Mrs. Riedmiller, Former Alton Girl Dies At Sioux City. News of the death of Florence Goebel Riedmiller of Danbury on Thursday afternoon, October 6 came as a sad shock to friends here. Mrs. Riedmiller had not been in her usual health since she was injured in a car accident early in August. Thursday morning she had a severe attack of illness and was taken to St. Joseph’s hospital, Sioux City, where an operation was performed at noon. She passed on the same afternoon shortly after four, in the presence of her husband, her mother, sisters and brothers, who drove to Sioux City that morning from Alton.
