--------- Barber, Theodore H. (17 MAR 1859 – 20 MAR 1932)
The funeral services of the late Theodore H. Barber, 73, who passed away Sunday morning, March 20, 1932, following a stroke which he suffered Friday evening, were conducted from the M.E. Church in Withee, Tuesday afternoon, Rev. James Irish of Thorp officiating. Interment was made in Riverside Cemetery, with Masonic rites.
The very large attendance at the funeral services were fitting tribute to the life and character of Mr. Barber. Friends came from long distances to unite with those of his home community in the last testimonial of their esteem for him. The floral tributes were many and beautiful. The funeral cortege to the cemetery was one of the longest that has made the sad journey there in many years.
Mr. Barber was born March 17, 1859, at Chilton, Wis. His boyhood was spent there and on reaching manhood he came to Central Wisconsin where he engaged in teaching. He was married at Cadott, to Miss Flora McCarthy, who preceded him in death sixteen years ago. To this union were born two children, Joseph F. who died thirteen years ago, and Mrs. Herman Bartholomay of Withee.
Thirty-five years ago he came to Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) from Boyd, where he has since resided, teaching in the rural and village schools. He was principal of the schools of Withee, Boyd and Humbird, and his last position was held at Longwood, eighteen years ago, after which he retired from the teaching profession. Since retiring from teaching he was engaged in the insurance business.
He had always been a public spirited citizen, and during his long life in his community he was active in its civic affairs. He was careful and conscientious in his business and his service and counsel were frequently sought and never refused. It is the good fortune of only few men to come into such high regard as he was held in as a friend and neighbor. Loyal in principal, courteous and kindly, he felt an interest in those about him which drew them to him.
His passing brings sorrow to his many friends, as well as relatives. Among those from away who came to attend the funeral were his brother, Dr. and Mrs. Jos. Barber of Marathon City, his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Ursula Barber and three children of Tigerton; Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Larson, and Otto Abel, Wausau, George Bue, and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Beilfuss, Neillsville; O.A. Rhea and Mrs. Louis Wasldorf, Thorp; Mr. and Mrs. Voightlander, Curtiss and Mrs. Frank Price, Cadott.
