George Eilers, Twp. Road Patrolman, Is Dead At Stout
George Eilers, who for a number of years served as road patrolman for Beaver township, died at his home in Stout Sunday afternoon, following an illness of several months from hardening of the arteries and high blood pressure. He was at the hospital at Iowa City several weeks for treatment but received no help there. Death was hastened because of a cerebral hemorrhage.
Funeral services were held at the home in Stout Wednesday afternoon and later at the Reformed church in Stout. The services were in charge of the local pastor, Rev. W. J. Heyenga, assisted by Rev. Wm. Landsiedel from Wellsburg.
Mr. Eilers was 35 years, 8 months and 12 days old at the time of his death. He was born in German township, Grundy county. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Eilers.
On December 26, 1917, George Eilers was married to Fannie Hinders. There were eight children. Seven of the children are living. An infant son died last January.
For a number of years following their marriage the Eilers family lived in Holland where George owned and operated the barber shop. About 13 years ago the family moved to Stout where they took over the barber shop and restaurant. During the past three years he was employed by the county as road patrolman.
Surviving are the wife and seven children, whose names are Tena, Kathryn, Marie, Minnie, Verley, George Junior, and Merna. Other survivors are his father, John Eilers; four brothers, Joe from Wellsburg, Fred from Parkersburg, Henry from Aplington, and Peter of Kesley. The sisters are Mrs. Annie Semlow, Grundy Center; Mrs. Hannah Harms of Kesley, and Mrs. Anna Pruisner, Parkersburg.
