Mr. Klemme had gone to the county seat with his cousin, Alex Klemme, Saturday afternoon on business. After parking their care on the street there, he told his cousin he did not feel very well and would sit in the car while he did some trading. Shortly afterward he got out of the car and went into a store, where he was taken violently ill. A doctor was hastily called, but before his arrival Mr. Klemme expressed a desire to be taken to the office of Dr. J. Johnson, a chiropractor. He was taken there and given aid by Dr. Johnson, Dr. G.A. Mauer and Dr. W. W. Larsen, but failed to rally. Although suffering from violent nausea, he summoned sufficient strength to indicate to the doctors he was undergoing severe pains in his head and neck. He suddenly collapsed and passed away in a few minutes. Edwin Klemme was born September 28, 1886, on his parents farm in Preston township, Plymouth County, Iowa, and resided there all his life. He was baptized and confirmed in the Preston Township Lutheran Church. On September 29, 1910, he was united in marriage with Miss Anna bubs, of Union county, S.D., and two sons and one daughter, Walter, Lulu and Erwin came to bless this union. A man of sterling character and industrious habits, a kind and devoted husband and father, son and brother, a valued and helpful neighbor and friend, he held the high esteem and respect of a wide circle of acquaintances. Besides his widow, three children and his parents, he is survived by two brothers, Harry and Alfred Klemme, both of Akron vicinity. One sister and one brother preceded him in death. The community tenders its sincere sympathy to the relatives so suddenly and sadly bereaved. After a brief service at the home, the funeral was held Wednesday afternoon in Immanuel Lutheran Church in Akron, where a large concourse of relatives and friends gathered to pay a final tribute of respect. The scripture reading and prayer was by Rev. W. E. Smith, of the Plymouth Presbyterian Church. The sermon was by Rev. C. W. Samuelson, whose text was from Deuteronomy 29:29. The singing was by a quartet comprised of Louise Anfinson, Lulu Claassen, Waldon Johnson and Russell Hultgren. Interment was in Plymouth Presbyterian church cemetery in Johnson township. Relatives from a distance in attendance at the funeral were: Wm. Hinrichs, Ernest Hinrichs, Chas. Klemme, Vernon Boshner, and Ernest Schrage, of Crete, Ill; Mrs. Art Rehborg, Wallace Frerichs and Gilbert Rehborg, of Harris, Iowa. -----------------------------------

Mr. Klemme was accompanied by a cousin, Alex Klemme. On arriving in town after parking their car, Mr. Klemme told his cousin he did not feel very well and would sit in the car for awhile. A few minutes later Mr. Klemme went into the Sieverding-Walz store where he was taken violently ill. An emergency call was sent for a doctor. While awaiting the arrival of a physician, Mr. Klemme expressed a wish to be taken to the office of Dr. J. Johnson. He was given aid by Dr. Johnson, Dr. G. A. Mauer and Dr. W. W. Larsen, but failed to rally. On entering the office of Dr. Johnson, he was in a serious condition. After vomiting violently, he had strength enough to indicate to the doctors that he was suffering from pains in his neck and head. He collapsed and died in a few minutes.
