Louis Krambeer, 64, Passes On Monday; Hold Rites Today

Louis C. Krambeer, a resident of this community since 1906 and of Postville since 1940, passed on at his home here Monday morning after a 10-day illness. He was aged 64 years, two months and 19 days.

Funeral services are being held this afternoon in the Community Presbyterian church, with the Rev. Eldon L. Seamans officiating. Interment will be in the Postville cemetery. Pallbearers are Harold Brewer, Henry Larson, Carl C. Sander, Otto Schroeder, James W. Steele and Fred C. Ruckdaschel.

Louis Christian Krambeer was born at Dexter, Minn., March 1, 1882, the son of John and Augusta Engelhardt Krambeer. As a young child he came with his parents to Clayton county and this community has since been his home.

He was united in marriage with Cora Walter of Monona on November 27, 1906, and to this union were born six children, all of whom live in this community: Lawrence, Ellen (Mrs. Gerald Koopman), Helen (Mrs. Lawrence Bollman), Arno, Elmer and Evelyn, the latter being at home.

Mr. Krambeer lived on a farm in Grand Meadow township until 1940 when the family moved to Postville. He was a member of the Community Presbyterian church and was active in many of the farmers' organizations in this community.
In addition to his wife and six children, he is survived by 27 grandchildren, six brothers and five sisters, and a host of other relatives and friends. His parents, a sister and a brother preceded him in death.
