Gustave Theodore Horn, 76, a lifelong resident of the Greenwood area, died suddenly of a heart attack Friday, December 25, at his home in the town of Warner. He had been in failing health for the last seven years.

The Rev. Orval Egbert officiated at the funeral services at 2 p.m Tuesday from Emmanuel United Church of Christ. Burial was made in Forest Hill cemetery, Braun Settlement.

Mr. Horn was born June 20, 1888, in the town of Longwood to Robert and Christina (Brown) Horn.

On October 18, 1916, he married the former Anna Woepse in Greenwood. They farmed 8 1/2 miles northwest of Greenwood until 1957, when he retired due to ill health. They then moved into a house near the farm, where they have lived since.

He was a member of Emmanuel Church and the church consistory. He was also a member of the Braun Settlement school board for many years.

Survivors include his wife; two sons, Herbert of Greenwood and Norman of Wausau; a daughter, Mrs. Albren (Almira) Stanke of Neenah; four brothers, Henry, Herbert and Otto, all of Greenwood and Irvin of Minnapolis; two sisters, Mrs. George (Tillie) Poppe of Greenwood and Mrs. Mike (Dora) Schumann of Lake Alfred, Fla. Four grandchildren also survive.
