Patey, Sydney G. (25 March 1878 - 23 May 1961)


Sydney G. Patey, 83, widely known and highly respected insurance salesman in Neillsville for many years, died Tuesday afternoon as a result of complications.  He had been a hospital patient in Marshfield since May 6.


Funeral services will be held at 2:30 p.m. Friday from the United Church of Christ in Neillsville.  The Rev. Frank B. Harcey will officiate.  Burial will be made in the Neillsville City Cemetery.


The body will be in state at the church from 1 p.m. Friday.


Mr. Patey had been a resident of Neillsville for 40 years, coming here in 1921 from Kansas, where he had worked as a salesman.


A native of Cuba City, he was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Patey.  He was born March 25, 1878.  He attended school in Dubuque, Ia., and served as secretary of the young Men’s Christian Association in that city before entering the sales field.


A member of the United Church of Christ here, Mr. Patey served for many years as Sunday school superintendent and Sunday school teacher in the Congregational Church before a merger of that congregation with Zion Evangelical and Reformed Church.


He was married June 28, 1916, to the former Olive Oberhultzer in Platteville.  She survives, as does a son, Dan of Neillsville, four grandchildren; and a brother, William Patey, who lives in Arizona.
