Elkader Register, Thur., 25 Feb. 1926. Guttenberg column.

Mrs. Sophia Geuder, one of this community's early settlers and most worthy mothers, passed away at her home in Guttenberg on last Friday morning, February 19, 1926, at 1:30 o'clock, after a short illness with double pneumonia, and at the age of sixty-nine years, two months and seven days. Sophia Lundt was born in Mecklenburg, Germany, on December 12, 1856, later immigrating to the United States with her parents and settling in Jefferson township, Clayton county, Iowa. On April 7, 1877, she was married at Guttenberg, Iowa, to Mr. Leonard Geuder, who preceded her in death on August 17, 1907. One son, John, also preceded the mother in death in 1892. All that loving hands could do and medical aid suggest was done for her to save her life, but all failed when the Angel of Death called her to the other world where there is no suffering, but joy and happiness forever. Mrs. Geuder was a faithful member of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran church and the Ladies' Aid society of that church in this city and was a true Christian woman in every respect. She was a kind and loving mother, sister and friend, one who was ever ready with heart and hand to do acts of kindness for her family and friends, and her memories will be forever cherished by all who knew her. Her death is deeply mourned by five daughters, Mrs. Tillie Henrich, Mrs. Lena Fritz and Mrs. Emma Vondar Hamm, all of Ireton, Iowa, Miss Marguerite Geuder of Tipton, Iowa, and Miss Clara Geuder of Guttenberg; three sons, Henry, William and Benjamin, all of Guttenberg; fifteen grandchildren; two brothers, William Lundt of Osterdock and Fred Lundt of Postville; and numerous other relatives and friends by whom she will be sadly missed. Funeral services were held at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran church in this city on Monday afternoon, Rev. Emil Lehne officiating. The body was laid to rest in the city cemetery. The funeral was largely attended by relatives and friends from far and near, which showed that deceased was held in the highest esteem by all who knew her.
