Mrs. Rachel Schumpp. 38, died Thursday, Aug. 10, in the Belmond Community Hospital following a long illness.

Funeral services were held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 12. at Peace Reformed church. The Rev. Lloyd Gross officiated. He used as his text Psalm 73:22-26. Comfort in music was supplied by soloist., Tom Renner, who sang the hymns, "Not What My Hands Have Done," and "I Know That My Redeemer Liveth," Mrs. Gary Meadows served as organist. The congregation joined in singing the hymn, "Have Thine Own Way, Lord." Pallbearers were William Katter, Garold Lenz, Herman Goll, Byron Greiman, Jerry Kropp and Merle Klinge. Burial took place in the Peace Reformed Cemetery, with Bohn Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.

Mrs. Rachel Anna Schumpp was born August 13,1933 at Garner, to Victor and Drusilla Huenemann. She was baptized in the holy Christian faith by Rev. Schmidt at Peace Reformed church.

She was instructed in the faith of Jesus Christ and upon age of discernment she was confirmed in that faith by the Rev. Robert Stuebbe at Peace Reformed church. She continued a faithful and life long member of this congregation.

Before her long illness she has been active in the life and worship of her church. She served as Sunday School and Bible School teacher, and until her illness had been active in choir and was faithful in the Women's Missionary Society meetings and studies.

On July 14, 1962, she was joined in marriage by the Rev. Chester Ploeger to Edward W. Schumpp.

She was graduated from Garner high school, Waldorf College, and received further education at Drake University. She taught for 11 1/2 years at Goodell, Klemme, Forest City, Fort Dodge, Gowrie and Ames.

Mrs. Schumpp's recent life was one of sorrow and much suffering. In God's providence some six years ago she was afflicted with a brain tumor. She submitted to two major surgeries at Rochester, Minn. Medical science had done all that it could. It was not God's will that she should recover. After severe and intense suffering God took her home early last Thursday morning. She died in the Belmond Community Hospital where her sisters were faithfully at her side. She had attained the age of 38 years, 11 months, and 27 days.

She leaves in sorrow one child, Mary Elizabeth, and three sisters, Miriam (Mrs. Stanley Peter) of Garner; Abiail (Mrs. Robert Jacobsen) of Dows; and Eunice (Mrs. Donald Larson) of Livermore; and nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Mrs. Gerald Howell.
