MRS William Bandt Sr (sorry, no first name is mentioned in either article I'm taking information from)

West Fremont--Funeral Services were held this morning at 10 o'clock at the Immanuel Evangelical Church in Chili for Mrs. William Bandt Sr., 76, Chili, who died suddenly Sunday at St. Joseph's Hospital, Marshfield, where she had been receiving treatment for a gangrene infection in her foot. From Chili, the body was taken to Germania, where interment took place.

Mrs Bandt was born in Germania, Waushara County, Dec 24, 1862. She grew to womanhood in Germania and was married there to William Bandt, Nov. 20, 1881.

For three years after they were married, Mr. and Mrs. Bandt lived in Coloma and then moved back to Germania, where they lived 37 year. About 18 years ago, they came to Clark County with their sons, William Jr. and Harvey, and purchased a farm in the Town of Fremont, where William Jr. and family now reside. Since 1931, the Bandts had lived in Chili.

Mrs. Bandt was a member of the Immanuel Evangelical Church and was affiliated with the ladies Aid and Woman's Missionary Societies.

Surviving besides her aged husband are two sons, the Rev. Harvey Bandt, of Prairie Farm, and William Jr., Town of Fremont, and one daughter, Mrs. Arthur (Tonia) Happe Sr., Ripon.

Five brothers who live near Coloma and Germania and several grandchildren and two great-grandchildren also survive.
