Good Woman Passes

Mrs. Pauline Jufer, aged 65, wife of Mr. John Jufer, died at her home near Ottenheim Friday night, after suffering from heart trouble for some time.  As a member of the Reform Church she was ever willing to do her part for the betterment of the community and in her passing the community is made poorer.  Surviving her besides her husband are three sons and three daughters.  Services were conducted at the Reform Church, Ottenheim, at 10 o’clock Sunday morning, by Rev. Burlap, after which the body was laid to rest in the church cemetery.

A gloom was cast over our entire community Saturday morning when it became known that the spirit of Mr. John Naef had taken its flight to mansions in the sky.  He saw several months on the battlefields of France. John was big-hearted, kind, honest as the days are long.  He had been a citizen of Ottenheim for some time and this community had none better.  He was liked by all.  He leaves, besides a host of relatives and friends two brothers, Fred, with whom he lived since the death of his parents; another brother, Emil Naef, of Indianapolis; two sisters, Mrs. Jim Purdeci, of Georgetown, and Mrs. Wiseman, of Louisville.  Funeral services were held at the Reform Church here at 2 o’clock Monday afternoon by the pastor, Rev. Burlepp, of Greenheim.  Burial followed in the cemetery near the church.  A very large crowd followed the remains to their last resting place.  In their irreparable loss the brothers and sisters have the sympathy of their many friends.
