Schiesser, Gabriel (4 May 1875 - 25 Oct. 1934)

Gabriel Schiesser was born in Schwandi, Canton Glarus, Switzerland, May 4, 1875, and passed away at the Neillsville Hospital on October 25, 1934, at the age of 59 years, 5 months and 21 days.

His boyhood days were spent in his native country where he received his education, had instruction and was confirmed in the Reformed Church in his home town. He emigrated to this country at the age of 14 years, locating in Green County, Wisconsin, where he learned the trade of cheese making, which profession he followed since, with the exception of one year that he resided in the state of Alabama.

In later years, he spent the winter months with friends in this vicinity, returning to his work in the early spring. This year he returned from Green County in August, his health not being the best. He made his home with Fred Leiser for the last six or seven years. They also took care of him all through his illness. He was a patient sufferer.

He never married. He always of a kind and cheerful disposition; generous to his friends, and especially to children. Mr. Schiesser leaves to mourn two brothers in Green County, one sister in Switzerland, and a number of nieces and nephews, besides a host of friends in Green County and the vicinity of Humbird.

The funeral services were held at the Reformed Church Sunday afternoon, Rev. V. D. Weidler officiating. The services were attended by a large congregation of friends. Burial was in Mentor Cemetery.

Those from away coming to attend the funeral were Mrs. Albert Schlinder, of Juda, Fred Schiesser of Monroe; Emil Schiesser of South Wayne, Clarence Schiesser of New Glarus, and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Erb of Elk Mound.

Jon,

I am just one of many volunteers who transcribes for the Clark County, Wis. Internet Library and I happened to transcribe this obituary. I have no connections with this family line.  Happy Hunting, Crystal Wendt
