Our community was shocked and saddened to hear of the death of a friend and neighbor of many years’ residence here in Withee, Thursday morning. Mrs. Henry Klauck had been in poor health for several months, but was able to be up and around until Saturday evening, March 25, when she suffered a stroke. She died the following Thursday.

Theresa Plecity was born in Kladna, Bohemia, on April 6, 1879, and was at the time of her death, sixty-four years, eleven months and twenty six days old. She came to America when nine years of age, with her parents, brothers and sisters. They settled on a small farm north of Thorp, at what is now known as Mileaway. She attended the public school at Thorp and grew to young womanhood there. In 1902, she married Henry Klauck. After a short stay at Maplehurst, Taylor County, they took up their residence in Withee, and have made their home there ever since.

To this union were born two children, Verona, who teaches at Onalaska, and Kenneth of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Both children and her husband are left to mourn the loss of a devoted mother and wife. The community loses a kind and loyal friend who will be greatly missed by all who have known her and loved her.

Mrs. Klauck has been preceded in death by three sisters and two brothers. One brother, Frank Plecity of Stanley survives. Besides there is one grandchild and a number of nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were held from the Griebenow Funeral Home (Owen, Wisconsin) at Owen to the Sacred Heart church, Withee. Rev. Father Victor Plecity, a nephew of Blessed Sacrament church, La Crosse, read the Requiem Mass, assisted by Rev. Father Francis Brockman. Interment was made at the Riverside cemetery.
