Mrs. A. C. Bunger Dies Friday
Mrs. A. C. Bunger, who spent her lifetime in this community, died last Friday at the farm home in Shiloh township. She had been afflicted with pernicious anemia for some time and heart trouble. Her condition became quite serious last Monday and she was confined to her bed from that time until the end came on Friday. Her death takes from this community one of its oldest residents and one who was held in high regard by all who knew her. During most of her active lifetime she was a member, a regular attendant and a helpful worker in the First Christian Reformed church.
Funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon and later at the First Christian Reformed church. The services were conducted by Rev. J. N. Vandekieft. Burial was in the cemetery adjoining the church. There was a very large attendance at the church service.
The pall bearers were S. H. Meyer, Ed. H. Meyer, W. E. Meyer, W. H. Meyer, Harm H. Meyer and Fred Eiten. Music was by the sextet composed of Elizabeth Eekhoff, Lillian Eiten, Julia Wulf, Marlys Meints, Bernice Primus and Mrs. Claus G. Primus. Elizabeth Eekhoff was organist. The flower attendants were Jessie P. Ruter and Esther Haupt.
Mrs. A. C. Bunger was born on Jan. 8, 1871, in Grundy County. Her maiden name was Geertje Eiten. She spent her life in the vicinity of Wellsburg. She was baptized in the Wellsburg church where she later made confession of her faith. On Sept. 6, 1892, she married A. C. Bunger. Of this marriage were born two sons and three daughters. Remaining to mourn her departure are the husband, A. C. Bunger; the five children, Mrs. John Reents of Wellsburg, Gertie of Wellsburg, Koert of Wellsburg, Mrs. O. H. Nederhoff of Wellsburg and Lambert of Wellsburg; eight grandchildren and one step-grandson; one sister, Mrs. H. S. Meyer, of Wellsburg. Three brothers and one sister have preceded her in death.
