Death Takes Hugo Splittgerber at Wyne, Nebraska

Word of the death of Hugo Splittgerber of Van Tassell, who died at Norfolk, Nebraska, Sunday, March 24, came as a shock to friends here.

Mr. Splittgerber who seemed in his usual good health had accompanied Mr. and Mrs. Ferd Price of Prairie Center to Norfolk on the preceeding Tuesday and suffered a cerebral hemorrhage in the bus depot there while waiting for a bus to Wayne, Nebr., where he was going to visit a son.

He was rushed to a Norfolk hospital where he died the following Sunday. His son, Ernest Splittgerber of Wayne and his daughter, Mrs. Elmer Harder of Torrington rushed at once to their father, Mrs. Harder going by plane. Another son, George of Whiting, Ind., also arrived before his father passed away.

Funeral services were held at Wayne, Nebr., on Wednesday, March 27, in St. Paul's Lutheran Church. Rev. T. J. C. Schuldt officiated and Beckenhauer funeral home had charge of committal in the Greenwood cemetery.

Hugo Splittgerber, who was 70 years of age at the time of his death, was the son of William and Albertina Splittgerber and was born May 27, 1875, at Schwedt unter Oder, Pomerania, Germany. He came to America with his parents in 1881. The family settled in Wayne county, Nebraska. June 25, 1913 he was married to Meta Jorgensen of Bazile Mille, Nebr. The young couple then moved to Van Tassell, Wyo., where they were engaged in the ranch business, until 1919 when they returned to Wayne where they lived on a farm. Mrs. Splittgerber died in November of 1926 and in 1937 Mr. Splittgerber again retuned to Van Tassell where he has since resided.

He is survived by his three children, Mrs. Elmer Harder of Torrington, his two sons, Ernest of Wayne and George of Whiting, Ind. and three brothers, William of Wayne, Bernnard and Carl of Pilger, Nebr., and two sisters, Mrs. Phil Damme and Miss Emma Splittgerber of Wayne, five grandchildren also survive him.
