Mrs. Hy. Klunder Dies at Chas. City

Mrs. Henry Klunder, a long time resident of Grundy county, died last Friday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Herman Terbeck at Charles City. She had been in failing health for some time due to high blood pressure and complications. She was 81 years old.

The body was brought to the Engelkes funeral home in Grundy Center. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Bethany Presbyterian church. The services were conducted by Rev. F. J. Langenberg. Burial was by the side of her first husband in the cemetery at Alice.

Mrs. Jennie Klunder, the daughter of John and Agnes Muhring, was born May 21, 1868, in Wiener, Germany. Her father and two of the children came to America first, and a few years later the mother and the other three children followed. Mrs. Klunder was 13 years of age when she came to America to live on a farm with the family in the southwest part of Grundy County.

On Feb. 21, 1884, she was united in marriage with Heiko Isder. The young couple made their home on a farm 6 miles northeast of Conrad.

Her husband, Heiko Isder, died March 24, 1902, and several years later she was united in marriage with Henry Klunder. For 2 years Mr. and Mrs. Klunder lived at Fern and then bought and moved to the home place northeast of Conrad.

In 1918 Mr. and Mrs. Klunder came to Grundy Center to live in a house purchased in the western part of the town. After the death of Mr. Klunder on July 24, 1926, Mrs. Klunder continued to live in her home until about 6 years ago when she sold the house and then lived with her children, going from one to the other for several years.

During the last few years the departed spent most of her time with her daughter, Mrs. Herman Turbeck of Charles City, and where she died on Friday, Sept. 30th, after a lingering illness of several years. She reached the age of 81 years, 4 months and 9 days.

In her departure she leaves the following children: Mrs. Henry Holl of Estherville; Mrs. Herman Terbeck of Charles City; John Isder of Maple Hill; Mrs. Geo. Reil of Grundy Center and Mrs. Elmer Whitmire of Modesta, California; three sisters, Mrs. Ed Kluver and Mrs. Chris Boike of Grundy Center and Mrs. Simon Hovinga of Webb, Iowa; one brother, Peter Muhring of Grundy Center; also, 18 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. One daughter died in infancy.
