Herbert Humke is Killed in the European Fighting
Lieut. Herbert Humke has been killed in action in the European theatre, according to word received by his wife. He was 26 years of age, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Humke of the Greenwood community.
Born in Greenwood, December 7, 1917, he was graduated from high school there in 1934. He then went to work for his brother-in-law, Francis Schweinler, in a printing office in Mosinee. He enlisted in the Army May 1, 1941 and was sent to England May 1, 1944.
He was married to Lillian Kauput at Montgomery, Ala. February 26, 1944. She survives him, residing at Mosinee. Others surviving are the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Humke, and the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. P.H. (Esther) Franzmeier of New Alban, Ia.; Mrs. Francis (Irene) Schweinler, Mosinee; Mrs. Fred (Rose) Timmler, Greenwood; Mrs. Louis (Cora) Slock, Eau Claire; Mrs. Willard (Vera) Stafford, Milwaukee; Harold at home, Everett overseas with the Navy.
A memorial service will probably be held at the West Side Reformed Church, with which the Humke family is connected, and of which the Rev. P.H. Franzmeier, a brother-in-law was long pastor.
