Luethe, Berthold E. (25 AUG 1859 - 4 MAY 1902)

Berthold E. Luethe was born in Milwaukee, Aug. 25, 1859. He was brought up in that city and in early manhood while a commercial traveler, made Milwaukee his home. In 1890 he came to Neillsville, Clark County and went into business. He has been interested in various enterprises here, taking an active hand in each of them. For the past two years he has been in the grain, produce and farm machinery business. Mr. Luethe was a most active and enterprising citizen, a tireless and public-spirited worker. He has done a great deal for this city and vicinity. His cheerfulness and energy under either favorable or adverse circumstances, have given him abiding remembrance in the hearts of the people who knew him. Far and near old friends and acquaintances mourn his untimely death. His interest in the militia company and his zeal for its advancement made him a favorite in Company A. of which he was first lieutenant. Deceased was a member of the Free Masons.

He was married in 1881 to Amelia Franckenberg who, with a son Thermo, a young man in his teens, survive him. To them are extended the heartfelt sympathy of all.
