The quote above was wrong. This is it.
Gerig.-Victor Orie, son of Jacob and Anna Gerig, was born in Henry Co., Iowa, Sept. 16, 1899; died at his home near Wayland, Iowa, Nov. 22, 1921; aged 22 y. 2 m. 6 d. He leaves father, mother, two brothers, one sister, an aged grandfather and grandmother and a host of relatives and friends. He accepted Christ as his personal Savior in early youth, united with the Sugar Creek Church and remained faithful until death claimed him. He was an obedient son, had a kind and loving disposition, always willing to lend a helping hand to both young and old. During his sickness at different times, he would sing the hymns, "Oh, the Glory Gates are ever open wide," "I long to meet my Savior first of all," and "I'm pressing on the upward way." Our loss will be his eternal gain. The funeral was held Thanksgiving morning from the Sugar Creek Church. Bro. C. A. Hartzler of Tiskilwa, Ill., delivered the funeral oration in English, Bro. Dan Graber spoke in German.
