OBITUARY - MELVIN LEONARD DRAEGER

Melvin L. DRAEGER, 83, of Mount Ayr, Iowa, a former Webster City, Iowa resident, died Tuesday, November 23, 1999 at his home.

Melvin Leonard DRAEGER, son of Albert and Pearl (WELCH) DRAEGER, was born November 30, 1915 on a farm east of Clarion, Iowa. He was educated in Wright and Hamilton counties and graduated from Lincoln high school in Webster City. During World War II he served with the U. S. Army. He married Margaret LUKEHART. He had been a plumber for over 50 years and because his work required him to move often, he had resided in Webster City and many other communities in Iowa, including Mount Ayr.

He is survived by his wife, Margaret; daughters and son-in-law, Janet and Ron McCUTCHEN of Fort Dodge, Iowa, Joyce DRAEGER of Springfield, MO and Evelyn BALL of Des Moines; son and daugher-in-law Robert and Kathy DRAEGER of Webster City; eight grandchildren, six great-grandchildren; brother Marvin DRAEGER of Webster City; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by a son, Glen DRAEGER; his parents, Albert and Pearl; a grandson Todd DRAEGER; and brother Raymond DRAEGER.

He was a member of the Plumber and Steam Fitters Local #33 of Des Moines.

Graveside services were held Monday, November 29, 1999 at the Cass Township Cemetery with Gerald CAQUELIN officiating.

Foster Funeral Home of Webster City was in charge of the arrangements.
