John Urell Passes Sunday

John Urell, long time resident of this county, passed away Sunday in the St Anthony’s home at Dubuque where he had been cared for during the past two years when his health failed as a result of the infirmities of old age.

The deceased was the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Urell Sr., early settlers in this vicinity, and was born in Winneshiek county on April 29, 1857, lacking a few days of being 84 years old at the time of his death. He was educated in the rural schools of his home vicinity and spent the greater part of his life farming in Union Prairie twp. He always remained popular with his neighbors, operated his farm in an industrious manner, and held many friendships through his kindly, quiet and unassuming ways, remembered by all as a true gentleman.

Mr. Urell was never married and was the last member of the immediate family. He is survived by three nephews, Jas. Urell of Dubuque, Harry and Thomas of Union Prairie township.

The remains were brought to Waukon by Funeral Directors Pluemer and Hanson, and were taken to the farm home of Harry Urell.

Funeral services were held Tuesday morning at 9:30 o’clock in St. Patrick’s church at Waukon with the Rev. E. J. McDonald officiating. Burial was in Mt. Olivet cemetery and pall bearers were Robert Rea, James Marsden, Thomas Farley, Cyril Mellick, John Fahey and Charles Kilpatrick.
