Warnke, Bertha Marie (21 January 1881 - 22 March 1955) 

Mrs. Bertha Warnke, 74, former Greenwood resident, died Tuesday at Memorial Hospital, Neillsville. 

Mrs. Warnke, nee Bertha Marie Engel, was born January 21, 1881, in Mayville, where she received her education.  Over 50 years ago she was married to Amil R. Warnke, who died in 1932. 

The couple lived on a farm southeast of here for several years; then on a farm 4 ½ miles southwest of here until 1917.  Then they moved to this city, where Mr. Warnke operated a feed mill and warehouse. The past 1 ½ years Mrs. Warnke made her home with Mrs. Anna Kleckner at Neillsville.  She was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church and its Ladies Aid Society. 

Mrs. Warnke is survived by two daughters, Mrs. James (Lillie) Hare of Niles, Mich., and Mrs. Paul (Norma) Minsaas of Greenwood; one sister, Miss Anna Engel, Glendale, Calif.; two brothers, Henry Engel, Stevensville, Mont., and Albert Engel, California; 13 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.  

Funeral services were held Friday at the Trinity Lutheran Church with the Rev. H. F. Brauer officiating.  Burial was made in the Greenwood Cemetery. 

Pallbearers were four grandsons, Lawrence Warnke, Gale, James and Ronnie Minsaas, also Gordon Oldham and Donald Lenz.
