After an illness of long duration, dating back to five years ago, Mrs. Peter Baer passed away Saturday night at 9:00 o'clock at the home of her son Will Baer on East First street at the age of 76 years, 6 months and 19 days. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock at the home of her son, Rev. Paul J. Christensen pastor of the Baptist church, officiating, with interment in Oakwood. Mrs. Baer is survived by her husband, one son, Will, and a stepson, Frank, of Los Angeles, California. She also leaves four brothers, William De Bruyn of Knoxville, John, Bert and Lewis of Pella. She was the last of the daughters of William De Bruyn and Aaltje Smorenberg, who were among the early settlers in Pella. Mrs. Baer, born in Pella, had spent all of her life here with the exception of a short time, when she lived in Eddyville. Mrs. Baer, a member of the Baptist church for many years, was a woman of exemplary character and was held in high esteem by a large circle of friends. -Pella Chronicle. May 12, 1938
