Wetzel, Anna (25 November 1885 – 18 May 1977)

A longtime resident of the Town of Pine Valley, Mrs. Otto (Anna) Wetzel, 91, of Rt. 3 Neillsville, died Wednesday, May 18. She had been a resident of Memorial Home for the past 11 months because of failing health.

Funeral services were held Saturday at 1:30 p.m. from St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church with the Rev. Norman W. Lindloff officiating. Burial was in the Neillsville City Cemetery. The Georgas-Gesche Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

Anna Wetzel, daughter of Lawrence and Anna Aasn Kvittem, was born November 25, 1885, in Norway and received her education in schools there. She came to the United States at the age of 19. Her marriage to Otto Wetzel took place November 10, 1910, at Ft. Atkinson. The couple farmed in that area for three years before moving to Clark County where they farmed for most of her lifetime. Mrs. Wetzel was a member of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church and of its Ladies Aid Society. Surviving, in addition to her husband, are four daughters, Mrs. Evelyn Walk of Neillsville, Mrs. Mildred Bozman of Mattoon, Il., Mrs. Marion Holton of Arlington, Vt., and Mrs. Leonard (Ruth) Godwin of Big Bend; one half-brother, Alfred Kvittem of California; and 13 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Pallbearers were John Walk, Bernard Poeschel, Jim Bozman, Alfred Godwin, Ronnie Meihack and Raymond Wetzel.

Linda Krehmeyer sang “The 23rd Psalm” and “I’m But a Stranger Here.” The accompanist was Kathleen Beckmann.

Among those from out of town attending the services were Mrs. Marion Holton, Arlington, Vt.; Mrs. Mildred Bozman and son, Jim, Mattoon, Il.; Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Godwin and Mrs. Ron Morrison and children, Milwaukee; and Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Godwin, Waukesha. Other relatives and friends from New Auburn, Stanley, Greenwood, Madison and Fairchild attended as well.
