Funeral Mass was held in Saint Mary's Catholic church in Ellsworth yesterday morning for the late Joseph Reiter who died shorly before midnight Saturday outside the family home 4 1/4 miles north of Ellsworth, of a heart attack, just as he arrived home from Ellsworth, as he was returning to his quarters.
His brother Thomas, also residing in the family home, arrived later, saw his brothers car in the garage and his bedroom door slightly ajar in the home and continued on to his own bed unaware that his brother was not in his room. Early Saturday morning a sister found his body just outside the residence.
Mr. Reiter was born on the family farm 65 years ago, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Mike Reiter, and with his brothers and sisters has continued residence there ever since with the exception of the years 1901-1902 when the family resided in Worthington, while his father was serving as sheriff of Nobles county.
He never married and continued to make his home on the family farm until his death. In ill health of recent years, he discontinued farming activities some years ago and began to take life a bit easier.
He is survived by his brothers; Jake, farming north of Ashton, Iowa; Vincent, in Grand Prairie township, and Thomas, at home. Also four sisters, Mrs. Cecelia Halstad, Los Angeles, Calif.; Mrs Martin McCardell, Magnolia, and Susan and Victoria at home. Funeral services were under direction of the Knights of Columbus, of which he was an honored member. Burial was in the family lot in St. Mary's cemetery, where his parents and a deceased brother and sister preceded him.
