Kemmeter, Philmore (JUL 1890 - 14 MAY 1915)

Philmore Kemmeter, son of P.J. Kemmeter of Granton, Clark County, died at the home of his father in that village Friday morning, May 14, 1915. He was born at Menasha in July 1890, and came with his parents to Granton when about six months old. There he grew to manhood, and after finishing the Granton school he went to La Crosse and completed a course in business college. In 1911 he went to California and remained there two years. On his return he went to work in his father’s store, where he was employed up to within a few months ago, when failing health compelled him to quit work. It became evident that he was suffering from tuberculosis, and the best modern treatment for the disease was resorted to; for a time he was at the State Sanatorium at Wales, but the disease progressed and he came home to spend the few remaining days of his life.

His death comes as a sad blow to his home and to the entire community. He was a young man of sterling character, a general favorite with everyone who knew him, well prepared to take a useful place in the world where prospects opened fair before him.

The funeral was held Sunday at the home under the auspices of the Masonic Lodge of Neillsville, of which he was a member.
