Rouse, Clarence E. (14 Dec. 1889 - 28
Clarence E. Rouse, 63, of Stevens Point,
was killed instantly in a two-car collision at the junction of
Highways 150 and 45, five miles west of Neenah, Tuesday.
Mr. and Mrs. Rouse, formerly of
Abbotsford, had attended the funeral of Walter Jackson, that
afternoon. Mrs. Rouse went to visit her sister at a hospital at
Fond du Lac and Mr. Rouse started the return trip to Stevens Point
with Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Walsh and their daughter, Mrs. Loretta
Peltier, of Wisconsin Rapids, the driver of the car.
Mrs. Peltier, traveling west on Highway
150, told authorities that she had stopped at the intersection and
did not see any vehicle approaching. Arthur Leadingham, of Polar,
driver of the other car, told authorities that he stepped on his
brakes but was unable to stop. His vehicle, traveling south on
Highway 45, reportedly skidded on the concrete, made slippery by
Mr. Leadingham and Mrs. Peltier did not
require hospitalization, but both Mr. and Mrs. Walsh were
hospitalized, but were not in critical condition. Mr. Rouse
apparently suffered a skull fracture.
The funeral will be held Friday morning
at 10 o’clock at St. Stephan’s Catholic church, Stevens
Point. The remains will be at the Boston Funeral Home until the
time for the services.
Mr. Rouse was born Dec. 14, 1889, and was
a barber by trade. He operated a shop in Abbotsford for a number of
years. On Nov. 18, 1913, he was married to Anna Adrian, of
Surviving him are his widow, one son, Robert, of Spokane, Wash.; three daughters, Mrs. Webster Durfee, of Mt. Pleasant, Mich.; Mrs. Fred Zwilling, of Columbus, Ohio; and Mrs. Wayne Peterson, of Stevens Point. There are 18 grand children; four sisters and two brothers.
