Theilig, Phillip (7 Feb. 1872 - 1 May 1944)

Phillip Theilig of Colby died Monday night at 8:00 o’clock at St. Joseph’s Hospital at Marshfield at the age of 72 years. He had been a patient there one day and was ill for a week. Death was due to old age complications. About a year and a half age he was gored by a bull and also suffered from a rupture which is believed to have contributed toward hastening his death.

Funeral services will be held Friday at 1:30 P.M. at the Lulloff Funeral Home in Colby, where the body is lying in state, and at 2:00 P.M. at St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran church at Green Grove, Rev. M. C. Goetsch officiating, and internment will be made in the Green Grove cemetery.

Mr. Theilig was born in Milwaukee on Feb. 7, 1872, and came to Colby with his parents when five years old. They moved onto a farm west of Colby, Wis., and he lived there ever since.

Mr. Theilig never was married and is survived by two brothers, George and Herman, of Colby, and two sisters, Miss Amelia Theilig, who kept house for him, and Mrs. Mary Erdman.

The deceased was of a very industrious and congenial disposition, honest in all his dealings and well-liked by all who knew him.
