Mrs. Angeline Neymeyer was born at Aurich, Germany, Nov. 16th, 1858. She came to this country with her parents in 1874. After spending several years in this country she was united in marriage to Jacob Neymeyer, spending all of their married life farming in the neighborhood of Ackley, Iowa.
The union was blessed with 13 children, four of whom preceded their mother in death. While they were still living on the farm, 32 years ago, Mrs. Neymeyer also lost her husband in death. She continued living on the farm for a number of years, coming to Aplington 26 years ago. When her daughter was married to Riekus Brower, she requested them to come and live with her, thus the last 23 years of her life were spent with her daughter and family. In the providence of God it was a wise choice on her part to request the Browers to come and live with her since so many of those years were spent in weakness and frailty of body. She made confession of her faith in the Westfriesland church many years ago, and in 1913 by letter she joined the Aplington Reformed church and to her confession she remained true.
During the last weeks of her life she suffered considerably due to cancer. She found great comfort in the word of God and spiritual songs. She suffered patiently, graciously accepting every act of kindness and helpfulness bestowed upon her during her illness. She waited for the Lord to come and receive her into His heavenly mansions. She passed on to her eternal reward March 7, 1947, attaining the age of 88 years, 3 months and 23 days.
She leaves to mourn her departure her children: Harm of Davis, South Dakota; Joe of Parkersburg; John of Ackley; Henry of Austinville; Burt of Geneva; Mrs. Dick Roelfs of Iowa Falls; Mrs. Corneall Frerichs of Austinville; Mrs. Fred Frerichs of Ackley and Mrs. Riekus Brower of Aplington; 52 grandchildren; 51 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren, and besides these many other relatives and friends. May God graciously comfort the bereaved.
Funeral services were held March 10, 1947 at 1 p.m. at the house and at the Aplington Reformed church; committal services were at the West Friesland Presbyterian church cemetery. Six grandsons acted as pallbearers. Rev. P. Eekhoff and Rev. P. Koenen officiated.
