      LIFE-LONG BRISTOL RESIDENT DIES

      Anton Krebs, born and raised in the town of Bristol, passed away at his home in that township last Sunday, May 27th, a few minutes before noon, after a ten day illness from flu and pneumonia. His age was 68 years, 9 months and 8 days.

      He was born in the town of Bristol on Aug. 12, 1869, and was the son of J. M. and Rosena Krebs. A lifetime of three score and ten years in one community means an intimate knowledge of the people and its affairs in that community, and a life thus spent is known equally as well among his fellows. Hence "Tony" Krebs was one of the best known men in this community.

      Reared on a farm, he followed that vocation through life. Growing to manhood, on August 25, 1896, he was united in marriage to Miss Ida Wavra, and they began housekeeping on a farm he had purchased in Pierceville. This was their home for about three years. He then sold that farm and purchasing the homestead farm in Bristol, he moved there, and has since that time lived on the home farm, where he died. Four children blessed their union, all of whom are living. They are Julius Edward Krebs of Sun Prairie township, Mrs. Leslie Veith of the township, and Marion and Mark at home. These with the widowed mother together with seven grandchildren, his father, J. M. Krebs, and three brothers, and four sisters, together with other relatives and hosts of friends survive to cherish his memory.

      The brothers are Edward Krebs, of this village, Will Krebs of Little Sioux, Iowa, and Joe M. Krebs of Milwaukee, and the sisters are Mrs. Florence Piepenbrink, of Wauwatosa, Mrs. Cal Strohmenger, of Sun Prairie, Mrs. Robert Strohmenger of the township, and Miss Dorothy Krebs of this village.

      Funeral services were held Tuesday morning from Sacred Hearts Church in this village at 10:30 o'clock. Solemn Requiem Mass was sung, with Rev. Fr. Haeusler, pastor, as Celebrant, Rev. John Voelker of Waukesha, as Deacon, and Fr. Gensler, East Bristol, as sub-Deacon. Fr. Haeusler delivered the sermon and paid splendid tribute to the deceased. He stated that the deceased was highly respected and beloved by all who knew him, and that the large number of friends, present to pay their last respects, attested to that fact. He was a kind neighbor ever ready to lend a helping hand whenever needed, attributing his love of his neighbor as the outgrowth of greater love for his Maker. He also spoke loving words of comfort to the bereaved family, saying that Anton had gone to meet his Maker, fully prepared and resigned to the Will of God; and that they should be comforted by the fact that the parting was only temporary, as all would someday be united before the throne of God.

      Interment was in Sacred Hearts cemetery, and six nephews, Joseph, Edward and Frank Bedner, Theodore and Edward Krebs, and Howard Strohmenger bore the casket to the last resting place.

      The out-of-town friends who attended the large funeral are named as follows: Mrs. Florence Piepenbrink, Wauwatosa, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Krebs, and Miss Margaret Krebs, of Milwaukee, William Krebs, Little Sioux, Iowa, Mrs. Emil Peshak, Mr. John Kripps, Mrs. Anna Hanley of Madison, Mr. and Mrs. John Prosser, Mr. and and Mrs. Frank Wavra and family of Columbus, Mr. and Mrs. John Derr, of Hampden, Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Motl of Waterloo, and Frank Motl of Marshall.
