J. O. Nederhoff Victim of Heart Attack Saturday

J. O. Nederhoff was fatally stricken with a heart attack late Saturday afternoon to become Wellsburg's fourth death of the past week.

The others were Gerald Hook on Monday, Mrs. C. O. Nederhoff and Charles Etjen, who both succumbed Thursday.

He had attended the funeral of his sister-in-law, Mrs. Carl Nederhoff on Saturday. Later that afternoon he went to pick up his mail, then got back into his car and drove north on main street to the Ross & Purvis corner, then turned east.

Dagan Krull, who works for Henry Hippen said he was standing in the driveway of the station when Mr. Nederhoff came to the stop sign on the corner between the Henry and Herman Hippen stations. Krull said he stopped, then the car lurched ahead and smashed into a power pole in front of the Henry Weitkamp residence. Both Krull and Vernon Penning ran to Mr. Nederhoff's aid, and Dr. Meyer was called. But he was dead by the time the doctor arrived. Death was caused by a heart attack.

Funeral services for J. O. Nederhoff were held at 1 p.m. Thursday at the home and later in the Wellsburg Reformed Church, Rev. G. C. Poppen in charge. Burial was in the church cemetery.

Music was furnished by a men's quartet, Eugene Ruter, Marvin Stahl, Alle Murra and Irwin Abels with Marcella Neessen organist.

Mrs. Margaret Eygabroad and Miss Jessie Eekhoff were flower attendants. Pallbearers were Odie H. Nederhoff, Coert C. Nederhoff, Edward O. Nederhoff, Oldig Haupt, Oldig H. Bunger and Odie W. Meyer.


Mr. Nederhoff, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Oldig Nederhoff, was born in Shiloh township, Grundy county, August 30, 1874. He lived in that vicinity all his life.

June 16, 1904, he was united in marriage to Miss Cuna Bunger, and they began to farm southwest of Wellsburg where they lived until June 8, 1945, when they moved to their present home in Wellsburg. They were blessed with 7 children, all of whom are living.

The deceased made confession of his faith in the First Christian Reformed church west of Wellsburg, and was received into the fellowship of the Wellsburg Reformed Church on July 5, 1936, by transfer of his membership. He was a faithful member and loved to attend the house of God, and dearly loved his Lord and Savior.

On June 16, 1954, Mr. and Mrs. Nederhoff were privileged to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. This was a great joy to all the family.

Mr. Nederhoff leaves to mourn: his wife; 7 children; Oldig J. Nederhoff, Coert J. Nederhoff, Gratus J. Nederhoff, Tillie (Mrs. Edward H. Harms), Diana J. Nederhoff, Hinreka J. Nederhoff, and Carl L. Nederhoff, all of Wellsburg; 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Other survivors are one brother, O. O. Nederhoff, and two sisters, Mrs. Harm C. Bunger and Mrs. M. C. Bunger, and a host of relatives and friends.

Those who preceded him in death were three brothers, Carl O. Nederhoff, Henry O. Nederhoff, Daniel O. Nederhoff; 2 sisters, Mrs. Obbo Haupt and Mrs. W. H. Meyer, and one half-sister, Mrs. Remmer Sietsema.
