After an illness of more than a year William E. Muller passed away at his home, four miles northeast of Ackley, on Saturday evening, March 8, 1930. He was born Dec. 12, 1886, southeast of Ackley in Grundy county, thus reaching an age of 43 years, 2 months and 24 days.
In June, 1912, he was united in marriage to Miss Anna R. Harken. Their home was blessed with three daughters.
More than a year ago, he began to complain about gastric trouble and in the course of time, it became worse, finally developing into cancer. Competent medical aid was sought, but no hope for recovery could be given, and on Saturday evening, Mar. 8, the end came quietly, tho more quickly than had been expected.
He was confirmed in St. John's Evangelical Church at Ackley. Since 1914 he was a member at Westfriesland Presbyterian church, and its services he attended regularly as long as he could. We hope he has been translated into the glorious heavenly church.
There remain to mourn his early departure, his deeply grieved widow and three children: Henrietta, Anna and Wilma, his brothers, Aeilt of Dumont, John, Herman and Heiko of Ackley and his sisters, Mrs. Henry Osterland of Ackley and Maggie of Independence, besides many other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon, March 12 at 2 o'clock in the Westfriesland Presbyterian church conducted by pastor, Rev. Henry Johnson. Many friends had come to pay their last respect to the departed one. Interment was made in the cemetery adjoining the church.
