Obituary ....

John Gross, Blacksmith at Gordonville, Dies; Funeral Rites Held

John Gross, 45 years old, a widely known citizen of Gordonville, died at his home Saturday afternoon of paralysis of which he was stricken two days before. The body was brought to the Macke-Wilson-Statler funeral home and later returned to the family home.

Funeral services held this afternoon at Christ Lutheran Church in Gordonville and was in charge of Rev. Hugo Hoyer. Military honors were given their departed comrade by members of the Altental-Joerns Post of Jackson of which he had been a member. The flag-draped casket was taken to the Gordonville cemetery for burial.

John Alfred Gross was born near New Wells on a farm, and was the son of Edward and Elizabeth (Wallmann) Gross. He began to serve an apprenticeship as blacksmith then enlisted on September 21, 1917, in the Army and served overseas, where he participated in several battles and was gassed on October 26, 1918. He was discharged as corporal from Co. B 314th Engineers at Camp Zachary Taylor, Ky., on April 15, 1919.

Returning to his vocation, that of blacksmith, he conducted a shop in Fruitland for some time, but 14 years ago went to Gordonville.

On November 21, 1920, he was married to Theresa Wunderlich, who survives him together with one son, Gilbert. Two children preceded him in death. Other surviving near relatives are two brothers, Carl Gross of St. Peter, Ill., and Edward Gross of Belgique, and two sisters, Mrs. Charles Leimer of Fruitland and Mrs. Ed Ruehling of near Old Appleton.

He was a livelong member of the Lutheran Church and was a member of the board of trustees of Christ Church at Gordonville.
