Keuer, Leslie Leland (12 March 1904 - 1 December 1972)

A native of the Town of Lynn who retired to Neillsville nine years ago, Leslie Leland Keuer, 68, died here December 1. Services were held Monday afternoon from Zion American Lutheran Church in the Town of Grant with the Rev. Richard Eggen officiating. Burial was made in the church Cemetery. The Georgas Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
