Another Pioneer Lady Called
Mrs. Lammert Frerichs Passes Away Early Monday Morning
Hindertje Frerichs, nee Brower, was born Aug. 10, 1853, in Veen Hausen, Ostfriesland. At the age of ten years she came with her parents to America and lived for seven years near Forreston, Ill. In 1870 they moved to Grundy county, Iowa.
July 19, 1873, she was united in marriage to L. Frerichs, and they lived on their farm up until about fourteen years ago, when they returned from farm life and moved to Grundy Center. This union was blessed with seven children, four of whom died in infancy.
Mrs. Frerichs always was strong and healthy until about six or eight weeks ago when she came down with influenza from which she never recovered, and on last Thursday she was taken much worse and lingered until early Monday morning when the end came. She attained an age of 72 years, 10 months and 4 days.
She leaves to mourn her death her aged husband, two sons, Dick at home and Rev. John, at Chancellor, S.D.; one daughter, Mrs. Bertha Meester, Holland, Iowa; four grandchildren; three brothers, one sister, and many other relatives and friends.
The funeral will be held this afternoon (Thursday) at 1 o'clock, at the new Presbyterian church.
