Komberec, Agnes (30 Aug. 1896 - 21 Jul. 1949)
Funeral services were held at Milladore Saturday morning for Mrs. Arthur J. Komberec, 52, Spencer route 1, who passed away at 10:30 o’clock Thursday morning at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, as the result of a skull fracture and a badly fractured right arm and right leg. The injuries were received an hour earlier when she was struck by a car about 3 ½ miles north of Spencer on Highway 13.
The accident occurred when Mrs. Komberec, who had been at the mailbox at the Henry Wydevan farm, where she and her husband had been employed recently, stepped out from behind a passing gasoline truck directly into the path of a car driven by Mrs. Louis Nacker of Abbotsford, Wis.
Mrs. Nacker said she sounded the horn and swung her car to the left and to the right and back again in an effort to avoid the accident but the victim was apparently confused and kept going back and forth in the road also. Marathon County Coroner, after questioning witnesses, absolved Mrs. Nacker of blame and said no inquest would be held.
Mrs. Komberec was born in Lawndale, Minn., Aug. 30, 1896 and lived in Necedah and Milladore prior to coming to the Wydevan farm last February.
Surviving besides her husband are two daughters and several brothers and sisters.
Note: Mrs. Komberec’s first name was found in a Wood County cemetery list on this site.
