Wegner, Gottlieb (1 JUL 1844 - 27 MAR 1929)

Gottlieb Wegner died on Wednesday, March 27, 1929, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hemp, at the age of 85 years, 9 months and 27 days. He had enjoyed good health all his life, but about a year ago a heart ailment gradually commenced to undermine his strength. About four months ago the effect of the disease became noticeable and caused his death last Wednesday.

Gottlieb Wegner was born in Germany on July 1, 1844 and spent 43 years of his life there. He then came to America and settled in Clark County, Wis., being employed at various places and occupations until about twenty years ago, when he went to live with his niece, Mrs. Fred Hemp, and at whose home he died. He had never married and all his brothers and sisters have preceded him in death. He was a very active and industrious man, kindly and charitable, and was respected by all who came to know him. He leaves many relatives and friends to mourn his demise.

The funeral was held last Saturday at St. John's Lutheran Church, Rev. Bauman officiating. He was laid to rest at the side of his two brothers in Pine Valley Cemetery.
