Berry, Mabel (27 July 1889 - 10 Nov. 1949)

Funeral services for Mrs. William L. Berry, who died at her home last Thursday morning at the age of 60 years after an illness of two years, were held Sunday afternoon at 1:30 o’clock at the Lulloff Funeral Home and at 2:00 0’clock at the Methodist church, Rev. F. J. Smith officiating, and internment was made in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery. Audrey Whitney and Annabelle Klaar, accompanied by Miss Rena Bauer, sang "Moment by Moment." Pall bearers were Charles Lindboe of Stetsonville, Harvey Bitter of Abbotsford, C. R. Whitney, Harry Bender, C. A. Nelsen and Fred Schwierske. Flowers were in charge of Mrs. Monroe Bunnell, Mrs. Goerge Brown, Mrs. William Garbrecht and Mrs. Jack Weideman, all of Abbotsford, Mrs. Abe Strebe of Marshfield, Mrs. Joe Moore of Wisconsin Rapids, Mrs. Harry Bender, Mrs. Frank Jackson and Mrs. Harvey Meacham, all of Colby, Wis.

The deceased, the former Mabel Hanson, was born in Marsailes, Ill., on July 27th, 1889, and was married to William Berry in Dorchester on May 16th, 1908. They lived in Abbotsford until 11 years ago when they moved to Colby where Mr. Berry operated the Midget City Meat Market until two years ago. Mrs. Berry was a member of the Methodist church, of the WSCS, American Legion Auxiliary and the WBA lodge.

Besides her husband, she is survived by a son, Walter Berry of Loyal, three daughters, Mrs. Kenneth Kratochweill (Joyce) of Muscoda, Mrs. Allen (Birdell) Brehm of Whiting, Ind., and Mrs. Ben (Lenore) Riplinger of Rockford, Ill.

Mrs. Berry was a good Christian, always ready to lend a helping hand wherever needed, and of an affectionate disposition, bright and winning in her ways, so that friendship’s circle was to her a large one.
