Mills County Tribune
October 18, 1900
Fritz Meyer died at his home in Mineola Wednesday evening of last week. As we noted in last week’s Tribune, Mr. Meyer was dangerously ill with blood poison and his system was too weak to enable him to rally from the shock.
A short funeral service was held in Mineola Saturday morning after which the body was taken to Council Bluffs for burial. The final service and interment took place at 10 o’clock on Sunday morning. A large number of Mr. Meyer’s old friends and neighbors were present at the last sad scene enacted over the departure of this worthy citizen. The deceased was born in Hanover, Germany, June 20, 1898 and when a young man moved to America.
He at one time ran a saloon in Glenwood and made a host of acquaintances while here. Later on he moved to Council Bluffs and finally about eight years ago he moved to Mineola where he has conducted a saloon and boarding house ever since.
His death removes one of the most conspicuous figures in Mineola business circles. Mr. Meyer was liked by all who knew him and notwithstanding the business in which he was engaged for the greater portion of his business life, he was an honest and thoroughly upright citizen. No one will be more missed in Mineola and locality than Fritz Meyer. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Wright the Methodist minister from Silver City and the Oddfellows lodge had charge of a portion of the service.
