Mrs. Badger Dies in Keshena Monday

Mrs. Badger, wife of O.F. Badger, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. E.A. Allen, Monday afternoon.  A month ago she suffered a stroke of paralysis, and her family had been apprehensive of the outcome from that time.  She was seventy-seven years of age.

Her maiden name was Callie Hudson.  She and her husband lived their early life in Green Bay, and twenty-seven years ago they came to Keshena and have been an important part of that community life ever since.  For many years, Mr. Badger was the operator of the grist-mill, and in later years he had been superintendent of the power plant.  Both he and his wife have added much of the joy of living for others who have made their home on the reservation.

There are two children: Frances, and Mrs. E.A. Allen, and Edith, mother of Louis and Elsie Schultz.  Mrs. Schultz died many years ago.

The funeral was held yesterday afternoon.  Rev. Bell conducted a short service at the Allen home, after which the body was taken to Green Bay for burial.  The service at the grave was conducted by a Christian Science reader.  The pall-bearers were Mr. Schalland, Mr. Johnson of Keshena, Blaine Page, S.B. Crow, Ira Weeks, and Mayor Larson of Shawano.

The relatives present were: Mrs. Mary Nordvi, Mrs. Joe Hudson, and Mrs. Lehman, of Waupaca, Mrs. Frank Gray and son Clarence, Mrs. George Wells, of Antigo, and Mr. and Mrs. Ira Weeks of Shawano.
