Jakel, Charles W. #3 (6 NOV 1881 - 6 FEB 1951)

Charles William Jakel was placed in his final resting place at Pine Hill Cemetery Friday, Feb. 9th, 1951. He had passed away at his farm home in the Town of Hoard (Clark Co., Wis.) on Feb. 6, 1951, suffering from a heart condition. Services were held at the Peace Evangelical and Reformed Church in Curtiss with the Rev. F. P. Puhlman reading the final rites.

Serving as pallbearers were Henry Johnson, John Michlig, Henry House, Walter Leuth, Henry Peterson and Melvin Ostenson.

Friends were shocked to learn of the death even though they knew that he had been ill at various times by a heart condition. But previous to his death he had been feeling quite well.

Charles William Jakel was born on Nov. 6, 1882 at Braidwood, Ill. He moved to this community as a young man and had resided here for nearly 40 years. On Dec. 13, 1913, in the Town of Mayville, Clark County, he was united in marriage to Anna Wasmuth (Wachsmuth?). The couple was blessed with nine children, six sons, Arnold of Milwaukee; Robert, who attends Coe College at Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Carl, Dale and Dennis, who are at home. One son, Elmer, preceded him in death on Oct. 24, 1949; three daughters, Mrs. H. H. (Elaine) Hermanson, Brook, Ind.; Mrs. Paul (Lucille) Stiner, Kingfisher, Okla.; and Beatrice who is at home. He is also survived by his wife and one brother, William of Dorchester, Wis. One sister, Anna, preceded him in death.

He had always been a pillar in community affairs, having held an office in the Curtiss PTA and served on the Consistory of the Pearce Reformed Church for 19 years, and had just recently been re-elected to that position. For several years he has also served as member of the Board of Education.

Since coming to this community he had always made his home on a farm, but farming was secondary to him, as his real ambitions vested in a hobby of his - that of being an apiarist. He first started working and studying the habits of bees when he was a youngster, 12 years of age. He was still interested in his hobby and only recently had turned the farming responsibilities over to his son Carl.
