William F. Yandre Claimed by Death


Former Farmer at Milford Stricken; Funeral Thursday


William F. Yandre, 316 North Montgomery Street, died last night after an illness, to which infirmities of age were a contributing factor.  He was a native of Germany and was 88 years of age. He came to this country when he was nine years of age, accompanying his parents.


Surviving are one stepdaughter, Mrs. Meta Hendricks, Lake Mills, and three sons, Ed Yandre, Orlando, Fla.; Ben, Milwaukee, and Arnim Galesburg, Ill.  There are two brothers and one sister, Gustav, Lake Mills; Frank, North Prairie; Mrs. Lena Hooper, Lake Mills.  There is one grandson, Tom Yandre, a naval officer now on duty in Oregon.


Mr. Yandre was a member of a Methodist church at Madison.  At one time he had been a farmer near Milford.  He retired in 1912 and moved to Madison.  His wife died there ten years ago.  In 1939 he moved to Watertown.


The funeral will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. from the Nowack funeral home, the Rev. Victor Thomas of the Moravian church officiating.  Burial will be in the family lot in Oak Hill cemetery.


Friends may call at the Nowack funeral home Wednesday evening and Thursday up to the time of the service to pay their respects.
