Mrs. F. Reemts, one of the early settlers of this vicinity, died at her home in this city at 4:10 o'clock last Thursday morning, October 27, 1927, aged 78 years, 6 months, and 3 days, of heart trouble and complications.

She had been in failing health for some time, but took seriously ill about seven months ago, and, although she seemed to improve in health at times, she had frequent relapses, until at at last she was worn out by the long siege of sickness and passed to her eternal rest.

Frauke Christina Reemts (nee Jacobs) was born April 19, 1849, in marienhafen, Ostfriesland, Germany, at which place she was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran church. On June 30, 1873, she was united in marriage with Fredrick Reemts, and this union was blessed with eight children--4 sons and four daughters. In 1888 they came to the United States, first settling at Forreston, Illinois, where they remained five years. In 1888 they came to Iowa, settling near Akron, living there six years, and then moved onto a farm in Union county, S. D.

On June 29, 1901, her beloved husband was taken from her by a sudden death but she contined to reside on the farm until 1910, when she bought a home in Akron and has lived here ever since.

Mrs. Reemts was a woman of most cheerful and helful disposition, always quick to sympathize with and assist others in time of need or misfortune, a devoted wife and mother, whose noble Christian life was a bendiction to those about her.

Besides a host of friends, she is mourned by eight children--Mrs. John Kruse, near Brunsville, this county; Chris. Reemts, of Union county, S. D.; Frank Reemts, of Akron; Mrs John Borchers, of Preston township, this county; John Reemts, south east of Akron; Herman Reemts, northeast of Akron; Mrs. Clyde Ross, of Union county, S. D., and Mrs. Henry Steinert, of Akron; also by one sister in Germany, twenty grandechildren and two great-grandchildren. They have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.

Funeral services were held Sunday, at 12:3i0 at the home and at 1 p.m. in Trinity Lutheran church in this city, her pastor, Rev. F. A. Meske, conducting the service in the English language. At 3 p.m.; a service was conducted in the German language by Rev. Theo. Meyer in the Preston Township Lutheran church, where intererment was made in the cemetery beside her departed husband. There was a large attendance at the funeral services.
