Sioux Center Nieuwsblad of Feb 26, 1010 In Dutch
On Friday morning, February 21, 1919, after a short but severe suffering, softly and calmly in his Savior and Redeemer, our beloved Father and Brother fell asleep. Cornelis Kamerman, aged 64 years less a day. Faithful in what his hand found here to do to the last, his hope and trust established in the God of beatitudes. The desire that he has gone to be with Jesus lessens our sorrow. Where the life is Christ, there dying is gain. The Children and brother of the deceased, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Kamerman, Jos. Wiersma, Henrietta Kamerman, John Kamerman, Hendrik Kamerman.
With this we express our sincere thanks to all who have so faithfully assisted us and showed their sympathy during Father's illness and death.

In another article:
Last week On Friday morning after a short but painful suffering from rheumatism, Mr. Cornelis Kamerman. One of the oldest residents of Sioux Center passed away with him. He was already working here in Mr. Henry Van Beek’s store in old Sioux Center and later for Mr. T. Prins, then he went out with the peddle wagon from the store. When the new Sioux Center was built, he started a store on the corner, where Te Veltrup and Van der Meulen now have their store. He was then in company with Mr. Van Gortel. Later van Gortel left and Kamerman stayed there in all about five years ago. About eight years ago his wife died, some years later his old daughter and last year his son Bert. Mr. Kamerman has been sexton of the Second Ref Church for twenty years and he could not be improved as a sexton. He was faithful in his work and made sure that everything was perfect. He was generally acknowledged and it cannot be clear that his death has become an empty place in Sioux Center. We were all so used to the deceased and have been here for a long time, and the active part he had, especially during the first years in the business world of Sioux Center, he formed, as it were, the link between the old and the new.
Monday afternoon the funeral took place from the 2nd Ref. church, which he served as sexton, under the direction of Rev. Haverkamp. We agree with the children.
