Chase, Frank (28 OCT 1863 - JUN 1926)

Frank Chase, whose death was chronicled in this paper last week, was buried Friday morning, funeral services were held at the Catholic Church, Rev. Lachnit officiating, and interment made in the Colby Catholic Cemetery.

The deceased was born Oct. 28, 1863, at Dale, Wis., where he lived until twenty-seven years ago, when he came to Colby, Wis. For five years, he bought cattle, after which he moved on a farm, one and one-half miles west of Colby. His wife preceded him to the distant shore, passing away fourteen years ago.

The children left to mourn his departure are Francis Chase of Colby, Orville Chase of Colby, and Leslie Chase of Riplinger, who were all at his bedside at the time of his death.

Those from out of town here for the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Phillippi of Marshfield, Peter Phillippi of Dale, Lew Wilson and Lester Wilson of Appleton.

The deceased was well known to people of Colby and vicinity, who will remember his mild temperament, yet remarkable for an uncompromising firmness. He was a good citizen and neighbor and well liked by all who knew him.
