Hazeltine, Wealthy #2 (12 FEB 1868 - 28 DEC 1943)

Miss Wealthy Hazeltine, 75, died suddenly of a heart attack at her home in the town of Sherman Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 28. She had suffered with a heart ailment for several years.

She was born in the town of Lowell, Dodge county, on Feb. 12, 1868. In 1880, at the age of 12 years, she came with her parents, George Hazeltine and Hattie Reed Hazeltine, to the town of Sherman and settled on a farm there. Although the site of the home in which she resided at the time of her death was not that of the first home of the family, it is part of the original Hazeltine farm. Following the death of their parents, she continued to live on the farm and made a home for her brother.

Her life has been such that it has won the respect of, not only those in the vicinity where 63 years of her life was spent, but all who had the privilege of knowing this quiet home loving woman. With her going this community has lost another of its few remaining pioneers.

Miss Hazeltine is survived by two brothers, Roy, at home, and A. J. (Bert) in Milwaukee, and two sisters, Mrs. Fred Haupt of Loyal and Mrs. Otto Catlin of Neillsville.

Funeral services were held at the home Friday afternoon at 2 o’clock. Burial was in the Loyal cemetery. The Rev. N. J. Dechant, pastor of the Zion Evangelical and Reformed church of Neillsville, officiated. The pallbearers were Lawrence Bowman, Stanley Stevens, Fred Bonas, Henry Lemke, Otto Lemke and Alvin Haslow. Mrs. Lawrence Bowman and Mrs. Henry Lemke had charge of the flowers.

Mrs., Ray Prior and Mrs. Calvin Prior sang, "Rock of Ages," and "Beautiful Garden of Prayer," and "the Old Rugged Cross," with Mrs. A. D. Wickland as accompanist.

Those from away who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Hazeltine of Milwaukee and Mr. and Mrs. Otto Catlin of Neillsville.

The Tribune adds its sympathy to that of friends and neighbors to the relatives in their bereavement.
