Dies Suddenly at Waldo

Coming as a bolt from a clear sky, the death of Mrs. James Keyes of Waldo, which occurred suddenly at her home last Monday morning has cast a gloom over the residents of that vicinity which will not soon be dispelled. Her sudden demise the news of which spread in a remarkably short time over the county was due to heart failure and was totally unexpected. Mrs. Keyes had arisen at the customary hour and had gone about the performance of her usual household duties. Little any one thought that the Angel of Death lingered so near and when he beckoned her away so swiftly and silent, the poignant pain of her parting struck deep into the hearts of everyone.

Mrs. Keyes was indeed beloved by all who knew her and her loss is keenly felt by many. She was a true friend, and her devotion to those she loved, added brightness to their lives. Nothing but the thought of the loving hand that has removed her reconcile her family to her absence. While she has gone from the scenes, the conflicts and the sorrows of life, she will live forever more in the hearts of those who knew her best. Though she never flaunted her best qualities in the public gaze, yet in seeing her they could not help but know that she was a woman, commanding not only the respect of admiration and love of her family and friends, but commanding it of all who met her and retaining it forever. "God touched her with His finger and she slept" the poet wrote. So we may say of her life - "God touched her with His finger and she slept," but not until the beautiful life was lived, a noble example of patience, fidelity to truth and faith were given.

Mrs. Keyes, whose maiden name was Bridget Eden McNicholas, was born in the town of Mitchell on April 21st, 1866. She resided there until her marriage to James Keyes which took place in Oct. 1885, after which the couple took up their residence in the town of Lyndon {Sheboygan county} where they have since resided. Besides her husband she is survived by five children, Mrs. Edwin Kuestner of Waunakee; Rov of Richmond, Wis.; Robert of West Allis; Orton and Henry of Waldo; three brothers, Patrick McNicholas, Plymouth; Frank McNicholas, Reedsville and James McNicholas, two sisters, Mrs. John Brogan of Mitchell and Mrs. Sullivan of Milwaukee.

The funeral services were held Thursday morning at St. Mary's church in Cascade. Rev. Hoog conducted the services, after which the body was borne to its last resting place amid a bower of flowers in the church cemetery. The pall was borne by the nephews of the deceased, Francis McNicholas, Dr. Brogan, Wm. Brogan, J. Brogan, Robert Godfrey and Joseph Keyes. The floral offerings were bounteous and beautiful, evidencing the esteem and respect in which the deceased was held. Among those from away who attended the last sad rites were Mrs. O'Neill and Mrs. Sullivan of Milwaukee; Dr. Brogan, J. Brogan and Robert Keyes of West Allis; Francis McNicholas, Iron Mountain, Mich.; Frank McNicholas, Reedsville; Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Kuestner of Waunakee; Mr. and Mrs. P.H.

Dies of Severe Burns

With feeling of deep regret we chronicle the death of Mrs. George Kolb, who was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P.H. Murphy of the town of Mitchell. Lydia Murphy was born in the town of Mitchell, Feb. 16, 1880. She was much loved and respected by all her friends and acquaintances, on account of her sunny disposition and kind heart. Her death was unusually sad and came as a severe shock to her many relatives and friends.

While attending to her household duties at her home in Chicago last Tuesday her clothing caught fire from a gas stove and before she realized what had occurred, was enveloped in flames. She was alone at the time, and was very severely burned when help arrived. They immediately removed her to a hospital where everything possible was done to relieve her suffering, but it was impossible to save her life and she passed away Friday night, surrounded by members of her family and fortified by the sacraments of the church.

Her remains were brought to Milwaukee the next day and taken to the home of her sister, Mr. H. Denesues. The funeral was held from St. Thomas's Church Monday and burial was in Holy Cross Cemetery. The pall bearers were six cousins Thomas Rooney, George Lindsay, Thomas Dwyre, John, Jerry and Mike Crosby. She leaves to mourn her untimely death her parents, five brothers, W. J. Murphy, Henry and Maurice of Milwaukee, Raymond of Savannah, Ill., and George of Mitchell {Sheboygan county}, three sisters, Mrs. F. Ebelt of Dundee, Ia., Mrs. H. Denesues of Milwaukee, Miss Kittie Murphy of Muirdale Hospital, Wauwatosa besides her husband and a little son, Jerome, aged eight years.

The sympathy of the community is extended to the sorrowing family in their bereavement.

We cannot portray the kindness of heart, and sterling worth of her who was so suddenly taken from our midst, but can only say the world is better for her having lived in it. May she rest in peace.

The home of Dr. John P. Koehler in Milwaukee was made extremely sad on Thanksgiving Day, when at eleven o'clock in the forenoon, the unrelentless hand of death was pressed upon Mrs. Koehler and her spirit was beckoned to the eternal home. The message came to Plymouth {Sheboygan county} and as the new was imparted to the homes of many good friends of the decedent, it brought deep sorrow everywhere.

