Brunner, Charles (1885 - 31 OCT 1929)

Charles Brunner, age 44, known by many in this vicinity as the former Marshfield-Park Falls bus driver, died suddenly last Thursday at his home in Abbotsford, Wis., heart trouble being the cause of his departure to the distant shore. On Thursday evening, while eating his supper, he was stricken with a heart attack and died before a physician arrived, who was called immediately. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Lutheran Church at Abbotsford, and interment made in the Abbotsford Cemetery.

Mr. Brunner lived in the town of Posen, Marathon Co., north of Abbotsford, for a number of years following his marriage to Miss Jacobi of that community. Later he moved to Abbotsford, where he and his family have since resided. During the past summer, he had been employed as a tractor driver by a road construction company near Madison and arrived home Sunday, Oct. 27, on account of the bad weather conditions, which interfered with his work. For several years he conducted the Marshfield-Park Falls bus, driving from Abbotsford to Marshfield early in the morning, from there to Park Falls, then back to Marshfield, and from there to his home again in Abbotsford. This trip was made during all kinds of bad weather and many times when other car drivers were afraid of being stalled.

He is survived by his wife and two sons, Raymond and Lyle, all at home.
