Mrs. Louise Schmitt died early last Thursday morning at the Marathon county hospital where she had been confined the past three years, at the age of 77 years, a lingering illness being the cause of her death. Funeral services were held at St. Mary’s church Saturday morning, Rev. Frank Brickl officiating, and internment was made in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery. Pall bearers were Walter Gasch, Cletus Schraufnagel, Ben Apfelbeck, Joe Kunzem John Hofman and Ed Hofman.
