Anton Stucky Dies Shortly After Retiring Saturday Evening:
Funeral Rites Today for
Anton Stucky Sr., prominent Waseca druggist who located here before the turn of the century, died suddenly Saturday evening at his home, 11 E. Elm Ave. The 87 year-old Man, familiarly known as "Dad" Stucky, had completed his day's business as usual and had talked to his tenants, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Barden shortly before he retired to his room for the night. It was when they went to his room to bring him the evening newspaper that they found him dead. Although carrying on his usual activities, Mr. Stucky had taken medicine for a heart condition for some time.
Episcopalian rites will be conducted at 3:00 this afternoon, Tuesday at the Grace Lutheran Church because of the larger capacity of the latter church. The Rev. William C. Wedge will officiae. Burial will be in Woodville cemetery.
A native of Minnesotan, Anton Stucky was born March 20, 1868 in Milton township, Dodge County. His parents were Anton and Ann Park Stucky and of their original family of eight children, only one, Peter Stucky of Pine Island now survives. Another brother, D.C. Stucky of Pine Island died April 12 at the age of 83.
After high school Anton took a course at Drews School of Pharmacy in Minneapolis and was registered as a pharmacist in January 1890. He first practiced pharmacy at Ada for about three years and later at Spring Valley, Minnesota until 1899 when he came to Waseca. Following the death of H.H. Suddith, Mr. Stucky bought in as a partner of the S.H. Preston in the drug store which as known as Suddith and Preston. That partnership continued as Preston and Stucky until Mr. Preston's death in 1915 when Mr. Stucky bought the Preston interest and became sole owner. Mr. Stucky and his son, Paul have been partners in the drug store for a number of years and another son, Anton, has a similar business in Waterville. In 1891 Mr. Stucky was married to Susie Naegeli of Mantorville, Minnesota. She died in December of 1917 and the youngest of their three boys, Alois died in 1931. There is one granddaughter, Paul Stucky's daughter, Susan.
Mr. Stucky was a member of the Calvary Episcopal church, various Masonic orders and the Osman Temple of the Shrine. Out of high esteem for the veteran businessman, it is suggested that a representative from each of the businesses meet outside the Grace Lutheran church at 2:45 to attend the services as a body.
