(KS) Belleville Telescope June 1950

Joseph Kuchera, son of Edward and Anna Kuchera, was born October 25, 1886, on a farm northeast of Belleville, and departed this life May 31, 1950, at his home south of Belleville at the age of 63 years, 7 months and 6 days.

On January 8, 1931, he was united in marriage to Mary E. Goodyear of Belleville. To this union three children were born, two sons and a daughter, Joseph Edward and Marilyn Blanche, both of the home, and Michael Lewis who preceded him in death in 1944.

Mr. Kuchera spent all of his life in and near Belleville. At an early age he began work on the Rock Island railroad. Liking his work and being efficient, he worked in the Rock Island yards as a hostler for more than 40 years. He was compelled to retire in 1947 because of ill health.

He was well known and a highly-respected citizen. He was a kind and loving father and husband and a good neighbor who will be sadly missed by relatives and a wide circle of friends.

Left to mourn his departure are his wife and two children; two sisters, Mrs. Julia Hayek of Los Angeles, Cal., and Mrs. Blanche Lash of Omaha, Neb.; a brother, Edward Kuchera of Herington; and a half-sister, Mrs. Anna Bartos of Omaha. Another half-sister, Mary Kasl, and a half-brother, Wesley Smahel preceded him in death.

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon, June 2, at First Baptist church in Belleville, the Rev. L.E. Daniel of Juniata, Neb., conducting the service. Interment was in Belleville cemetery.
