Tromblay, Dewey (1898 - 11 NOV 1918)

Taken to the hospital the day his son was born, the death, only five days later from pneumonia, of Dewey Tromblay, aged 20, at St. Mary's Hospital Monday morning, was particularly sad and tragic.

Dewey had been employed until recently by the Fountain-Campbell Lumber Co. as brakeman on their logging train, resigning this position to go to Stevens Point and take a position as Soo Line brakeman. He had been employed there about a week when he was taken sick with influenza and was sent home. Arriving here Tuesday of last week, hew went to St. Mary's Hospital the following day. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Tromblay at their home in this city the same day. The terrible shock of her husband's death at such a time has proven almost more than the wife can bear, and she has been very low.

The parents of the deceased survive him, and he also leaves five sisters, Evelyn, Grace, Lucy, Leda, Lorraine, and one brother, Leonard.

The remains were taken Tuesday to Withee, Clark County, Wis., where the funeral and burial were held Wednesday. (Ladysmith News-Budget)

Dewey Tromblay, prior to his going to Ladysmith, was a resident of this city and was employed by the John S. Owen Lumber Co. for nearly four years. His wife is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Hansen residing 6 miles northwest of Withee.
