Funeral services were held Saturday at the Georgas Funeral Home and 2 o’clock at St. John’s Lutheran Church for Philip Genteman, 64, who died January 13 (1949), at the Mount View Sanitarium, Wausau. Burial was made in the Neillsville City Cemetery. The Rev. Adolph Schumann officiated.

Mr. Genteman was born July 16, 1884, in Austria. He received his education in Germany and was married there in 1908. He came to the United States in 1912 and located in Chicago, where he lived about a year. He then moved to the township of Levis, where he farmed until 1922. At that time he returned to Chicago, where he was employed by the Oscar Meyer (Mayer) Company for 18 years.

In 1940 Mr. Genteman returned to the farm and resided with his son, William, until he entered the sanitarium recently.
