Funeral services were held at the York Center church this afternoon for Mrs. Stella Mortimer, 81, who passed away at her home in the Town of York Wednesday morning. The Rev. W. N. Grandy, Loyal, officiated at the rites and the pallbearers were: Sylvester Pease, Joseph Eysnogle, Walter Rowe, Hubert Graves, George Selves and Robert Teatz. Mrs. Mortimer was one of the earliest pioneers of Clark County, having resided on the same farm in the Town of York for the past 56 years. She was born at Columbus, Wisconsin on January 26, 1852, and was married to William Mortimer in 1876. They spent the first months of their married life at Chilton, in Calumet County. They made the trip from Chilton to Clark County by ox team. The trip, which can now be made by auto in three to four hours consumed 11 days. The Town of York, where they settled upon their arrival was a virgin wilderness at that time, but they succeeded in carving a farm form it and erecting modern buildings. Mr. Mortimer died 32 years ago. Mrs. Moritmer is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Grace Rowe, Neillsville, and by three sons, Jesse, Ray and George, all of the Town of York, and also by six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
