Herrmann, Alfred Gust (3 Apr. 1886 - 18 June 1941)

Alfred Gust Herrmann died at the Marshfield hospital Wednesday morning at 6:45 at the age of 55 years, a heart ailment being the cause of his death. Funeral services will be held Saturday at the home at 1:15 P.M. and at the First Evangelical and Reformed church at 2:00 P.M., Rev. S. A. Schmiechen officiating, and internment will be made in the Colby, Wisconsin cemetery.

The deceased was born in the town of Colby on April 3, 1886, on the farm where he and his family were living. He is a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Gustave Herrmann. He was married to Elsie Volkmar on June 22, 1921 at Colby which union was blessed with four children.

Surviving are his wife, and children - Richard, age 19, Evelyn, 17, Verna, 15, Glen, 4, all at home. Also two sisters and one brother - Mrs. Ed. Zillmann of Colby, Mrs. Chas. Schmidt of Milan and Oscar Herrmann of Colby, Wis. One brother, Will, died three years ago.

The deceased was operated on for appendicitis three weeks ago and was getting along nicely. He was expected home the end of the week but was taken suddenly ill Wednesday morning. He was a fine Christian, a good husband, father and neighbor and well liked by all who knew him. This is attested by the numerous offices he held. He was a director of the Security State Bank a number of years, a soil conservation committeeman, president of the Colby Co-operative cheese factory, director of the Harmony Co-operative Produce Company, deacon of the First Evangelical and Reformed Church and treasurer at the time of his death. He was a faithful member of the church and was very enthusiastic over re-building the church which burned last winter.
