Mrs. Maie Pixler A Pioneer Resident, Passes Away Monday

Mrs. Maie Pixler, 81, for many years a resident of this community, passed away at the West Union hospital Monday morning at 6:45 o'clock after a lingering illness.

Funeral services are being held this afternoon at two o'clock in the Postville Community Presbyterian church, conducted by the Rev. G. Ukena of West Union. Interment will be in the Postville cemetery.

Mrs. Pixler was born as Maie Eva Harmon at Viroqua, Wis., on July 15, 1864, and came to Iowa in her early 'teens. She was married to George W. Pixler of Postville on January 30, 1884, and to this union eight children were born. Of these James, Ina (Mrs. H. C. Schultz), Ernest and Lester, as well as her husband, preceded her in death. The four surviving children are Roy Pixler of Postville, Ralph Pixler of West Union, George Pixler of Dubuque and Gerald Pixler of Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.

Also surviving are two brothers and one sister, P. V. Harmon of Inglewood, Calif., V. P. Harmon of San Diego, Calif., and Mrs. Frank Fay of Clermont; nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Pixler spent the first 45 years of her married life on the farm in Grand Meadow township, south of Postville, which Mr. Pixler purchased when they were married. Four years she spent at Minneapolis and then moved to Postville where she resided until failing health would not permit her to live alone. She lived one year with her son, Gerald, and for the past two and a half years with her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Pixler, at West Union.
