Whittlinger, Harvey #3 (1899? - 9 OCT 1954)
Funeral services for Harvey Whittlinger, 55, who ended his life Saturday morning by hanging, were held at Lulloff’s Funeral Home in Colby at 2 o’clock Tuesday afternoon. The Rev. William Grafe, pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Curtiss, officiated. Burial was made in the Green Grove Cemetery.
Members of the family told Clark County authorities that Whittlinger had been despondent since he sold his farm on Wept. 27, preparatory to moving to Abbotsford. His body was found in the barn. Clark County Sheriff Frank Dobes and Coroner John Bergemann, both of Neillsville, investigated the death. The coroner said there would be no inquest.
Whittlinger was born in the town of Beaver in Clark County and farmed all his life in the Curtiss area. He was married on Oct. 20, 1922 to Hilda Scheer at Green Grove Lutheran Church.
He is survived by his wife, two sons, Paul, Milwaukee, Vern, Abbotsford, four grandchildren, one brother, Charles, Amery, and seven sisters, Mrs. Milton Sangstad and Mrs. Meta Miller, Milwaukee, Mrs. Lena Bauer, State of Washington, Mrs. Viola Lang and Mrs. Gertrude Becker, Owen, Mrs. Esther Ayer, Unity, and Mrs. Clara Clouse, Loyal
