Mrs. August Pieper Former Ludlow Resident Dies In Chicago

Elmer F. Pieper received news Tuesday of the death of his mother, Mrs. August S. Pieper of Iowa City, who passed away at the home of her son Carl in Berwyn, a suburb of Chicago where she had resided the past several months. She had been an invalid for more than two years, her illness having affected her limbs which necessitated the use of a cane and confined her to home.

As Anna Bauercamper, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Bauercamper, she was born in Ludlow township May 5, 1865 and was nearing her 79th birthday. On December 10, 1885, she was married at her parental home to August Pieper and they settled down to home life on his farm in that township, where they resided for many years.

They became the parents of six children, all of whom are living and mourn the passing of a devoted mother, namely: E. F. Pieper, Waukon; Mrs. X. P. Boyles (Pearl), Centerville, Iowa; Carl, Chicago; Mrs. Lawrence Mickleson (Lillian), Minneapolis; Mrs. Cecil Munson (Ruth), Whiting, Iowa and Mrs. Jess Beer (Selma), Iowa City.

In 1914 the family moved to Iowa City and there Mr. Pieperís death occurred on January 1, 1935.

There are also three brothers and a sister; Charles Bauercamper, Burlington; Julius and David, farmers near Waukon, and Mrs. Mary Sanderman of Cozad, Nebraska and seven grandchildren.

The remains arrived this morning from Chicago accompanied by her son Carl. They will repose at the Martin funeral home until Friday afternoon when services will be held at Zalmona Presbyterian church in Ludlow. Burial will be in the adjoining cemetery.
