Roder, William J. (28 FEB 1867 - 23 MAY 1927)

William Joseph Roder died at his home at Milan, Wis., on Monday morning of heart failure. He had been sickly during the winter months with the exception of about a week before he died, when he was feeling good. Monday morning he got up to help with the work, but soon returned to the house and sat in a rocking chair where he was found dead a short time later.

Mr. Roder was born at Hebron, Wis., Feb. 28th, 1867, and was 60 years of age at time of death. In 1890 he was united in marriage to Miss Emma Notbohm and four children came to bless their home, one of whom preceded him in death. The surviving children are Harlow, Viola and Violette.

Twenty years ago the family moved from Marshfield to Milan and is one of the oldest settlers in that vicinity..

He leaves to mourn his loss, his loving wife, Emma Roder, one son, Harlow, two daughters, Mrs. Grant Pope, Stetsonville, and Mrs. Fred Timm of Wuertzburg, and three brothers, Ed, George and Matt of Marshfield, and two sisters, Mrs. Hy. Lent, Viroqua, and Mrs. Lleualand Rolland, Marshfield.

The funeral was held at the Evangelical Church last Thursday, Rev. Bizer of Medford officiating, and was buried in the Evangelical Cemetery southwest of Milan.

Mr. Roder was a man of great interest and ambition and will be greatly missed by his loving wife and children. The Clarion joins in extending sympathy to the bereaved ones.
