Loos, Elroy (10 FEB 1900 - 19 OCT 1915)
Elroy Loos, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Loos of this city (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.), was taken to the Hospital in Marshfield, on Oct. 9th and operated for appendicitis. The operation, although a serious one for a few days bid fair to be a successful one, and hopes for Elroy’s recovery seemed favorable, but complications set in and he passed away on Tuesday evening, Oct. 19th, 1915. The remains were brought here by our home undertakers, Luloff Bros., Wednesday afternoon. The funeral will be held from St. John’s German Ev. Church Saturday afternoon at 2 o’clock.
Elroy was born at Brillion, Calumet Co., Feb. 10, 1900. Came to Colby with his parents in 1902. Elroy was a very manly little fellow, and was one whom his elders would take notice. He was honest and industrious and always made the most of his time. He was attending the city schools and during his spare time he could be found helping his father at the machine shop. For the last two years he has applied himself in this way and had come to be very proficient in the business, considering his years. With his boyhood companions he was a favorite and his gentlemanly manner endeared him to the hearts of all who knew him. Old and young alike have been much concerned during his sickness and it was a severe shock to learn that the end had come. His death is a sad blow to his parents, brothers and sisters, who thought a great deal of him. The sympathy of the entire community is with them in their bereavement.
