Funeral services for Sylvester Pease, 89, were conducted Saturday afternoon from the Georgas funeral home. The Rev. Floyd A. Fahlgren officiated. Burial was made in the Neillsville Cemetery. He died Wednesday afternoon, February 6, at his home on South State Street.

Mr. Pease was born in Sheboygan Falls, November 10, 1857, to Sylvester and Murcy Pease, and received his early education in Plymouth. In 1873 he arrived in Neillsville after a three-day journey by rail from Plymouth to Hatfield and from Hatfield to Neillsville by stage. He immediately began homesteading on his father's farm in the Town of York. In 1891, he was married to Ida Baumann at Watertown. The couple made their home on his parents' farm until their death in 1896, when they purchased a farm of their own. In 1924, Mr. and Mrs. Pease moved to Neillsville.

Mr. Pease was treasurer of the Hawk Cheese factory for one year and a lifelong member of the Methodist Church.

Surviving are his widow, a son, Emil Pease, Janesville; a daughter, Mrs. Pearl Luebke, DeRidder, La; four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Four sisters and a son, Asa, preceded him in death. The pallbearers were Jesse, Ray, and George Mortimer, James Young, Horace Vandeberg and Edward Voight.
