Wolfe, Verlyn Douglas (8 Oct. 1930 - 24 Aug. 1955)

Verlyn Douglas Wolfe died at his home in Loyal, Wisconsin last week Wednesday at the age of 24 years. He broke his leg about two months ago and death is believed to be due to resulting complications. Funeral services were held at the First Evangelical and Reformed church in Colby Saturday afternoon, Rev. V. O. Grosshuesch officiating, and internment was made in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery. Pall bearers were James Helm, Richard Witte, Wilbur Witte, William Marten, Merlin Demo and Delmer Pieper. Flowers were in charge of Miss JoAnne Block, Miss Ruth Wiersig, Mrs. Delores Helm and Mrs. Arlene Widmore.

Mr. Wolfe was born on October 8, 1930 and spent his entire life in the Loyal area with the exception of two years in the armed forces during which time he served in the Korean War. Since his discharge, he had been employed at the Pine Grove Cheese Factory.
