Leth, Jens (29 OCT 1855 - 15 DEC 1929)
Jens Leth, for more than thirty-six years a resident of the vicinity of Withee, Clark County, Wis., passed away at his home just north of the village Sunday, following a heart attack, a disease of which he had been a sufferer for a number of years.
Mr. Leth came to Withee thirty-six years ago, from Chicago, and settled on a farm north of the village. After residing there for a number of years, he sold his place and moved to Longwood, Clark County, where he again took up farming and remained until about seven years ago, when he moved to his place just north of the village limits.
He was seventy four years of age, and the last seven years he has spent in retirement, engaging himself with only the work about his home. He was one of the highly respected citizens of the community, and leaves to mourn his aged wife.
Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon, from the Danish Lutheran Church, of which he had been a member during his residence here. Rev. H. R. Petersen officiated, and interment took place in the Riverside Cemetery.
