Page, Josephine (24 JUN 1895 - 5 DEC 1918)

Mrs. Milton Page died of influenza Dec. 5, 1918 at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Marx, after only a few days illness.

Josephine was born at Granton, Clark County, Wis., June 24, 1895. In 1900 the family moved tot he farm in the town of Grant, where they lived five years. Thirteen years ago they moved to Neillsville, where they lived ever since. Here Josephine grew to womanhood, attended school and graduated from high school in June 1914. She worked for a time in the canning factory, later in the laundry, and then clerked at the Big Store. Wherever she met people, either in a private or public way, she made friends. She was always ready to help and do her duty, kind and accommodating to all.

On Dec. 28, 1917 she went to Waco, Texas and was married to Private Milton Page serving in the army. Soon after he was sent with the troops overseas, where he is still in service, and where the sad news will reach him of the death of his young bride.

The funeral was held Monday at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Rev. P. Weber officiating.
