Mrs. Juliana Hormel, whose maiden name was Brauch, was born Jan. 16, 1829, in Hessen-Nassau, Germany. Together with her husband, Jacob Hormel, they came to America and settled on a homestead in Plymouth County, Iowa, in 1869 in which vicinity she has ever since resided.
Their union was blessed with five children, one son and four daughters, of whom two survive, Mrs. Bertha Peterson, of Lincoln Township, and Mrs. Margaret Rummel, living in Canada, Mr. Hormel having passed away in 1885. During her later life she had her home with her daughter, Mrs. Peterson, where her demise took place at the advanced age of 89 years, 5 months and 26 days. Her last days were filled with much suffering due to a fractured hip sustained during a fall several years ago, which made a shut-in of her from which death released her July 12th, 1918,
She united with the Floyd Evangelical Church in the early days and attended there as long as her circumstances permitted.
Funeral services were held at the Peterson home July 14th by Rev. F. W. Agte of the United Evangelical Church and her mortal remains were interred on the family lot in the Melbourne Cemetery.
A large circle of friends and relatives mourn her departure to whom is extended the consolation of a reunion in the land where there shall be no more tears.
