives and the
      following brothers: George Koliba of Hochheim, Louis of Corpus Christi,
      Henry of Robstown; one half brother Frank of Shiner and two half
      sisters, Mrs. Louise Janca of Cistern and Mrs. Jane Ulcak of Wied. Most
      of her life was spent in DeWitt county near Dreyer.
      At the time of her death, Mrs. Chilek was 49 years old. Father Beck of
      Yoakum and his assistant pastor conducted the Mass while Very Rev. L. P.
      Netardus preached the Bohemian Sermon. Pall bearers were Willie Becka,
      John Dolezal, Adolf and Jim Pesek, Frank Dusek and John Hartl. The
      Gazette offers abiding sympathy to all who mourn her loss
