Shuckhart, Mark (12 Mar. 1876 - 17 Mar. 1947)

Mark Shuckhart passed away at 11:20 p.m. Monday evening, March 17, at the home of his brother, Isaac Shuckhart in Beloit, Wisconsin, as the result of a sudden heart attack, though he suffered from a heart ailment for the past three years. He and his wife and daughter had been visiting in the brother’s home for several weeks, going there from Unity.

Mr. Shuckhart was born March 17, 1876 in West Lima, Richland County, Wisconsin. He was married to Leslie Snowberg of Unity, November 8, 1938 at Phillips.

Surviving relatives are the widow and daughter, Edythe Anne and brother previously mentioned, also three sons, LaVere and Ross of Sumner, Washington, Harold of Edgemont, S. Dakota and a daughter, Mrs. Mabel Arnott of Tomahawk, of a former marriage. Two sisters, Mrs. Mary Todd of Alma Center, and Mrs. Etta Schekels of Algoma, a brother, Will, of Graceville, Minnesota; twenty-two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. One daughter, Lavaina preceded him in death.

Funeral services were held at the Nick’s Funeral Home in Tomahawk Friday afternoon at 4:15 with the Rev. Cliff of the Methodist Church officiating. Two Hymns, "Face to Face," and "Ivory Palaces" were sung by the tenor soloist of the church. Though the services were delayed in hopes that two sons who were driving from Sumner, Washington would arrive in time, it was pathetically sad to have them arrive fifteen minutes after the final service at the cemetery.

Among the relatives who attended the funeral Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Langjahr, Unity; Mr. and Mrs. Albert Seefeldt, Spencer; Mr. and Mrs. Art Schmidt, Colby; and John Olson, of Unity.

Sleep on - Dear Mark, And take thy rest, You became weary, But God’s way is best. Sleep on - rest on, The hour grows late, But we’ll meet again, At God’s eastern gate.
