Final rites were read for Louise Hayes Probst from the Holy Rosary church, Owen, at 9:00 a.m., Wednesday, March 5, 1941, by Father Brady of Abbotsford.

Mrs. Probst, 60 years, nine months and two days of age passed away at the home of her daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Larson, at Chippewa Falls, Sunday, March 2. She had been in failing health for the past several years and of late her condition had become worse. She was at Chippewa Falls with her daughter and was planning on entering the hospital on Monday for treatment. However her passing on into eternity came quietly as she laid down to take a nap from which she never awolke.

Interment was made at the Riverside cemetery. Pallbearers at the services were w. J. Mahoney, W. H. Hilts, H. Devine, L. J. Doucette, H. B. Mauel and Stanley Michkowski.

Louise Hayes was born on May 10, 1881, at Buckingham, Canada, where she spent her early girlhood. When still in her teens she moved with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hayes, both now deceased, to Eau Claire. Several years later her folks and family moved to Owen where she has since made her home.

On July 15, 1895, she was united in marriage to Joseph K. Probst at Colby, and made their home at Owen.

Mrs. Plrobst was a fine mother and enjoyed her home and her Christian faith above everything else. She was a member of the Royal Neighbors lodge, the Equitable Reserve Association and an active member of the Holy Rosary Society of the Holy Rosary Church of Owen.

She is survived by her husband and two sons, Ralph of Black River Falls and Harry of Augusta, and three daughters, Irene Larson of Stevens Point, Mrs. Thomas Larson of Chippewa Falls, and Mrs. Dewey Welder of Owen; and then grandchildren.
