Banderob, Herman (19 DEC 1852 - 21 DEC 1925)

Herman Banderob died at his home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Monday, Dec. 21st, 1925, of cancer, aged seventy-three years. Up to a few months ago he had enjoyed good health, when an infection of the stomach caused him to consult medical advice. Unable to retain food he gradually wasted away until the end. During all this time, except the last few days, he suffered but little pain, and attended to his business affairs at his harness shop.

Herman Banderob was born in Sleibz, Germany, on Dec. 19, 1852, and came to this country with his parents when four years of age. The family settled in Calumet County, Wis., and consisted of the parents, six sons and one daughter, Herman being the youngest of the family, all of who have now passed away.

Mr. Banderob was united in marriage to Miss Lena Hipke on Nov. 13, 1873. In 1882 they came to Thorp, locating on a farm in the town of Thorp (now Worden). After ten years residence on the farm they moved to this village, where they have since made their home.

Another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of old settlers. Deceased commanded the respect of the community as the attendance at his funeral fully verified. Generous to a fault, it was perfectly natural for him to do right.

The funeral services were held on Thursday afternoon last from the M. E. Church, Rev. Ernest E. Clark of Lake St. M. E. Church of Eau Claire, officiating, paying a beautiful tribute to the memory of the deceased. Appropriate songs were rendered by Mrs. M. Peeples, Mrs. R. J. Brunner, L. P. Walsdorf and Ray Andrews, Mrs. R. G. Lawrence at the organ. The pallbearers were R. H. Telford, C. W. Wolf, Wm. Wagner, George Zillmann, R. G. Lawrence and Joseph Klouda. Interment followed the services in the Thorp Village Cemetery.

Deceased leaves to mourn his departure, his wife and three daughters, Mrs. S. F. Christianson of Eau Claire, Mrs. Walter Hansen of Eau Claire and Miss Tina Banderob at home, and four grandchildren. One son, Alfred, aged 15, died on June 30, 1900.
