W. F. Brunckhorst Dies Here Mon.

William F. Brunckhorst, 80, resident of Niobrara County for 54 years died Monday at the Niobrara Memorial Hospital following a lingering illness.

Funeral services were held Wednesday at the Peet Chapel with the Rev. Leroy Kellerman of St. Paul's Lutheran Church officiating. Burial was in the Lusk Cemetery.

Mr. and Mrs. Brunckhorst observed their golden wedding anniversary last June 10 in Lusk. They were married in 1914 at the Lutheran Church in Node by the Rev. Martin K. Leimer.

Mr. Brunckhorst came to Wyoming from Pierce County, Nebraska in 1909 and took a homestead east of Lusk. In 1910 he shipped his farming equipment and horses to Wyoming in an immigrant car. He made final proof on his homestead three years later. During that time he worked part time on the Stewart Sides and Tom Bell ranches.

Mr. and Mrs. Brunckhorst lived on his homestead until 1942 when the land was sold. Mr. Brunckhorst worked at Lance Creek during World War II and later followed the carpenter trade until he became crippled with arthritis.

He is survived by his wife and three daughters, Mrs. Harold (Catherine) Wilson of Harrison; Mrs. Harry (Mary) Sides, and Mrs. William (Wyoma) Hales who live on ranches in Niobrara County. A daughter and son died previously.
