Obituary Of Mrs. Niemann
A Good Wife and Mother is Called To Eternal Rest
Mrs. Grace Niemann, the beloved wife of John Niemann, died at her late home in Stout, Iowa, November 16, 1918, of the much dreaded disease pneumonia which caused sorrow in thousands of homes in this country, after an illness of but two days.
The diseased was born August 1st, 1865, and while yet a young girl she came to America. The greater part of her life she spent in Iowa. She was united in marriage to John Niemann and to them were born three daughters and two sons who are now bereft of the guiding care and council of a loving mother. She was a member of the Ladies Aid Society of the Reformed church, Stout, Iowa.
Aside from her husband and five children, mother, one sister and three brothers she leaves a very large circle of relatives and friends.
The funeral was held from the house of the bereaved family Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. F. Reeverts, her pastor officiating. Her death was so sudden and unexpected, it came as a heavy blow to the community and especially to those of her family. May He who noteth even the fall of a sparrow, comfort and sustain the afflicted ones in their great sorrow.