Mrs. Harriet Haase Koehler was born in Plymouth {Sheboygan county}on Aug. 16, 1883 and spent her days here until her marriage to Dr. Koehler, which took place in 1910. She was the daughter and only child of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Haase, her father having passed away a few years ago. Mrs. Koehler was a favorite with all from her childhood, being exceptionally gifted as a vocalist and also talented on the piano and violin. The decedent began the study of music before arriving in her teens and from the first gave evidence that she was more than ordinarily gifted. Attending the public schools in this city and later the High School, from which she graduated with the class of 1900, she followed her study of music more extensively, her voice having materialized beautifully both in tone and in volume under the tutorship of Miss Louise Conover, with the result that she was much in demand at social gatherings, entertainments, etc.

Mrs. Koehler was possessed of a charming soprano voice, tis true, but not more so than she was charming otherwise. She also possessed an ideal disposition, which kindled a feeling of joyousness wherever she was wont to go. This, coupled with her attractive manner and kind smile won for her friends in abundance everywhere and the friendships were of a kind that made her tremendously popular.

Miss Harriet Haase was wedded to Dr. J.P. Koehler in Milwaukee on Jan. 15, 1910. At that time he was an athletic instructor at Marquette College, but later followed the practice of medicine in that city, besides which at the present time, he is an assistant to Dr. Ruhland of the Milwaukee health department. {Article cut in two here.}

John Kraus Takes His Life

Despondent He Hung Himself in the Woodshed in Rear of Home on Erie Avenue at an Early Hour This Morning. Wife Only Recently Brought Home from Hospital. She Was Severely Burned Last December.

Brooding over the misfortune that had befallen his wife, who was severely burned last winter and himself ill, John Kraus went out into the woodshed in the rear of the residence at 4 o'clock this morning and two hours later his lifeless body was found by Mrs. Anna Mertz.

He had hung himself just in front of the entrance way, using a wash line which he had thrown over a rafter. Running back to the house Mrs. Mertz notified the wife, who was ill in bed, and had only been home from the hospital a few days, and then hastened out to summon some neighbors. Dr. Knauf the coroner was immediately summoned and after viewing the body it was removed to the house and an undertaker was sent for.

Kraus was employed out at the Kohler plant until about a week ago when he complained of not feeling well and during the past week had not been to work. When his wife was brought home from the hospital a few days ago Mrs. Mertz was employed to care for her, as she is still under the physician's care and will never be a well woman again.

On December 23rd last while pouring kerosene oil in a cook stove she was severely burned about her head and body. Much of her clothing was burned from her body and she suffered severe burns about her chest and head.

Mr. Kraus was born in Russia, 38 years ago and had been in this country about three years, and the greater portion of that time had been employed at the Kohler plant. Besides his wife he is survived by two brothers and three sisters.

Pathetic

The scene is a sad one in the home, for the wife is in delicate health, and it is understood that she has very little if anything to live on. Here is an opportunity for the people of Sheboygan to lend assistance, and assist right now.

The funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Ballhorn undertaking establishment.

Youth Drowns Off Pier

Two Companions Saved


Timely Arrival of Gasoline Launch John P. Reiss, Jr. Saves Joseph Zoiz and Frank Bregar - - Body Recovered

Otto Kupsick, an employee of the C. Reiss Coal Co., was drowned 300 feet off the south pier at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, while two companions who were with him in a boat, had narrow escapes, being rescued by a gasoline launch and crew of the steamer John P. Reiss.

Yesterday afternoon Otto Kupsick, Joseph Zoiz and Frank Bregar borrowed a boat and went out in the lake, and several who passed them remarked about the reckless manner in which they were acting. Not content with rocking the boat they were changing about in the craft. When some three hundred feet south of the pier Kupsick stood up in the boat and then pitched overboard. It was supposed that in this position he lost his balance. As he plunged into the lake, the other occupants were thrown out and the three were fighting for life. Zoiz and Bregar were able to keep themselves afloat by holding to the craft, but Kupsick who could not swim, failed to reach the craft and shortly afterwards went down. Lookout Barney Brown witnessed the accident and the surf boat was rushed to the point, but in the meantime the gasoline launch John P. Reiss, Jr. had reached the scene and rescued the two, Zoiz and Bregar, the latter being about ready to give up when he was pulled from the lake.

The work of recovering the body of Kupsick was then undertaken by Captain Dionne and his men and two hours later it was brought to the surface and taken to the undertaking parlors of Jacob Gerend where it is being prepared for burial.

