Funeral services for Carl Austin Stickelman, 84, of Blockton, held August 15 at the Blockton Christian Church, were conducted by Rev. O. A. Streepy and Rev. George W.

Carl Austin Stickelman, son of Joseph and Jennie (Fordyce) Havner Stickelman of Siam, was born December 16, 1888.

He was a faithful member of the Christian Church.

Mr. Stickelman, a graduate with high distinction from the College of Telegraphy, was a telegrapher for the Chicago Great Western from 1910 to 1949, when ill health forced his retirement.  During these years he was granted the highest honors from the company for his competency and excellency of work.

He was united in marriage to Pearl King Kemery in 1916.  She preceded him in death in December 1961.

Carl was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, John and Waldo, and his sisters, Velma, Allie, Christine and Girda.

He was a genius with flowers, in growing them and floral arrangements.  It was a joy to him to share this beauty with beautiful arrangements for church services.  During his years of employment he supplied several floral shops in Des Moines, Ia, with gladioli and iris.

On January 6, 1968, he was united in marriage with Ola May Streepy.
