Birth: May 11, 1877
Death: May 6, 1923

On Sunday evening May 6 the entire community was shocked by news of the sadden death of John Aalberts. who passed away with heart failure. Mr. Aalberts was born on the family homestead three miles west of Orange City and lived there his entire life. On Dec. 10, 1900 he was married to Miss Minnie De Jong. To this wedlock 5 children were born: the twins Gradus and Garret, Nina, Alfred and Edwin, who with the widow and one brother, survive.
Mr. Aalberts was 46 years and 5 days old at the time of his death.
Funeral services were conducted at the home by the brother-in-law, Rev. G.H. Douwstra, and at the church by Rev. J. Steunenberg, where the friends and relatives filled the church to capacity. Many beautiful floral tributes were given as tokens of sympathy and loving remembrance.
A kind and thoughtful husband and father, a genial friend, religious, active in church work during his last years, his standing was high in the community and he will be missed not only by the family, but by a host of friends.

Alton Democrat 1923-05-12.
