Rosie Martinek was born in Bohemia on August 15, 1841. At the age of 27, while still a resident of Bohemia she was united in marriage to Frank Kopacek. The date of their marriage was February 3, 1869. Seven years later on April 29, 1876, Mr. Kopacek and family arrive in Marshalltown, Iowa, and took up their residence in America. There they tarried for a year and a half, when they removed to a farm in Franklin county, near the town of Ackley, where they lived for thirty one years. After retiring they spent seven years in Ackley and then came to dwell near their children in Hancock county. They lived with the Stank Nedved family.
Five children were born to the union but two of them preceded their mother in death. Those living are, Frank Kopacek, Jr., Mrs. Stank Nedved and Mrs. W. Zeman of Cedar Rapids. Thirty grandchildren survive, the husband is also living.
Requiem high mass was said at St. Venceslaus church at Duncan at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Rev Father Kopecky had the services in charge.
Mrs. W. Zeman, of Cedar Rapids, and Mrs. Lewis Prochaske, of Owatonna, were in attendance at the funeral. A large number of sympathetic friends gathered at the church to pay last respects to one who had departed after a useful life spent doing good here.
