Joseph Hlousek's Obituary
April 18, 1922

The funeral of old gent Joseph Hlousek who died last Sunday of pneumonia at the home of his daughter, Mrs. John Cahoy in town, was held Tuesday morning, April 16 from the Catholic church and buried in cemetery in Tabor. Rt. Rev. Msg. E.H. Bouska performed last rites and celebrating Requiem Mass. As stated before, the deceased contracted pneumonia due to extreme exposure. The facts of the case are not known but it is the supposition that he had an attack of the flu accompanied by high fever and in delirium, left his house and wandered from midnight to 5 a.m. the next morning on the tracks two blocks away. He was picked up by J.W. Hruska who heard his cries. The exposure, of course, brought on pneumonia, which ended in death. Dr. Blezek tended to him.

Mr. Hlousek was born in Krasna, Moravia, Dec. 12, 1847 and came to this country 37 to 38 years ago to Lesterville, South Dakota. A year later he filed on a homestead in Boyd County, Butte is county seat, Nebraska, but a year later came back with his family. Later he took up a claim near Lynch, Nebraska, but abandoned it to take up a homestead near Fairfax, South Dakota where the family resided for a number of years.

His wife died in 1907 and three years later he moved to Tabor and lived alone. He is survived by his children: Joseph Hlousek of Chicago, Illinois, Mrs. Josephine Cahoy of Tabor, South Dakota, Mrs. Antonie Ruble of Ainsworth, Nebraska, Frank Hlousek, Meade County, South Dakota, Adolph Hlousek of Bonesteel, South Dakota and Mrs. Daisy Havemann of Verdigre, Nebraska.

Note: Joseph's obituary says that the funeral was held Tuesday morning, April 16. April 16 is the day he died and it was a Sunday. He was buried on Tuesday, April 18.
