Justman, Charles A. (1884? - 2 Jan. 1945)

Charles Justman, aged 57 years, who resided in Marshfield for the past two years, died of a heart attack shortly after noon on Monday as he was attempting to start his automobile. He was found by his son-in-law, Lt. Lewis Ruch, U.S.N., a few minutes after he had gone to the garage to get the car. The motor was running, giving rise to the theory that he might have been asphyxiated, and the fire department was called. Firemen applied an inhalator but there was no response and a physician, who was also called immediately, said that death was the result of a heart attack.

Charles Justman, a retired farmer of this community, who had made his home in Marshfield for the past two years, is survived by his wife and two daughters, Mrs. Lewis Ruch of Marshfield and Mrs. H. Beversdorf of Birnamwood, three brothers, Walter and Louis of Spencer and Norville of Edgar; six sisters, Mrs. E. V. Larsen of Owatonna, Minn.; Mrs. Maynard Yahr of Unity; Mrs. Wm. Schwantes of Colby; Mrs. Herbert Lambert of Edgar; Mrs. E. W. Marten and Mrs. H. F. Hermanson of Spencer.

Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the Lutheran church in Marshfield with Rev. Krueger in charge. Internment will be made in Hillside cemetery.
