Hendriks, Theodore (14 MAY 1874 - 11 MAY 1940)

Last rites were conducted for Theodore Hendriks, Town of Worden (Clark Co., Wis.) farmer, on Tuesday, May 14th, 1940, by Father A.M. Muckerheide, at St. Bernard’s Catholic Church here. Mr. Hendrik’s 66th birthday. His death was caused from pneumonia which set in as the result of a crushed chest received in an auto accident at Ripon, Wis., May 6th. He died Saturday morning.
