Chili-(special)-James Geldernick, 43, who had lived on his farm in the Town of Fremont for the past 20 years, died at 6:40 o'clock Monday evening at St. Joseph's Hospital, Marshfield, where he had been taken about two weeks ago.

Death was caused by complications resulting from a kidney ailment, following an illness commencing Jan. 28.

The body will lie in state at the Rembs Funeral Home, Marshfield, until Wednesday afternoon when it will be taken to the home of Mr. Geldernick, route 1, Chili. Rosary services will be conducted both Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

The requiem high mass will be read Friday morning at 9 o'clock at St. Stephen's Catholic Church in Chili. The Rev. Arthur J Cramer will officiate at the services, and burial will be made in the parish cemetery.

Mr. Geldernick, son of Frank and Elizabeth (Coffy) Geldernick, was born in Freedom, Outagamie County, Aug. 31, 1896. His mother died when he was a small child, and he was cared for at the Green Bay Orphanage until he was 14 years old, when he came to Chili to live with his father. Since that time he had resided in the vicinity of Chili.

His marriage to Miss Gertrude Croll took place at St. Stephen's Church in Chili Feb. 29, 1916, with the Rev. Anthony Mueller officiating at the nuptials.

He is survived by his wife and 11 children, Miss Eliabeth Geldernick, Hinsdale, IL; Francis Geldernick, Elgin, IL; and William Geldernick, Howard and Harold Geldernick, twins; Lorraine Geldernick, Pauline and James Geldernick, twins; Richard and William Geldernick, twins; and Robert Geldernik, all at home.
