Miss E. Kannegieter
Death Occurred at Marshalltown--Mourned by Relatives and Many Friends
Our community was greatly shocked when the sad news was received that the Death Angel came to the relief of Margaret Kannegieter in life's green spring, the youngest daughter of Eibe and Bina Kannegieter. She passed away about 3 o'clock Sunday morning, Sept. 23, 1934.
The funeral services were held on last Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock in the home, followed by a very encouraging and comforting service in the Eastfriesland Presbyterian church, with Rev. F. W. Engelke, the pastor, in charge using as his texts, Isaiah 25:8, "He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth; for the Lord hath spoken it." And also a portion of Peter's encouraging Pentecostal sermon found in Acts 2:21, "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."
A large group of relatives and friends attended the services to pay their last tribute of respect to the deceased.
Interment was made in the Eastfriesland church cemetery, Wednesday, Sept. 26. Cousins of the deceased acted as pall bearers.
Margaret Eldina Kannegieter, youngest daughter of Eible and Bina Kannegieter, born March 15, 1918, in German township, Grundy county, Iowa, was dedicated to God in Baptism June 2, 1918, and afterward became a regular attendant of church services, Sunday school, catechism classes, and Christian Endeavor meetings. In May 1931 she graduated from the Flowing Well School, District No. 8 in German township. About two weeks before her death she became seriously afflicted; two physicians were summoned, the verdict of both was that Margaret's condition was very critical and they advised she be taken to the hospital. For two weeks she was under close observation of doctors in Marshalltown Deaconess hospital, but nothing could be done for her. "God moves in mysterious ways His wonders to perform." Mysterious also was God's dealing with the one whom He summoned so early in life's green spring. Her parents bear testimony to the fact that Margaret on her death bed, by the grace of God, often called on the name of the Lord and found acceptance; that before her departure, in clear consciousness and peaceful, with a radiant countenance her spirit took flight to the home of endless light, at 3 o'clock, Sunday morning.
She is survived, mourned and missed by both her parents, Eibe and Bina Kannegieter; three sisters, Mrs. John Kuper, Mrs. Wm. Oelman, Mrs. Harm Kruse; five brothers, John, Henry, Matthew, Harry, and Frederick; also many relatives.
The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved parents and brothers and sisters. Their deep sorrow will be shared by neighbors and friends here and elsewhere.
