Wisniewski, Barbara J. (13 Feb. 1929 - MAR 1946)

Students and classmates of Barbara Jane Wisniewski, 17 year old high school student of the Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) High School, were shocked as were other friends and relatives, when they learned that the girl had succumbed to a heart attack while awaiting the arrival of the school bus last week.

It was known by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lucien Wisniewski and friends of the girl that she was troubled with a heart condition, but she had apparently been in normal health when she left her home enroute for school. She had walked from her home to the waiting place for the bus in the Town of Maplehurst, a distance of about a mile, when she was suddenly felled by the fatal attack.

Immediately upon the arrival of the bus, its driver, Courtland Hamer, made a futile attempt to revive the girl by means of artificial respiration.
