The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1925

Wm. FRED STETZLER.

Wm. Fred STETZLER, son of W. H. and S. A. STETZLER, was born in McLean county, Illinois, October 14, 1873, and departed this life March 4th, 1925, aged 51 years, four months and twenty days.

The early part of his life was spent in Stark county, Illinois. On September 3, 1902, he was united in marriage to Carrie B. ECKLEY, of near Toulon, Illinois. The following month they moved to Iowa, settling on a farm near Beaconsfield, where they resided until the next spring, when they moved to their present home near Kellerton.

To this union were born four daughters and one son: Pauline Mae, aged 21 years, a teacher in Ringgold county; Lola Sophronia, aged 19 years, a teacher in Mount Ayr; Vesta Vivian, aged 17 years, taking normal training work at Mount Ayr; Maxine Grace, age 15 years and Wilfred Eckley, aged 12 years, both of whom are attending Kellerton high school.

Mr. STETZLER started to live a christian life in early manhood and after moving to Iowa joined the M. E. church at Kellerton, of which he was ever an active member. He particularly enjoyed filling his place in the choir in which work he was especially talented. His temperate life was an example to others and his industrious habits for those depending upon him were untiring.

His health began to fail during the spring of 1923. In the following September he had an operation for malignant tumer; this was thought to be successful but the next summer he became worse and failed rapidly until his death.

Beside the wife and family there are left to mourn his loss three brothers and five sisters, viz: Emma, of Chicago; Charles, of Menahaga, Minn.; Lloyd of Dent, Minn.; Edwin, of Chicago, Ill.; Eva, of Lincolnville, Kan.; Mrs. Lillian FREMER, of Oak Park, Ill.; and the youngest sister, Mrs. Vera BOORD, of Kellerton, Iowa, who has helped care for him during the last illness. Also other relatives and a host of friends who whoed their sympathy by lending a helping hand during the long illness.

Funeral services were conducted by C. E. BENNETT Friday, March 6th, at 10:30 o'clock at the M. E. church at this place and interment made in Maple Row cemetery [Kellerton].

NOTE: Carrie Belle (ECKLEY) was born on March 19, 1876, and died on October 7, 1963. William's father William H. STETZLER was born in 1936, and died in 1908. They were interred at Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton, Ringgold County, Iowa.
