Fredrickson, Herbert Theodore (24 Feb. 1915 - 6 Mar. 1957)

Herbert Theodore Fredrickson of Curtiss, age 42, who was critically injured in a two-car collision at Owen March 5th, died at the Marshfield, Wisconsin Hospital last week Wednesday.

Fredrickson’s car collided almost head-on with one driven by Adolph Violetta, of Negaunee, Mich., age 47, at the Owen east city limits. Violetta’s wife, Fannis, age 47, was treated for a hip injury and facial cuts at the Owen Clinic. Her husband escaped injury.

Funeral services for Fredrickson were held Saturday afternoon at the Evangelical Lutheran church at Curtiss, Rev. Max E. Wilhelm officiating, and burial was made at Stanley. Mrs. Robert Mattsen and Mrs. Opal Peissig, accompanied by Mrs. Max Wilhelm, sang "Under His Wings" and "I’m But a Stranger Here." Pall bearers were Armin Peterson, Delmar Augustine, Edgar Linzer, Norbert Bruchert, Murine Anderson and Arnold Anderson. Flowers were in charge of Mrs. Henry Peterson, Mrs. Delmar Augustine, Mrs. Ralph Peterson, Mrs. Floyd Klemetson and Mrs. Leroy Braitwaite.

Mr. Fredrickson was born in Brown county February 24, 1915, and engaged in cheese making in Clark and Wood counties before moving to Curtiss a year ago where he was employed by the Owen Dairy Company. He married Evelyn Nerdrum on August 27, 1946, at Stanley.

Besides his wife, he leaves two step sons, Robert and Gerald, and a daughter, all at home; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Fredrickson of Pewaukee; two sisters, Mrs. Delmar (Marie) Bradhagen and Mrs. Donald (Bernice) Brumbaugh, both of Marshfield; one brother, Ralph Fredrickson of Norfolk, Va., who were all here for the funeral. Others attending were a large number of relatives and friends from Stanley, Cadott, Withee, Milwaukee, Marshfield, Indianapolis, Ind., and Waterloo, Ia.

No inquest will be held in the death, it was reported by Robert Lulloff, Clark county coroner.
