Arthur B. Nieland
Arthur Nieland was given a Military memorial rites by Rev. Father E. L. Schleyer at a requiem high mass. The military rites were in charge of Fred F. Bruning Post of the American Legion. Color guards were Edwin Heiman and Ervil Tiefenthaler and color bearers, Frank Hatting and Julius Bohnenkamp. Pallbearers were: Alvin Witwer, Norville Steinkamp, Elmo Knobbe, Edmond Boes, Vincent Boes and Mike Reising. Taps were sounded by George Mumm. Commander Peter Oswald presented Pvt. Nieland's mother with the flag.


Russ Bierl also wrote this short biography of his uncle, Arthur Nieland.
On February 2, 1941, Art Nieland was drafted into the Army. He first traveled to Des Moines and then Ft. Snelling, MN before being transferred to Ft. Francis E. Warren, Wyoming. He was in the Quartermaster Corps and later trained at Ft Douglas near Salt Lake City, Utah.

Art came home for a two week furlough on August 15th, 1941. After his leave he was sent to the Philippine Islands where he served as a fire fighter with the 5th Air Base Group on the Island of Mindanao in the Philippines.

The Philippine Islands were attacked by the Japanese on December 8th, 1941 and Art was taken prisoner on May 25, 1942. He was kept in a POW camp on the islands until August 20th, 1944 when all the prisoners were put on a Japanese ship which left the port of Davao, Mindanao, to be moved out ahead of the advancing American liberation forces. On September 7th, 1944 the Japanese freighter "Shingo Maru" was sailing toward Japan with over 750 American POW's on board. The U.S. submarine U.S.S. Paddle sank the ship with two torpedoes off the Western shore of Mindanao. Only 82 Americans survived the attack. Pvt Arthur Bernard Nieland, #37039730, lost his life that day.

The family was officially notified on February 19, 1945, by letter from the War Department, that Art was killed. While he was a prisoner, the family would kneel together with Arthur’s picture on the table and say the rosary every night after supper. The War Department later sent a Purple Heart decoration award to the family.

A funeral service was held at St. Bernard's Church for Art after the death notification. Ben and Mary Nieland always kept a picture of Art in their living room. The family did not have a group photograph taken before Art was lost. They later took a family picture and had Arts picture inserted in it. The State of Iowa paid Mary Nieland, as Art's mother, a $500 WW II Service Compensation death benefit, which had been voted by the 52nd Iowa General Assembly in 1950.

On Nov 12th, 1978 a flag pole, donated by the Nieland family in memory of Art, was dedicated in St. Bernard's Catholic Cemetery in Breda. Arts name also appears on a monument near the Sac County Court House and his picture hangs in the American Legion building in Breda.

Arthur Bernard Nieland was born on Aug 25, 1918 and died Sep 7th 1944.1
 
Burial*He was buried at St. Bernard Catholic Cemetery, Breda, Carroll County, Iowa; There is a memorial in Breda and his remains are buried at Manila American Cemetery and Memorial, Manila, Philippines.

Irene graduated from St. Bernard School in Breda. Her grandfather, John Henry Nieland emigrated from Westphalia, Germany at age 17 and lived to be 97. He was the oldest man in Carroll County at the time of death with 175 living descendants in 1949.

Irene married Virgil R. Bierl on February 10, 1947 in St. Bernard's Catholic Church in Breda. During the first years of their marriage they farmed near Auburn, Iowa and later Hayfield, Minnesota. In 1951, they assumed ownership of Bierl Locker Plant in St. Benedict, which they operated until 1981. For 30 years Bierl Lockers served the people of Kossuth and Hancock counties with custom slaughter services, cured, and smoked meats. For many years they also operated a hardware and seed-and-feed business. After retirement Irene remained in St. Benedict until Oct. 2011 when she moved to Sioux Falls to be near her daughter Yvonne "Von” Hemmer and family.

Irene grew up in a German-American farm family that retained the traditions of their heritage. She was a supportive wife and taught her children the values of life. Irene leaves a legacy rich in family values, faith, and tradition. She always maintained a large garden, applying her special talents learned from her parents to grow abundant flowers, potatoes, tomatoes, vegetables, raspberries, and strawberries. Irene would preserve her produce and make jam and jellies as Christmas gifts for friends and family.

Irene especially enjoyed spending time with family during the holidays when everyone gathered at the Bierl house. This time was special to her, and her family.

Known as the most accomplished Scrabble player in the family, she was an avid daily crossword puzzle and JUMBLE solver and even influenced other family members to become involved in her passion. Irene’s love of books led her to read nearly every book in the Algona Public Library. She was a member of the St. Benedict Catholic Church, the Ladies Guild, and the Catholic Daughters of America.

When she was 13 years old, Irene contracted Rheumatic Fever and was bed ridden for months, and the doctor treated her at the family farm home. After recovering from the illness the doctor felt that due to the resultant heart murmur she would probably never be strong and would die at a young age. Irene lived to be 94 years old and bore five children including twins.

Survivors include sons, Russell (Dianne) of Ankeny, and Ronald of Nora Springs; daughters, Mary Grohmann (Roger) of Omaha, Nebraska; Margaret Raemisch (Rick) of Waunakee, Wisconsin, and Yvonne Hemmer (Dave) of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; as well as 16 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren. Her surviving brother and sisters include, Paul Nieland (Connie) of Breda, Jolene Jensen of Anamosa, Charlotte Carter of Alta, and sister-in- law Della Nieland of Manson.

Irene was preceded in death by her husband of fifty years, Virgil R. Bierl, her parents Bernard and Mary (Grote) Nieland, a brother Arthur, who was killed while a Japanese Prisoner of War in WWII, her sister Florence Evers and husband Bob Evers of Sac City, brothers Pat Nieland of Manson and Cyril Nieland and wife Barb of Sac City, brother-in-law Ken Carter of Alta, Bill Jensen of Anamosa and grandson Douglas Bierl (son of Russ).

Irene Bierl was a wonderful mother, wife, sister, grandmother, and friend who will never be replaced in our hearts. Thankfully we hold onto the promise that "In Christ we will have eternal life."

Oak Crest Funeral Services, Algona, Iowa, is in charge of arrangements.
