Brehm, Herbert (1892 - 26 Sept. 1930)

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon for the late Herbert Brehm, son of Ed. Brehm, who passed away early Friday morning at Chippewa Falls where he had been taken late Thursday. Death was caused by a ruptured appendix, following an illness of less than a week. The body was brought to the Carl Reyer home where funeral services were conducted by Rev. F. M. Blish at one o’clock and later at the Methodist Episcopal church in Colby. Burial followed in the Colby cemetery.

The pallbearers were Elroy Brehm, Oscar Zarnke, Morris Rein, Lawrence Olson, Arthur Graumann and Paul Zarnke. Four cousins acted as flower girls.

The deceased was born on a farm near Cherokee thirty eight years ago and lived in the community all of his life. During the past few years he has been making his home on the old home farm with his brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Otto Brehm, until his illness when he was brought to the home of his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Beyer at Cherokee. He is survived by his father, Ed. Brehm, three sisters, Mrs. Carl Reyer, Cherokee, and Mrs. Julius Smith and Miss Sylvia Brehm of Chicago; and two brothers, E. A. Brehm and Otto Brehm, both of the town of Hull.
