Description

The Iowa Staats-Anzeiger reports on the death of Fannie Eiboeck, who died just three days after her husband Joseph. The obituary gives details of the funerals of both individuals. Minnie McFarland and Ms. M. Howard, surviving family members, offer their thanks to those who contributed flowers and attended the funerals.

Of note is that Lafayette Young, Sr., journalist and U.S. senator (1910-11), served as an honorary pall bearer at Joseph Eiboeck's funeral. During World War I, Young served as chair of the State Council of Defense, which was charged with securing crop production and rooting out perceived seditious activity within Iowa. The Council forbade the teaching of German in public schools and was highly suspicious of the German-language press that Eiboeck had championed in Iowa. It is unclear how well Eiboeck and Young knew each other.
