Krom, Ben (11 SEP 1873 - 5 NOV 1952)


Ben Krom passed away while asleep about two a.m. Wednesday morning at Luther Hospital, Eau Claire, where he had been a patient for one week.  His health had been poor for the past several years and during the past year spent a great deal of time in various hospitals.  He was 81 years of age.


Funeral services will be held tomorrow, Friday, Nov. 7th, in Chicago and burial made in the family lot where his wife and two sons, Sol and George are also buried.


Mr. Krom’s acquaintances extend far beyond the community of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), as he was a pioneer resident and businessman of the Withee community, coming here more than 50 years ago.  He owned and operated many farms during the past years and was a dealer in livestock.


He is survived by two sons, Milton and Harold of Withee, and one brother, Morris, also of Withee.


A complete obituary will appear in the Enterprise next week.
