Loos, William (27 Feb. 1870 - 21 Jan. 1940)

William Loos, a prominent and well known farmer of the town of Colby, died Sunday evening at 6:30 o’clock, heart trouble of six weeks duration being the cause of his departure to the distant shore. Funeral services were held at 1:45 o’clock Wednesday afternoon at the Lulloff Funeral Home and at 2:00 o’clock at the First Evangelical and Reformed church, Rev. S. A. Schmiechen officiating and internment was made in the Colby cemetery. Pall bearers were Ed. Frome, Hugo Hafeman, Angus Lamont, Victor Frane, Clarence Olson and Wm. Harry. Those in charge of the flowers were Mrs. Sam Yelke, Mrs. Emil Wolk, Mrs. Paul Drager, Mrs. August Schoetzel, Mrs. Oscar Dittmeyer and Mrs. Gaylord Pipcorn.

The deceased was born in the town of Schleswig, Manitowoc county, on February 27, 1870, thus reaching the age of 69 years, 10 months and 25 days. He was married to Anna Voelker, daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Fred Voelker, in the town of Schleswig on March 26, 1894. To this union, six children were born. One son preceded in death many years ago and a daughter, Flora, in 1894.

Mr. and Mrs. Loos came to their present home 35 years ago and engaged in the business of farming.

Surviving are his wife, one son and three daughters - Mrs. Lilah Lueloff of Fond du Lac, Wisc., Walter Loos of Colby, Mrs. Edgar Williams of Colby, and Mrs. Ervin Fischer of Marshfield, Wis. Also one brother, Emil Loos, of Colby, 14 grand children and two great grand children. Two brothers and one sister preceded him in death.

Out of town people here for the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Otto Stoetling, Theo Voigt and two daughters, Herman Voelker and Mrs. Ida Loos, all of Kiel, and Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Voight of Milwaukee.

The deceased was numbered among our prominent and industrious farmers, always endeavoring to perform his duties as he saw them. He was a good Christian, a devoted husband, a kind and indulgent father and honest in all his dealings. His step never failed in caring for and ministering to those who were in any way dependent upon him.
