August Pieper Dies at Iowa City Home

Lifelong friends in this vicinity were saddened to learn of the death of August Pieper which occurred at his home in Iowa City at 9:30 New Years night. The infirmities of age were felt most keenly in his heart which troubled him the past year and caused his demise.

A son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Pieper he was born on a farm east of Waukon Nov. 4, 1858. At the age of four years his parents moved to the farm in Ludlow township near the No. 1 school house where he grew to manhood and on Dec. 10, 1885 was united in marriage with Miss Anna Bauercamper, member of a pioneer family in that township. They engaged in farming on the old homestead until 1914, when the family moved to Iowa City where three of their children were attending the university.

Surviving are the widow and six children, namely: Representative-elect E. F. Pieper, Waukon; Mrs. Jesse Beer and Miss Ruth Pieper, Iowa City; Mrs. Lawrence Michelson, Wakpala, SD; Carl Pieper, Chicago, and Mrs. John Boyles of Oxnard, Calif, and seven grandchildren. A brother and three sisters preceded him in death, viz: Fred Pieper, Mrs. Chris. Schafer, Mrs. Fred Snitker and Mrs. Albert Winter.

Funeral services were held in Iowa City Tuesday and the remains were then brought to Waukon the following morning for burial in Zalmona Presbyterian cemetery in Ludlow preceded by services in that church of which he was a member, conducted by Rev. E. H. Bushman. The pall bearers were Ralph and Martin Bauercamper, Amos Lemme, Oliver Iriving and Richard Snitker.
