North, Helene (21 May 1878 - 31 Dec. 1932)
Miss Helen Eleanora North, who had been an invalid for many years, passed away Saturday, Dec. 31, at 10 o'clock at her home in this city, the immediate cause of her death being an attack of the flu.
Miss North was born at Montello, Wis., May 21, 1878. When only a little girl she came to Neillsville with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry North. She attended St. John's parochial school and Neillsville public schools and for a year studied music in Milwaukee. For over fourteen years she has been subject to attacks of asthma from which she suffered greatly, and which compelled her to live quietly at home. She was a lady of refined tastes and kind disposition, bearing patiently her long years of illness.
She is survived by her mother, who at present is very ill; four brothers, Henry of Chicago; Herman, Gustav and William of Neillsville; and two sisters, Misses Laura and Clara North, at home.
The funeral was held at the home Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Carl Koeher officiating.
Those from away attending the funeral were: Miss Fredericka Radke, Mrs. Philip Czeskleba and son, Philip, Mrs. Aug. Radke, Mrs. Jaster, Mrs. Gus. North, Miss Vivian Radke and Adolph Radke, all of Montello; Mrs. Carl Reiter of Minneapolis; Mr. and Mrs. Clare Ruxton of Chicago; Miss Louise Hillmer, Mrs. Salzwedel, and Alfred North of Fond du Lac; Mrs. Paula Zastrow and daughter Eleanor, Wm. Knoop, R. J. Knoop and son Kurt, all of Berlin, Wis.
