C. Rosenberger Found Dead in His Bath Room
Charles Rosenberger died suddenly with a heart attack Monday night at his home on Third Avenue North.
Mr. Rosenberger suffered a stroke about two years ago. He has been in failing health since that time but on the day of his death there was no indication his condition was any more serious.
In the night he went to the bath room where he was found dead by his wife. Medical attention was called as were some of the neighbors who removed him to the bedroom.
Born in Germany
Mr. Rosenberger came to this country from Germany in 1881 at the age of 16 and settled in Clinton county. In 1892 he moved to Emmet county and farmed. He was a prosperous farmer and while engaged in that occupation he attended strictly to farming which made him successful.
About ten years ago he moved to Estherville and has resided here, retiring completely from farm work.
He is survived by his wife and two sons, A.B. Rosenberger, another prosperous farmer of the county, and Paul Rosenberger of Hollywood, Calif.
The funeral services were held this afternoon at 2 o’clock at the home and 2:30 p.m. at the Methodist Episcopal church, Rev. F. W. Ortmeyer officiating. Interment was in the East Side Cemetery. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, August 11, 1938)
