Peterka Beninga Bakker was born in the city of Emden, Germany, August 6, 1839, and died in Grundy county, Iowa, Aug. 23, 1902, aged 63 years and 17 days.
In the year of '74 she came to America and resided in Illinois where she was married to Harm W. Bakker who with two sons and two daughters are left to mourn the loss of a dear wife and loving mother.
They have been residents of Lincoln township for the past twenty years.
The deceased joined the Christian Reform church at the age of eighteen years and has ever been a faithful member and patiently waiting for Jesus to call her home. She had been a sufferer with that dread disease cancer for a year and a half. The best physicians were called but all help was of no avail.
Funeral services were held at the home and church Tuesday afternoon and the remains interred in the cemetery at Lincoln Center. The services were attended by a large number of friends and relatives who gathered to pay a last tribune of respect.
