Gust J. Hintz, a pioneer of this community, died at St. Joseph’s hospital, Marshfield, Sunday, March 4, of a kidney ailment and complications of age. Mr. Hintz had been making his home at the Havenet Nursing home at Owen after the death of his wife in January. 

The Rev. Richard Harrison, of the Presbyterian church, conducted services at 2:00 o’clock, Wednesday afternoon, at the Zink Funeral Home where the body had been lying in state. Burial was made in the Abbotsford cemetery. Pallbearers were Frank Bernitt, Walter Lueth, Fred Ridderbusch, Harold Christensen, Chet Knight and Roland Gasch.

Later he worked at Floodwood, Mich., and then at Sublette, Ill. In 1898, he bought a steam threshing rig and later added a saw mill which he operated in Manitowoc county. In 1923, he moved the machinery to Abbotsford and added a planing mill.
