Neuenfeldt, William (1 AUG 1916 - 1 JUL 1921)

Little William Neuenfeldt was called by the death angel, Thursday morning at 1 o’clock, after an illness of only 6 days.

On Friday evening June 24th, he started to complain of having a sore foot, after a careful diagnosis by Dr. Baker it was decided to take William to the Marshfield Hospital, where on Monday morning an operation was performed for blood poisoning, but all proved of no avail as the poison had gotten too far into his system, and medical aid could not save him.

Little William was a very bright and obedient boy, his demise is a shock to the family and his many friends that will be hard to forget, but we know he has gone where there is no more suffering, and this world of trials and troubles he has left behind.

Funeral services will be held from the residence Saturday afternoon at two o’clock. Interment will be made in the Greenwood Cemetery.

Sad is it indeed to write any obituary, but doubly sad is it to write that of one’s own son.

William Neuenfeldt, or Baby Bill as he was known around home, was born in Greenwood Clark County, Wis., Aug. 1, 1916. In March 1920 he was taken seriously ill with the "flu", which settled near the mastoid bone. He was taken to Marshfield where an operation was performed and in six weeks was able to return home. On Friday night, June 24, he complained of a sore foot and after receiving medical aid at home, was taken to the hospital at Marshfield, where on Monday he underwent another operation. It is thought that the poison did not completely leave his system, since he had the "flu", this causing his death, which occurred early last Thursday morning.

At the hospital he received the best of attention and we feel indebted to the Sisters and Nurses for the splendid care they gave him.

Deceased was a bright little lad and his death is a great loss to his parents and relatives. He is survived by his parents and three little brothers, besides many other relatives.

The body was brought to Greenwood for burial, funeral services being held from the home last Saturday afternoon. Interment was made in the Greenwood Cemetery. Rev. Achtlich officiated.