Rescues Timely

William Leng, chief engineer and Fred Grimmett, firemen on the steamer John P. Reiss came to the rescue of Zoiz and Bregar, and their arrival was none too soon, for Bregar was about to give up, and when taken out of the water was unconscious. He soon rallied and both were questioned as to the name of the drowned man but could give no information.

Otto Kupsick resided at 1732 South Seventh street, at the home of Martin Gruenke, and was employed at the C. Reiss Coal docks. He was 27 years of age and unmarried. The testimony of the two survivors will be taken as to the events that transpired just previous to the death of Kupsick. It is believed that Kupsick while standing up lost his balance and fell in and his companions in an effort to save him, lost their heads and pitched from the craft.

At the point where the body was recovered the water is 30 feet in depth. The funeral will be held Saturday morning with interment in the south side Catholic cemetery.

Sad Death of A Bright Young Girl

Death once more snatched from this earth a young girl whose short life gave promise of a splendid future, and whose character foretold nothing but the best type of future citizen.

That and more was Miss Delila Koffernus, the 14-years-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Koffernus, 1534 North Twelfth street, who died at the St. Nicholas hospital at 8:30 o'clock this morning of sarcoma of the arm after an illness of over four months, which only for the past four weeks confined her to the hospital.

Miss Koffernus was born in this city on Jan. 28, 1903, and lived here all her life. She attended the Trinity Lutheran school and was confirmed in the spring of 1916. In June of this year she graduated from the Eighth grade at the Horace Mann school, in spite of her illness and constant pains. She determined to attend school and graduate with her class, and for nearly three months she hardly missed a day, even though unable to use her left arm, swollen and evidently the seat of her trouble. Four days after her graduation she was operated on in the hospital, and with the combined attention of several local physicians slowly improved in strength. Last night she suffered a severe relapse, which ended in her death this morning.

Besides her parents one younger sister, aged 10, survive.

The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock from the house and at 2 o'clock from the Trinity Lutheran church, Rev. C. P. Schulz officiating. Interment will be made at the Wildwood cemetery.

Accident Fatal

One Man Killed And Antoher Dangerously Hurt Near Mt. Calvary.

Horse Jumps From Bridge

Jacob Krug is Dead and August Blanck May Die as Result of Injuries


Jacob Krug, a cheesemaker residing in the town of Forest, was killed and August Blanck, a farmer living at Mt. Calvary, was seriously injured early this morning when the horse they were driving jumped from the bridge across the Sheboygan river about two miles east of Mt. Calvary, and threw the men to the ice seven feet below.

It is supposed to have occurred about 3 or 3:30 o’clock this morning. The bodies were not found, however, until 8 o’clock and then they were discovered by Phillip Driver.

Mr. Driver had arrived near the bridge when he noticed a horse standing on the ice. He surmised that an accident had occurred and upon glancing toward the river saw the bodies of the two men. Mr. Driver immediately telephoned to Tony Enders and other people living at Mt. Calvary and when these gentlemen arrived a descent was made to the river.

Mr. Krug’s body was found lying in a peculiar doubled up position and was rigid when found. Mr. Blanck was partially unconscious and his body was covered with bruises. The back of his head was bleeding and it is feared that his brain has been injured.

It is regarded as an unusual occurrence that the horse escaped uninjured and that the cutter in which the two men had been riding was no badly damaged. The horse evidently knew something was wrong as he remained standing beside the bodies of the two men until the arrival of the rescuing party.

Mr. Krug’s body was removed to the home of his brother in Forest and Mrs. Blanck was taken to Carter hotel where Dr. J.W. Passé was called to attend him. It is feared that he will not recover as he was nearly frozen on account of remaining in the open for nearly five hours.

Efforts to ascertain how the accident really occurred were fruitless. Mr. Blanck was not permitted to talk at length, but from his statements it appears that while they were driving across the bridge the horse became frightened and reared high in the air, falling over the four foot railing and dragging the cutter and its occupants to the river below.

Last night Mr. Krug and Mrs. Blanck attended a telephone meeting at Calvary station. They left for home about 1 o’clock and according to farmers probably arrived at the scene of the accident about 3:30 or 3 o’clock in the morning.

Mr. Krug is about 40 years of age and has a wife and family. Mr. Blanck is 35 years old and also has a family.

District Attorney F.W. Chadbourne said that he had not learned all details concerning the accident, but that he had authorized the justice at Mt. Calvary to hold an inquest.

Dies Of Injuries

August Blanck Succumbs to Hurts Received in Bridge Accident at Mt. Calvary.


August Blanck, who was seriously injured last Tuesday in an accident near Mt. Calvary when a horse belonging to Jacob Krug jumped off the bridge across the Sheboygan river near Mt. Calvary, died at 1:45 o’clock this morning at the home of his father-in-law, August Coleman (sic: Kohlmann) at Mt. Calvary.

