Mrs. Violet Ida Meihack, whose death occurred Oct. 4 at Mount Washington Sanatorium in Eau Claire, was born Dec. 11, 1905 at Prairie du Sac, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Schlegemilch. At the age of 12 she came with her parents to Clark County. On May 21, 1928 she was married to Anton Meihack at Hastings, Minn.

Mrs. Meihack was stricken with tuberculosis and on July 14 was taken to the sanatorium. She appeared to be recovering from this illness, but on Sept. 30 her condition was complicated by a heart ailment from which she succumbed four days later, despite every care that could be given her.

Mrs. Meihack is survived by her husband, parents, five sisters, Lillian, Mrs. Odin Ostern, Milwaukee, Mildred, Hazel and Esther, and one brother, Norbert.

The funeral was held October 7 with services at the Schiller Funeral Home at 1:15 p.m. and at the Globe Lutheran Church at 2 p.m., Rev. Walter Motzkus officiating. Burial was made in the Globe Cemetery.
