Giloy, Louise (10 MAR 1882 - 2 JUN 1936)

Mrs. Philip Giloy passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, at 6:30 o’clock Tuesday morning, June 2, 1936, following an operation, which all hoped would be successful. The news of her death came as a shock to her many friends and relatives of this community, few of whom were aware of the serious nature of her ailment.

Mrs. Giloy had been in ill health for the past six months and on May 20, underwent an operation. Death was caused by heart failure.

Louise Zimmerman was born on March 10, 1882, the daughter of Herman and (Lena Euker) Zimmerman in the Town of Pine Valley, Neillsville, where she was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church. For the past 25 years she has been a member of St. John’s Reform Church at Humbird.

July 4th, 1900 she was united in marriage to Philip Giloy. Their 35th wedding anniversary last year was made an occasion for relative and friendly celebration. One of their ten children, a daughter, Eleanor, preceded the mother at the age of 2 years.

Surviving are her life’s companion, six sons William, Clarence, Robert, Herbert, Vernon and Garold all at home; three daughters, Rosseta at home, and Mrs. John O. Mueller and Mrs. Martin Fisher both of Spencer.

She was a faithful wife and a loving mother. Besides her husband and children, she leaves three brothers Robert, Fairchild; Reinhardt of near Black River Falls; Frank of Humbird; two brothers Albert and Edwin preceded her. Two sisters, Mrs. Martha Terrill, Humbird and Mrs. Anna Gower, Alma Center.

The funeral was held Friday afternoon June 5th, at 1:45 from the funeral home and at 2:00 from the St. John’s Reform Church at Humbird, Rev. Wiedler, pastor, officiating. The floral tributes were beautiful, a mute tribute of the esteem in which she was held. Interment was made in the Alma Center Cemetery.

Pall bearers were four of her sons and her two son-in-laws, William, Clarence, Robert and Herbert Giloy and Mr. John O. Mueller and Mr. Martin Fisher.

She was a kind, loving wife and mother. Her cheerful companionship will be missed at the fireside in the community and among all who knew her.

She quietly entered "that undiscovered country from whose bourne no traveler returns," and where the Supreme Architect of the Universe presides. She has gone to live in that "House not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."
