Mr. Ollie Dumpert and Miss Minnie Becker were married at the Catholic church Wednesday morning by Rev. Fr. McDonald, in the presence of a large number of friends and relatives. A reception was held in the evening for the happy pair at the home of the bride's mother, north of town, where numerous guests were entertained with old-fashioned German hospitality.
Aloysius Dumpert was born near Friend, Nebraska June 26, 1882 and died July 7, 1934 at the age of 52 years and 11 days.
His entire life was spent in the vicinity of Exeter and Friend. On January 23, 1907, he was united in marriage to Minnie Becker. To this union, five children: Walter, Dorothy, Ralph, Donald and Bernice, were born.
His character, built on the finest traits, coupled with his exceptional business ability, made him the influential man his family and his friends knew. His career was suddenly interrupted two years ago, when he suffered a nervous collapse, from which he never recovered.
Besides the immediate family, Mr. Dumpert leaves one grandchild, two brothers, Adam of Exeter and John of O'Neill; five sisters, Kate Rayer, Kundigundia Ruhl, Barbara Becker, and Rose Bacon of Exeter and Anna Kersenbrock of Crete.
The funeral was held Monday morning at 9:30 at the St. Stephen's Catholic Church, conducted by Father Boll. Interment was in the Exeter Cemetery.
Out-of town relatives attending the funeral: Mr. and Mrs. John Dumpert, O'Neill; Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kersenbrock, Crete; Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Jansen, O'Neill; Mrs. Chris Judge, Atkinson; Mr. and Mrs. H.
