Services for A.E. Bachle
Douglas Budget - November 19, 1953Many friends gathered yesterday afternoon at the Congregational church to pay their last respects to A.E. (Al) Bachle, 79, who died quietly in his sleep at his home Saturday night. Rev. H.H. Lindeman officiated and burial was in Douglas Park cemetery.
Mr. Bachle had not been in the best of health for the past year but his sudden death came as a shock to his family and many friends.
Alfred Emil Bachle was born in 1874 at Lincoln, Ill., the son of Jacob and Katherine Bachle. As a small boy, he moved with his parents to Beatrice, Neb., where he attended school and grew to manhood. On March 2, 1902, he was united in marriage with Miss Carolyn Hoyer at Ellis, Neb. They operated a farm in that community for a number of years and Mr. Bachle served several terms on the school board. He later was a traveling salesman for the Acme and Dempster Mill companies.
In 1914, the Bachles moved to Douglas, first operating a ranch and later founding the Douglas Hide, Fur & Wool Co. which he operated until his death. The couple celebrated their golden wedding anniversary March 2, 1952.
Mr. Bachle was a member of the Congregational church, Douglas Lions club, and the Odd Fellows lodge at Beatrice, Neb.
Surviving are his wife; a son, Alfred H. of Miami, Fla., and three brothers, Dr. E.P. Bachle of Liberty, Neb., Charles of Beatrice, Neb., and Fred of Tecumseh, Neb., all of whom were here with their wives to attend the funeral. Other out-of-town relatives here included Mrs. Randle of Miami, Fla., Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Hayer and Mrs. E. Schender of Morris, Minn.
