Umlauft, Joseph H. (12 JAN 1874 - 16 DEC 1936)

Funeral services were held at the St. Bernard’s Catholic Church at Abbotsford Saturday morning at 9 for Joseph H. Umlauft, 63, who passed away at the home of his sister, Mr. and Mrs. John Kadonsky in the town of Holton (Marathon Co., Wis.) Wednesday, Dec. 16, 1936. Death was caused by a lingering illness from which Mr. Umlauft suffered for two years. Services were conducted by the Rev. J .J. Nowak and interment took place in the Abbotsford Cemetery.

Joseph H. Umlauft was born in Tyssa, Austria, on Jan. 12, 1874. In 1882 he came to the United States and settled east of Dorchester in the town of Holton where he conducted a lumber business and sawmill for many years. Besides his work here, Mr. Umlauft spent 5 years as a millwright in Oregon and 18 years as an engineer at the Colby Box Factory.

Surviving are his son, Isadore of Abbotsford, one sister, Mrs. John Kadonsky, Abbotsford, and one brother, Rudolph, town of Holton. He is also survived by an aunt, Mrs. Emelie Umlauft, Oshkosh; five nephews and four nieces.

His five nephews, George and Clarence Kadonsky, Irving, Henry and Frank Umlauft, and Bernard Heindl acted as pallbearers at the services.

The many friends of the family who have known Mr. Umlauft for the many years he spent in this vicinity join us in offering deepest sympathy to the family in their loss.
