Reinbeck Pioneer Dead
Funeral services for August Goettsch, 77, who died at Reinbeck Monday morning, were held at the family home Wednesday afternoon. Rev. George E. Shear, Mt. Vernon, officiated.
Death came suddenly at 10:30 when the pioneer resident dropped dead in his garden while at work. The cause was given as high blood pressure.
Eighteen years ago Mr. Goettsch retired from his farm nearby and moved to Reinbeck. Two years ago his wife died. Surviving are the children: Henry Goettsch, Lincoln, Iowa; Mrs. Agnes Mason, Marshalltown, and Mrs. Emma Anderson, Waterloo.
