Meint Huisman Wellsburg Stock Breeder Is Dead
Death Came Monday Afternoon At Iowa Falls Hospital; He Was Sick But A Few Days With Flu.
Meint J. Huisman, well known throughout central Iowa as a successful stock breeder, died at Ellsworth hospital, Iowa Falls, at 3 'clock Monday afternoon. Intestinal flu was the cause. He was confined to his home but a few days. A week before his death he was attending the business matters in town. His condition was not regarded as serious until Sunday when a doctor attended him. The doctor the next morning advised that he be taken to the hospital and he was removed to Iowa Falls in the forenoon. The end came for him a few hours later.
Mr. Huisman was 48 years old. He was a son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Huisman. He was born on the Huisman farm three miles north of Wellsburg and resided there all of his life. After his parents moved to Wellsburg, Meint remained on the home farm and operated the place in partnership with his father. The Huisman farm has for years been known among cattle breeders in central Iowa as an outstanding stock farm.
The Huisman herd of Shorthorn cattle was widely known throughout the state. The herd was established by the elder Huisman and during the past twenty years it had been continued by the son, who proved his worth as a stockman when he carried this herd of purebreds through the bad times when so many similar herds went under the hammer. The Huisman herds for years were shown at central Iowa fairs and they brought home their share of blue ribbons each season.
Leaves Large Family
Mr. Huisman is survived by his widow, six sons and one daughter, all of whom are at home. The sons are Herbert, Eugene, Lester, Eldon, Ralph and Mayo. The daughter's name is Wanda. All of the children are at home. Other surviving relatives are his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Huisman, four sisters and one brother. The sisters are Mrs. Earl Greany and Mrs. Jack Fischer from Wellsburg, Mrs. R. H. Renken of Pleasant Valley township and Mrs. C. H. Evans of Decatur, Iowa. The brother, Frank, resides at Wellsburg.
Funeral services will be at Wellsburg Thursday afternoon.
