Edward Hull Laid To Rest Last Week

                Rippey—Edward Hull, 65, of Milton Junction, Wis., passed away Saturday, Nov. 19, while hunting deer in the wooded area of northern Wisconsin.

                He had suffered a severe heart attack a few years ago and had retired from active work.  After his health improved, he had continued hunting trips, which was his favorite sport.  His body was found near at the carcass of a buck deer, which he had shot, skinned and tagged; presumably, he died from over exertion.

                Edward was well known in the Rippey locality, where he lived during his youth.  He was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Hull, who for many years operated a general merchandise store in Rippey.

                The family moved to Milton Junction about 45 years ago, where they again engaged in the mercantile business, which Edward continued after the death of his parents.

                Survivors include his wife; two daughters; a brother, Chapin, of Milton Junction and a sister, Mrs. Carl Stiger of Toledo.

                Mr. and Mrs. O. R. Stevens and H. S. Stevens left last Tuesday afternoon to be present for the last rites, which were held from the funeral home in Milton Junction, Wednesday afternoon.
