Ralph Jacober --  1970

       Funeral services for Ralph Jacober were held Monday, Oct. 12, at the Hendricks Chapel in Burlington with the Rev. Earl Martell, pastor of Immanuel's Lutheran Church, officiating at the 11 am rites.  Mr. Jacober died Oct. 8, following a period of failing health.
       Song selections were provided by Nelda and Bob Hendricks with Merna Carlin as organist.  Casket bearers were Frank Walters, Dale Mangus, Lawrence Knodel, Chris Schlichenmayer, Doyle Lambert and John Swick.  Final resting place was Fairview Cemetery.
        Ralph Jacober was one of a family of five children born to John and Mary Jacober.  He was born Oct. 24, 1894, at the family homestead north of Burlington and departed life Oct. 8, 1970, at his home in Burlington at the age of 75 years, 11 months and 16 days.
       Ralph's life was devoted to farming and ranching until entering the Army in 1917.  He was wounded in the Battle of Metz near Paris, France, and received an honorable discharge in February 1919.  He returned home to take over the homestead of his brother, John, who had died while serving with the Army during World War I.
       On Feb. 11, 1925, Ralph was united in marriage to Ethel Geobel and to this marriage one daughter, Helen, was born.  Ralph continued his work on the homestead until March 1966 when, due to health reasons, he retired and moved to Burlington.  He took great pride in his farm and home, ever planting or improving.
       He was a baptized, confirmed and faithful member of Immanuel's Lutheran Church, as well as a 50-year member of the American Legion and as also a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
      He was preceded in death by his parents, 2 brothers, John and Chris, and 1 sister, Louise.  He is survived by his wife, Ethel, and daughter, Helen Young of Calhan, his son-in-law, Dale Young, and 3 grandsons, Bruce, Gregg and Steve Young; 1 sister Anna Brunemeier, and many other relatives and friends.
