Mrs. Theodore Sommer passed away at her home in the town of Green Grove, Wisconsin, Tuesday morning at 11:20, cancer being the cause of her departure to the distant shore.

Internment will be made in the parish cemetery.

The deceased was born in the town of Green Grove on Feb. 24, 1892, thus reaching the age of 49 years, nine months and one day. Her maiden name was Herta Woik and she was married to Theo. Sommer in Green Grove in June, 1915.

Mrs. Sommer is survived by her husband and six children - Donald Sommer of Atwood, Mrs. Elmer Schuette of Riplinger, Mrs. Harley Hardrath of Owen, and Vernon, Marilyn and Marlyn at home; five brothers and three sisters - Arthur Sommer, Mrs. Richard Glenzer, Ernest Woik, Anton Woik, Paul Woik and Alvin Woik, all of Green Grove, and Mrs. John McLaughlin and Mrs. Frank Nedley of Milwaukee.
