Obituary – John K. Weible
John K. Weible was born in Johnstown, Pa., Nov. 26, 1867, and passed away at St. Joseph’s Mercy Hospital, Fort Dodge, Iowa, Satuday, Aug. 5, 6:00 p.m., following an emergency major operation as a last resort to save his life. He moved to Gilmore City, Iowa, in the spring of 1892, and since that time has followed his vocation of painting and carpentering in and about this locality. He was married in 1894 to Miss Mary Wortley of the Unique neighborhood, and to this union four children were born, one of which preceded the father in death. The relatives surviving Mr. Weible are his loving and devoted wife, two sons, George and Lorenzo, a daughter, Regina Maye, and two sisters and five brothers residing in Pennsylvania.
Mr. Weible, though in failing health for years, being a victim of asthma, endured his failing health cheerfully and was of an uncomplaining nature. In the death of John Weible, Gilmore City lost one of its most upright and conscientious citizens. He was a man who by his friendly, loving and cheerful ways made friends wherever he went. There were few who did not clasp his hand in good fellowship and call him friend. One of God’s good men. He was a devout Christian and a faithful follower of the creed of the Methodist Episcopal church. Mr. Weible apparently enjoyed his usual health until 8:00 p.m. Monday, July 31, when he became suddenly very ill, growing so much worse that Tuesday morning, after a hurried consultation of physicians, he was rushed to the hospital at Fort Dodge, where that afternoon he underwent an operation for strangulated intestines. In his weakened condition he was unable to rally from the shock, and passed away as above stated.
Funeral services in charge of B. H. Wilder of Humboldt were held Monday afternoon, from the house at one o’clock, and from the M. E. church at two o’clock. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. T. B. Collins of Humboldt, formerly a pastor of the deceased. Interment was in the Humboldt cemetery. [Source – Gilmore City Enterprise, Gilmore City, Iowa, Thursday, Aug. 10, 1922, p.1]
