      From THE LEIGH WORLD, January 14,1943-

      Wm. Grotelueschen passed away at his home, three miles west of Leigh, on Saturday evening following a brief illness with a cancer. He had reached the age of 55 years, five months, and 17 days.

      Funeral services were conducted on Tuesday by the Rev. E. C. Werner, pastor of Zion Lutheran church. A brief service was conducted at the farm home and then at Zion Lutheran church.

      At the services children of the parochial school, under the direction of their teacher, Laurence Dittmar, sang "Rock of Ages".

      Pall bearers were Werner and Clarence Johannes, Elmer, Walter, and LaVern Wurdeman, Herbert, Leonard, Rolland, and Gordon Wilke, Roy and Lavern Grotelueschen, and Eldon Loseke, proxy for Edwin Wurdeman.

      The honorary pall bearers were Clarence Olson, Otto Bruns, Ed Franzen, R. W. Korte, Otto D. Loseke, and Carl Mullenhoff, Sr. Interment was in the Leigh cemetery.

      Mr. Grotelueschen was born on a Platte county farm on July 22,1887, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Grotelueschen. He remained on the home farm until 1912 when he purchased the farm just south of Hill Siding, which has been his home until his death.

      He was united in marriage on February 13,1912 to Miss Frieda Wurdeman. To this union six children were born. Frieda Louise died in infancy; the three other daughters are Mrs. Victor Olson, Mrs. Arthur Ehlers, and Mrs. Elmer Went, all of whom reside in this community. The two sons are Melvin, who has been with the armed forces the past few months, and Leo, at home. Besides his wife and children, the deceased is mourned by five grandchildren and one brother, Charles Grotelueschen.

      An unusually large concourse of relatives and friends attended the funeral rites.
