Grand Mounds, Ia. July 6 - A pall of gloom was cast over the entire community when on last Friday morning our people learned of the death of Mrs. Minnie Stier at the Grand Central hotel. She had been ill for nine weeks with typhoid pneumonia and although her death was not unexpected it came as a shock to all.
The deceased was born near here forty-eight years ago and had lived her entire life in this locality. She was married to her husband, William Stier twenty-nine years ago, he having preceded her in death fourteen years. For twenty-five years she had been affiliated with the business interests of Grand Mound, having conducted the hotel for that time. She was a lady of many rare traits of character which endeared her to numberless friends.
Surviving are three sons and one daughter who are, Bert of Manchester, Lee, veterinary surgeon of LaMont, and Harry and Malinda at home. She also leaves five sisters and one brother, Mrs. Charles Keiner, Mrs. Thomas. Hollister and Miss Nettie Witt of Omaha, Mrs. John Douglas of Elkhorn, Neb., Mrs. Ida Witt living here, and William Witt of Davenport.
The funeral services were conducted at the late home by N. L. Godfrey of Davenport and at the Evergreen cemetery services were conducted by the Rebakah lodge of which deceased was a member. The funeral was in charge of Undertaker J. W. Kelly and was very largely attended by relatives and friends who extend to the sorrowing family heartfelt sympathy. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful which bespeak the high esteem in which she was held.
The pallbearers were Mrs. George Smith, Mrs. George Cook, Miss Bird Ahlff, Mrs. Adam Mohr, Mrs. Mary Goettch and Mrs. Ed Rock, all members of the Rebekah lodge.
Those present at funeral from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. Aug Witt of Ryan, Ia., J. M. Geeche and wife, Mrs. J. C. Otto, Mrs. Wm. Otto, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Bather and daughter, Art Schulheis and family of Clinton, Charles Stier of McCausland, Henry Blohm and family of Welton, Henry Hilbert and family of Petersville, William Kramer and family of Lost Nation.
