Zipfel, Louis E. (5 AUG 1865 - 13 MAR 1928)
Louis Zipfel passed away Tuesday morning, March 13, 1928, after an illness of about a week, from pleurisy and heart trouble.
Louis Ernest Zipfel was born in Germany Aug. 5, 1865. He came to this country when two year old with his parents. The family lived in Washington Co., Wis., for a few years, moving to Clark County, Wis. when he was still a small boy. They settled on a farm in the town of Grant, where he grew to manhood. In 1892 he was married to Miss Ann Martin, who survives him. They settled on the old home farm in Grant and lived there until two years ago last November, when they rented the farm to their son and moved to Neillsville.
Mr. Zipfel was a most excellent man and citizen, quiet in his manner, honest and industrious and aiming to do right in all things.
He leaves to mourn his death his wife, one son Fred, on the home farm, and one daughter, Elsie, Mrs. Adolph Myer at home. He leaves also a sister, Mrs. Bertha Frachette of Sherwood.
The funeral will be held at St. John's Lutheran Church, Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. H. Brandt officiating.
