Hommel, Lulu (22 FEB 1878 - 14 FEB 1915)

Miss Lulu Hommel died at the city hospital, St. Paul, on Sunday, Feb. 14, 1915, death resulting from tuberculosis, complicated with other diseases. Although in poor health, she did not go to the hospital till Thursday preceding her death, but she declined rapidly near the end. Her father, Maj. J.W. Hommel, went to St. Paul Saturday and was with her before she died.

Lulu Marie Hommel was born in Neillsville, Clark County, Feb. 22, 1878 and spent all her girlhood days here. After nearly completing the high school she took a business course, and became bookkeeper at the furniture factory, where she worked for several years. Later she kept books in N.D., traveled for some time as a saleslady for a drug firm, and for some time past was bookkeeper in a millinery store at St. Paul. She was a bright capable woman, and made friends everywhere she went.

Besides her father and stepmother, she leaves one sister, Mrs. V.C. Woelffer of this city and a brother Placido, who is a medical student in Chicago. The funeral was held at the Woelffer home Tuesday afternoon, Rev. L.B. Coleman officiating.
