May, Minnie (8 Feb. 1894 - 22 Feb. 1950)

Neillsville, Wisconsin - Unconscious for a week, Mrs. George May, 56, a semi-invalid, died Wednesday at the Neillsville hospital.

Officials said her death was due to a cerebral hemorrhage, probably induced when she collapsed February 14 after a man allegedly broke into here home on the outskirts of Neillsville. She never regained consciousness.

The man, Herbert Schembel, of Neillsville, is at liberty under $200 bond after pleading innocent to a charge of malicious destruction of property. He is accused of breaking down the door of Mrs. May’s home. Her husband was at work in Wisconsin Rapids at the time.
