Mr. Bunger, son of Coert and Taalke Bunger, was born July 3, 1868 near Baileyville, Illinois. When less than one year old he came with his parents to Iowa and lived for the rest of his life in Grundy County.
On September 6, 1892 he was united in marriage to Gertie Eiten. They made their home through the years on different farms in Shiloh township. Their union was blessed with five children, two sons and three daughters. In 1942 they were privileged to celebrate their Golden Wedding anniversary.
Mrs. Bunger died July 11, 1947, and one daughter, Mrs. Ben Eiten (Gertie), passed away in May, 1954. Three brothers and two sisters also preceded him in death.
Mr. Bunger had been for several years an attendant and member of the First Christian Reformed Church. Through his life he enjoyed remarkable health. The last four years he had spent with Mr. and Mrs. John Reents. During late summer his health began to decline gradually, but until quite recently he was still able to get up. He passed away quietly, even as he had lived, on November 28 at the age of 92 years, four months and 25 days.
Surviving him are two daughters, Mrs. John Reents (Tillie), Mrs. Odie H. Nederhoff (Eita), and two sons, Coert and Lambert, all living in or around Wellsburg. He is also survived by three brothers, John, Menno and Tielko, and one sister, Mrs. Joe Nederhoff; eight grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren, as well as step-grandchildren.
