Lillian Froebel (6 Feb 1903 – 16 Sep 1954)

Funeral services for Mrs. Otto Froebel, 51, were held from St. Peter’s Lutheran church here today, with the Rev. F. H. Sprengler, pastor, officiating at the rites at 2:00 p.m. Miss Shirley Sprengler was organist at the services, and accompanied Miss Janis Zier, who sang “In a Garden” and “Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me.”

Burial was in Dorchester Memorial cemetery under direction of Fuchsgruber Funeral Service which had charge of arrangements. Pallbearers were Galen Marcott, Kenneth Marcott, Elmer Voitlander, Fred Rahn, William Jantsch and August Sauter.

Mrs. Froebel, who had been ill for some time past, died in St. Joseph’s hospital, Marshfield, at 2:30 a.m. Monday. She had been intermittently hospitalized for treatment of her illness the past several months, and had entered the hospital again on Sunday of this week. She lay in state at the Fuchsgruber funeral parlors here until shortly before time of the services today.

Lillian May Clary was born Feb 6, 1903 at Richland Center, where she was reared and received her education. She and Otto Froebel were married in Rockford, Ill., on July 8, 1926, and soon afterward moved to this area where they resided 24 years prior to her death. About three years ago, they moved from a farm in the Curtiss community to this village. She was a member of St. Peter’s Lutheran church.

Her widower and a daughter, Lillie May, both of this village, survive, as do two brothers: Martin Clary, Santa Rosa, Calif., and Willard Clary, Summit, S. Dak.; two sister: Mrs. Emery (Harriet) Roe, Beloit, and Mrs. James (Pauline) Bukoskie, Baraboo. One daughter preceded her in death. Also surviving are her step-mother, Mrs. Lulu Clary, a half-brother, James Clary, and a half-sister, Novene Clary.
