Funeral services for Theodore Jefferson Schweikert, 62, were held Wednesday morning, Sept. 22, at 10 o'clock at St. Paul Ev. Lutheran church with Rev. R. E. Langholz officiating.

The body lay in state at the church from 9 o'clock in the morning until the time of the services. Burial was in the Guttenberg City cemetery.

Mr. Schweikert entered a Prairie du Chien hospital Aug. 25, was released, and then returned for surgery Sept. 13. He died Sunday morning, Sept. 19.

He was born a son of Ed and Harriet, nee Hyde, Schweikert, March 3, 1909, at Osterdock. He was baptized at the Methodist Church in Guttenberg and was confirmed at St. Paul Lutheran church in Guttenberg.

He was a graduate of Guttenberg high school and also attended business college at La Crosse, Wis. At the age of 18 years, he moved with his family from Osterdock to Guttenberg.

He was married to Ila Eckart, June 25, 1930. They lived in Guttenberg, where Mr. Schweikert was in the car business. In 1941, they moved to Monona, where he had been employed for most of the time as a car salesman by Peglow Motor Co.

His salesmanship was not only his occupation but also his hobby. He had been a good baseball player in his youth and his intense interest in sports continued through the years. He was a member of St. Paul Ev. Lutheran church in Monona.

Surviving are his wife, Ila; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Schweikert of Guttenberg; a son, Daniel and wife, Jonita, and their children, Tobin and Jenny; a daughter, Dianne, at home; a daughter, Nancy and her husband, Robert Hubacher, and their children, Tina, Ted, Heidi, and Heather of Waterloo, Wis.; two sisters, Mrs. Carl (Juanita) Kann and Mrs. Dale (Eunice) Jaquette, both of Guttenberg; and one brother, Hubert of Guttenberg.
