    • Death of Mrs. L. Van Pelt, sr.

      Andrika, wife of Mr. L. Van Pelt, sr., departed this life on Sunday, June 1, 1902, at 1:15 p. m., at the age of 74 years, after long and continued suffering from rheumatism and other ailments common in advanced age.

      Deceased was born in Holland in 1828, her maiden name being Andrika Van Iterson; she came to America in 1856 settling in Pella, Iowa. In 1870 with her husband she came to Sioux county, being among the first settlers
      of the colony. They settled on a farm just west of Orange City, where they resided until ten years ago, when they built a fine residence in town and retired from the farm.

      The death of Mrs. Van Pelt, although not unexpected, brought deepest sorrow to her family and friends, to whom her noble life had endeared her. She was a Christian lady, a devoted wife and indulgent mother. She leaves her aged husband and eight grown children -all of whom were in attendance at the death bed- to mourn her demise.

      How sadly the death of this beloved companion falls on the aged husband cannot, in any manner, be fully realized; but when we stop to consider that they have for fifty-four years fought, hand in hand-buffeting the hardships of early days one can begin to realize the loving fidelity which cemented these faithful hearts, and the depth of sorrow its severing bring.

      The funeral sermon was preached yesterday afternoon by Rev. Staplekamp at the First Reformed church. The remains were followed to their final resting place in the Orange City cemetery by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends. THE HERALD desires to extend its sympathy to the family in their great bereavement.
