A retired Nelson Muffler Company employee, Carl Henry Diercks of Rt. 2 Neillsville, died August 4, at the age of 70. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon from the Georgas Funeral Home with the Rev. Richard Eggen of Zion American Lutheran Church officiating. Burial was in the Columbia Cemetery.

Born August 25, 1902, in Oshkosh to Edward and Roselina (Volkman) Diercks, he was educated in Clark County schools and did farm work locally as a young man.
