Beyerl, Ambrose (2 May 1892 - 2 Dec. 1930)

Funeral services for Ambrose Beyerl, whose death from blood poisoning at the Chippewa Falls hospital on December 2nd was chronicled in this paper last week, were held at the St. Mary’s Catholic church Saturday morning, December 6th, Rev. H. Lachnit officiating, and internment was made in the Colby cemetery.

The pall bearers were Theodore Brill, E. R. Schultz, Fred Zassenhaus, Henry Schuh, Peter Apfelbeck, and Dr. F. A. Weix.

The deceased, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Beyerl, was born in the town of Colby, on May 2nd, 1892, thus reaching the age of thirty-eight years, six months and twenty days. He attended the rural school and also the St. Mary’s Catholic school and was married to Miss Eva Frane on June 4th, 1919, and made their home on the groom’s farm a few miles west of Colby.

He is survived by his widow, three sons and three daughters, the eldest being but ten years old. His departure is also mourned by three brothers and five sisters, namely: Frank Beyerl, Colby; Louis Beyerl, Colby; Henry Beyerl, California; Mrs. Lorence Weix, Mrs. John Schuh, Mrs. Joseph Schuester, Mrs. Alphonse Bauers, all of Colby, and Sister M. Rosina of Silver Lake convent.

He was a faithful member of the St. Mary’s Catholic church, a hard worker, a devoted husband and a kind and indulgent father; to his friends the soul of fellowship. It was our good fortune to have known him long and well and we only knew him to esteem him more highly as the years passed by. Although he owned and conducted a large farm, he cleared many acres of land every year, and even though he did not come to town very often, we will miss his kindly smile and friendly greeting.

The deceased purchased the farm he owned when it was still a wild piece of land and by hard work cleared it into a splendid farm. At present, seventy acres are under plow.

The out of town people here for the funeral were Mr. Ray Youngbeck, LeRoy; Arnold Bauer, Beaver Dam; J. Demeber, Stratford; Mrs. Joe Frane, Minneapolis; Mike Philippi and Emil Umhoefer, Marshfield; Mr. and Mrs. Irvin Burnet, Spencer; Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Lauer, Marshfield; Mrs. Anna Andrew, Leonard and Viola Andrew, Thorp.
