PFC. E. Langemeier Death Reported

With the war over, and therefor the most natural conclusion that
greater danger to our men in service also now over, and with
relatives looking hopefully forward to the safe return of loved
ones from the former battle areas, another Hooper family has been
called upon to mourn the death of a man in uniform who will never
return to his homeland.

Mrs. George Langemeier, mother of Pfc. Elmer Langemeier, received
the dread message from the War Department last Thursday morning
informing her that her soldier son had passed away Aug. 15 in
Germany of a throat infection.  The family immediately contacted
the service man's young wife, who has been having employment and
living in Omaha while awaiting her husband's return from more than
two years of overseas service.

Since his entry into service, Pfc. Langemeier and his wife had
always kept Hooper as his home address, and consequently the War
Department message was sent here to the mother.

Pfc. Langemeier was born June 19, 1919, while the family were
farming in Holt county and was therefore 26 years of age at the
time of his death on Aug. 15, 1945.  The family moved to the
Monnich farm north of Hooper the spring after Elmer's birth and
here he lived for 21 years, attending school and growing to young
manhood.  On March 19, 1941, he was united in marriage to Miss
Mathilda Vogel of West Point and the young couple lived in this
community, except for a time while he was employed in construction
work in the building of Camp Crowder, Mo., until he entered service
May 25, 1942.

Pfc. Langemeier's army training in the states included bases in
California, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York before shipping to
England, where he landed at Liverpool and trained for 9 months
prior to the invasion of Europe by the allied forces.

Landing with the first troops on French soil on D-Day, the 3rd
Armored division of the First Army, 69th Headquarters Battery of
which Elmer was a member, saw action in many major battles as the
American forces swept through France and on to Germany for the
triumphal climax of the war's end.

After V-E Day he wrote his wife that he might be kept overseas for
some months but his letters also spoke hopefully of the longed-for
day of homecoming until suddenly they ceased coming, greatly to the
worry of his wife, his mother and others of the family.

At the present time particulars of his last illness and death,
other than as briefly stated in the death message, have not been
received.  A short letter from an army chaplain at the 85th
Evacuation hospital stated that Pfc. Langemeier had been laid to
rest in a U. S. military cemetery at St. Avold, France, 25 miles
east of Metz and 40 miles northeast of Nancy.  The bereaved family
is now awaiting further word in hopes of learning something of the
last illness of their loved one. Since the word of her husband's
death Mrs. Langemeier has been with a sister at Wisner and with her
husband's mother here at Hooper.

Other surviving relatives besides the wife and mother are six
brother, John, Ed, Arnold and Gilbert, all of Hooper; Walter of
Nickerson and Wilbert of Snyder.  Also a sister, Mrs. Norman Keller
of Hooper.  An infant daughter, his father, one brother and a
sister preceded him in death.hhw

Hooper Man Dies of Car Injuries

Family and friends of George Langemeier, retired Hooper farmer,
were grieved and shocked when it became known early Tuesday morning
that he had passed away at 6 o'clock from the effects of injuries
received the previous afternoon when he was struck by an automobile
while walking west with his son, John, on the paved highway near
the Basler service station.

The fatal accident occurred around 3:30 Monday afternoon when
Walter Gosker of Washington county, driving in the same direction
that the two men were walking, attempted to pass them.  According
to all reports, Gosker is exonerated from blame, since he was
driving at a medium rate and sounded his horn as a signal that he
would pass.  It is believed that Mr. Langemeier became confused,
stepping directly into the pathway of the oncoming car and
sustaining shock and injuries from which he could not rally.

George Bernard Langemeier, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Herman
Langemeier, was born April 9, 1873, at Rising Sun, Ind., and died
at Hooper, Nebr., October 28, 1941, aged 68 years, 6 months and 19
days. He came to Nebraska with his parents in 1882 and settled on a
farm northwest of Hooper in which neighborhood he lived almost
continuously excepting for one year at Central City and three years
at Atkinson, moving to Hooper from the farm when he retired last

He was united in marriage to Miss Bertha Stover on May 25, 1899,
and to their union a family of ten children were born, two dying in
infancy. Surviving to mourn the sudden and tragic death of a
beloved husband and father are his widow, one daughter and seven
sons.  They are, John, Edwin, Elmer and Clara (Mrs. Norman Keller),
all of Hooper, Walter and Arnold of Nickerson, Gilbert of Scribner,
and Wilbert of Snyder; two brothers, William of Plainview and Harry
of Hartington; two sisters, Mrs. Clara Schiemmeier of West Point
and Mrs. Louisa Nieman of Perham, Minn.  Thirteen grandchildren
also survive as well as a host of friends who had learned to trust
and respect him thru out the years.

A member of St. John Lutheran church over a period of 21 years, Mr.
Langemeier was faithful to the doctrines and teachings of his faith
and it is at this church, St. John's northwest of Hooper, that the
funeral services will be held this Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock
following the 1:30 service at the home.

Rev. Theo. Norden, pastor of St. John's, will be the officiating
clergyman, and Wollmer & Warne are in charge of arrangements.
Interment will be in the church cemetery.hhw

Wilbert Langemeier (10-15-'13/1-13-'89), son of George and Bertha
(Stover) Langemeier, was born southeast of Hooper. His wife, Hazel
Engelbrecht Langemeier (5-12-'14), daughter of Herman and Anna
(Kraatz) Engelbrecht was born in Snyder. Wilbert and Hazel were
married April 24, 1940 at St. Peter's L.C., Snyder, by Rev. Paul G.

Their children include, Gary (7-24-'41) married to Jeannette Spies
on Aug. 1, 1959; Rodger (8-4-'44) married to DeAnna King on June
26, 1965; Judy (8-19-'49) married to Ted Ilten on June 30, 1973.

Wilbert and Hazel, now retired, live on a farm 3/4 mile north of
Prenzlow Meats.  Farming has been their business since 1941.  The
parents of Hazel purchased the farm from Emil Brunke, the date not
being remembered.  Wilbert's main love was raising purebred
registered Duroc hogs competively.

Both Wilbert and Hazel have been active in their church, St.
Peter's Lutheran, since marriage.  Throughout their married years,
they have actively participated in; LWML, Ladies Aid, Bible study,
financial secretary, LLL, and school board member for the Lutheran
elementary school.  They are supporters of the Senior Citizen
Nutrition Site.  All three children were active in 4-H, sports, and
other related school activities while being raised on the farm.

Wilbert and Hazel moved to Snyder, after living their fist year of
marriage in Rogers, in 1941 to pursue farming, as wished by both
their families.   Greatest joy for Wilbert was the success with the
purebred registered Durocs during his prime of life.  He has
numerous trophies and ribbons as proof of his accomplishments.
Hazel's joy came from nursing the sick and writing news for the
Dodge Criterion.  Her nursing duties in her prime of life, include;
hospital at Sutton, hospital for feeble-minded in Beatrice, state
hospital in Lincoln, and Parkview Home in Dodge.

A memorable trip to Hawaii in the 1970's brought both great joy.
They are pleased to have seven grandchildren and two great-
grandchildren. Playing cards (ten point pitch and sheephead) have
always been a favorite source of entertainment for them.
Neighborhood and family get-togethers, local and state fairs, area
club dances also brought them hours of laughter and joy.  Hardships
were the Dirty 30's prior to marriage, floods in the 40' and 60's,
and serious surgeries for Wilbert at different times in their
marriage.  Faith, friends, family and humor brought them through
the rough times.  Wilbert was always known for having a quick joke

Their 25th wedding anniversary was celebrated in 1965 with an open
house at St. Peter's Lutheran.hhw
