PETER LOUDENBERG CALLED IN DEATH
Peter Loudenberg, who made his home near Walnut for five pears, but who moved near Tampico several years ago, died very suddenly at his home early last Friday morning, after an illness of only a few hours. He had returned Thursday evening from a couple of days trip to Chicago and while he had been in poor health for a couple of years, was feeling no worse that evening. He was taken ill during the night and grew gradually wrse until the end came.
The deceased was a prominent farmer and stock raiser, and his sudden death was a shock to his many friends in this vicinity, many of whom attended the funeral which was held at his late home at 10 o’clock Sunday and the remains were taken to the Osceola cemetery near Bradford for burial.
Mr. Loudenberg was born 51 years ago in Stark county, Illinois. In 1890 he was married to Miss Mary Harmon, who with four children are left to mourn the loss of a kind husband and father.
