Carl Schroeder Dies in Hospital
Prominent Holstein Resident Expires at Sioux City Nov. 1. Burial Tuesday
Holstein, Iowa, Nov. 5 Ė Carl Frederick Schroeder of Holstein died Saturday, November 1 at 3:30 p.m., in a Sioux City hospital, where he had undergone an operation from which he failed to rally. Mr. Schroeder had been ill for about three years and his affliction increased until an operation had become the only hope of arresting his disease. He was born February 2, 1876 at Berlin in province Schleswig-Holstein, Germany and lived to the age of 54 years, 7 months and 29 days. He was baptized when a month old and confirmed in the evangelical Lutheran church at Selent on February 22, 1891. He received his secular and religious instruction from the father of the late Otto Drews, whose memory he cherished throughout life. Immediately after his confirmation, he left for the United States, coming directly to Schaller, Iowa, where he was received into the home of an uncle, Charles Schroeder. He found employment on farms around Schaller and Holstein. Faithful to duty and imbued with the hope and the desire to established his own home he labored on until in 1903 he was able to acquire a farm six miles northwest of Holstein, which ever since has been his home. On February 16, 1904, he was united in marriage with Miss Dorothea Wink, a daughter of Fred Wink, Sr., at St. Paulís Lutheran church by the late pastor Gabriel. Two children, a daughter, Sophia, now Mrs. Henry Ruhser, and a son, Fritz, came to gladden their home. This happy family circle was rent by the death of the mother who succumbed to the [text illegible in crease]. Father and children were drawn closer together through this adversity and sorrow. The double duty thrust upon him did not discourage him to continue his established home and home life. Mr. Schroeder was also devoted was also devoted to church. His affiliation with St. Paulís church dates back to his arrival in this community. He gave unstintingly of his time and his earthly means to further the cause of the Kingdom of God through the church at home and through Synod.

Besides his son and daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter, he leaves one brother, Jim Schroeder of Holstein, 3 sisters, Mrs. Lena Hamann of Battle Creek, Mrs. Henry Voege of near Holstein and Mrs. Ella Gosch in Germany.
