Mossing, Hans P. (26 Nov. 1890 - 3 Oct. 1950)

Funeral services for Hans P. Mossing, proprietor of the Colby creamery and buttermaker here for the past 14 years, whose death was reported last week, were held Sunday afternoon at the Zion Lutheran church in Colby, Wis., Rev. O. Hoffmann officiating, and burial was made in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery. Mr. Mossing was an ex-service man so the funeral was a military one. Pall bearers were Amercian Legion members - C. R. Whitney, Sr., Carl Sabler, C. A. Nelsen, Frank Goeltz, Sr., Edwin Frome, Sr., and John Gries. Flowers were in charge of members of the Legion Auxiliary - Mrs. C. R. Whitney, Sr., Mrs. Carl Sabler, Mrs. Frank Goeltz, Sr., Mrs. George Kowalk, Mrs. C. A. Nelsen, Mrs. H. W. Reeves, Mrs. Edwin Frome, Sr., and Mrs. Junior Tesmer.

The firing squad consisted of V.F.W. members - John Frane, Ed Allmann, Dave Stieber, Harold Kademan, Arnold Strathman and Mike Stieber, led by Howard Rannow. Legion color bearers were Junior Tesmer and Frank Goeltz, Jr., and V.F.W. color bearers were Angus Lamont, Jr., and Milford Frome. Color guards were Ernest Schultz, Carl Laube and Norbert Diedrich. Audrey Whitney sounded taps.

Mr. Mossing was born in Aasen, Norway, Nov. 26, 1890, and came to the United States when 18 years of age and was engaged in butter making in this country. He was married on October 24, 1922, at Rock Dell, Minn., to Claudia Hatlestad. He died at St. Mary’s Hospital, Rochester, Minn., Oct. 3, 1950.

Surviving are his widow; two sons, Howard C. Mossing of Milwaukee and Everett at home; a sister, Mrs. Elsie Strom of Hibbing, Minn., and a brother, Ole Mossing, who lives in Norway. One son, Donald, preceded him in death 12 years ago.

The deceased was a member of the American Legion post of Colby and Zion Lutheran church. Being of a friendly, honest and congenial disposition, he will be sadly missed not only by his family but a host of friends.
