Mrs. G. Kruger Dies Suddenly
Mrs. Gosinus Krueger died suddenly at her home in Parkersburg Friday morning following a sudden heart attack. She had been in good health up to the time she was stricken. She was 69 years old on the 4th of last November and she lived in this locality and in Parkersburg all of her life.
Mr. and Mrs. Krueger had risen earlier than usual, as Mr. Krueger was planning to go to the hospital in Iowa City for treatments, and she started to get breakfast when she said she felt dizzy, and she passed away before anybody could get there.
Funeral services were held at the home in Parkersburg Monday afternoon and later at the Reformed church west of Fern. Burial was in the cemetery adjoining the church. The services were conducted by Rev. A. Linnemann.
Mrs. Kruger's maiden name was Anna Katherine Meester. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Meester. She was born on a farm a mile west and a half mile north of Fern and she grew up there. On March 6, 1899, she and Gesinus Krueger were married. They made their home on the farm near here until eight years ago when they moved to Parkersburg.
Surviving are her deeply bereaved husband and 6 children: Henry, living at Bristow; Trena (Mrs. Ned Freeseman); Andrew, Dietrich, Jake and George, all living in northern Grundy county. A daughter, Dena, and two sisters, Mrs. Heite Peters and Mrs. Bernard Engelkes and 1 brother, Jacob, preceded her in death. She leaves four brothers, Joe A. Meester of Grundy Center, Thomas and John Meester of Wellsburg, and Henry H. Meester of Holland; 2 sisters, Mrs. Joe J. Meester of Parkersburg and Mrs. Eilert Pruis of Holland, and 11 grandchildren, besides a host of other relatives and friends.
Since March 15, 1907, she was a full communion member of the Pleasant Valley Reformed church. Mrs. Krueger was also a charter member of the Ladies' Aid. She will be missed in the church and Society, as she was always in her place, in season, or out of season. But our loss is her gain.
