TWO DAUGHTERS DIE
WITHIN ONE WEEK
FATHER ATTENDING FUNERAL
OF ONE WHILE OTHER WAS
DYING AT HOSPITAL
Miss Agnes Stuempges, who was operated on for appendicitis March 31, died yesterday at the Antigo Hospital. She was born April 2, 1902, at Coon Valley and live there until she was fourteen years old, when her parents went to live at Westby. She resided at Westby up to last fall when she went to live with her parents on a farm near Polar.
Those who survive are her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Stuempges, six brothers, Louis Stuempges of Baker, Montana, Walter of Aberdeen, S.D., Adolph, Edward, Herman and Erwin of Polar and two sister, Vivian and Bernice, also of Polar.
The father and one of her brothers had been called to Coon Valley by the death of another daughter, Mrs. Joseph Stromstad, who died from pneumonia on April 1. They were notified that Miss Stuempges' condition had become critical and the brother returned. Mr. Stuempges returned later, but did not arrive until yesterday, too late to see his daughter alive.
The funeral services will be held from St. Peter's church at Polar, Tuesday afternoon.
