H. F. Volberding was called to Reinbeck Saturday morning by the death of his brother, Louis, who was found dead that morning by his sister, when he did not answer her call for breakfast. He was in the best of health when he retired Friday evening, and it is thought that he died of apoplexy. With the exception of two years he had spent his entire life in this county. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the German Lutheran church in Reinbeck, of which church he was a member. Several from this locality attended the funeral.
