Obit: Tomek, Wenzel (1830 - 1906)




----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 1/3/1907



Not a few of the people of Greenwood, Clark County were startle last Thursday, Dec. 27, 1906, by news of the sudden death of Wenzel Tomek, one of our oldest citizens, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. F. H. Pfunder.

While Mr. Tomek had been troubled a good deal the past year with rheumatism contracted years ago, he was able to be up and around most of the time. The night preceding his death, he was troubled with pains in his stomach, which confined him to his room Thursday, but there was no direct indication of serious illness, to Mrs. Pfunder. A few minutes before his death he was to the kitchen for some tobacco and was found shortly afterward, about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, dead, sitting in his chair as though dozing.

The remains were taken to Two Rivers, Wis., Saturday, by Mrs. Pfunder and son Malcom, the funeral service being held Monday at St. Luke's Church in that city, of which society he was a member.

The deceased was born Aug. 2, 1830 in the village of Stanovitic, Bohemia and came to Baltimore, Md. In 1870. A year later he moved to Nero, Manitowoc County, Wis., where his wife died seven years ago. Tow years after her death he came to Greenwood to spend the remaining years of his life with his daughter. He was the father of six children, four of whom died in infancy. One son, Wenzel of Manitowoc, also survives.
