Lippert, George Sr. (1847 - 24 MAR 1920)
George Lippert Sr. died at his residence here at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, of heart trouble. Mr. Lippert had been in poor health for about two years, but was able most of the time to be up and about. Tuesday afternoon he felt worse and went to bed. His family watched over him during the night. In the early morning while apparently asleep, he peacefully passed away.
Mr. Lippert was born in Bavaria, Germany in 1847 and came to this country when about twenty years of age. At the time of his death he was 78 years of age.
He had lived in Clark County, Wisconsin for a number of years before coming to Timber Lake in 1910. He opened a butcher shop here in that year and continued actively at this work up to about three years ago. Up to the time he discontinued operation of the meat market he was regarded as one of the hardest working men in town. He was always found at his post early and late.
The deceased leaves surviving him his widow, and her eight children, Bertha Ewell, a nurse at the state hospital in St. Peter, Minn., Grover Lippert, an architect, who lives at Madison, Wis., Mrs. Francis Pohlman of Chicago, Lawrence, who is attending the State College at Brookings and Walter, Leo, Lena, and Mrs. Jeanette Schlonge, all of who reside here. He also leaves surviving him three children of a former marriage. These are George and Miss Clara Lippert, who live here, and Mrs. George Trachte, who lives in Madison, Wis.
A short service was held at the home Thursday afternoon, after which the body was taken to the depot for shipment to Madison, Wis. for burial. Accompanying his body were Mrs. Lippert, the daughters, Lena and Clara, and his son George.
The community expresses its heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family. (Timber Lake S.D. Topic)
