Mrs. Ed. Kluver Passes Away
Death Came to Relieve Suffering Saturday Evening
Mrs. Ed. Kluver passed away at her home in this city on Saturday evening, February 2nd, 1924, after about six weeks' sickness. Her illness started about six weeks ago when she suffered a stroke of paralysis which later developed into a blood-clot on the brain for which she was unable to obtain relief, although everything possible was done for her by the best medical skill and loving hands. She was taken to Marshalltown a few weeks ago in the hopes that she might obtain relief there, but without success.
Mrs. Dena Kluver, nee Muhring, was born April 4th, 1864, in Bunde, Ostfriesland, Germany, and came to America with her parents in March, 1881, locating in Grundy county.
She was married to Ed. Kluver in 1883, and to this union four daughters and one son were born.
With the exception of about nine years in Clay county and one year in Floyd county, Grundy county has been her home, and for the past nine years she has lived in this city. At the time of her death she was aged 59 years, 9 months and 28 days.
Mrs. Kluver was a woman highly respected by all who knew her. She was a kind and loving wife and mother, a splendid neighbor, and she leaves to mourn her death besides the husband, her five children, namely: Mrs. Henry Luitjens, Mrs. Richard Kent, Mrs. Jess Kitner, Henry Kluver and Grace, the latter at home. The other children all live in this city, or near vicinity. There are also seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild, and three sisters and one brother: Mrs. Chris Boike and Mrs. Henry Klunder, both of this city, Mrs. Simon Hovanga, of Webb, Iowa, and Peter Muhring, of this city, besides a number of other relatives and a host of friends.
Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon from the German Presbyterian church, Rev. H. F. Sinning, pastor of that church, officiating. Interment was in the cemetery west of town.
