Chubb, Clarence W. (25 June 1854 - 13 Dec. 1933)
C. W. Chubb, for many years a prominent citizen of the town of Lynn, passed away at the home of his son, Arthur, in that town on Wednesday, Dec. 13.
His health had been poor for several years, as he suffered from heart trouble. This culminated in dropsy which led to his death.
Clarence W. Chubb was born June 25, 1854, at Lamartine, Wis. When a small boy his family moved to Summit Center, where he grew up. He graduated from high school and became a cheese maker, following this work for several years. Nov. 2, 1878, he was married in Fond du Lac County to Miss Mary Belle Holmes. Soon after their marriage they moved to Clark County and settled on land in the town of Lynn, where they developed a good farm home. About twelve years ago he and his wife retired from the farm and made their home in the village of Granton, until about a year ago; his failing health compelled them to move to the home of their son, Clarence, and later to Arthur’s home, where he died.
Mr. Chubb was a man of keen intelligence, well educated and a close student of public affairs. He was Justice of the Peace for many years, and as such officiated at many weddings. He was locally popular and was much consulted in community affairs, during the years that his health permitted.
Mr. Chubb is survived by his wife and two sons mentioned, and three grandchildren. One son, when two and one-half years old was killed by accident about fifty years ago.
The funeral services for Mr. Chubb was held at the home Saturday morning, Rev. Austin of Lindsey officiating. Musical numbers were sung by Mrs. Ed Ott, Miss Emma Altenberg, Miss Florence Altenberg and Mrs. Emma Helm.
The pallbearers were Fred Lichte, Louis Elmhorst, C. D. Reisner, Elmer Gotter, Clark Brooks and Chas. Neinas. After the services the body was taken to Summit Cemetery near Oconomowoc for burial in the family lot, brief services being held at the grave.
