HOLLANDER, Alfred Thomas
Alfred Hollander Answers the Call
One of Soldier Township's Most Prosperous Farmers Died Nov. 11, 1922
Pneumonia Cause of Death - Born on August 30, 1885 in Hayes Township, Ida County
Schleswig, Nov. 16 - Once more it befalls our sad lot to chronicle the death of another one of our respected and beloved citizens, Alfred T. Hollander, which sad event occurred at his late home in Soldier township, Saturday morning, November 11, 1922, at 6:15 a.m. after an illness extending over a period of four weeks, death resulting from pneumonia.

Mr. Hollander was but in the prime of life, having reach the age of 37 years, and his death has cast a deep gloom over the entire community. He was a young man, of quiet disposition, a kind and true friend, a devoted husband and father, and possessed that pleasing disposition that won to him a host of friends.

Alfred T. Hollander was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. P. Hollander. He was born Aug. 30, 1885, on the old home farm in Hayes township, Ida County. Here he grew to young manhood and spent the greater part of his life helping his father with the farm work. He was a true Christian and a staunch member of the Lutheran church, in which faith he was baptized on May 26, 1886, and confirmed March 31, 1901, by pastor M. J. VonderAu.

On February 22, 1911, he was united in marriage to Miss Mamie Marquardt at Denison, Iowa and to them were born two children, one of whom preceded the father to the Great Beyond. He leaves to mourn his untimely death, his wife and one daughter, Vernette, eight years old, his parents, and four brothers, Henry, Max, Gustave and Theodore.

Short funeral services were held at his late home at 1:00 o'clock Tuesday, Nov. 14, after which the remains were brought to Immanuel Lutheran church in Schleswig where services were conducted by Rev. O. Lossner, and the remains taken to Morgan township cemetery for interment. The funeral was one of the largest held here for some time. An attendance that filled the church to overflowing being present to pay their last sad respects to the emory of this promising young man. The floral tributes were also many and beautiful, the casket being almost hidden from view by the huge banks of flowers, which testified to the honor and esteem in which he was held by all.

The Leader joins with the host of friends of the stricken wife and daughter, the parents and other relatives of the deceased in extending deepest sympathy and consolation in this sad hour of sorrow. It is sad indeed to lose one whom we love and honor, but life on earth is ever thus, and even though he is now laid away, the thought of the good deeds he performed while on earth, will linger long in the memory of those whom he has left behind, and will be treasured by them in the years that are to come. We therefore refer the relatives to Him who doeth all things for the best, for comfort and consolation.
