Parents

Family: Elizabeth Lydia Weix (b. March 13, 1900, d. September 14, 1985)

Biography

  • Birth: Edward Anton Pflum was born on June 15, 1897 in Marshfield, Wood Co, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: He and Elizabeth Lydia Weix were married in August 1922 in Colby, Clark Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: Edward Anton Pflum died on October 3, 1928, at age 31, in Seattle, King Co, Washington.
  • Note: Funeral services for Dr. E. A. Pflum, whose death [on 3 Oct] was chronicled in this paper last week, will be held at St. John's Catholic Church at Marshfield Friday morning, Oct. 12th, at 9:00 o'clock, and interment will take place in the Marshfield Cemetery.
    Funeral services for his uncle, Anton J. Mettelka, will be held at the same time. The bodies of the two men arrived Wednesday and lie in state at the F. X. Pflum home in Marshfield, 210 North Central Ave. Colby men will be pallbearers for Dr. Pflum and members of the old regimental band of Marshfield will be pallbearers for Mr. Mettelka. William Witt was buried out west.
    Dr. Pflum was born in Marshfield June 15th, 1897, where he graduated from St. John's Catholic School and the McKinley High School. In 1915 he entered Marquette University and studied dentistry for four years. His twin brother, Dr. R. J. Pflum, and another brother, Alvin, also studied dentistry at the same time and graduated the same years. The deceased practiced his profession in Colby, Wis. since 1920, following his purchase of the practice of Dr. Chester Nystrum. In Aug. 1922 he was married to Miss Elizabeth Weix, daughter of Mrs. Joseph Weix. He was a member of the Colby order of Foresters.
    He is survived by his wife; two small children, Ruth, age four years, Edward, Jr., age two years; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. X. Pflum of Marshfield; two brothers; and one sister, Mrs. R. A. Aschenbrener of Milwaukee. His parents returned to this country Sunday, Sept. 30th from a trip to Austria.
    His death brought the bitter cup of sorrow to the lips of friends and relatives for it is sad at any time to stand beside the bed of the dying and watch life's ebbing tide drifting the loved one into the great ocean of eternity. But when the news of death comes over the wire suddenly, the shock of pain and sorrow is much greater. It seems to many of us that it was but yesterday that the deceased was upon our streets greeting his friends with a happy, "Good morning" and tomorrow all that was mortal of our townsman will be at peaceful rest. Thus closes the life of this noble young man.
    According to additional information received, the hunting party, of which Dr. Pflum was a member, consisted of four men: Dr. A. A. Pflum, William Witt, Anton J. Mettelka and W. A. Roth. However, Mr. Roth left the car to hunt alone while the others proceeded to a spot some distance away. Roth was already in the field near the railroad crossing when he heard a crash and hastened to the point where he heard it. He found the auto demolished and the three occupants dead. It is said that death in each case was instantaneous.
