Services for Chris Juon, Widely Known Alleman Man, at Alleman Church

Native of Switzerland Came to This Country When An Infant

Alleman.–Funeral services for Chris Juon, widely known Alleman farmer and one of the older residents of that community, were held Friday afternoon at 1 o’clock at the home and at 2 o’clock from the Alleman Reformed church. The services were in charge of the pastor, Rev. A. I. Kruetzman. Internment was in the Lincoln cemetery.

The deceased had been in failing health for the past two years, but his condition was not serious until about two weeks ago. Since that time his health had failed rapidly.

During the services at the home Miss Mildred Hook sang “Sweet Hour of Prayer,” and at the church a quartet composed of Arnold Engelman, Raymond Hitz, Harold Hitz and Ralph Hitz, sand “Abide With Me,” and “Safely and Tenderly Jesus is Calling.” The pallbearers were: Arnold Alleman, Will Jaeger, Arthur Lehman, Carl Jaeger, Fred Lehman and Clarence Alleman.

Born in Switzerland

Christian Juon, son of the late Christian and Clara Juon, was born in Chrish (Grusch), Switzerland, August 8, 1871, and passed away this life Tuesday, July 25, 1944, at the age of 72 years.

The deceased came with his parents to this country at the tender age of one and a half years. The family came directly to the Alleman community, settling on a farm there. Here the deceased grew to manhood and has since made his home there. He was united with the Alleman Reformed church in 1886, being a charter member of that organization.

On February 17, 1905 (1904), at Whittier, California, he was united in marriage to Miss Catherine Wagner(Wagoner) and to this union eight children were born, two of whom preceded their father in death.

Mr. and Mrs. Juon made their home on the farm south of Alleman until about two years ago when they moved to a property (in Alleman, Iowa?)

Surviving in addition to the widow are the children: Alfred of Jewell Mrs. Clare (Clara) Lande of Huxley, Mrs. Iona Ceamer (Ione Kramer) of Webster City, Elmer, Merlan and Edna, at home. One of the son’s preceding him in death was Willis, whose accidental electrocution occurred just a year to the day before his father’s death. Also surviving are a sister and a brother, Mrs. Will (Susanna) Jaeger of Des Moines, and S. (Sebastian) Juon of Chapman, Kansas, and six grandchildren.
