  Obituary - Anton A. Liska Jr.- Courtesy of Frank - Anton Liska, 82, a highly esteemed and well know pioneer resident of the Town of Greenwood, passed away Monday afternoo, July 8, 1957 at his farm home in that township.  He had been an invalid for about seven years and during the last few weeks his condition had been critical.  Funeral services were held at the Wood Lutheran Church in the Town of Greenwood, at two o'clock, last Thursday afternoon, July 11th.  The Reverend Am. M. Rusten of Black River Falls, former pastor of the Wood Lutheran Church, officiated at the rites.  Burial was in the Champion Vally Cemetery.  Anton A. Liska, son of Anton Liska Sr. and Marie Himmer Liska, was born August 5, 1874 near Fort Dodge, Iowa.  When he was eight years old the Liska family moved to Vernon County, Wisconsin and established their home on a farm in the town of Greenwood.  In that community he attended teh Greenwood school and grew to young manhood.  Sixty years ago Mr. Liska purchased the farm in eastern Greenwood township where he continued to reside until the time of his death.  Mr. Liska was married, July 3, 1899 to Miss Anna Janechek, daughter of Wencil Janechek who were also pioneer residents of the Town of Greenwood.  The marriage ceremony took place at Hillsboro. Mr. and Mrs. Liska established their home on his farm on Debello Ridge in Greenwood Towhship where they continued to reside during their lifetime and where for many years they were influential leaders in many activities that promoted the progress and welfare of the community.  Mrs. Liska passed away December 28, 1955.  Surviving Mr. Liska are two daughters, Laura (Mrs. Frank Kosa of Wonewoc) and Elsie (Mrs. A.T. Nunes of Wonewoc), one grand daughter Beverly (Mrs. William Butler) three great grand daughters, one brother, Arthur and one nephew, Harry Snorek, both of whom grew to adulthood in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Liska, other relatives and many friends.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Mrs. Annie Liska; his parents, Mr. and Mrms.
