The entire community was saddened Saturday morning when word spread of the death of the village's most pleasant young lady, Genvieve Brewer daughter of Mr. and Mrs. I. V. Brewer. She was one of those rare personalities that constantly wore a smile. It was a smile from her heart and was not for a few but for everyone she met. The esteem in which she was held was well exemplified, when at the funeral service the spacious Sacred Heart Church was filled with those who loved and respected her. All the classes of which she was a member were present in a body.

Miss Brewer was taken to St. Olaf Hospital at Austin, Friday October 7th and was operated on immediately for appendicitis. Although critically ill she seemed on the way to recovery until last Friday when pneumonia set in. She peacefully passed away about 8 o'clock Saturday morning, October 15th at the young age of 16 years, 8 months and 29 days.

She was born January 16th, 1922 in this Village and has spent her entire life in this immediate community. On March 30, 1930 she received First Holy Communion and was confirmed into the Catholic faith May 14, 1933. After completing the local parochial school she entered high school in 1936 and was a member of the Junior class.

She is survived by her parents, three sisters, Veronica, Florence, and Catherine. Two brothers preceded her in death, both having died in infancy. And a host of friends and relatives.

The pallbearers were: Paul Schaefer, Terry Canney, Leo Wagner, Norbert Meyers, Lawrence Goergen and James Krebsbach.

The funeral service was conducted by the Rev. Father Schneider from the Sacred Heart Church here, Wednesday morning, October 19th with interment in the Sacred heart Cemetery.
