Early Grundy Resident Dead
Ubbe Jutting died at his home in Wellsburg early Sunday morning following a long illness with nephritis and other complications. Funeral services are being held at the Engelke church in German township today, with the local pastor, Rev. F. W. Engelke, officiating.
Mr. Jutting was one of the early residents of Grundy county. He came here from Stephenson county, Illinois, fifty-eight years ago and resided here continually up to the time of his death. The old family home was on a farm in the northwest corner of Shiloh township where Mr. Jutting resided until twelve years ago, when he and his wife moved to Wellsburg.
Mr. Jutting was born in Germany 74 years ago and came to this country when he was a young man. He was a thrifty and successful farmer, a good neighbor and a fine citizen. His passing is mourned by the many in this section who learned to know him well during his long residence here.
The deceased is survived by his wife and four children. The children are Mrs. Folkert Kuper and Elizabeth and two sons, John and Will, who are living on the home place. Another daughter, Mrs. Conrad Baumann, died at her home in Minnesota last spring.
