He was an active member of Immanuel’s Lutheran church. He became ill a month ago, shortly before leaving to visit his daughter.

Lindner, who lives on the home farm, route 5; Mrs. Herman (Anna) Strathmann, Colby; Miss Louise Lindner and Mrs. John (Clara) Schwarze, Dorchester; and Mrs. Walter (Frances) Athens, Marathon.
