Burial was made at Riverside Cemetery. Serving as pallbearers were Alan Burhop, J. Kollmansberger, A. Raek, Dennis Newman, Paul Heinz and Chester Nurva.
Mrs. Rhoor, nee Florence Fencher, was born on March 15, 1896, at Waupaca. In 1917 she was united in marriage to John Rhoor with the couple establishing their home on a farm in the Town of Green Grove (Clark Co., Wis.) where they resided until five years ago when they moved into the city of Owen.
