   For the past year and a half she was employed at the home of Dr. H. C. Krohn, 
   where her death took place.
   She was ambitious and industrious, of exceptionally kind and lovable traits 
   that won the esteem of her friends. She will long be remembered by those 
   who knew her best.
   The remains were taken to the home of her parents, where they reposed until 
   Thursday morning at 10 o'clock, when funeral services were held by Rev.

   Jane M. (Kletzien) Snippen, 66, passed away peacefully in her 
   sleep June 18, 2010, from the complications of a six-year 
   battle with ovarian cancer. She was born May 21, 1944, in Two 
   Rivers, Wis. 
   (Survivors omitted for privacy.)
   Jane was preceded in death by her mother, Albina 
   (Rozmarynoski) Kletzien; and former husband, John Snippen. 
   Jane graduated from Menasha High School, in Menasha, Wis., 
   and went on to Wisconsin State Beauty College. She began 
   working as a beautician and went on to have a wide and varied 
   career, including owning a ceramic shop, working in retail and 
   finally retiring from more than 10 years working as a bank 
   teller for Union State Bank of West Salem, Wis. When she 
   retired, she moved to Las Vegas to help in the care of her 
   father. They have lived together and worked together on 
   wood crafts for more than 13 years and have been a source of 
   companionship and help to each other along the way. Jane was 
   very talented and creative in all things, but had truly found her 
   passion when she started dancing almost seven years ago. She 
   loved to dance and all types were fun. Early on, her favorites 
   were the East Coast Swing, Cha-Cha and Rhumba. As time and 
   her disease progressed, she settled into some of the more 
   elegant ballroom dances -- the Foxtrot, Tango and Waltz were 
   some of her favorites of these. She and her partner, of four 
   years, (private), have spent many many hours at dance classes 
   and even more fun -- on the dance floor. They had been on many 
   cruises and vacations and Jane truly was able to live her life 
   to the fullest. In the true spirit of Jane, she celebrated and 
   enjoyed every friendship, every moment and every memory. She 
   will be fondly remembered, deeply loved and sadly missed by all 
   of us who love her. There will be a memorial open house from 5-8 
   p.m. Thursday, June 24, at Jane's home.

   Mysterious Disappearance Explained at Last
   Strange Tale Revealing the Downfall and Death Far Away from Home of a Manitowoc Man
   Manitowoc, Wis., May 15.-
   News has been received in this city of the death of Reinhold Summitz at San
   Antonio, Tex., on April 18, of consumption. The deceased left Manitowoc in 
   February and nothing was known of his whereabouts until a letter was received
   by County Judge Anderson from the young man's father in Germany stating that
   he had just received a cable from San Antonio announcing his son's death. He
   requested Judge Anderson to investigate the affair for him. This Judge Anderson
   has done and his investigations have brought to light an interesting story.
   Reinhold Summitz was the nephew of August Summitz, who died a year ago in
   Maple Grove, this county, leaving an estate of about $10,000 to his only
   brother, Carl Summitz of Bischofsweerder, Germany. Reinhold acted as his father's
   agent in the settlement of the estate and his father allowed him to retain
   $4,500. This sum was paid him by the Manitowoc county court in February. This
   sudden acquisition of so much money proved to be the young man's ruin. He
   persisted in keeping it on his person, left his wife and baby, and started on
   a career of riotous living. He went to Milwaukee where he stopped at the
   Republican House and other hotels. He left Milwaukee and the next his friends
   heard of was his death. His last days were sad. Robbed of his money by a boy
   he befriended, he died among strangers on April 18. The following letter 
   written to Judge Anderson by the physician who attended Summitz tells the
   San Antonio, Tex., May 9, '99-
   Judge J.S. Anderson, Manitowoc Wis.-
   Dear Sir: Your favor of May 2nd received. In reply will say that all papers
   that were in the possession of Mr. Sumnitz at his death were forwarded by me
   to Mr. Carl Sumnitz. There were a few papers and little of any importance.
   Have also written Mr. Sumnitz in full regarding the death of his son and an
   account of his being robbed and a recovery of a part of the money through
   the sheriff (John Campbell) of this county.
   I was called to see Mr. Sumnitz about the 27th of last March. He was stopping
   at the Glenarm, a small hotel, but a good one, here. He had with him a young
   man, Frank Clark, a former attendant in St. Paul's sanitarium, Dallas, Tex.
   This boy was not well and Reinhold brought him to San Antonio with him to
   look after his wants. The day after he reached this place I was called to see
   him and found him confined to his bed, a very sick man with pulmonary 
   tuberculosis. After three or four days I found it necessary to employ a trained
   nurse and she and Clark were to divide the nights. About April 4th or 5th I
   was called to see Sumnitz about 3 o'clock in the morning and found him very 
   much excited. I then learned that the boy Clark had left the house about
   1 o'clock and had robbed Sumnitz of all his money, about $2,750. Three $500
   packages, one $1,000 package and the balance loose. This was in an envelope
   in the inside vest pocket under Sumnitz' pillow. Sumnitz did not speak of 
   any valuable papers being with the money. Two or three days later the boy
   Clark was captured in Taylor, Tex., and brought to this place. I carried him
   to Sumnitz the night he was brought here, but he would not tell what he had
   done with the money. About $700 was found on him. The next day he employed
   a lawyer, Nat Jones and he with a deputy sheriff went to the hiding place 
   and found $660. By a contract made with Sumnitz they were to receive seven
   twenty-sevenths of money found. This left Sumnitz $489, which amount has
   been accounted for to Mr. Carl Sumnitz and a receipted bill sent to him 
   with other papers. I am told that no more money has been recovered by Jones,
   but that he says he thinks that the boy has more hid and may give it up
   later. The boy (Clark) was tried about ten days ago and was given two years
   in the penitentiary. For any further information you might write to Sheriff
   John Campbell, or the prosecuting attorney, Carlos Bee. Sumnitz died on the
   15th of April, in the third stage of consumption. 
   Very respectfully, M.M. Elmenson.
   Mrs. Sumnitz and child are living with her parents on Wells street, Chicago.
   She knew nothing of her husband's whereabouts and first learned of his death
   from Judge Anderson.
