Funeral services for Mrs. Herman Hagen were held at the Jaster Funeral Home at 1;30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15th, the Rev. Wm. A. Baumann officiating. Interment was made in the Globe Cemetery (Actually Weston West.)
Mrs. Hagen passed away at the Neillsville Hospital, November 12, after suffering for about four years with a heart ailment. She was 62 years and nine months of age. She was born February 12, 1879, at Canstatt, Germany, to Caroline and Carl Wahl. She grew to young womanhood and received her education in her native land. It was there, also that she was united in marriage to Herman Hagen in march, 1906. The following year her husband departed for America and three years later in 1910 she joined him in Chicago.
In 1914, the couple came to Clark County to make their home, settling on a farm in Pine Valley. In 1916, they purchase twenty acres in the Town of Weston just north of the mounds and in 1918 they purchased a tract of land in the same township from Len and George Howard. The land then practically all timber, has since been developed into a tillable farm upon which the departed made her home until she passed away.
Mrs. Hagen was the mother of six children, three sons and three daughters, namely: Herman, Jr., Weston, William and Gustave at home; Mrs. Lester May, Neillsville and Bertha and Mary at home. She is survived by her husband and children and possibly a brother, Edward, in Germany from whom she had no message since the war.
