Funeral services for Gust Uhlig, 87, who died Friday morning, were held Monday afternoon at 2:00 o’clock at the Zink Funeral Home. The Rev. Lillian Jensen officiated and the Misses Jessie and Blanche Merrill provided the music. 

Six grand sons served as pallbearers at the internment, made in Pine Hill cemetery, Curtiss. They were Alfred, Charles, Delbert, Gerald, Norbert and Robert Uhlig. 

Relatives and friends attending the funeral were from Duluth, Glidden, Marshfield, Colby, Dorchester, Dancy, Curtiss, Pittsville, Mellen, Milladore, Milwaukee, Coon Rapids, Minn., and Boone, Iowa. 

Gust Uhlig was born June 15, 1871, in Germany. When he came to the United States, he engaged in farming in the Colby area. In 1918, he moved to another farm in the town of Mayville and lived there about 20 years. 

On March 27, 1901, he was married to Frieda Teichert. In 1938 they left the farm and moved to the village of Abbotsford and was employed at the Streckert Manufacturing Company for five years before retiring. He had been in failing health for some time and death, apparently, came in his sleep. 

Surviving him are his widow and four sons, George Uhlig, Pittsville; William Uhlig, Colby; Emil Uhlig, Dorchester; Alvin Uhlig, Abbotsford; 22 grand children, 20 great grand children, and two brothers, William Uhlig, Glidden, and Paul Uhlig, Boone, Iowa. 

Two children, Gorman and Norman Uhlig, and two sisters, Mrs. William (Elizabeth) Volkmar, and Mrs. John (Meta) Tangeman, preceded him in death.
