Breitlow, William F. (25 DEC 1885 - 2 JUN 1948)

A heart attack suffered late Monday evening, May 31, 1948, while doing chores, proved fatal to William Frederick Breitlow. Mr. Breitlow was brought to Owen, Clark County, Wis., where he was treated by a physician and then taken to St. Joseph's Hospital at Marshfield, where he passed away June 2, 1948.

Funeral services were conducted Saturday, June 5, from the Griebenow Funeral Parlors, with Rev. Bundgaard of Withee officiating at the final rites. Burial was made in the Riverside Cemetery.

Pallbearers at the service were Milfred Wenzel, Elmer Venet, Edward Dicks, Wallace Wood, Ten Buss and Alfred Arndt.

William Frederick Breitlow was born on Dec. 25, 1885 at Rio Creek, Wis. For the past 31 years he had resided on his farm seven and one-half miles north of Withee. Mr. Breitlow's absence from the community and his family will be mourned as he was a fine community worker and family man.

On Jan. 18, 1917 he was united in marriage to Bessie Heck at Kewanee, Wis. The couple immediately moved to this community. She preceded him in death, having passed away on May 24, 1946.

Surviving him are two daughters, Mildred and Norma, three sisters, Mrs. Ella Glander, Olgoma, Wis., Mrs. Frank Pelit, Edgar, Wis. and Mrs. Ernest Post of Fenwood; and one brother, Albert of Algoma. Three sisters and one brother had also preceded him in death.
