Parkhill, Frank (24 Feb. 1885 - 22 Apr. 1941)

Funeral services for Frank Parkhill of Kauauna, formerly of Abbotsford, Wis., were held Friday afternoon at the home of his sister, Mrs. M. C. Bunnell, and internment was made in the Holton cemetery. Rev. Harry Lee, pastor of the Colby Methodist church, officiated.

The deceased was born in the town of Hull on Feb. 24, 1885, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Eli Parkhill. He attended the Abbotsford grade school. In early manhood, he entered the railroad service which occupation he followed until ill health overtook him. On Feb. 27, 1910, he was united in marriage to Miss Ella Yanke of Dorchester, Wis. They made their home in Abbotsford until 1918 when they moved to Ashland. About five years later they moved to Kaukauna. He passed away at the Appleton hospital on April 22. Mr. Parkhill was a member of the railroad Trainmen and the Odd Fellow Lodge.

Mr. Parkhill is survived by his widow and two sisters - Mrs. (Edith) M. C. Bunnell of Abbotsford and Mrs. Leslie (Lillian) Lamkins of Manawa. An only daughter preceded him in death in infancy.
