LAMPMAN, Marie Anna


It was with deep regret that our citizens learned of the death of Mrs. Ray Lampman, well known woman of this city, which occurred early last Saturday morning.  Few if any of her friends or relatives were aware that she was in rather serious condition of health, her sudden death following an attack of apoplexy coming as a shock to all.

Marie Anna Brehler was born at Bayfield, Wis., on August 9, 1895, and was therefore 43 years, 10 months and 8 days of age at time of passing.  She spent her early girlhood at Bayfield, and in the fall of 1907, when 12 years of age, she moved with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dan Stahl, to this city, where she spent the remainder of her life. She gained many friends in the community during the many years of her residence here.

On December 2, 1912, she was united in marriage with Raymond M. Lampman.  To this union two children were born, one daughter, Marcella Mae, preceding her mother in death.

Surviving are the husband and one son Lawrence, also one grandson, Garold, all of this city; her parents and the following brothers and sisters; George of Williston, N. D.; Daniel of Madison; John and Edward, of Spooner; Mrs. H. P. Norwick, of Milwaukee; Mrs. Clarence Falk, of Spooner, and Mrs. L. A. Sebastian and Dorothy, of St. Paul; besides four nephews and six nieces.

Funeral services were held from St. Francis de Sales Catholic church Tuesday morning, Rev. Fr. P. A. Walsh officiating, and interment was made in Calvary cemetery.

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hiner were called to Chetek this week by the death of Mrs. Langdon, mother of Mrs. Hiner, who died while down there for a visit with friends.  They returned Wednesday.  The death of Mrs. Langdon was unexpected and a shock.  She was a woman possessed of many good qualities and few faults.  Although she has gone only a few days in advance of the most robust and healthy of us and we are all sure to follow, we know not how soon, her kindly face will be missed by her life companions, relatives, friends and acquaintances; she will be kindly and fondly remembered.
