Our sympathy to Betty (Rust) Mulder and her family and the family of Richard Mulder whose funeral was Wednesday, September 12th at the First Baptist Church in Worthington, MN. Pastor Timothy Barr officiated at the service. Pallbearers were grandchildren. Richard was 88 years old and the father of Connie, Bruce, Coleen and Robin, 12 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Richard was a farmer, and served on many boards. He served in the Army in WW II and one of his greatest joys was taking part in the World War II Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.! He was one of 16 children born to John and Fannie Mulder. Richard and Betty retired in 1990 and moved to Worthington. Due to the large crowd, Richardís funeral was moved to the First Baptist Church in Worthington. Ladies of the Adrian Baptist served the noon meal in the adjoining gym at the Baptist Church in Worthington. Richard is buried in Sunset Rest Cemetery in Rushmore. The music chosen by the family was beautiful and meaningful for all attending. Pastor Barr gave a great talk and all those present who knew Richard also knew he was a child of God and he is now at home with his Savior and has a new body! God Bless the memory of Richard Mulder.
How good it is to have some cooler weather and see the farmers so busy in the fields. The gardens are producing their last fruits and vegetables. Thanks to my good neighbors I have lots of tomatoes, peppers, and grapes!
I attended my first volleyball game this year, September 11th. How great to have a minute of complete silence in honor of those who died on 9-11-01! The band played the Star Spangled Banner and it was sung by Mr. Jason Olson! The girls played great and won all three games! And a big thrill for me and many attending was to see very very little trash on the floors and bleachers! Thank you students! Keep it up! The girls played Hills-Beaver Creek. It was a good night! Good clean games - good clean floors and good clean fun!

What a great story about Deb (Hokeness) Konz in the 9-5-12 Review by writer Cathy Marsh. Deb is the daughter of Ray and Bonnie Konz of Rushmore. Deb is married to Dan Konz also a former Adrianite. Deb flew over to the Congo with a group from her church in Brandon. They went especially to help at an orphanage called Theresaís House in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Four million people have been killed in the brutal 1998-2003 War mostly from hunger and disease! There are about 4 million orphans! The ten day mission trip was filled with doing lots of work and help for the orphanage. How wonderful to leave Brandon to go to the Congo to help wherever the need is the greatest. Thank you Dob Konz!
The family and relatives of former Adrianite Bob Klein were saddened to hear of his death on Tuesday, September 11th at Grundy County Memorial Hospital in Iowa. Bobís funeral was Monday, September 17th at St. Mary Catholic Church in Marshalltown, Iowa. Visitation was Sunday at the Johnston Funeral Home in Conrad, Iowa. Bob and his wife JoAnn and their children Kevin and Mary lived in rural Conrad since 1987. He and his family planted 30,000 trees on their property! Bob was a coach and a teacher. He worked for Clemens Seed Co. as well as being an insurance agent and Read Estate Broker. He also worked for FS Farm Service and served on many boards. He is survived by wife JoAnn, son Kevin, daughter Mary and husband Jeff, eight grandchildren. Also surviving him are his sibling, all born in Adrian. They are Pat, Jay, Fr. Gene, Jack, Kathy and Mike. His mother, Rose (Cox) Klein lives in Springfield, MO. A sister Therese and father Jim Klein preceded him is death. Coming to his visitation and Wake services from South Dakota and Minnesota were: Alan Cox, Kay Cox, Mark Cox, Mary (Cox) Taylor, Lenore Watry, Coleen Watry, Tom and Dan Watry, Marge (Watry) Davis, Jeanne Watry, Barb (Steinhoff) and Dan Coultier, Alan and Joyce Steinhoff, Vern Suedkamp, Tony Konz, Don Kunkel, Steve Banck, Mike and Jeri Kruger and Ron and Deb Luettel. All the Kleins were so grateful and overwhelmed with the large crowd at the Wake services. Bob and JoAnnís home and land are on the edge of Conrad and we drove around it before starting for home. The trees planted by his family follow the curve of the creek and the scene is beatiful. Very good soil in that county and Bob took good care of his land that he loved so much. Blessed be the memory of Bob Klein!
