Sunday's Obituary - Conrad Reimann

This is the obituary for Conrad G. Reimann. He was my great grand uncle, on my mother's side of the family, through his marriage to Norma T. Polsfuss. Norma was the sister of my great grandmother, Alma (Polsfuss) Schauer. He was known to my family as "uncle Con". Unfortunately, I don't have any photos scanned of Conrad Reimann.

This obituary is from the Wisconsin State Journal, February 19, 1986. I have added the items within brackets to clarify.

The above obituary is from the Wisconsin State Journal, February 19, 1986. It was probably written by a member of the Reimann family and not the newspaper itself. I'm publishing it here for educational and genealogical purposes.
