Braun, Richard (1889 - 9 FEB 1922)

Richard Braun committed suicide by hanging himself at the farm home of Charles Ramberg in the town of Worden, Clark County, Wis. on Thursday last. Braun had been left in charge of the farm on that day by Mr. and Mrs. Ramberg and upon their return in the evening found the body haning in a hay shed near the residence. No plausible reason for the act can be given as the young man was in apparent good health and had shown no signs of insanity or disturbed mind. Deceased was the son of Carl Braun and was born in the town of Worden in 1889. He leaves to mourn, his aged father, Carl Braun, two sisters, Mrs. Charles Ramberg and Mrs. Oscar Ramberg, and one brother, Emil Braun.

Mr. Braun was an ex-serviceman, six members of Cecil G. Tormey Post of the American Legion acting as pallbearers at the funeral, which was held on Saturday afternoon last from the Ramberg home, Rev. F. G. Elwick officiating, interment following in the family lot in the town of Worden Cemetery.
