Funeral services were held at St. Michael Catholic church in Suring Monday morning for Mrs. Henry Baccus, 73, who died at her home early Friday morning. She had been ill for the past year and a half.

Mrs. Baccus, nee Rosa Prausa, was born in Kewaunee county June 15, 1890 (sic - should be 1889). She married Henry Baccus Oct. 8, 1911 in Chicago, and they came to Oconto county 45 years ago. They had made their home in Suring for the past 41 years. She was a member of St. Michael church and its Altar and Christian Mothers society, and was a past president of the Suring American Legion auxiliary.

Rosary services were conducted at the Soulek funeral home Saturday and Sunday evenings. The Rev. Leander Nickel officiated at the Monday rites.

Surviving are her husband; one daughter, Elizabeth, Mrs. Charles Christensen, Port Washington; three sons, M/Sgt. Clyde of Omaha, Neb; Oliver of Sayner and Clinton of Suring; two sisters, Mrs. Fred Teteak, Manitowoc and Mrs. Charles Kubichek of Washington, and 10 grandchildren.

* My notes - Rose was the daughter of Charles N. Prausa (1865-1950) and Mary Kustka (1868-1898)
