Charles Schwalbe Chilton Times May 26, 1928

The sudden and unexpected death of Charles H. Schwalbe, proprietor of the Central House, on Monday morning was a sad shock to members of his family, relatives and friends ass he had been in his usual good health a half hour previous to his passing. Mr. Schwalbe was stricken while getting his mail at the post office shortly before 8:00 o'clock that morning. A doctor was summoned and about fifteen minutes later he recovered consciousness. He was then taken to the Central House, walked into the lobby and deposited the mail, then stepped into his private living room, where when about to sit in a chair he received a second stroke and passed away.

Chas. H. Schwalbe, son of Mrs. Chas. Schwalbe, Sr., was born on a farm in the town of Eaton, Manitowoc County, on March 10, 1882. He spent his early life on the farm with his parents, coming with them to this city at the age of 14 years, when his father assumed ownership of the Central House. On June 2, 1903 he was united in marriage to Miss Jennie Jensen of this city and took charge of the hotel business from his father. For the past twenty-five years he had conducted the business with a good patronage and made it one of the best hotels in this section of the state.

He is survived by his wife and two daughters, Mrs. E. O Guenther of Kiel and Miss Myrtle of this city. He is also survived by his mother, Mrs. Charles Schwalbe, Sr., one brother, William of Yakima, Wash., five sisters, Mrs. Lina VonBergen, Milwaukee, Mrs. C. A. Keller, Wilmette, Ill., Mrs. G. A. Magee, Two Rivers, Mrs. C. J. Zimmer of Milwaukee, Mrs. Alex Mielke of Appleton, one granddaughter, Marjorie Anna Guenther of Kiel.

The deceased was a man of excellent business ability and during his years of management of the Central House it had the reputation of being a popular stopping place for transcients. He had the faculty of making and retraining friends and was widely known throughout this section of the state. All who knew him regret deeply his sudden and unexpected demise. He took an active part in the civil and fraternal life of the city and belonged to the GUG Germania Society, the Order of Elks lodge of Menasha and the Fraternal Order of Eagles of this city. He was a kind, loving husband and father and his death has plunged his family into the deepest sorrow.
The funeral was held Thursday from the home, Rev. W. A Arpke officiating, with interment in the Hillside cemetery.
