Nicholas Ganger, 86, of Neillsville, who had been in poor health for several months, died Monday in Neillsville. Funeral services will be held today (Thursday) at 10:30 a.m. from St. Mary’s Catholic Church, of which he was a member. The Rev. George M. Nelson will officiate.

Mr. Gangler was born February 14, 1881, in Clark County. His parents were the late John and Catherine (Marx) Gangler. He attended schools in the Neillsville area. He was married July 22, 1903, in Chicago, Ill., to Cora Williams.

In 1907 the family moved to Neillsville, where he worked for seven years for the old Cash Hardware Company. He later opened his own variety store on Neillsville’s main street, which he operated for 22 years. After selling the store, he bought the Northside Store from the late Gust Deutsch, which he operated for 30 years until his retirement in 1966.

Mr. Gangler is survived by a son, Clarence; and a daughter, Mrs. Garald (Lillian) Hart, both of Neillsville. Other survivors are three brothers, Matt and Peter of Chicago, Ill, and Joe of Valdosta, Ga.; three grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
