Funeral Services For Albert Wieland
Was Born In Germany In 1879; Came to America In 1881; Settling in Spencer and Then Moved to Unity.
Albert Wieland was born in Germany on January 30, 1879. In early infancy he was baptized, and in 1895 he was confirmed and became a member of the Lutheran church of his parents. As a little lad he emigrated with his parents to America in the year 1881. A very short time was spent in Spencer, after which he moved with his parents to a farm west of the town of Unity. Here he spent his boyhood days as well as his young manhood years. He was married to Tena Ewald on June 11, 1902. To this union two sons were born, Lawrence and Raymond. The family located on a farm one mile west of Unity where they lived until he and his wife moved to Unity some 14 years ago. Soon after coming to Unity he was engaged by the school board as caretaker of the school. This position he held over 11 years. In this capacity he endeared himself to both teachers, students and the school board. He was well fitted and efficient. When the Trinity Lutheran church was re-organized in 1921, he together with his wife, transferred their membership from the Lutheran church at Riplinger to the newly reorganized Lutheran church. The members soon discovered in Mr. Wieland a conscientious and dependable member and was elected as a trustee of the church, which office he held for many years. He also assisted in gathering funds for the rebuilding of Trinity Lutheran church. As a member of the Lutheran church and as a public servant he was both conscientious and faithful and self-sacrificing. He remained a faithful member of Trinity to the end of his life, and in that faith he passed to his eternal rest.
Mr. Wieland enjoyed good health until a year ago, when he underwent a major operation. In spite of this he carried on his duties as a caretaker of the school, until Sunday morning. He was taken to St. Joseph hospital where every means was used to restore him to health and strength. His end came Monday morning, August 7, at the age of 65 years, six months and seven days.
