Funeral Services For Mrs. Nabbe Saturday
Funeral services for Mrs. Menno Nobbe were held in the Christian Reformed church here last Saturday and they were largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. P. H. Eldersveld and Rev. George Swalve. Burial was in Colfax Presbyterian cemetery.
Mrs. Anna Nobbe, nee Dopper, was born on the 22nd day of July, 1874, at Scheem'da, Netherlands. At this place she was united in marriage to Menno Nobbe on May 22, 1896. Six years later the young couple emigrated to this country, locating in the vicinity of Holland, Iowa, where they were engaged in farming for several years. Upon leaving the farm they moved to the town of Holland where they have resided ever since.
In the year 1911 Mr. and Mrs. Nobbe took a trip to their old homeland where they greatly enjoyed a visit with relatives and friends. Having no children of their own, they arranged for their nephew, Heiko Teggelaar, to come into their home, and for 27 years he took the place of a loving son in their lives and was of much comfort and help to them in their old age.
About a week before her death the departed was suddenly stricken with a stroke of paralysis from which she did not regain consciousness, and on the morning of Aug. 12th the Lord called her home at the age of 68 years, 2 weeks and 21 days.
Those left to mourn her loss are the aged husband, her nephew, Heiko Tiggelaar, and family, and one sister living in The Netherlands. Another sister, Mrs. Geo. Hut, preceded her in death about five years ago. She will be greatly missed by the family and by neighbors and friends.
Relatives from a distance who attended the funeral services were Mrs. Peter Bos, Toronto, S. Dak.; Peter Kniepper, Everly, Ia.; Vernon Wright, Spencer; Mr. and Mrs. Louie Hutter, Dows; Mr. and Mrs. Christ Panther, Allison; Carl Muller, Morrison; Mrs. Lyman Mason, Reinbeck.
