Heart Trouble Brings Sudden End For Harm Harms
Harm Harms died very suddenly at his home in Bristow, Iowa, last Thursday afternoon at two o'clock. While in the kitchen at his home he received a heart attack and died within a minute. His wife and some of the children were with him when he was stricken and they were able to lift him to a couch. Mr. Harms had suffered an attack of bronchitis late last fall from which he had not fully recovered. It was not known that he had a weak heart.
Mr. Harms was born in Germany 65 years ago. He came to this country with his folks when he was a child. The family located on a farm in Shiloh township. After Mr. Harms grew up he acquired two farms of his own in Shiloh township which he owned up to the time of his death. He and his family left Shiloh township last October to make their home in Bristow.
The remains were brought to the home of one of his daughters, Mrs. August Siefken, on Saturday. Short funeral services were held there on Monday and later at the Lutheran church of Shiloh township with Rev. Heinrich officiating. Burial was in the Lutheran church cemetery.
The wife and ten children survive. The children are Mrs. Paul Froeling and Paul Harms from Melvin, Iowa, Ebe Harms, Mrs. August Siefken, Mrs. Henry Aalfs, Edward, Harold and Minnie from Wellsburg and Mary and Otto, who have been at home. There are four brothers living, John, E. B., George and Will. Mrs. John Fink is the only surviving sister.
