Pierce, Anna M. #2 (15 MAY 1868 - 13 JUL 1945)


Anna Marilla Gleason was born May 15, 1868 at Wautoma, Wis., and passed away at the Neillsville Hospital July 13, 1945, at the age of 77 years, 1 month and 28 days.  She was one of a family of four children of Mr. and Mrs. George Gleason.


At the age of two years, she came with her parents to Humbird (Clark Co., Wis.), where she grew to young womanhood.  On Dec. 23, she was united in marriage to Mr. Daniel Pierce, and to this union were born nine children, four of whom preceded her in death.  Her husband passed away Dec. 19, 1927.


Surviving are one son, Earl of Neillsville; and four daughters: Mrs. James Hardwick, Humbird; Mrs. Alfred Frank, Merrillan; Mrs. Art Meinholdt, Neillsville; and Mrs. Thos. Finch, Tomah; and two brothers: George Gleason, Waubay, S.D., and Henry Gleason, Humbird.  There are twenty-one grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, besides many other relatives.


Mrs. Pierce was a lifelong resident of this vicinity, and many old neighbors and friends assembled at the town hall Tuesday afternoon for the burial service, quite a number coming from other places.  Numerous fine floral offerings expressed both sympathy and esteem.  Rev. Robert W. Sachtjen officiated at the service, using as a text portions of the first and last verses of the 90th Psalm.  Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Waters sang "Have Thin Owen Way, Lord," "The Touch of His Hand," and "The Old Rugged Cross."  Miss Simons was accompanist.  Pallbearers were John Bell, A.L. Sparkes, Peter Kubaskie, Stave Kubaskie, August Johnson, and Melvin Walker.  Burial was in Mentor Cemetery.
