Carl Jeglum, 68, one of Estherville's prominent business men, died at 3:45 a.m. Saturday at his home from a heart ailment. He always enjoyed good health until about three years ago when he suffered a severe heart attack, from which it was thought he would not recover. However, he regained his strength and was able to attend to his business every day until Mar. 3 when he suffered another heart attack. He rallied again after a few days and was planning to go down town the next day when he had a severe set back and passed away.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home and at the Estherville Lutheran church, where Mr. Jeglum and family have worshipped during their residence here. The Rev. L. A. Mathre officiated. A quartet comprised of Jennie and Lloyd Handeland, Emma Sunde and Everett Shaw, sang three numbers with Mrs. Albert Meyer presiding at the organ. Interment was made in the family plot at the Oakhill cemetery.

Pallbearers were Fred Robinson, G. K. Allen, John Lilley, J. E. Wilson, G. R. Connelly and J. M. Wolden.

Carl L. Jeglum was born Sept. 17, 1868 at Waterville, Iowa, the youngest child of Lars and Sarah Jeglum. Baptized as a child he was later confirmed in the Lutheran faith by Rev. H. A. Hartman of the East Paint Creek Lutheran church, Allamakee county.

At the age of 18 he went to Lyle, Minn., where he was employed by A. O. Myhre in his general store. In 1891 he came with A. O. Myhre to Estherville and continued to work for the firm until 1900, when he opened and conducted a store at Huntington. On the fifteenth of May, 1893 he was united in marriage to Ida Myhre. Their marriage was blessed with eight children. One daughter, Verna a twin, died at the age of one and a half years, and the eldest daughter, Alma, wife of Arthur Bringle died in 1924 and Imo, Mrs. Elmer Osher died in 1923.

In 1908 Mr. Jeglum returned to Estherville, becoming a partner with A. O. Myhre and Theo. Myhre in the firm since known as Myhre and Jeglum, in which he was active until his death. Mr. Jeglum had thus been active in business circles in Estherville and vicinity for 46 years, and had therefore seen Estherville grow up from a small town to its present dimensions. In 1917-1921 Mr. Jeglum served two terms on the Estherville City Council.

He is survived by his widow, five children, Lloyd of Chicago, Claire and Mrs. Horace Johnson of Philadelphia, Pa., Mrs. R. L. Hanson and Mrs. Elmer Adams of Estherville; one brother, Halvor Larson of Clear Lake and two sisters, Mrs. Rosena Anderson and Mrs. Olena Gilbertson of Austin, Minn. Also five grandchildren.

Carl Jeglum Business Man Dies Suddenly

While the death of Carl L. Jeglum, Estherville's pioneer business man, came as a sudden shock Saturday to the residents of our city, to relatives and his close friends it was not wholly unexpected.

Mr. Jeglum had been in business circles here and at Huntington for forty-six years. While here he as been connected with A. O. Myhre and Theodore Myhre. At Huntington he was in business for himself.

Mr. Jeglum was extremely popular with the public and his close friends will agree with the writer that no man ever had a better or more loyal friend than he. We have reason to know this, for during the past twenty years, there have been but very few days we have not had coffee with Mr. Jeglum each morning at ten o'clock. It was a habit with the three members of the coffee club. In that time we have learned day by day, what a friend he was and now that he has gone we more than ever appreciate his loyal friendship. He was a man, we can truthfully say, it has been a pleasure to have known and been on intimate terms with.

On Wednesday afternoon we had a long visit with him at his home. He seemed to be in good spirits and came out on the porch to tell us good bye. He said, "I am going down to the store tomorrow and will be at coffee club on Monday or Tuesday." At ten o'clock that night he had another very severe heart attack from which he never recovered.

Never have we heard any harsh word spoken of him by anyone. His has been a life of honesty and integrity. He has been an advisor to many of all ages and a guidance to many of the school age who frequented his place of business.

Mr. Jeglum was a devoted family man and it was their interests that were always first in his mind. His failing throughout our acquaintance with him, was that he never thought of his own welfare but always of others. In his death Estherville has lost a fine business man and one who will be greatly missed by his many friends in all walks of life.

The following obituary was used at the funeral services by the Rev. L. A Mathre, who so ably officiated. [Same as previous obituary.] (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, March 25, 1937)
