George T. and Ella Dowler

"Mrs. Mae Kempf of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is out on a visit with her mother, Mrs. Freelove and sisters of this place."
July 1912 Manning, Iowa
The funeral of Mrs. George P. Kempf was held at the home of J.J. Kempf on Friday morning at 10:30 conducted by Rely. C.W. Hempstead. The remains were brought to Victor from Milwaukee on Thursday. Her death was a shock to the entire community since she had visited here but two weeks before her death and seemed improved. The sympathy of the community is extended to the husband a well known Victor boy, in his great sorrow.
Mae (Freelove) Kempf, was born in Manning, Iowa, June 10, 1883. Here she lived until womanhood, and in 1907 removed with her mother and sisters to Yuma, Colorado, where she was married to George P. Kempf on June 20, 1902, at Victor. They removed to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where Mr. Kempf is employed as a successful draughtsman with the C. M. and St. P. Railroad. She passed away at her home in that city on June 25, after a short illness, though her health had been impaired for several months.
She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, a daughter, Kathryn, her mother, two sisters and two brothers besides other relatives and friends. She had a sunny, happy disposition and made friends readily wherever she lived or chanced to be. A woman of many excellent qualities and will be missed by her friends. In her short life she sought things most "worth while" and the world of God was a source of comfort and help. We do not presume to fathom the mind of Infinitive and with truth we look up and say, "He doeth all things well." The remains were laid to rest in the family lot in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery.
Among those from out of town to attend the funeral were, Mrs. Mary Freelove, Mrs. Cora Dowler, Miss Nettie Burrows, of Yuma, Colorado; Mr. and Mrs. A. Freelove, of Kennebec, South Dakota; Mrs. C. Kempf and Mrs. Minnie Dau, of Manning, Iowa; Mr. and Mrs. N. Yochem, of Persia, Iowa; Mrs. Margaret Schafbuch, of Conroy; Mrs. H.F. Hanson, of Davenport; Mr. and Mrs. Morrison, of Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hanson, and Ed Hanson, of Brooklyn; Mr. and Mrs. P. Schafbuch, Mr. and Mrs. J.
