      Emil W. Tonne
      Emil W. Tonne of Tipton Kans., died Monday, April 27 1987 at the Osborne County Memorial Hospital at the age of 80 years.
      Emil was born July 1, 1906 to Charles and Anna Tonne on a farm near Glen Elder. He remained on the family farm until he married Vera Deloria Helvey on Oct. 23, 1935. They resided on a farm near Glen Elder until 1955 when they moved to Lincoln.
      Emil farmed and did custom harvesting in the Lincoln community until his retirement. In August of 1986, Emil moved to Tipton. Emil was preceded in death by brothers, Louis and Adolph, and by his wife, Deloria, in 1979. He is survived by one sister, Minnie Wiles of Beloit; two sons, Ronald of Salina and Larry, rural Beloit; seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
      Emil was baptized and confirmed in the Tipton Lutheran Church as a child and remained in that faith throughout his life.
      Emil will be remembered as a kind, friendly, hardworking man who was always willing to help others. Although quiet mannered, he enjoyed competition such as feats of strength and fast cars in his younger years...to horseshoes later in life. He throughly enjoyed watching his sons and later his grandchildren in athletic competition and other activities.
      Emil never lost his keen sense of humor and mischievous nature. He was liked by all and loved by many. He will be greatly missed, especially by those who called him "brother," "Dad," "Uncle" and "Grandpa."
