Henry G. Nieland Instantly Killed
Injuries Received In a Fall Down Stairs of Legion Hall Fatal to Breda Resident
A LIFELONG RESIDENT HERE


Henry G. Nieland was instantly killed last Thursday evening, February 26, at about nine o’clock when he fell down the flight of steps leading to the Legion hall. Mr. Nieland had gone up to attend a meeting of the Wheatland Township Farm Bureau and poultry demonstration. During the course of the meeting he decided to go down stairs and just as he stepped down on the first step he lost his balance and fell to the bottom. Those who heard him fall rushed to his assistance and he was immediately taken to the office of Dr. Van Camp where an examination revealed that life was extinct. Mr. Nieland received a number of bruises about the face and body and a bad scalp wound caused concussion of the brain.

Henry G. Nieland was born on a farm in Sac county northwest of Breda June 4, 1876, and had been a resident of Breda and vicinity all his life. During his early years he worked on the farm for his parents and neighbors in that vicinity. During the past 20 years he put in his time at various occupations dehorning cattle, erecting windmills and other farm machinery, digging wells and housemoving. He was busy most of the winter at his various occupations and his services always were in great demand. He was a good mechanic and was often called upon by farmers to assist them in various ways.

Besides his aged father and step-mother the deceased is survived by one brother, F.J. Nieland of near Breda; two sisters, Mrs. Ferdinand Steinkamp [Mary] of near Breda; and Mrs. Margaret Mueggenborg of Okarche, Oklahoma; five half-brothers and five half-sisters who are: Wm. Nieland of near Carroll, Ben A. Nieland, Joe Nieland, Louis Nieland and Herman Nieland of near Breda; Mrs. Joe Wittrock [Rose] of Okarche, Oklahoma, Sister M. Sigmunda [Mary Magdalene] of Bozeman, Mont; Sister M. Florina [Elizabeth] of LaCrosse, Wis; Mrs. Arthur Braun [Bertha] of Alton; and Mrs. Jacob Wittry, Jr.[Anna] of near Glidden.

The death of Mr. Nieland comes as a great shock to his aged father, sisters and brothers as well as other relatives and friends. Here again we have evidence of how rapidly a life can be snuffed out. As he passed through the door he was full of life and energy and less than thirty seconds afterwards he had entered into his final sleep.

Funeral services were held Saturday morning at nine o’clock with the requiem high mass conducted by Rev. B. Eischeid, and were largely attended. Burial took place in the Catholic cemetery. The pallbearers were his six brothers: Frank, Wm. Ben A. Joe, Louis, and Herman Nieland.

Relatives and friends from a distance who came to attend the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Wittry, Jr., of Glidden; Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Braun of Alton; Wm. Nieland and children. Mr. and Mrs. F.J. Schelle, Mrs. Herman Berning of Carroll; Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Schulte, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Bosold of Early; Mr. and Mrs. John Knobbe, Miss Rose Koster of Willey; Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kohorst of Arcadia; J. P. McLaughlin of Wall Lake.3

Judy attended San Jose State College School of Nursing in 1965. She later returned to college and in 1981 earning her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from California State University at Fullerton with a major in accounting.

Judy will be remembered as a smart, witty, tender, caring, loving and devoted wife, mother, and homemaker. She was married to Donald M. Pappe on July 31, 1965 in the Kingsley Field Air Force Base Chappell in Klamath Falls, Oregon. After Don's discharge from the Air Force in 1967, Judy, Don and their baby daughter Deborah moved to Bellflower, California. In 1974, they moved into a new home in Whittier where they have resided since.

As a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Financial Planner, Judy owned and managed her own accounting practice in Fullerton, California for 20 years. Judy provided accounting and tax services for clients throughout California as well as across the country and abroad. She was a member or California Society of CPA's and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts. Judy was also an active member of the Fullerton Rotary Club.

Judy was a 20 year member of the Whittier branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). She held many leadership positions in the branch including its Presidency, Membership VP, Educational Foundation VP, Treasure, and Auditor, in addition to being an active member of many committees. She and her husband were active in AAUW's La Cuisine Gourmet Group for many years.

An AAUW Educational Foundation Research and Projects Grant was established in her name to be used to sponsor women's education and local community projects. Judy is also a member of AAUW's Legacy Circle.

Throughout Judy's life she was an avid reader, enjoyed the arts, was an accomplished seamstress, and a gourmet cook who enjoyed entertaining. She loved traveling throughout the USA and abroad, as well as motor homing, boating, water skiing, and snow skiing. She would even put on "leather's" to ride on Don's Harley.

She loved tending her garden. One of Judy's favorite sayings was: "To Plant a Garden Is To Believe In Tomorrow". She knew the name of almost every plant under the sun. She especially loved the English-garden look so when she and Don remodeled their garden in 2002, she carefully designed one for their yard. She tenderly maintained her colorful displays of many varieties of roses, annuals, climbing vines, as well as her many different herbs and fruit trees. She also designed and planted many beautiful Fairy Gardens for her home and friends. She passed on the art of making Fairy Gardens to her daughter.

Judy is survived by her loving husband and lifelong friend, Don, her loving daughter, Deborah and son-in-law [w/h], and her brother James Shott. She is preceded in death by her parents Bettie and Harry Shott and her sister Susie Cordill.
