Mrs. Hug (Ella) Kobs, age 61, died at St. joseph’s Hospital, Jan. 19, 1966 at 10 p.m. She was the former Ella Klessig. She attended the public schools here. Her marriage to Hugo Kobs, who preceded her in death in 1959, took place Oct. 20, 1924 at Curtiss.

The couple farmed at Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.) until 1931. They then operated a cheese factory at Granton until 1946. They returned to Curtiss and farmed until 1950, when they moved to Milwaukee.

She is survived by two sons, Kenneth, Marshfield and John H. of Milwaukee, and seven grandchildren; two sisters, Mrs. Herman (Alma) Marquardt, Chicago, Ill.; Mrs. Albert (Dorothy) Mandel, Colby; four brothers, Albert Klessig, Curtiss; Wm.
