Schuld, John J. (21 APR 1876 - 27 APR 1939)

John J. Schuld, 63, a resident of this community for almost his entire lifetime, passed away at his home in This Village at 7 A. M. last Wednesday. Death followed a sudden heart attack. He had apparently been in good health up to the time of the attack.

Mr. Schuld was born in Jefferson on April 21, 1876, and came to this community with his parents when still a small boy, settling with them on a farm south of this Village at Pelsdorf.

He was married to Miss Mary Bohm here in the fall of 1907, and they lived on a farm in the Pelsdorf community until 19 years ago, when they came to Loyal Village. A year later they purchased the 10-acre tract here which was operated as a chicken ranch.

Funeral services were held at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church at 9 A. M. last Saturday, Father Aloys Zinthefer officiating. Burial took place in the parish cemetery. Pall bearers were Philip Beaver, Roman Braun, Chas. Davel, Leo Theisen, O. W. Trindal, and Joseph Wedl.

The deceased is survived by his wife and three daughters: Mrs. Harold (Phyllis) Laufenberg, Milwaukee; Mrs. Anzelm (Florence) Migawa, Eau Claire; and Elizabeth Schuld, at home. Surviving also are four granddaughters, three brothers, Otto, Frank, and Albert, of Madison, South Dakota, and a sister, Mrs. E. H. Christiansen, Loyal.

Mr. Schuld (most of us knew him as John of J. J.) was well liked. His sudden passing has saddened the hearts of many because it took from our midst a true friend. He was a life of honesty, uprightness, and neighborliness. e leaves a wide circle of friends who held him in high esteem.

Among the relatives and friends from out of town who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Christiansen (visiting at Madison, South Dakota when Mr. Schuld passed away); Mr. and Mrs. Norton Spuhler, Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Laufenberg and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. John Steger and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Gravitter and son, and Alvin Schuld all of Marshfield; Mr. and Mrs. Harold Laufenberg of Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Migawa of Eau Claire, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Migawa and son Marshal of Fairchild; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kelly of Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. Leander Weismann of Jefferson; Frank, Albert, and Otto Schuld of Madison, South Dakota.
