FRED LANGREDER DIES: FUNERAL SERVICES TODAY

Frederick Langreder obit 1The departed, Frederick Henry Langreder, son of Henry and Louise (nee Ristenpart), both deceased, was born, Dec. 19, 1863, on a farm south-east of Beecher. Soon after birth, he was baptized, and later, following a course of thorough religious instruction, he was confirmed by the Rev. E. Keuchen in St. John’s Evangelical and Reformed Church. On Oct. 9, 1889, he was united in marriage with Alvina Jessen at St. Paul’s Church, Rev. A.H. Brauer officiating. This union was blessed with two children, Walter, of Aurora, and Clara, who passed away at the age of eight years.

On June 28, 1895, a great sorrow overshadowed his life and happy home when the loving wife and mother, after a brief illness, was called to her heavenly rest. The sun, however, broke through the clouds again when his deceased wife’s sister, Miss Marie Jessen, was urged by love and trust to become his wife and the mother of his children, the marriage being preformed in the home, June 2, 1897, by Rev. G. Koch. This happy union was blessed with three children, Charles, who passed away at the age of 28 years, March 12, 1928, Alice Marie, now Mrs. Frank Leder, and Mildred, who passed away suddenly, Oct. 2, 1932. In 1904, while living in Roseland, he became a member of Bethel Evangelical and Reformed Church, where he and his family worshiped regularly until they returned to Beecher. Roseland Historic FarmIn the early 1890’s, the departed conducted a dairy on 112th Street, Roseland. Following this, he was employed for ten years by the Plano Mfg. Co., at West Pullman as an expert binder builder. Severing his connection with this company, he found employment with the Pullman Palace Car Co., where he became an outstanding truck builder for the

Pullman sleepers. His health beginning to fail, he followed his doctor’s advice and retired from his usual labors. Loving the country, the fresh air and sunshine, he sold his beautiful home in Roseland and, on March 6, 1918, moved with his family to a small farm that he had acquired near the place where he was born. More or less ill for many years, he gradually developed a severe case of sclerosis of the arteries, needing much care and attention, which he received at the hands of his family, especially his devoted wife. Fully realizing that his earthly days were numbered, he finally slipped into a coma from which he never rallied, coming to his peaceful death, Monday, July 29, at 1:30 p.m., at the age of 76 years, 5 months and 10 days. He leaves to mourn his departure, his wife, two children, already mentioned, four grandchildren, two sisters, three brothers, four half-sisters, and a host of other relatives and friends.

Frederick Langreder obit 2Funeral services were conducted on Thursday, Aug. 1, 1940, beginning at 2 o’clock at the Hack Funeral Home, where Rev. G. Horst of St. Luke’s spoke in fitting words to a large gathering of relatives and friends, Two appropriate solos were rendered by Miss Dora Baldauf of Roseland, a friend of the family, accompanied on the piano by Mrs. Frank Hunte. Interment was in the Beecher Mausoleum.

The departed, always a true loving husband and father, and loyal in the things taught him, and in the service of his Master until the above mentioned illness more and more firmly embedded itself, so lived that his bereaved loved ones may well hope and trust that his frequently expressed wish and desire to be with those gone before has been happily realized.

Charles Langreder obit 1

CHARLES LANGREDER, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Langreder, residing at the Delite Inn, south of Beecher, died at 8:45 o’clock, Monday evening, of pneumonia, aged 28 years. The young man has been an invalid since birth.

CARL CHRISTIAN LANGREDER

Charles Langreder obit 2Charlie, as he was fondly known, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Langreder, was born July 12, 1899, at Roseland. Fearing that he might not live, he was baptized when a week old. This fear, however, did not materialize and although physically handicapped, Charles was given and made use of every opportunity of gaining a thorough education, and being gifted mentally he succeeded in rising above the average of his age. Always deeply religious, Sunday school attendance and confirmation instruction substituted for him many of the things which he had to forgo in life. The day of his confirmation at Bethel Church always stood out in his life as a day of days. In 1918, he came with his parents to Beecher, locating two and one-half miles south of Beecher, where Charlie grew into clean and exemplary manhood. In his kind and satisfied way, he tried and succeeded to surround himself and those he loved with the sunshine of a happy disposition. Ever since the death of his grandmother – Mother “Christina” Jessen – a deep-seated cold gradually sapped his strength and, although given the best of medical attention and faithful loving service on the part of his parents, he answered the call of his Master at 8:45 o’clock, Monday evening, March 12, at the age of 28 years and 8 months. He leaves to mourn, beside his sorrowing parents, one brother, Walter, Aurora, IL; two sisters, Alice, (Mrs. Frank Leder) and Mildred, Beecher.

Funeral services were conducted, Friday, March 16, at 1 o’clock at the Delite Inn and 1:30 st St. Luke’s Church where Rev. G. Horst gave a touching sermon and Rev. John Goebel of Roseland, who confirmed him, also spoke feelingly of the departed. Many floral pieces, expressing sympathy and esteem, bedecked the casket. He was laid at rest in the Beecher Mausoleum.

The departed, although placed in great tribulation, nevertheless triumphed over many obstacles, and on account of his deep Christian nature always proved himself a loving, dutiful son and brother and faithful friend to those who knew him.
