Mother of Five Small Children Dies at Hospital
Mrs. Klaas C. Kruger, mother of five small children, the oldest of whom is 7 years and the youngest 16 months, died at St. Thomas hospital in Marshalltown about six o'clock Tuesday morning. The day previous she had submitted to an operation for the removal of a tumor. The operation seemed to be wholly successful and the patient appeared to have rallied satisfactorily and there was every assurance that she would get well. Early Monday evening she began to show effects of the shock from the operation in irregular heart action that continued to get worse until the end came early the following morning.
The body was brought from the hospital to the Stephen funeral home in Grundy Center. Services will be held at the funeral home at 12:30 Friday and at one o'clock at the First Presbyterian church in Grundy Center. Rev. Oliver Stevenson will have charge of the services. Burial will be in the cemetery adjoining the Colfax township Presbyterian church.
Mrs. Kruger was 30 years old on the 16th of last November. Her maiden name was Fern Ramona Wandling. She was born at Blairstown, Iowa, and she attended the rural schools in that vicinity and resided there until she was married to Klaas Kruger October 6, 1928. Following their marriage the couple began housekeeping in Grundy Center and they have made their home here ever since. Mrs. Kruger's mother died when she was a small child. Her father married again.
Surviving are the husband, the five children and her father. The children are Ramona, 7, Klaas, 6, Lawrence, 4, Bernita, 3, and Arnold, 16 months.
