"Transcript of the above obituary"

Title: Alleda Eva Kollmeyer


Alleda Eva Kollmeyer was born in Farmington, MO., the daughter of Henry Kollmeyer and his wife Mary, nee Neidert, In early infancy she was baptized into the holy Christian faith at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, the Rev. G. Toenjes officiating. Her sponsors were Ernest, Adam and Marie Neidert and Louise Lang.

Alleda received her elementary education at St. Paul's Lutheran School and the public schools. March 8, 1903 she confirmed into the Lutheran faith, the Rev. A. L. Rohifing officiating. Her Memory Verse was John 10:27-28. Alleda continued a faithful and devout follower of Christ all the days of her life. She taught Sunday School for more than 25 years, sang in the choir a number of years, and also was a member of the Women's Club of the church for several years.

After graduating from Farmington High School, Alleda attended the Moothart Business College of Farmington. Upon graduation from it she entered the employ of the Bleeke Abstract Company of Farmington and continued with this firm through its various changes during her entire business career. A rather unique detail of Alleda's life is this, that she was born, reared, and lived all of life at one and the same place, 216 East 1st Street in Farmington.

Monday, February 3, 1969, while engaged about the home, she suffered a stroke and was taken to Mineral Area Hospital, where she departed this life in the faith of her Savior Friday afternoon at about 12:30 o'clock.

She leaves to mourn her departure: a niece, Betty (Mr. Charles) Clark of De Soto, MO.; a great-niece, Miss Karen Clark; a great-nephew, Alan Clark; and a number of other relatives and friends. An infant brother and a sister, Mrs. Lourine Wease of De Soto, preceded her into eternity.

Christian funeral services were conducted at 11:45 Sunday morning at the Miller Funeral Home and at 3 o'clock at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, the Rev. B. J. Loesel officiating. James Schifferdecker, accompanied on the organ by Mrs. Mildred Clubb, sang "Rock of Ages" and "Beautiful Savior." Pall-bearers were Lynn Hopkins, W. K. Giessing, Fred, Frank and Raymond Kollmeyer, and Floyd Meyer. Interment was in the family plot of the Odd Fellows Cemetery, Farmington.

Miss Kollmeyer's mother, born at Iron Mountain, was the daughter of Ernest Neidert, who built the house at 216 East First Street which later became the Kollmeyer home. Her father was three years old when his parents came from Germany to settle on a farm in Liberty Township in 1851. After apprenticeship to Lang & Bros., Farmington, manufacturer of wagons, carriages, plows and lumber, he worked as a journeyman blacksmith and wagon maker in this vicinity, including De Soto, then returned to Farmington and became the senior member of Kollmeyer & Neidert, blacksmiths, carriages and wagon makers, undertakers, and manufacturers of farm implements.

Her father was one of the nine men who organized the congregation of St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

Flowers, needlework, reading and music were among Miss Kollmeyer's principal interests. She beautified the spacious grounds of her home with many flowering shrubs and plantings and she had a wide variety of house plants. She was especially skilled in tatting, crocheting, and in making appliqued quilts.

Miss Kollmeyer was known both for her pleasant and cheerful disposition and for her frank comments on matters of interest to her. Though not active in politics, she was strongly Republican.
