Nicks, Elenora (11 APR 1911 - 17 MAY 1960)


Friends and relatives of the Walter Nicks family of Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.) were shocked when they learned that she had taken her own life late Tuesday afternoon.  Authorities and members of the family attributed her action to a failing health condition.  For several weeks this past winter she had been hospitalized for medical treatment.


Her husband had last seen her about 2:30 p.m. working in the yard, and then about an hour later found her body in the barn where she had hanged herself.


Funeral services have been set for 2:00 o’clock Friday afternoon from the evangelical Lutheran Church at Curtiss. Burial will be made at Pine Hill Cemetery, and six nephews will served as pallbearers.


The deceased was born April 11, 1911 in the Town of Hoard, the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Burtard Sr.


Mourning her sad death are her husband, Walter, two sons, Walter Jr. of rural Dorchester, and Rodger at home; three brothers, John Burtard, route 1, Owen, Rueben Burtard, Gilman, and Gilbert Burtard, Curtiss, and two grandsons.  One sister, Mrs. Albert (Angeline) Smith, preceded her in death.
