Lezotte, Adolphus (27 Apr 1860 - 28 May
[In this obituary Adolphus LeZotte is referred to as Murrey Lezotte.]
Mr. Murrey Lezotte passed to the great
beyond last Tuesday morning, May 28, while his wife and two
children stood by the bedside with friends, very quietly and
without a struggle. He had suffered since last November with
cancers of the stomach. Three months his doctor advised an
operation. He was taken to the Marshfield hospital and
underwent an operation. The case being so bad there was no
help, he returned to his family to await the end. During his
sickness he was always very patient and bravely bore his suffering
to the end. His family mourns a kind and good man and his
neighbors and friends a good neighbor, and the heartfelt sympathy
is extended to the bereaved family.
Mr. Lezotte was born in Canada, April 27, 1860, being 52 years, 1 month and 1 day old. When 5 years old he came with his parents to Neillsville, Wis., where he remained until 33 years old. He then married May Bickmore of Neillsville. In 1899 with his family came to Tioga, Wis., and in 1904 removed to Nasonville. At the time of his last sickness and death he owned the farm known as the N.E. Hillebert farm. He leaves to mourn his untimely death, his wife and two children, one son, Walter, aged 17, and one daughter, Leah, aged 14, also five brothers Mathew of Fort Atkinson, Anthony and Joseph of Neillsville, John of Mercer, Charles of Montana, and one sister, Mrs. Katherine Yankee, of Tony, all of whom were present at the funeral, except John and Charles and the sister, as it was impossible for them to get here. A short service was held at the house Thursday afternoon by Rev. H. Lathian. The remains were taken to Neillsville at 6 o’clock Friday morning, in charge of Geo. Eyers and C.A. Ingle, to the Catholic church for a short service, where the rest of the relatives were in waiting. He having died in the Catholic faith was laid to rest beside his parents in the Catholic grounds. Father Dorrenbach of Neillsville officiated. The pall bearers were Geo. Eyers, Elan McGinnis, Frank Kidder, Fred Anderson, Agness Rense and Andrew Hansen.
