Wehrman, Henrietta (12 AUG 1867 - 30 DEC 1944)

Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.) - Injuries suffered in an automobile collision at Wolters’ Corners, 3 miles west of Longwood, resulted in the death of Mrs. William Wehrman, 77, at the scene of the accident Saturday afternoon (Dec 30, 1944).

Mrs. Wehrman, a resident of Greenwood, was on her way to Barron with her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Simon Wehrman, when the car driven by her son collided with another occupied by Elmer Stafford and his son, Lyle, of Owen, Wis.

The Stafford car struck the front of the Wehrman vehicle and pushed it against a vacant store building which obscures visibility at he intersection of County Trunks N and O., where the crash occurred. A cheese factory at the same intersection also obscures the view from one directions.

The Wehrmans were driving north and the Staffords west at the time of the accident.

Mrs. Wehrman, who was riding in the rear seat of the car, spoke after the mishap, but died about 2:30 p.m., shortly after the crash.

It was not immediately determined whether her death was caused by a head injury or whether shock was the principal contributing factor. The case was investigated by the Clark County traffic police department.

Tentative arrangements have been made to conduct funeral services at the Wehrman home at 1:30 and at the West Side Reformed Church at 2 p.m., but word from a son, Walter, in Montana, is awaited before this arrangement can be made final. The Rev. J.C. Klingeberger will officiate and burial will take place in the West Side Cemetery.

Mrs. Wehrman was born Henrietta Klemme, in Hohenheusen, German, and came to the United States in 1893. She was married during the same year to William Wehrman and had lived on the Wehrman farm here since that time.

She is survived by six sons and four daughters; William, Beaver Township; Gus, Park Falls; Oscar at home; Simon, Greenwood; Theodore, Kohler, Montana; Pauline, Milwaukee; Mrs. Ted (Emma) Hium, Warner Township; Mrs. Ed (Minnie) Karntiz, Barron; and Mrs. Alphonse (Elsie) Ampe, Cadott.

Mr. Wehrman died in 1931, a daughter, Martha, died in 1921, and a son, Arthur, died in 1908.
