DEATH OF MRS. SIEBELS
Old Resident Succumbs to infirmities of Age
Mrs. Henry Siebels, residing on Howard street, died at her home in this city on Friday. Death was caused by general debility and the infirmities of old age, Mrs. Siebels having been in poor health the past two years.
She was a native of Germany, having been born in that country on October 2, 1840, and in 1864 was united in marriage with Dirk Fredrichs, with whom she lived happily until his death in 1881.
Seven children were born to them, six of whom are living. They are Mrs. Driekmann, Mrs. Albert Adden, John, Fred and Dick, all residing in this vicinity, and Mrs. H. Johnson, of Ireton.
In 1883 with her young family Mrs. Fredrichs came to America to join relatives already established in Plymouth, and made her home with her sister, Mrs. Peck, residing in Washington township. In 1886 she was united in marriage with Henry Siebels and they farmed southwest of LeMars for a number of years. On retiring from farm life they came to LeMars in 1905 and have resided here since.
The deceased leaves in addition to her sons and daughters a number of stepchildren, grandchildren and one great grandchild.
The funeral will be held this afternoon at half past one at St. Johnís Lutheran church, Rev. J. J. Volimar officiating.
Mrs. Siebels was a devoted wife and mother, a good friend and neighbor and enjoyed the respect and esteem of a large circle of acquaintances and friends.
