Wiard Jansen Wiltfang was born in Emden, Germany, on October 18, 1878, and passed away on September 29, 1957, in his home in Sutherland, Iowa. His parents both passed away while he was very young, and all his brothers and sisters have also preceded him in death.

He came to America in 1909, and lived in New York for five years. It was while in New York that he took a great interest in the work of the Wall Street Mission. In 1914, he moved to Orange City, and later to Sanborn, and then to Sutherland in 1923. He was in the baking business for 14 years until 1937.

Mr. Wiltfang was a member of the Methodist church.

On April 8, 1907, he was united in marriage to Adeline Schneider, at Delmenhorst, Germany. To them were born five children, one of whom, Rudolph, preceded him in death in 1939.

Survivors are his wife, Mrs. Adeline Wiltfang, and four children: Mrs. Larry (Gertrude) Gilbert, and William Wiltfang of Sutherland, Iowa; Mrs. Philip (Louise) Schultz, of Mason City, Iowa; and Daniel Wiltfang, of Iowa City, Iowa; also eight grandchildren and other relatives.
