Owen - Mrs. Fred Becker, 72, of Atwood, Town of Green Grove, died at 5:15 this morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, as a result of a stroke suffered Tuesday while visiting friends in Rib Lake. She has been in the hospital since Tuesday.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Green Grove with the Rev. M. C. Goetsch, pastor, officiating. Burial will be made in the church cemetery.

The body will lie in state at the Central Wisconsin Co-Operative Funeral Home in Marshfield from noon Sunday until Tuesday morning, when it will be taken to the church for the services.

Mrs. Becker, nee Minnie Tetzloff, was born in Germany, in a small village near the Polish frontier, on Jan. 23, 1870, and received her education there. She came to this country shortly before her 20th birthday.

On Feb. 7, 1892, she married Fred Becker in Milwaukee, where Mr. Becker worked as a bricklayer for three years. They moved then to a farm near Rib Lake, and lived there nine months before moving to Clark County, where they had resided since. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary on Feb. 7, 1942.

Surviving besides her husband are two sons, Paul, Vesper; Otto, Town of Beaver; two daughters, Mrs. Albert (Elsie) Schuh, Colby; and Mrs. Roy (Mayme) Thompson, Minneapolis; and eight grandchildren.