Since the accident a week ago Mr. Blanck has not been expected to live and Tuesday evening the members of his family were summoned to his bedside and were attending him when the end came. It is supposed that his death was due to an injury to his brain. When found last week Mr. Blanck’s body was a mass of bruises.

The deceased is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Blanck of Johnsburg (sic: Johnsonville, Sheboygan Co.), a wife and five children, the oldest being eight years and the youngest two months; one brother, William, and two sisters, of Sheboygan. The funeral will be held Saturday morning at 10 o’clock from the family residence in Mt. Calvary. Interment will be at the adjoining cemetery.

Jacob Krug Dead; Neck Is Broken

Falls From Cutter Which Capsizes on Bridge

Companion Is Badly Hurt

Bad Accident Happens in the Town of Forest at Early Hours This Morning.


Jacob Krug, a well known farmer residing in the town of Forest, his farm being 15 miles from this city, was instantly killed at 4 o’clock this morning on the road between Mt. Calvary and St. Cloud by being thrown off a bridge spanning the Sheboygan river, two miles from Mt. Calvary.

The cutter, in which Krug and August Plank (sic: Blanck) were riding, ran off the bridge, when the horse became frightened at some object on the side of the road. Krug suffered a complete fracture of the neck, while Plank was so badly injured that it is feared he cannot recover. The latter is in an unconscious condition and from marks on the side of his head it is suspected that his skull was fractured.

It was quite dark at the time of the accident. The men were on their way to St. Cloud. When they reached the bridge over the Sheboygan river, the horse took fright as it was about to step onto the bridge. It plunged to the side and the cutter overturning dropped off from the bridge.

Krug and Plank were wrapped up in robes and were unable to extricate themselves, and fell head first to the ice below. The river was frozen over and both men fell to what seemed instant death. When they were picked up it was apparent that Krug had been dead for some time. The neck was broken. Physicians were summoned from Fond du Lac.

The dead man is a well known resident of the town of Forest and has a number of relatives living in Fond du Lac. He leaves a wife and eight children, also two brothers Henry and George Krug of Forest.

William F. Keppel, 90, died peacefully at St. Nicholas Hospital on Saturday, March 5, 2005.

Born in Sheboygan on Feb. 4, 1915, he was a son of the late Frank and Rose (Varga) Keppel. He attended St. Peter Claver grade school and graduated from Sheboygan High School in 1933. While in high school, he won the state cross-country championship as both a junior and a senior.

On Aug. 24, 1940, he married Anne Cinealis at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Sheboygan.

For 41 years he worked at the Kohler Co., becoming a member of the Quarter Century Club. He was an avid reader, history buff and gardener, played baseball and golf in the Kohler Leagues and upon retirement continued bowling in a senior citizen league. He was a member of the Jolly Clavers in his parish and worked as a volunteer for the St. Vincent De Paul Society and the Sheboygan Food Pantry.

Perhaps his favorite pastime was rebuilding a 1926 Model T that he put together from parts collected from throughout Sheboygan County. He assembled the engine, reupholstered the interior and painted the car himself. His wife Anne describes the launch of the car as "quite a day with the whole neighborhood coming out to admire Pop and his old struggle buggy" which she nicknamed, "Jezebel." During the summer months, he would often give tours of the south side to his grandchildren in his restored car.

In a letter to a future daughter-in-law, his wife Anne described William as "quiet, hard working with a good sense of humor, a good husband and a good father." She said, "the Keppel Klan keeps him hopping overtime fixing bikes, roller skates, giving haircuts, gardening and being a jack of all trades and a general fix-it man not to mention his taxi service for the family." His family was the center of his life.

William was proud of the accomplishments of his seven children, 20 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren who survive him. They include William J. (Polly) Keppel of Minneapolis, Minn., Jean (Michael) Baldikoski of Elmhurst, Ill., James Keppel (Kathy Kind) of Grafton, Robert (Mary Beth) Keppel of Chesterfield, Mo., Mary Beth Keppel (Michael Kepler) of Madison, Ruth Keppel-Aleks (William Aleks) of Rockford, Ill. and Susan (William) Bernhardt of River Falls.

He was preceded in death by his sister and brother-in-law Hermine (Minnie) and William Manske, and his sister-in-law, Lucille Dunn Keppel.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated for William on Tuesday, March 8, at noon at St. Peter Claver Catholic Church.

Visitation for the family and friends will be at the church, 1444 S. 11th St., from 10 a.m. until the time of Mass at noon. Burial will be at Immaculate Conception Cemetery following the Mass.

Donations to the St. Vincent De Paul Society in William's name would be appreciated.

In the Loss of Your Father

What you will always remember
Is the way he laughed,
The stories he told,
The guidance he gave.
What you will always know
Is the friendship he shared,
The sacrifices he made,
The example he was.
What you will always feel
Is his love.
