Sioux Center Newspaper of Aug 22, 1917
On the 9th of August, after a short and painful suffering, the Lord took from me my beloved husband and father of two children, Christiaan Van Roekel, at the young age of more than 32 years. In the midst of the deep mourning and great loss, we owe him thanks, and for his comfort Patience has been shown in his suffering and the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ. He fell asleep in peace and tranquility. We mourn, but with the joyful hope of to be eternally united. We thank the friends and neighbors for the help and interest shown. Also on behalf of the children, Mrs. C. Van Roekel.
