Meihack, George Frederick (6 October 1889 - 25 December 1970)

Two Neillsville brothers, born seventeen months apart, died within twelve hours of one another on Christmas Day and were buried in joint services from St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church on Monday, December 28, at 1:30 p.m. Both Frank August Meihack, 82, and George Frederick Meihack, 81, sons of Edward and Caroline (Hoeftman) Meihack, were born and educated in the Town of Weston and lied their entire lives in the Neillsville area.

George Frederick Meihack of Rt. 3, Neillsville, was born October 6, 1889. He was a veteran of World War I, serving overseas in France and receiving his discharge from military service in November of 1919. He did carpenter work most of his lifetime. Mr. Meihack was a member of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Neillsville. His marriage to the former Sarah Wetzel took place in Glendive, Mont., on September 12, 1923.

Besides his wife, George Meihack is survived by three children, Ruby Meihack and Ronald Meihack, both of Neillsville, and Prof. Marvin Meihack, New Ulm, Minn., and by seven grandchildren.

Soloist at the joint services was Mrs. Harold Mayer, who sang “Asleep in Jesus” and “The Lord is My Shepherd.” She was accompanied by Victor Lehmann. The Georgas Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements.
