Mr. Soderberg operated a car exchange at Medford at the time of his death and also was in the same business at Stetsonville and Thorp, several years ago.

He leaves to mourn his untimely demise, one daughter, Ceona L. Soderberg, and one son, Richard, of Thorp, his aged mother, Mrs. Bertia Soderberg, two brothers, Ted R. Soderberg, Marinette, and Arthur Soderberg Sr., Thorp; five sisters, Mrs. Garfield Brown, Stanley, Mrs. Otto Glasshof, Menasha, Mrs. Wm.
