Charles J. Rademacher, 80 years old, a retired farmer and resident in Sioux City and Plymouth county for 52 years, died at 3:30 o'clock Wednesday morning at his home in the Shepard flats, Twelfth and Pierce streets, Sioux City. Death resulted from injuries received in a fall on icy steps December 20, which confined him to his bed ever since. The day he died was the fifty-fourth anniversary of his marriage.
Mr. Rademacher was born in Germany in 1839. He came to the United States at the age of 17 with his parents, who settled on a farm in eastern Iowa. He served during the Civil war, from 1862 to 1865 with Company D of the 27th Iowa infantry. He was married in 1866 to Miss Mary Lambke, in Clayton county, Iowa.
Mr. and Mrs. Rademacher came to western Iowa 52 years ago. They made their home on a farm in Plymouth county until their retirement about 20 years ago when they moved to Sioux City. He was an active member of the Odd Fellows lodge, joining more than 50 years ago.
He is survived by his wife and three daughters, Mrs. Morton Howard and Mrs. W.W. Price, of Sioux City, and Mrs. Charles J. Bell, of Chicago.
The funeral will be held this afternoon from his late residence and the interment will be made in Graceland Park cemetery. The Odd Fellows will have charge of the services.
