Cottonwood Chronicle Friday, October 17, 1930


Peter Klapprich, a well known and respected citizen of this place for many years, passed away at his home in the west end of town Sunday evening from a heart attack, his death coming almost without warning. He had been on the street the first of the week but had not been feeling well for two or three days before his death but considered it only a slight indisposition. Sunday afternoon a doctor was called and prescribed for him and he seemed to be resting well until about eight o'clock when his heart became weaker and he died within a short time.
The deceased was born in Germany and came to this country with his parents when quite small. They settled in Wisconsin and resided there for many years, the deceased later marrying there and removing to near Bismarck, N.D., where he resided until coming to Idaho about 25 years ago. For a number of years the family resided on a farm west of town, where two of the sons still live, but a few years ago Mr. and Mrs. Klapprich moved to town and erected a home just west of the business section of the city. The deceased was 80 years, seven months and 25 days of age at the time of his death and is survived by his widow, a daughter, Mrs. Frank Joszkowiak, of Bismarck, N.D., two daughters, Mrs. John Schnider and Mrs. E. Terhaar, of Cottonwood and three sons, Harry, Joe, and Louis of Cottonwood. One daughter Mrs. Tom Gentry died here a number of years ago.
The funeral was held Thursday morning from the local Catholic Church and was largely attended. Interment was made in the local Catholic Cemetery. Funeral arrangements were in charge of Brower-Wann.
