Krepsky, Margaret C. (7 Oct. 1907 - 22 Dec. 1956)  

Mrs. George Krepsky, 43, Colby, and her sister-in-law, Miss Margaret C. Krepsky, 49, who was a technician in charge of the laboratory at Milwaukee sanitarium at Wauwatosa, were killed Saturday morning when their car skidded into the path of another car on the wet, fog covered pavement of Highway 41, north of Fond du Lac.  

Louis E. Marks, 68, Oshkosh, driver of the other car, died of injuries shortly after he was admitted to a Fond du Lac hospital.  

Witnesses said that Miss Krepsky, en route to Colby for Christmas, passed a semi-trailer truck, and after her car had regained the right hand lane, it skidded across the center line and was struck broadside by the Marks’ car.  

Services for Miss Krepsky were held at St. Mary’s Catholic church in Colby at 9:30 Wednesday morning with the Rev. John B. Pinion, Pastor, officiating.  

Services for Mrs. Krepsky were held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Zion Lutheran church at Colby. The Rev. William Christian officiated.  

The former Dorothy Schade was born in the Town of Holton, Sept. 25, 1913, and was married at Colby to F. George Krepsky on Oct. 9, 1934. She is survived by her husband; a daughter, Lynn; her mother, Mrs. Mary Schade, Colby; and three brothers, Harold and Elroy, Milwaukee, and Everett, Milan.  

Miss Margaret C. Krepsky was born at Colby Oct. 7, 1907. She attended St. Mary’s Catholic school and the Colby high school before going to St. Theresa’s college at Winona, Minn. Before becoming a technician at the Wauwatosa sanitorium, she had been employed in the same capacity for a number of years at Mercy hospital, Mason City, Iowa.  

She is survived by her mother, Mrs. Hugo Krepsky, Colby; a brother, F. George Krepsky, Colby; and a sister, Mrs. Clarence (Genevieve) Neck, Colby.
