Granton (11 May 1972)

The W.S.C.S. of the Granton United Methodist Church met last Thursday afternoon with Mrs. Verla Hales as hostess. Mrs. Dorothy Crandall presented a topic dealing with drugs and led the devotions. Visitors were Mrs. Eunice Kapfer, Mrs. Elda Bartz and Mrs. Ed Kleinschmidt.

The W.S.C.S. of the York Center United Methodist Church met last Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Nyle Benedict.

Mrs. Myrtie Davis and her daughter, Mrs. Bernard Kitzhaber of Greenwood visited recently at the new home of Mrs. Davis’ daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. William Wolf and family, at Nekoosa. While they were there, two-year-old Jill Wolf stumbled on a plant and fell on a broken fruit jar. She was taken to a Wisconsin Rapids hospital for treatment of a cut above the knee which required 22 stitches to close. Jill’s leg was also put into a cast. Her five-year-old sister, Emily, who was struck near the eye recently by a B-B gun pellet, is recovering nicely. The Wolf children visited Satruday afternoon at the Davis home while their parents attended a wedding.

Mrs. Otto Schmidtke, along with a number of persons from the Sherwood area, attended funeral services last Thursday in Verona for her niece, Mrs. Robert Bohman, 21, who lost her life in a traffic accident.
