John Reif is Dead.
Another old and respected citizen of this locality is no more, John Reif
having passed away at the home of his son William in this city on Tuesday
afternoon, at the age of almost 88 years. He had been in frail health for
some time and a fall sustained about a week ago caused a shock his feeble
constitution could not withstand. He was an honest and upright man, whose
many acquaintances and friends will learn with sorrow of his passing. He
was born in Saxony, Germany, March 19, 1826, and came to America in 1852.
In 1856 he bought a farm in Grand Meadow township, which remained his home
until a few years ago when he came to Postville to reside. He is survived
by three sons and three daughters all living in and near Postville. HIs
wife died some years ago. The funeral was held from the Lutheran church
yesterday afternoon. Interment in the Postville cemetery.
