Funeral services were held November 19, in Wisconsin Rapids for Mrs. Maria Theresia Hefty, 91, former Granton resident, who died November 17, at the Wood County Infirmary, where she had made her home since August 24, 1957.


Mrs. Hefty, a former member of the Ladies’ Aid Society of Zion Evangelical & Reformed Church in Neillsville, had suffered from a lingering illness.  For seven and one-half years prior to going to the Wood County Infirmary, she had made her home with a daughter, Mrs. Arthur Hohenstein of Nekoosa.

Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Hohenstein and Mrs. Barbara Cattanach, also of Nekoosa; a son, Joseph Hefty of Granton; seven grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
