Eilt Stoppelmoor Dies In Hospital
Eilt Stoppelmoor, one of the oldest residents of Wellsburg, died at the Iowa Falls hospital Monday morning. He had been in failing health the past few months. His condition became so serious the latter part of the week that he was removed to the hospital at Iowa Falls. He was 89 years old.
