Warncke, Mrs. Fred (30 OCT 1887 - 16 FEB 1924)

News of the death of Mrs. Fred Warncke saddened the hearts of many Owen, Clark County, Wis. people and those of her community, Tuesday morning when it was learned that she had passed away at about ten o'clock, of pleurisy, at her home three miles west of the village of Withee, after an illness of about a week. She was the daughter of Mrs. Fred Koplitz, Sr., and was 26 years, 3 months and 27 days of age.

The passing of this good woman at this time is particularly sad, for the past ten weeks sickness has been in the home. First three of the children were taken ill with whooping cough, and after recovering from this disease, the home was quarantined with Scarlet fever, and following this Mrs. Warncke gave birth to a daughter twelve days before her death. The home troubles and the sickness which followed the birth of her child were more than she could stand, and all that medical science could do, did not give back to her, her normal health.

She leaves to mourn, her husband and four children, an aged mother, three brothers, Fred, henry and William, all of Withee, and three sisters, Mrs. Hugh Mongan and Mrs. Wm. Mongan, Oshkosh, and Mrs. George Douphner, Salt Lake City, all of who came to attend the funeral except Mrs. Douphner, who could not come at this time.

Funeral services will be conducted tomorrow afternoon from the home at two o'clock, Rev. f. W. Sherman of St. Katherine's Church of Owen, officiating. Burial will be made in Riverside Cemetery.
