Sunday's Obituary - Marvin D. Reimann

This is the obituary of Marvin D. Reimann, my first cousin twice removed. He was the son of Conrad and Norma (Polsfuss) Reimann. Norma was the sister of my great grandmother, Alma (Polsfuss) Schauer. Marvin would have been a first cousin to my grandmother, and that's the "twice removed" part of the equation. He was a twin brother to Melvin Reimann, though I don't know if they were identical or fraternal twins.

This is from the August 24, 1984 edition of the Wisconsin State Journal.

The above obituary is from the Wisconsin State Journal, August 24, 1984. 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.
