Ohnemus, Aloysis E. #2 (18 MAR 1892 - 14 AUG 1955)


Aloysis E. Ohnemus, 63, a resident of this community (Owen, Clark Co., Wis.) for 14 years, succumbed to a heart condition and passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Marshfield, on Sunday, Aug. 14, 1955.  Funeral services were held at 9 a.m., Aug. 17, with a requiem mass being said at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Owen, with Fr. Crubel officiating.  Burial was made at Riverside Cemetery.  Serving as pallbearers were five brothers-in-law, Leo Bauer, Albert Frueh, Herman Frueh, Charles Frueh, Earl Frueh, and one nephew, Rhineold Frueh.


Being born on March 18, 1892, on a farm near Melcher, Ia., he spent his early life in this community until his marriage on Nov. 23, 1915 to Theresa Frueh at Bauer, Ia.  Shortly thereafter the couple moved to Minnesota where they lived for three years prior to moving to Wisconsin in 1920.  Twenty years later, in 1940, they moved to this community, settling on a farm in the town of Hoard, just north of Owen, which they purchased in 1944 and resided until last November when they sold out and moved to Mead Township in Clark Co.


In addition to his wife, his passing is mourned by three brothers, Ruben, Newton, Ia., Walter, Terryville, S.D., and Omar of White Salmon, Wash.; two sisters, Mrs. Herbert (Naomi) Dougall, Newton, Ia., and Mrs. Joe (Adeline) Griesbaum, a resident of California; two sons, Mervin, Bracket, Wis., and Melvin, Melcher, Ia.; four daughters, Mrs. Lewis (Evelyn) Walde, Willard, Mrs. Charles (Etha) Arnstad, and Mrs. Leonard (Ethel) Hayden, Eau Claire, and Mrs. Francis (Elaine) Hansen, Withee; and 19 grandchildren; his aged mother and father-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Frueh, and a host of relatives and friends.  One infant grandchild preceded him in death.
