Suennen, Nicholas (11 SEP 1842 - 11 SEP 1924)

Friends were shocked to learn that Nicholas Suennen passed away at his home in the town of Holton, Thursday, Sept. 11th, 1924, at the age of 82 years. The cause of his demise was old age. Funeral services were held Monday A.M. from St. Louis Catholic Church, Rev. Paul Pitzenberger officiating. He was laid at rest in the cemetery south of the village (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.). Al Stroota, A. P. Miller, John Schefsick, W. Schumacher Sr., Nick Decker, and John Pinter acting as pallbearers.

Mr. Suennen was born Sept. 11, 1842 in Wellenstein, Luxembourg, where he grew to manhood. In 1885 he was married to Miss Susanna Guendling, and to this union six children were born, 3 deceased and 3 living, who with the widow survive him. In 1872 they immigrated tot he U.S. and made their home in Wisconsin. About 17 years ago they moved to their present home.

Relatives from out of town present at the funeral were Mrs. Margarette Schrier, Seneca, Kan., Mrs. John Greener, Chicago, Ill., and Mr. and Mrs. C. Bunkelman, Milan, Wis.
