Carl Lutterman Dies Following Long Illness
Chas. Lutterman, son of Juergen and Geske Lutterman, passed away at the home of his sister, Miss Tena Lutterman, Friday, May 13, at two o'clock p.m. at the age of 54 years, 4 months and 24 days.
He was born December 20th, 1877, on a farm in Shiloh township where he spent his youth and received his preliminary education in the rural school, and later he attended Ellsworth college in Iowa Falls for a short period. He was engaged in the teaching profession for some time and following this he prepared himself for a pharmacist in the College of Pharmacy at Des Moines. After completing his course he immediately established himself in this profession in the building which was procured by his brother Jake in later years.
He was beloved by friend and foe alike for his honest and frank disposition. He was a great lover of children.
After the death of his mother, he made his home with his sister Tena, who very faithfully cared for her while he was an invalid. Four years following the death of his mother, he suffered a stroke of apoplexy, on August 4th, 1924, which he never recovered. His whole right side became maimed. For eight years he was a patient sufferer.
It was on account of the late accident that he became confined to his bed. Everyone had hoped for his recovery but his old ailment beclouded his future which no doubt the providence of God so willed.
During his suffering the Lord prepared the deceased for his end so that he might enter the realm of eternal life.
It was his sincere desire a few days previous to his death that the Lord might relieve him from his intense suffering.
His departure was mourned by his seven brothers and three sisters, Harm, John, George, Henry, Albert and Jacob, all of Wellsburg, Eldridge of Antioch, Ill., Meta (Mrs. B. Hook), Tena of Wellsburg, Tillie, Mrs. H. Schwager of Blue Earth, Minn., and a great circle of relatives and friends who lament his untimely loss.
He took after the example of his true christian mother in diligently attending the house of God, which place is now again vacant. The church will preserve for him a blessed memory.
Funeral services were held from the English Reformed church at 2 o'clock with Rev. Landsiedel officiating, with burial in the Wellsburg cemetery.
Who knows how near by end may be?
Time speeds away and death come on.
How swiftly and how suddenly, may death be here and life be gone
My God for Jesus sake I pray
They peace may bless my dying day.
