Obituary--Mrs. George Rademaker
Mrs. George Rademaker died at her home in Beaver township on the evening of Nov. 20th, after having been sick but a short time with heart trouble. The sudden death of Mrs. Rademaker was a shock to the community where she had lived so long and where she was so highly regarded by all who knew her.
Funeral services conducted by Rev. Siemsen were held at the Siemsen church west of Fern Monday afternoon and the very large attendance in a measure spoke the high esteem in which the deceased was held.
Mrs. Rademaker's maiden name was Johanna Bergman. She was born in Germany in 1866, making her 46 years old at the time of her death. With the other members of her family she came to this country in 1890. Three years later she was united in marriage with George Rademaker. To this union five children were born. One of them preceded the mother to her last resting place. Of the four living children two are boys and two are girls. The oldest is a daughter of 18 and the youngest child is five.
Aside from the husband and children, Mrs. Rademaker is survived by her step-mother, four brothers and four sisters. The brothers are Jacob, Frank and Tammo Bergman of this county and John of Steen, Minn. The sisters are Mrs. Anna Klosterboer, Mrs. Theo Klunder, Mrs. E. Doeden and Miss Jennie Bergman.
Those from a distance who were here at the funeral were Tammo Tammen and wife from Steen, Minn., Harm Doeden from George and H. Doeden and daughter from Oregon, Ill.
