Hettler, Hilda M. (16 MAY 1901 - 8 MAY 1927)

An automobile accident on the night of May 8th proved fatal to Mrs. Frank Hettler, young wife of frank Hettler, who resides on a farm a few miles from Rhinelander. Mrs. Hettler had accompanied some neighbors to town to do some trading, staying for the movie show, and while enroute home the driver lost control while rounding a curve and the car tipped over instantly killing Mrs. Hettler. The rest of the occupants of the car were only slightly scratched.
