Thede, Alex (13 Mar. 1888 - 13 Aug. 1956)

Alex Thede of Abbotsford, formerly of this community, died at 8:45 Monday night at the Marshfield, Wisconsin Hospital at the age of 68 years, a cerebral hemorrhage being the cause of his death.

Mr. Thede was born on March 13, 1888, in New Holstein, where he resided until 1912, when he moved to the town of Colby and engaged in farming. Eight years ago, he retired and moved to Abbotsford, Wis. He was united in marriage to Adelia Schmidt at New Holstein on September 5, 1911.

Surviving are his widow; one daughter, Mrs. Hal (Adeline) Harding, of Marshfield; a grand daughter, Janice Harding, of Marshfield; one sister, Mrs. Paul (Luella) Langenegger, of Alma. His parents, three sisters and three brothers preceded him in death.

Mr. Thede was well known here as a good Christian with industrious habits, and, being of a friendly and kindly disposition, was well-liked by all who knew him.
