Obituary of John Druck
John Druck was born in York county, Penn., in 1820, and died in Grundy Center, on Thursday, October 16, at 9:45 o'clock, a.m.
He was married on February 11, 1851 to Sarah Fydol. Seven children were born to them, four of whom survive their father, Samuel B. of this city, Wm. F. and John E. of Monroe, Wis., Mrs. Minerva G. Jones of Pollock, S.D. He became a resident of St. Joe county, Mich., in 1852, and resided there nine years. He spent one year in Ringgold county, Iowa, and then moved to Freeport, Ill. In 1866 he made his home in Green county, Wis., where he lived until 1894 when he became a resident of Grundy Center.
He was converted at the age of 16 and joined the Evangelical church near Lewistown, Penn. Soon after coming to Grundy Center he united with the Methodist Episcopal church, of which he was a faithful member until his death. His sickness began seven weeks ago with a stroke of paralysis from which time he gradually failed until death ended all. His death was painless and peaceful. He had a premonition of his death at the beginning of his illness, and talked of it as a matter of course. Notwithstanding the fact that his mind was affected by his affliction, he was clear and definite in his religious experience, and his desire to die and be at home with the Lord was the burden of his talk.
He was quiet and retiring in disposition, living a consistent, christian life daily and devoting himself as long as he was able to the care of his invalid wife. He leaves twelve grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, besides his devoted and invalid wife.
Funeral services were held from the residence Sunday afternoon and the remains placed in their last resting place in Rose Hill cemetery.
