SPIEGELBERG, Mabel (11/24/1883 to 1936)

West Fremont--Coroner P.C. Ludovic, Neillsville, announced today that Mrs. Otto Spiegelberg, 53, whose body was discovered in the barn at her farm home here yesterday, was killed by a bull.

Mrs. Spiegelberg's body was found lying on the barn floor yesterday afternoon by her husband when he returned from the field where he had been working and was unable to find her in the house.

It was believed at first, that she may have fallen down the stairs from the hay loft of the barn, butr the coroner's examination revealed that her injuries, a broken neck and fractured skull, had been inflicted by a young bull which had broken loose in the barn.

It was believed that a horse, tied in the barn, might also have kicked her before she was trampled and gored by the bull.

Mrs. Spiegelberg, nee Mabel ROGERS, was born at Neenah on Nov. 24, 1883, and was married there in 1901. She had been brought up from the age of 5 by foster parent, Mr. and Mrs. William HEUERS. She and Mr. Spiegelberg came to Fremont more than 30 years ago.

Surviving are her husband and children, Robert, of Chili, and Mr. Charles (Phyllis) KOLLER, Milladore; two brothers, Frank ROGERS of New Hampshire, and Berley ROGERS, Orono, ME; a sister, Mrs. Grace LEWIS, Tucson, AZ, and a half-brother, John DAVIS, Orono, ME.

Funeral services will be conducted at Chili Saturday, the Rev. Arthur Cramer officiating, and burial will take place at Neenah.
