The place will be decided upon after the arrival of a son from New York, Friday. The body is lying in state at the Lulloff Funeral Home at Colby, Wis.

Mrs. Schmidt had suffered a stroke in July, but was able to be up again. She suffered another stroke Wednesday, around noon, as she was preparing a meal. Death occurred enroute to Memorial hospital, Wausau, about 3:30 that afternoon.
