Carl M. Schiller was born in Nassau, Württemberg, Germany, on July 22, 1886, the son of George and Margaret Glock Schiller.

He departed this life on June 1, 1976, at the Phillips County Hospital, Phillipsburg, having attained the age of 89 years, 10 months and 9 days.

As a young boy he came with his parents from Germany to America in 1896, where the family settled north of Logan. Carl grew to manhood in this area.

In 1933 he was united in marriage to Amanda Meyer at Lohman, Missouri. They made their home on the farm north of Logan where Carl was engaged in farming and the insurance business. In 1949 they moved into Logan, but still remained active in business.

Carl was a member of St. Peter's Lutheran Church. He was a long-time Board Member of the Logan Cooperative Association. He greatly enjoyed playing the organ in the later years of his life and was an avid fisherman.

He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife, Amanda, of the home in Logan, and many other relatives and friends.

Services were held Thursday, June 3, at 2 p.m. in St. Peter's Lutheran Church with Pastor Neil Ohlsen officiating.

Singers were Mrs. Dan Bushnell and Mrs. Carl Schick.

Casket bearers were: Donald Meyer, Milton Meyer, Robert Schiller, Herbert Schiller, Donald Peterson, and Johannes Schiller.

Burial was at St. Peter's Lutheran Cemetery.



Words cannot express the deep appreciation I have in my heart for all the thoughtful deeds given by you dear folks during Carl's illness and death.

The cards, beautiful flowers, the Lutheran ladies who served the dinner and all those who gave to the Memorial Fund will never be forgotten. May God richly bless you.
