Albert, Charles (25 JUL 1860 - 29 FEB 1940)
Charles Albert, 79, died at the Marshfield Hospital at eleven-thirty o’clock Thursday evening, Feb. 29th, 1940, after undergoing an operation for ruptured appendix. Death was caused by peritonitis resulting from the rupture.
Mr. Albert has been a resident of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.) for the past forty-six years. When first arriving here he was employed by his brother, Albert Albert in Thorp’s first creamery, and later operated the farm in the Town of Thorp for ten years before moving to the village. Since that time he and Mrs. Albert ran a little grocery. About ten years ago Mr. Albert lost his eyesight.
Always cheerful despite his affliction, his friendly greeting and ready wit will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
Chas. Albert was born in Horicon, Wis., Dodge Co., on July 25, 1860, the eldest of twelve children of Charles and Augusta Albert. He attended the Horicon High School and in 1883 was united in marriage to Emma Ende. One son was born to this union. He was married to Minnie Ende of Horicon on March 30, 1891, who, with his son George Albert of Stratford, survive him. Other relatives surviving are three brothers, Theodore of Withee, Adolph of Vesper, and Alvin of New Holstein; two sisters, Mrs. Wm. Lawson of New Holstein, Wis. and Alvina Albert of Pittsville, three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
He was a member of the Odd Fellows Fraternity for fifty-eight years and an active member of the Forest Queen Lodge No. 321 of Thorp.
Funeral services were held on last Sunday afternoon at the Bogumill Funeral Home here and were conducted by the Odd Fellows Lodge members and Rev. Jas. Irish, pastor of the M.E. Church. The remains were taken the same evening to Horicon, Wis., where services at the grave were conducted on Monday afternoon by the Horicon Odd Fellows Lodge.
