Possley, Clifford J. (1 NOV 1911 - 24 SEP 1932)
Clifford J. Possley, son of Mr. and Mrs. Nick Possley, was taken to the hospital at Rochester about three weeks ago, where an operation for a tumor on the brain was performed. He remained at the hospital two weeks and returned to his home here Sept. 16th. On Friday last he was taken suddenly with convulsions and was taken to the hospital at Chippewa Falls where he passed away on Saturday noon.
Deceased was born at De Pere, Wis., on Nov. 1, 1911, and came to Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.) with his parents about ten years ago, where he attended local schools, graduating from the high school with the class of 1930.
He leaves to mourn his untimely death, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nick Possley, two brothers, Ray and Roger, and one sister, Lenore.
It is sad to give up one whose influence among men would doubtless have been for good; who by precept and example was so well calculated to spread abroad the blessed influence of godly living. Yet He who doeth all things well, makes no mistakes. The human link snapped asunder on earth is forged anew in heaven. The yearning parents mourn not as one without hope. It is true that when beautiful youth is gone not much of life remains; hence the dear oneís eyes are closed to all earthly trials. In his springtime of enthusiasm and tenderness, ere the sunshine of hope and joy was extinguished, he passed to the glorious beyond.
Thus close the early life of one who, being dead, yet speaketh.
May time bring its resignation, and may the shores of eternity that receives his soul, surround it with everlasting sunshine and flowers.
Funeral services were held at St. Bernardís Catholic Church here on Monday morning, after which the body was taken to Sheboygan, accompanied by the family and numerous friends, where services were held at the Holy Name Cathedral followed by interment in the church cemetery there.
