Obituary of Herman Eberhardt
Herman Eberhardt, of Beaman, passed away at the home of his brother J. F. Eberhardt, Thursday morning, Dec. 22, 1926, at 9 o'clock, with heart trouble. While it was known to the family and many friends of Mr. Eberhardt that his health was in a very weakened condition, it had been hoped that with the splendid care and excellent medical aid he was receiving that his life might be spared to his family, and when the announcement of his sudden passing away was received among friends the news proved almost unbelievable.
Herman Eberhardt had lived to Beaman since 1917 and he was loved and respected by a large circle of true and admiring friends who can hardly be brought to realize that his kind smile and pleasing manner will be known no more. He always endeavored to be of assistance to those who needed friends or help and many are the deeds of kindness that friends are now recalling to the honor of the well spent years he was privileged to live.
Herman Eberhardt was the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Eberhardt of Beaman, Iowa, having been born at that place Nov. 17, 1883. He received his education at Beaman and grew to manhood there. During the year of 1917, in December, he moved to town with his brother, J. F. Eberhardt and family, and they were engaged in the pool and billiard business until 1922.
Herman Eberhardt had not been ailing seriously with heart trouble until the last three months. He fully realized that his time had come and passed to the great beyond courageously and bravely, knowing full well that a bright future awaited him, for he died as he had lived at all times, a man. No stronger tribute can be paid the departed than to mention that all who really knew him were his friends. No monument can be erected as beautiful as the friendship of the masses he had himself built.
He had held membership in the I.O.O.F. order for a number of years and was also a member of the Muscovites.
The death of this excellent man and neighbor will be regretted by a large concourse of true friends. He was a man held in high esteem by a large circle of admiring friends who will extend their sincere sympathy to the Eberhardt family in the sorrow that has entered their home and robbed them of a dear one.
Besides leaving to mourn this sad loss his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Eberhardt, Sr., he leaves four brothers and four sisters: Henry, William and Mrs. Chas. Moore, of Beaman; Fred, of Minnesota Lake, Minn.; Charles of Osceola, Iowa; Pauline Eimers, of Charles City, Ia.; Millie Jenisen, of Fort Dodge, Iowa; and Ella Miller, of Philadelphia, Pa. All except the latter were at the bedside at the last. Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Mickleson, of Alpha, and Wm. Moore of Jackson were here at his bedside.
The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Evangelical Church of Peace, Rev. Wm. Schultz officiating. He was laid to rest in the Oak Grove cemetery. Those acting as pall bearers were Ed. Putz, John Bair, Henry Greenwald, B. A. Kaus, Ralph Kauffman and R. V. Townshend.
The out-of-town relatives and friends who attended the funeral were: Henry and Will Eberhardt and Mrs. Charles Moore, of Beaman; Chas. Eberhardt and wife of Osceola; Mrs. Millie Jenison of Fort Dodge; Mrs. Heica Eimers of Charles City; Henry Eimers of Spencer; Mr. and Mrs. George Pappas of Conrad; Mr. and Mrs. Jay Henson of Waterloo; Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Mikleson of Alpha, and Wm. Moore of Jackson, Minn.
