Quell, Andrew H. (5 Sep 1872 - 4 Feb 1928)


Mr. Andrew H. Quell died at his farm home in the town of Reseburg, Clark County, Wis. Saturday morning at 3 a.m., of heart disease, which has been bothering him for some time. Mr. Quell was born Sept. 5, 1872 at Burlington, Iowa. It was there he spent all his life, save the six years in Thorp.


Mr. Quell leaves to mourn his loss, his devoted wife and five children and one grandchild. Three of the children lived at home, Harry, Emily and Roy. Grace, or Mrs. Dukowen, and her husband, Martin, of Baraboo, came with the baby tot he funeral. Harley came from Port Washington.


It was always Mr. Quell's saying, "If I have any flowers coming, I want them while I am alive, not when I am dead." Mrs. Quell had many plants about the home and Mr. Quell so enjoyed them.

Mr. Quell was taken to his old home where he had longed to be. There he wished to take his final rest.


Mr. Quell was liked by all, and often helped his neighbors in threshing and filling silos.


The funeral was from the home. Mr. Bennetts gave the sermon. The text was "Behold, I Come Quickly." The members Methodist choir sang Mr. Quell's favorite songs, "Nearer My God to Thee," and Beautiful Isle of Somewhere." Mrs. B. R. Rusch sang "Face to Face."


Mrs. Quell and Harry accompanied the body to Burlington, Iowa for burial Monday morning.


Mr. Quell leaves a host of friends and will be missed by all.
