Carl. Alfred (10 February 1890 - 22 August 1973)

Funeral services were held Friday from St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church for Alfred Carl of Memorial Home, a Neillsville area native who died August 22, at the age of 83. The Rev. Norman W. Lindloff officiated and burial was made in the Neillsville City Cemetery. The Georgas Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

Born on February 10, 1890, in the Neillsville area to Herman and Martha (Martin) Carl, Mr. Carl was educated in area schools. He did farm work locally and also worked in the Minnesota harvest fields as a young man. He returned to Neillsville and was married May 16, 1917, to the former Clara Weiting, who preceded him in death in 1945.

The couple farmed in the Town of Pine Valley until 1936 when they moved to Neillsville. Mr. Carl was employed by the Clark County Highway Department until his retirement. A member of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, he had resided at Memorial Home the past few years because of failing health.

Surviving are three children, Victor Carl of Milwaukee, Mrs. Herbert (Nelda) Voss of Rt. 2 Loyal, and Arnold Carl of Neillsville; a sister, Mrs. Walter (Elizabeth) Borde of Albion; four brothers, Arthur Carl of Neillsville, William Carl of Medical Lake, Wa, Harry Carl of Neillsville and Ernest Carl of Nekoosa; and ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Pallbearers were Harlin, Robert, DuWayne, Herman and Donald Carl and Wilmer Lueck. Mrs. Harold Mayer sang ‘Rock of Ages’ and ‘The Lord Is My Shepherd.’ The accompanist was Victor Lehmann.
