Mrs. Louisa Westphal died on Dec. 28th at her home on the north side, aged 86 years, 5 months and 27 days. She was born Louisa Helmut in Germany and was married to Christian Westphal about 60 years ago. Three children were born to them. Fifty years ago the Westphal family came to the United States and settled in the state of New York. They lived there for a number of years and then came to Clark County, taking up their residence in Neillsville. Mr. Westphal died about 30 years ago. Mrs. Westphal was a kindly lady and endured all the vicissitudes of the early life in this country. She was a woman of charitable inclinations and integrity and has many friends in this vicinity. She is survived by one son, John Westphal. The funeral was held on Monday afternoon, services being conducted at the home of a grandson, Claude Westphal, and interment being made in the Neillsville Cemetery.
