Staab, Valentine (12 JAN 1885 - 1 MAR 1928)

Valentine Staab, who met his tragic death at the Pernsteiner gravel pit last Thursday noon, was laid at rest Tuesday, March 6, in the cemetery south of town. The funeral was conducted at the farm home by Rev. J. Brandt. Mrs. Brandt san a lovely solo and Eric Beisner, Alfred Hinke, Frank Stoiber, John Stoiber, Joe Younker and Rudolph Ulrich acted as pallbearers, while Irene Plockelman, ? Schultz, Ruth Olson and Cynthia Drake carried the beautiful offerings of flowers given by his fellow townsmen. He was a member of the Izaak Walton League in the village and they gave a fitting memento.

Valentine Staab was born at the home place west of the village (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.) on Jan. 13th, 1885, and was 43 years, 1 month and 18 days of age at time of death. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Staab. His mother preceded him in death. On Dec. 23rd, 1908 he was married in Dorchester to Miss Clara Marquardt of Bonduel, and four sons were born to them, Jake, Leslie, Donald and Milton, who with their mother, mourn the loss of a kind and loving father.

Mr. and Mrs. Staab were in Sash., Canada, about 1 ½ years. Outside of that, practically all of his life was spent in Dorchester country.

His friends are many and as one saw the signs of sorrow on all faces as they spoke of his untimely death, one could realize something of the affection his fellowmen had for him. He is gone, but the good he did will live on and brighten the lives of those who loved him.

Besides his wife and sons, he leaves to mourn his loss his aged father, who makes his home with them, one brother, John, three sisters, Clara of Ashland, Mrs. Ed Feneey, Maringo, and Mrs. L. B. Bremo of Murray, Utah. All were here for the funeral and the one sister’s husband, Mr. Ed Feneey, and the other relatives were Mr. and Mrs. J. Smith and daughter Vivian of Hammond, Ind., Mrs. Chas. Langner of Oshkosh, Mrs. Ida Groonueld, Shawano, Mrs. Tony Tratz of Wittenberg, Messrs. Robert, William, Otto and Maynard Marquardt of Bonduel..

The Clarion joins the host of friends in offering sympathy to the grief stricken family.
