Charles L. Boehringer
Charles L. Boehringer, son of Charles and Margaret Boehringer deceased, was born in Covington, October 13, 1866; he departed this life on Sunday morning, Dec. 2, 1934, aged 68 years, one month, and 19 days. He was united in marriage with Agnes Steinhilber on May 22, 1895. The immediate survivors are the wife, one sister, Mrs. Rosa Koon; two brothers, Harry and Ed Boehringer all of Covington. A wide circle of other relatives and many friends feel keenly his passing. The deceased was baptized in infancy, and thirteen years ago he became a confirmed member of the St. John Lutheran congregation. He remained faithful until his death. He was a regular attendant at services until his health failed. He was a loyal member of the Improved Order of Red Men. He served as Chief of Records for the local tribe for a period of nearly 43 years. He was also a member of the Pochahontas Council. For fifteen years, Mr. Boehringer was a mail carrier in the village of Covington. He retired from the service in August 1933. He was very faithful and efficient in the service. His patrons speak highly of his splendid service rendered. He was in failing health before retiring from the mail service. After retiring from active duty his health declined rapidly. During the past summer he improved some but with the fall days declined rapidly. He was a victim of Brights Disease. He fell peacefully into the sleep of death in the early morning hours of last Sunday morning. Mr. Boehringer spent all of his life here in Covington. For many years he played in the Covington band. He was of a quiet and reserved disposition. He was faithful in the discharge of all duties which he assumed. He was held in high esteem by his fellow men. He will be greatly missed by loved ones and fellow companions. There remaineth, therefore, a rest unto the people of God.
