The Death of Otto and Arthur Krueger and their Wives
FUNERAL HELD FOR ACCIDENT VICTIMS
(By News-Herald Correspondent)
Curtiss--Funeral service for Mr. and Mrs. Otto Krueger, and Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Krueger, who were killed Feb. 7, 1943, in an auto-train accident at the Atwood railroad crossing, were held Thursday afternoon at First Evangelical Reformed Church, Colby, the Rev. David Grether officiating.
Because the church was too small to accommodate the crowd, loudspeakers were installed in the church basement and parish hall. Members of the Reformed and Evangelical Ladies Aid Society of Curtiss had charge of the many floral offerings, and four bearers carried the bodies to Pine Hill cemetery in Curtiss, where interment took place.
Among those from out of tow at the funeral were Mrs. Nels Gramholm, Chicago; Mrs. Lena Geiger and Mrs. Louise Cole, Milwaukee; Ernest Baumgarten, Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Weller, Tigerton; Mrs. Arthur Tinker, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Straude, and Mr. and Mrs. Peter Miller, Oshkosh.
