Jeppe J. Schultz, Dike Banker, Dies At Waterloo

End Came Quite Suddenly At Hospital Early Tuesday Morning

In Dike Bank 20 Years

Was Associated With Farmers Savings Bank Since Its Organization

Jeppe J. Schultz, cashier of the Farmers Savings Bank at Dike, died at St. Frances Hospital in Waterloo at an early hour Tuesday morning. The remains were taken to the home at Dike, where funeral services will be held.

Mr. Schultz was a resident of Dike since the town was founded. He was associated with the Farmers Savings Bank since its organization some twenty-two years ago. He was not in active service for a time in the bank owing to poor health, but since the death of the bank's president, C. E. Thomas, a few years ago, he served actively as cashier. He was one of the leading citizens of the town and his death is much regretted by the many in Dike and vicinity who learned to know him intimately. Mr. Schultz was about fifty years old.

The Register's correspondent sends us the following account of Mr. Schultz:
Friends in Dike were greatly shocked Tuesday morning to learn of the death of Jeppe Schultz, which occurred at two-thirty o'clock that morning at a Waterloo hospital, where he had been taken Saturday. His death was caused from hemorrhages with which he had suffered for years, also heart trouble. Mr. Schultz had suffered a great deal the past several years, having undergone several blood transfusions in Chicago a year or two ago, and had been under a doctor's care the greater share of the time, but none could give relief. He seemed to realize that this last sickness was to prove fatal, and was conscious almost to the last, talking with his family and bidding all goodbye. Mr. Schultz was cashier of the Farmers Savings Bank at Dike, a position he had held for many years. He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, two brothers and two sisters. Funeral services had not been made at this writing, but will probably be held from the M.E. church.

The funeral services for the late Jeppe J. Schultz, Dike banker, were held at the Methodist church at Dike last Friday afternoon. They were conducted by the local pastor, Rev. Chamberlin.

Interment was not made until the brother's arrival shortly after the completion of the services at the church.

Mr. Schultz was 46 years of age at the time of his death and had held the position of cashier of the Farmers Savings Bank ever since that bank was organized and has in this manner become acquainted with practically everyone in this part of the county. He has made a host of friends and will be sadly missed, not only in his home, but in the business circles as well.

He was married to 1913 to Miss Tillie Tobias, who with three brothers, Johnnie and Walter of Strathmore, Wis., J., of Wayne, Canada, Mrs. Jennie Holm of Campbell River, British Columbia and Mrs. Thorwald Petersen, of Dike, survive to mourn his loss.

Jeppe Schultz, son of John and Cena Schultz, was born on a farm in Sleisvig, Germany, March 3, 1878. When he was twelve years of age he came with his parents to this country, arriving at Cedar Falls May 28, 1890. For many years the family resided on a farm near Fredsville. He attended the home school and later was a student for several terms at the I.S.T.C. at Cedar Falls. in 1900 he graduated from a commercial course at the Palmer Business School at Cedar Rapids, and at once obtained a position with the Farmers Savings Bank, known then as the First National Bank of Dike. He gradually worked his way up from a twelve dollar a month position to that of cashier. He assisted in the reorganization of this bank in 1909.

He was united in marriage to Miss Tillie Tobias July 8, 1913, and established a home in Dike.

Mr. Schultz was actively engaged in the work of the bank, except when his health did not permit, until Saturday evening, Aug. 9. During that evening he became suddenly ill from an internal hemorrhage, and was at once taken to the Presbyterian hospital at Waterloo for treatment, where he died Tuesday morning, Aug. 12.

Early in life Mr. Schultz became a member of the Danish Lutheran church at Fredsville. He was associated with both the Danish Brotherhood and the Odd Fellows Lodge.

His keen appreciation of music and his love for flowers were foremost among his characteristics. He aided in the organization of the Dike bank, and was a active member to the end.

Those surviving are his wife, three brothers and two sisters.

Funeral services were conducted at the residence and at the Dike Methodist church Friday, Aug. 15, about 4 p.m., by Rev. A. B. Chamberlin and Rev. C. Stockholm. Interment was made at the Dike Cemetery.

He is not dead;
He's just gone away
Waiting for you and me
On the Judgement Day.
