The Loyal Tribune 30 November 1944

Platten, Adam #2 (27 JUN 1859 - 27 NOV 1944)

A requiem high mass for Adam Platten, 86, was read by the Rev. Fr. Aloys Zinthefer at St. Anthony’s Catholic church here at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 27. Mr. Platten passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Anna H. Beaver, where he had spent the last year.

The son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Platten, the deceased was born in Green Bay on June 27, 1859. When he was four years old, the family moved to Manitowoc county, settling on a farm near Nazianz. He continued to live there after his marriage on Nov. 17, 1897, to Miss Helen. Wesling. In 1907 the family moved to a farm between Loyal and Greenwood, where they lived until 1921, when they went to Neillsville. After two years there, he purchased a farm south of Loyal, which he retained until 1927, when he sold out. Since that time he has spent his declining years with his children.

His wife passed away on June 26, 1918, and one daughter, Julia, also preceded him in death. Children who survive are: Mrs. Henry (Olive) Sippel of Fond du Lac, Henry Platten of Farmersburg, Ia., Pete Platten of Clayton, Ia., Mrs. Anna Beaver of Loyal, and Frank Platten with the army in the Admiralty Islands. Also surviving are two sisters, a brother, 21 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Pallbearers were Joe Hecker, Ed Beaver, Frank Wendel, Paul Bauer, Tony Klimmer and John Wehe. Burial was in St. Mary’s cemetery at Greenwood.

The four oldest granddaughters, Esther and Marjorie Beaver and Dorothy and Florella Platten, led the Rosary and Litanies at the home.

Those from out of town who attended the funeral were: Henry Platten and daughters, Delores and Florella, Farmersburg, Ia., Pete Platten of Clayton, Ia., Mr. and Mrs. Henry Sipple of Fond du Lac, Susan Burkard and Pete Platten of St. Nazianz, and Mrs. Joseph Platten of Juneau. Mr. and Mrs. Joe Wesling of Marshfield spent Saturday evening at the Beaver home, and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Schmidtkunz of Colby visited there Sunday because they were unable to attend the funeral.

The Tribune extends to the bereaved its sympathy in the loss of a loved one.
