Sladich, Joseph H. (21 MAR 1876 - 20 MAR 1953)

Joseph H. Sladich, 76, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), Wis., who had been making his home with his daughter Mrs. Anthony (Ann) Blatnik of Johnson's Hollow, Fayette City, Pa., since late last spring died of complications in the Charleroi-Moneren Hospital on Friday, March 20, 1953 at 12:15 a.m.

He was born in Brezovov, St. Kriz by Litiji, Yugoslavia, on March 21, 1876 and came to the United States 52 years ago. He had resided in West Virginia and Whittett and on Oct. 10, 1903 he married the former Johanna Voye, also of Yugoslavia, who survives. The couple would have celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary this year. He was a coal miner by trade until 1913, when he moved his family to Wisconsin and took up farming until his retirement six years ago, because of ill health.

Mr. Sladich was a member of St. Edward's Roman Catholic Church of Fayette City, the Slovene National Benefit Society Lodge No. 108 and the Croatian Fraternal Union, Lodge No. 605 of Willard, Wis.

Surviving, in addition to his wife, are five sons, Rudolph of Willard; Alvin of Fayette City, Pa.; Philip of Klamath Falls, Ore.; Ignatius and Frank of Greenwood, Wisconsin; and one daughter, Mrs. Anton (Anna) Blatnik of Fayette City, Pa.; three brothers, Albin Sladich of Irwin, and Anthony and Sylvester in Europe, and fifteen grandchildren.

Friends were received at the McCrory Funeral Home. Services were held there Monday, March 23 at 9:00 a.m., followed by a Requiem High Mass at 9:30 a.m. in St. Edward's Church, with the Rev Charles W. Ribick as celebrant. Interment followed in the Belle Vernon Cemetery.
