Cone, William #3 (15 AUG 1875 - 2 MAY 1944)

Tuesday morning, May 2, after several months illness, William Cone, 68, passed away at his home in Greenwood.

The son of William and Frances Cone, Mr. Cone was born in Winona, Minn., on Aug. 15, 1875. His early life was spent in Iowa and Minnesota. In 1896 he came to Clark county, where he has since made his home. After living in various parts of the county, he and his wife settled in Greenwood in 1924. He was a mason, paperhanger and painter by trade. He followed his trade until two years ago.

He was united in marriage on Sept. 4, 1907, to Miss Edna Sitts of Loyal. To this union was born one daughter, Mrs. Oscar (Gladys) Neeb.

Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Myron E. Taylor at the Nichols funeral home in Loyal on May 4. Hymns were sung by Mrs. Ray Prior and Mrs. Calvin Prior, with Mrs. A. D. Wicklund at the organ.

Pallbearers were Bert Young, Frank Duell, George Cleveland, and Vern Millard, all of Loyal, Sylvester Plank of Greenwood and Lige Niman of Spencer.

Flowers were carried by Mrs. Sylvester Plank, Mrs. Charles Neuenfeldt and Mrs. Frank Duell.

He was laid to rest in the Pine Grove cemetery.

He is survived by his wife, his daughter, Gladys, three grandchildren and one half brother, Fred Bundy, of Eau Claire.

Those from out of town who attended the funeral were: Mrs., Anna Huber and Mr. and Mrs. Roy Vogel and daughter, Elsie, of Wisconsin Rapids, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Vogel of the town of Beaver and Fred Bundy of Eau Claire.

Mr. Cone was well known in both Loyal and Greenwood and will be sadly missed by his many friends. He was a loving husband and father, and faithful friend and neighbor.

The Tribune adds its sympathy to that of friends and neighbors to the bereaved relatives.
