Will J. Ammann Passed Away at His Home Saturday
Mr. Will J. Ammann passed away at his home Saturday afternoon, June 13, 1953 at 4:30. At the time of his passing he had attained the age of 62 years, 11 months, and 16 days. The immediate cause of death was a cerebral hemorrhage, having previously suffered a stroke on the 20th of May from which he never fully recovered.
He was born the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Ammann on June 27, 1890 on a farm six miles southwest of Ackley. He spent his entire life in this vicinity, working as a farmer. Since 1913 the First Christian Reformed Church of Wellsburg was his church home.
Bertha Frey became his bride on August 12, 1912. This marriage was blessed with the birth of one son, Edward. Mr. Ammann was forced to retire from an active farm life in the spring of 1949 when he was partially disabled by a stroke. In the fall of the same year he suffered another stroke which completely incapacitated him, confining him to a wheel-chair. Mr. and Mrs. Ammann then moved to Wellsburg where they continued to reside to the time of his death.
Surviving him are his beloved wife who devoted herself to caring for him during the period of his affliction; one son, Edward; two grandchildren, Robert and Pamela Ammann; one brother, A. H. Ammann of Wolverton, Minnesota; and two sisters, Louise (Mrs. Herman Pepperling) of Billings, Montana, and Amelia (Mrs. Henry Heitland) of Ackley, Iowa. Preceding him in death were his parents, and two brothers, Frank and John.
Funeral services were held Tuesday, June 16, 1953 at 1:00 p.m. in the home at later in the First Christian Reformed Church of Wellsburg. The Rev. Alfred Hannink officiated at the service. Burial was in the cemetery adjoining the church. Pallbearers were Gerald Bakker, Ben J. Geerdes, Gratus J. Geerdes, Will Janssen, Charles Kitzman, and Jans Mennenga.
