And Had Lived All Of Her Life Here Among Her Friends And Her Neighbors
Mrs. John Loger, for almost four decades a member of the community south of Wellsburg, passed away at her home, on Thursday, August 31, the victim of pneumonia.
Mrs. Loger had spent all of her sixty-six years of life in the vicinity of Wellsburg, having been born and reared on a farm in German township and in her three score and six years of life had acquired a host of friends who will mourn her passing. She was a true daughter of those sturdy pioneers who carved an empire out of the prairies, she was a good wife, a kind mother, a pleasant neighbor and above all a true friend whose first thought was helpfulness and many were her deeds of kindness in time of trouble.
Funeral services were held on Monday afternoon at the home at 1:00 o'clock, and later at the First Christian Reformed church west of Wellsburg with the Rev. L. F. Voskuil in charge, assisted by Rev. J. G. Theilken of Aplington.
The concourse of friends who gathered to pay a final tribute to her was a large one, testifying to the respect in which she was held in the community in which she had spent her whole life.
The Misses Vernice Bakker, Annette Bakker, Etta Nederhoff and Nettie Ruter were the singers, choosing as their sons "Just As I Am," and "The Tender Love That A Father Has."
Interment was made in the cemetery west of Wellsburg, the Voskuil church cemetery.
Casket bearers were: Obo Haupt, A. C. Bunger, Jurgen Lutterman, Henry J. Lutterman, Trieno J. Riekena, and Adolph Deters.
Mrs. John Loger, nee Johanna Murra, was born on November 10, 1872, in German township, Grundy County, Iowa, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Weet Murra, and passed away at her home south of Wellsburg, on Thursday, August 31, 1939, at 11:45 a.m. She was 66 years, nine months and 21 days of age at the time of her death.
