Funeral rites for Mrs. William Beisner, 73, pioneer resident of the town of Mayville, who passed away last Friday morning, were held on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. from the home and 2:00 p.m. from St. Peter's church, the Rev. J.J. Brandt officiating.

Mrs. Beisner, who had been in ill health for the past two years because of cancer, was the last surviving charter member of St. Peter's church and had been a useful and active member of the community for years. She was born in Hanover, Germany, on June 28, 1867 and came directly to the town of Mayville from there in 1880. On Nov. 11, 1883 she was married to William C.
