Harriman, Will (16 Feb. 1880 - 27 Mar. 1945)
Word reached Mrs. Maude Weller of Neillsville last week of the sudden death of her youngest brother, Will Harriman, in Vista, Cal., where he and his wife had resided on a fruit farm since he was retired about two years ago from the forestry service in Oregon. Funeral services were conducted March 31 in Vista. Burial took place in Engelwood cemetery, Los Angeles, on Easter Sunday.
Will Harriman, the youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Albert Harriman, was born on his parent’s farm near Christie, and was at death about 63 years of age. His parents moved to Neillsville, residing for many years in the home on South Grand avenue, now the home of Mrs. Weller. Will attended the Neillsville schools, and taught school in this community several years before entering the forestry service. He visited relatives here two years ago, soon after his retirement.
He is survived by his wife and two children, Helen, Mrs. Paul Kiepe, Los Angeles, and William, Jr., who has served for some time in the coast guard.
Also surviving are two sisters and a brother, Mrs. Weller of Neillsville; Mrs. Grace Callender, Victor, Mont., and W. H. Harriman of Madison.
Mr. Harriman’s death was very sudden. He had worked during the day on his fruit farm, and expressed the intention of taking a bath. As he did not return, his wife went to look for him, and found him lying dead on the bed.
