Luhrsen, Hollis W. (25 JUN 1907 - 5 JUN 1923)

Another one of our young friends was taken from our midst when Wallis Luhrsen answered the last call June 5, 1923.

Hollis William Luhrsen, the son of Mr. and Mrs. August Luhrsen of this village, died at Withee, Clark County, Wis. June 5, 1923, where he had been under the care of Dr. Nielsen. His body was brought back to Abbotsford Wednesday, June 6th. Hollis was born at Abbotsford June 25, 1907.

He lived here until three years of age. He parents then moved to New Hammand where they lived one year, when they moved to Eau Claire, living there for three years. From there they moved to Wis. Rapids, coming from there to Abbotsford, where they have since resided.

He was taken sick in February with inflammatory rheumatism, which left him with a weak heart. He recovered from this and was able to be out once more, but in January he was taken with the flue, which left his heart in such a weakened condition that he was unable to recover.

The funeral services were held Thursday afternoon from the Presbyterian Church, Rev. Joergensen officiating. The floral offerings were many and beautiful.

The relatives of the immediate family from out of town who attended the funeral were: Dr. Mrs. Nielsen and son Andrae, Mr. and Mrs. ? Luhrsen, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Luhrsen and Mrs. J. A. Miller.
