Gerhard Wilhelm Mueller: 1904 – 1970

Although he had been a hardy person for most of his life, Gerhard’s health began to fail in the late 1960’s. Obesity, swelling in the extremities and possibly congestive heart disease or undiagnosed pre-diabetes led him occasionally to the Wunderdoktoren in Fargo. The obituary ran in the Becker County Record on Thursday, September 10, 1970, page 5. (See note below.)

Gerhard's obituary

A note on the obituary: The obituary ran in the Becker County Record on Thursday, September 10, 1970, page 5. There are couple errors. Gerhard actually arrived in northern Minnesota in 1948; his failed tenure at Tenstrike and Blackduck is ignored. His sister Adelheid was Mrs. Hilbert Nickel, not Mrs. Henry.
