Mr. Muller died in his sleep sometime early Monday morning at his home in Wellsburg. He had been in reasonable good health and active despite his advanced age.

He married Gertie Saathoff on October 4, 1899, and the couple resided on what is known as the Muller "home place" 3 1/2 miles northwest of Wellsburg until they retired and moved to town on Feb. 5, 1952.
Surviving are the widow; one son, Chris Muller Jr., who lives on the home place; one daughter, Rena, Mrs. Lawrence Bolhuis, Cedar Falls; six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents; one daughter, Mary, Mrs. John Freese, who passed away in April, 1928; two sons in infancy; and one brother, Dick Muller.
