Funeral services were held at St. Peter and Paul’s Catholic Church at Gilman at ten o’clock Saturday morning, April 28, for Stanley Persak, 68, a retired Gilman farmer who died suddenly at his home on Wednesday, April 25, 1962. Father John Dzurko officiated at the solemn requiem mass.

He retired from the farm in 1958 and moved back to Gilman to make his home.

He was united in marriage at Gilman on Oct. 24, 1916 to Anna Filipowicz. Besides his wife, he is survived by one son, Raymond at home, two daughters, Agnes, Mrs. F. Wetzel of Milwaukee and Margaret, Mrs. Stanley Harycki of Thorp; three brothers, Leon Persak of West Allis, Wis., Thomas Persak of Orland Park, Ill., and Frank Persak of Chicago, and one sister, Mrs. Julia Slupski of Thorp. Three brothers, Charles, Walter and Tony preceded him in death.
