Funeral Services for Ed Dingel Last Friday
Funeral services for Eddie Dingel, who passed away on Monday morning, Oct. 20, at the University hospital in Iowa City, from injuries received in an accident at Dike, on the Friday night previous, were conducted at the Presbyterian church in Morrison on Friday afternoon at two o'clock by Rev. Norman Frerking, pastor of the church, and were very largely attended.
Mrs. Clyde Hartley and Mrs. Menne Bakker, accompanied by Mrs. Gleo Mooty at the piano sang three beautiful hymns, "He Knows It All," "Alone" and "Going Down the Valley." The floral tributes which were very numerous and beautiful, were in charge of Beryl Gale, Will Schmoranc and George Kaufman. Will Hanisch was in charge of transportation. Casket bearers were Robert Stevens, Phillip McGaw, Jimmie Regan, Adolph Folkerts, John Richmond and Russell Morrison. Interment was made in the Washington township cemetery, just south of town.
Eddie was the second son and third child of John and Reka Sitters Dingel and was born at Holland, Iowa, on February 12, 1918, during the first World War. In the month of March 1924, the family purchased a home and removed to Morrison, where they have since resided. In addition to his parents, he is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Bud Hummel and Mrs. Frank Smith of Morrison, two brothers, Henry, at home, and Carl, who was recently inducted into the U.S. Army and who is stationed at San Diego, Cal. The funeral services were delayed, pending his arrival.
Relatives and friends from out of town, who were in attendance at the services were Mr. and Mrs. Eldo Dodema, Mrs. Heiko Dodema, Mrs. Lizzie DeVries and son Ralph, of Dike; Mrs. Henry Dingel of Stout; and Mrs. Lizzie Meester, Mrs. Minnie Schradermeier and Mrs. Con Dirks of Holland. An uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Sitters of St. Paul, were here Tuesday and Wednesday, but on account of business reasons, could not remain for the services on Friday.
