Surviving are a son, Charley, and a daughter, Susie, who lived with her; two sisters, Mrs. Heiko Miller and Mrs. Charley Schultz, and a brother, John Snittjer, all of Ackley.
Mrs. Fluth was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Menno and Simon Snittjer; a sister, Mrs. John Miller (Jennie); a sister who died in early childhood in Germany; and two half-sisters, Mrs. Martin Ross and Mrs. Fred Smith.
