Klemish, Henry (Dec 1859 - 25 Aug. 1937)

Henry Klemish, son of Joseph and Barbara Klemish, was born December, 1589, and died at the home of his niece, Mrs. John Ray, in Garden Valley, at 11:30 a.m., August 25, 1937, aged 78 years.

Mr. Klemish came to America with his parents in 1873, settling in Eau Claire, where they remained for a few years, then moving to Garden Valley, which has since been his home. Thirty-five year ago he was united in marriage with Miss Gertrude Reineck.

Although in failing health for some time, he was able to be about until the day he passed away. He is survived by two sons, Joseph, Eau Claire, and Fred, Garden Valley; one sister, Mrs. W. F. Leiser, Beloit; one brother, Joseph whose home is in the state of Washington; three grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.

Mr. Klemish lived through the hardships of the pioneer days as an early settler in Garden Valley, and was highly respected by his friends and neighbors.

Funeral services were held at Kretschmer’s funeral parlors at 1:30, and at the Reformed Church in this village, at 2:00 o’clock Saturday afternoon, Rev. Weidler officiating. The remains were taken to East Lawn Cemetery, at Alma Center, where they were laid to rest beside those of his father and mother.

Those from away to attend the funeral were; Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Leiser, Beloit; Mr. and Mrs. Jos. Klemish, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Rossow, Mr. and Mrs. Archie Dunn, Eau Claire; Mr. and Mrs. L. Lang and family, Miss Mary Kelsh, West Salem; Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Reineck, Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Reineck, Hixton; Mrs. Hazel Knudson, Black River Falls; Lawrence Dunn, Hammond, Ind.
