Mrs. William Lindaman Dies Following Long Illness
Mrs. William Lindaman nee Rena DeVries passed away at her home in Wellsburg last Thursday, March 24th, at 4:30 p.m. after an eight months' illness in which she suffered from a chronic ailment of the head. She was taken ill July 20th of last year and suffered a stroke. At the time all hopes of recovery were given up, but with the best of medical care she rallied again and hopes for her recovery continued until she suffered another stroke.
Mrs. Lindaman was joined in wedlock to Wm. Lindaman on March 22, 1888. They shared 44 years of life's joys and sorrows together. To this union eight children were born, one having preceded the mother in death in infancy.
They lived on the farm all of their married life until they moved to town 15 years ago, where they had made their home since.
Mrs. Lindaman reached the age of 62 years, 8 months and 27 days. Left to survive are her husband, four sons, Ben of Lytton, Henry of Ackley, and John and William of Wellsburg, three daughters, Mrs. Fritz Frerichs of Stout and Mabel and Dena at home, and nine grandchildren beside an 84 year old mother, Mrs. Henry DeVries. She has five sisters who survive, Mrs. George Lindaman of Aplington, Mrs. Peter Kneppe of Aplington, Mrs. Hilko Cramer of Wellsburg, Mrs. Ben Lindaman of Wellsburg, Mrs. George Lindaman of Aplington and one brother, Ben DeVries of Aplington.
The funeral services were held from the house at one o'clock Monday and from the Wellsburg Reformed church at 1:30 with Rev. Wm. Landsiedel officiating, assisted by Rev. Engelke, who was her former pastor. Burial was made in the Wellsburg Reformed church cemetery.
