Funeral services for a Clark County native, Mrs. Alvina Anna Gault, 73, of Neillsville, were held Friday afternoon from the Georgas Funeral Home. The Rev. Gary Clark of the United Church of Christ officiated and burial was made in the Neillsville cemetery. Mrs. Gault, who had been in failing health for the last two years, died here October 25, just five days after the death of her brother, Albert Schoengarth.

After her husband’s death in 1946, she moved to Neillsville, where she worked in restaurants and cooked for the Kiwanis club for many years. She also worked at Barr’s mink ranch. Mrs. Gault was a member of the Royal Neighbors of America.
