Mrs. Meyer Buried Saturday
The funeral services for the late Mrs. Arend Meyer were held last Saturday afternoon. The services were conducted by Rev. Landsiedel, who returned from Wisconsin where he was at the bedside of a sick relative when he was advised of the death of Mrs. Meyer. The services were held in the church at Wellsburg. Every seat in the large church was occupied and there were some who were not able to get in. It is believed there were about eight hundred people at the church service.
The remains were laid to rest in the cemetery at Drake's church. The deceased was a member of Drake's church before the family moved to Wellsburg.
Mrs. Meyer was born in Germany, May 3, 1849, and was 76 years, 8 months and 10 days old at the time of her passing.
She was a pioneer resident of this section, coming to Colfax township about fifty-five years ago.
She leaves her husband and a family of grown children, three sons: Andrew, Peter and John, all of Colfax township, and five daughters: Mrs. A. J. Kruse, of Wellsburg; Mrs. Cornelius Haack, of Stout, Iowa; Mrs. Geo. A. Geerdes, of Grundy Center; Mrs. George Lindaman and Mrs. Herman Haack, of Wellsburg.
She leaves three brothers: George P. Meyer, of Fainbury, Neb.; H. P. Meyer, of Willow Lake, S.D.; and John P. Meyer, of Colfax township.
Besides these she leaves twenty-three grandchildren.
Mrs. Meyer was well known to most of the older residents of this community, and possessed the esteem and respect of all, being faithful to all her duties as a true Christian woman, attending carefully to the care and training of her large family of stalwart sons and buxom daughters. She was a force for good in her community and leaves a record of duties well done to grace her memory.
