Hill, Carl W. (20 JUN 1909 - 9 APR 1959)
Carl Walter Hill, 49 years and 10 months of age, succumbed to a lingering illness of three months, which even had the best medical authorities at Rochester, Minn., in doubt as to what affliction he suddenly became accessible to, resulting in his fatal illness.
A large, husky, clean living and active man, he gradually began to degenerate during his three-month illness and passed away Thursday, April 9, 1959, at St. Mary’s Hospital, Rochester, where he had been hospitalized for several weeks.
Funeral services were held Monday from the Hoeper and Kraut Funeral Home with the Rev. J.R. Stone officiating, and the Rev. Overland of Eau Claire assisting. Burial was made at Riverside Cemetery.
Mrs. Eva Buss, Mrs. Vivian Bombach, Mrs. George Wnukowski, Mrs. Winnie Venet and Mrs. Pearl Arola were in charge of the floral offerings. Serving as pallbearers were Dale Bush, Darrel Bush, Wesley Siggelkow, William Potter, Vaitto Mutka and Ed Lentz.
Up until his illness he had served as outside foreman and lumber grader at the Frederick Post Mfg. Corporation’s plant and for two years had served as street and water commissioner of the village of Withee, in addition to having served as a conservation warden.
He was born June 20, 1909, in Michigan, and had spent the greater part of his life in this community.
Mourning his untimely passing are his wife, the former Lennia Luoma, two daughters, Barbara, 17, and Nancy, 10, and one son, Douglas, 2, one sister, Mrs. Senia Craig of Oregon; three brothers, Bernhardt and Rueben Hill, Owen, and Everett of Pine City, Minn.
