Garbisch, Herman (21 JAN 1869 - 9 SEP 1929)

Granton, Clark Co., Wis. - Herman Garbisch, 60, a lifelong resident of this section of Clark County, died yesterday afternoon shortly before 1 o’clock at his home on the east side of the village. He had been unable to do heavy work since suffering a stroke six years ago, and was practically helpless the past year.

Funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at Zion’s Lutheran Church, Mapleworks, of which he was a faithful member since childhood, and burial will be made in the parish cemetery. Both pastors of the congregations, Rev. V. M. Keiper, and Rev. Carl E. Hoeh, will officiate.

Mr. Garbisch was born Jan. 21, 1869 at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Garbisch, in the town of Grant, Clark Co., where he grew to manhood. Following the death of his father in 1890, he purchased a farm in the town of York, where he lived until sickness compelled him to retire from farming, when he purchased the home in Granton.

He was married Dec. 12, 1905, to Miss Minnie Grob of Chili, who survives him, together with their two sons, Herbert, employed as bookkeeper by the Roddis Co. at Marshfield, and Walter, who graduated last June from the Granton High School, and lives at home. He also leaves to mourn his death his aged mother, two sisters, Mrs. Emma Campbell of Duluth, and Mrs. Minnie Oxenrider of Sacramento, Calif., and seven brothers, Paul, Robert, and Henry of the town of Grant, Fred of the town of York, Otto of Wausau, George of Rochester, Minn., and Richard in Missouri.
