CHILI - Funeral services will be held in Christ Lutheran Church here Sunday for Oscar Louis Franke, 92, who died of old age complications Thursday in Memorial Hospital at Neillsville. Burial will be made in Yolo cemetery.

Mr. Schreiber (appears to be a newspaper error) was born at Centerville, Wis., Feb. 10, 1867 and was married May 20, 1890 to Anne Gother, who preceded him in death in 1941. The couple lived in Chilton until 1902 and then came to Clark County's town of Lynn, where they farmed until 1923 before moving to this community.

After the death of his wife, Mr. Franke lived with his children until 1957, when he became a patient at the Neillsville Nursing Home.

He is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Otto (Clara) Gaulke, Chili; Mrs. Edward (Ida) Kleinschmidt, Chili, and Mrs. Ernest (Emma) Sanger, Loyal; a brother John Franke, Unity; 21 grandchildren; 54 great grandchildren.
