OBITUARY ~ GEORGE KINDBLADE
April 07, 1869 ~ November 01, 1934

George Kindblade, son of G.A. and Elizabeth Kindblade, was born near Mt. Ayr, IA, April 7, 1869, and departed this life at his home in Leon, IA, November 1, 1934, his age being 65 years. He grew to manhood in Ringgold County where he obtained his early education, going later to Creston where he attended business college and prepared for the teaching profession. He served as teacher in the public schools of his home county for twelve years.

On Nov. 23, 1894, he was united in marriage to Miss Ella Sackett. One daughter, Alma, was born to this union.

In 1903 he entered the U.S. postal service and continued in this work for almost 30 years, retiring when he reached the age limit a little over two years ago. Shortly after he entered the service he received a regular run from St. Joseph to Creston. Later he was appointed to the Chariton and St. Joseph run, and later to the Des Moines and Cainsville line, where he continued to work for some 20 years. During all of this time he never missed a day from his work on account of sickness. He and his family moved to Leon in 1912 because it was located most conveniently for his work and has continued to make his home there ever since.

Mr. Kindblade was a member of the IOOF lodge of Leon and the Modern Woodmen of America Lodge in Mt. Ayr.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother, two brothers and one sister, and is survived by his devoted wife, one daughter, Mrs. Robert Hunt, and one nephew, Elmer Farrier of Chambers, NE.

Early in life he confessed Christ as his Savior and joined the M.E. church and was always interested in the welfare and advancement of the kingdom of his Master. He served as Sunday school superintendent of the Leon Methodist church for 11 years and as a member of the board of trustees for several years. He was always a most loyal member of the church and faithful in the attendance of its services; contributing to its support and recognizing it as one of the most important institutions in the entire community.

Burial was in Rose Hill cemetery at Mt. Ayr.
