WILLIAM ALMROTH DIES "* |
AFTER LCtNG ILLNESS |
j William Almroth, well known citi- I j zen of Elmore, died at his home on I West Rice street Friday night after a j long illness of heart trouble. He had j j suffered a serious attack last year but I had recovered sufficiently to be able j to do some work in the fall. A recur¬ rence of the trouble this winter proved too much for his weakened system and he passed quietly away surrounded by his wife, his two sisters and his brother Conrad.
The funeral was held at the home and then at Zion Evangelical church in Elliston Monday afternoon, the pas¬ tor, Rev. Yaecker, officiating, assisted by Rev. L. R. Moessner of Elmore and Rev. August Peter, a boyhood friend, from Flat Rock. Interment was in Elmore cemetery.
William Almroth was born July 7, 1863, at Elliston, Ohio, the son of Peter and Martha Almroth, and the second child of a family of eight chil- j dren. Through the influence of Chris- j tian parents he early united with the , church and continued his connection j till his death.
February 11, ; was united j
in marriage to Miss Sophia Christina | Croll, who has been the inseparable j companion of his joys and sorrows and j who survives to mourn his departure, For many years they lived on a farm j north of Elmore near Elliston but fif- | teen years ago in January they came j to Elmore and this has since been ' their home. His has been quite an ac- j tive life up to the last year and when he was called to his rest he had! reached the age of 6Q years and 7 j months. Besides his widow, there j survive four brothers, Henry, George and John of Toledo, and Conrad of j Elliston; also two sisters, Mrs. Mary! Hellwig and Mrs. Kate Hellwig, both of Toledo.
The funeral was very largely at¬ tended and the service made more im¬ pressive by the fact that the pastor used as his text the same one used at the funeral of his mother in 1895— Phillipians 1:21.
