Death8 April 1933Edwin Klemme died on 8 April 1933 at LeMars, Plymouth, Iowa, at age 46 Edwin Klemme, a well known farmer of Preston township and a son of Mr. and Mrs. August Klemme, of this city, passed away quite suddenly at LeMars, Saturday afternoon, April 8, 1933, of hemorrhage of the brain, aged 46 years, 6 months and 10 days. 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. -----------------------------------
Edwin Klemme, aged 46, life long resident of Plymouth County, and well known farmer in Preston township, expired suddenly while in LeMars on Saturday on business. 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.
Mr. Klemme was born and lived in Plymouth County all his life. He is survived by his wife, who before her marriage was Miss Bubbs, of Spink, S.D., and two sons, Walter and Erwin, and a daughter, Lulu. He is also survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. August Klemme, of Akron, and two brothers, Harry Klemme, of Chatsworth, and Alfred Klemme, of Johnson township. He was a nephew of Henry Buehre residing at 121 Fourth Avenue SW, this city.
The funeral will be held from the residence Wednesday afternoon at 1:30. Services will be held in the Swedish Lutheran Church in Akron at 2:30 and interment made in the cemetery at Crathorne where a brother is buried.

The pastor, Rev. F. A. Meske, officiated, conducting the nuptial service in English. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Lydia Bubs, and the groom by his brother, Elmer Klemme. Miss Frances Meske played the wedding march, "Bridal Chimes." The bride was most becomingly attired in white messaline, with pearl and silver trimming, and wore a tulle veil and wreath of orange blossoms. Her maid was gowned in white allover net embroidery. Following the ceremony, a sumptuous wedding dinner was partaken of by the near relatives of the contracting parties at the home of the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Aug. Klemme, of this city. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Bubs, near Spink, S.D. She is a young woman of pleasant personality and is endowed with many useful attainments. For the past two years she has been employed in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bonney, of this place, during which time she has also been ticket seller at the Majestic theatre. The groom has gained the high respect and confidence of the entire community by his upright character and industrious habits. He has conducted a photograph studio and the Majestic theatre in this city during the past four or five years and has made a
success in these lines. Both young people are deservedly popular in a wide circle of friends, who offer congratulations and wishes for a long and happy life companionship. Mr. and Mrs. Klemme at once began housekeeping in rooms adjoining the photographic studio.
Mr. Klemme gave a free show at the Majestic Tuesday evening on behalf of himself and bride, and a large number of people accepted and enjoyed their hospitality.

Death10 December 1969Alfred August Klemme died on 10 December 1969 at Akron, Plymouth, Iowa, at age 75 Alfred H. Klemme departed this life at the Akron hospital last Wednesday morning, December 10, 1969, following an illness of many weeks duration. He was 75 years of age.

Alfred Henry Klemme was born at Akron, Iowa, July 8, 1894. He was baptized August 5, 1894. Later he was confirmed in St. John's Lutheran Church, Preston Township, Akron, April 4, 1909. On February 20, 1917, he was united in marriage to Miss Rosina Bubs at a wedding service in the Trinity Lutheran Church in Akron. Pastor F. A. Meske officiated.

Alfred and Rose celebrated the Golden Anniversary of their marriage in Immanuel church on February of 1967. They lived much of their married life on the farm home east of Akron, until moving into Akron in 1952. He had lived in Akron since that time. Alfred was remembered not only as a farmer, but also as a photographer, an operator of the Norka Theater and as a television repairman. Alfred was well informed on many subjects and was a versatile, efficient workman in whatever he undertook. His willingness to help wherever he was needed caused him to be well known and well liked.

In June of 1925, he and his wife became members of Immanuel and had been active members throughout their lives. Alfred thought highly of his church and of his Savior and showed this in various ways, such as serving in any way he could.

Among those who survive to mourn his departure are: his son, Gordon; his brother, Harry, both of Akron; four grandchildren, other relatives and many friends. His wife preceded him in death in August of 1967, and his son, Wilmer, in March of 1963. Two brothers and his sister also preceded him in death.

Funeral service at Immanuel Lutheran Church were held Friday afternoon, December 12, with Pastor David J. Roy, officiating.
