Harm Meyer Dies At Advanced Age

Harm Meyer, who resided on a Grundy county farm during most of his active lifetime, died last Thursday at Ellsworth hospital, Iowa Falls. He was 96 years old. He had been in the hospital but one day before he died. Death was due to advanced age and complications. He had been living at the home of his son Jake at Iowa Falls 3 years before his death.

The body was taken from the hospital to the Engelkes funeral home at Parkersburg. There was a short service at the funeral home at one o'clock Monday and a short time later at the Reformed church at Stout of which he had been a member. Burial was in the cemetery at Stout.

Harm T. Meyer was born May 4, 1865, in Logwart, Germany. In his early years he immigrated to this country and settled at Steamboat Rock, Iowa. Most of his life was spent farming in the Iowa Falls and Buffalo Center area. In 1920 he retired to his earthly home at Stout, Iowa.

On Dec. 1, 1889, he was united in marriage to Helen Wubben at Steamboat Rock, Iowa. Among the trials of this earth Mr. Meyer experienced the great loss of his wife and mother of 10 children who died on Jan. 2, 1921.

On Sept. 7, 1922, he was united in marriage to Mrs. Ida Cordes.

He has faithfully attended services in the Stout Reformed church for about 35 years, until age and infirmity kept him from worship. He was received into the Stout Reformed Church as a communicant member from the Baptist Church on Oct. 7, 1956. God blessed him with many years of life. He faithfully loved to hear the message of the Word of God by preaching or reading.
