Verbeck, Cecil (20 MAY 1859 - 20 MAY 1927)
Cecil Verbeck, a resident of this city (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.) and locality for many years, passed away Friday morning, May 20, at the home of Mrs. Norman Schafer, where he has lived for the past 15 years.
He was taken ill on Jan. 27, and his decline had been gradual and constant until death gave him release from his sufferings. He bore the pain and weakness with great patience and fortitude until the end.
Cecil Verbeck was born at West Bend, Wis., May 20, 1859. Having moved to this county, he settled in the town of York and was there married to Mary Ann Northup in 1882. She passed away 4 years after their marriage, leaving one son, Forest, who preceded his father in death on April 8, 1911.
Mr. Verbeck followed farming for a good many years in the town of York, later selling out and coming to Neillsville where he engaged in real estate and other lines of business. He was a man of upright character, quiet and gentlemanly in manner, and highly respected by all who knew him.
He leaves to mourn his loss one brother, Robert Verbeck of Galveston, Texas, two grandchildren, Celia and Edith Verbeck of San Francisco, Calif., four nieces and five nephews.
The funeral was held Sunday at the Methodist Church, Rev. S. J. Lambright officiating. The Modern Woodmen, of which Mr. Verbeck was an old member, attended in a body.
