Elmer B. Washburn passed away at the St. Joseph Hospital in Marshfield, Wednesday, July 10, 1935, at 8:30 a.m., after a brief illness due to a throat infection, aged 29 years.

He was born July 22, 1906, at Humbird, where he spent his early life. After graduating from the Humbird High School in 1927, he went to Milwaukee, where he was four years at the Hokanson Thompson garage.

He was married on June 11, 1928, to Miss Pearl T. Rose, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Rose, of Granton. The couple made their home in Milwaukee the first three years later after their marriage, moving to Granton four years ago. At the time of his death he was employed by the Otto F. Gruenke Dairy Plant.

Surviving are his wife, and two little daughters, Pearl Rose and Bonita Mae; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Washburn; and four brothers, Dermont and Milton, of Eau Claire, and Wesley and Asa, Neillsville, Wis. He was a young man of fine character, being a kind and loving husband and father, and well-liked by all who knew him.

The funeral was held by Friday afternoon at the Granton church, Rev. P. B. White officiating, interment being in the Windfall Cemetery.

Pallbearers were Harlan Bergeman, Roland Quicker, Leland Dopp, Clarence Nowack, Douglas Crandall and Emil Tykac. The flower girls were Leilah Dopp, Margaret Beeckler, Mrs. Roland Quicker, and Mrs. Emil Tykac.
