William Edward Iuppenlatz,
74, Passes Away
          William Edward Iuppenlatz, 74 years old was found dead at his home near St. Paul Sunday morning about 9 o'clock.  Death was attributed to heart disease by Dr. W.R. Tindall Shelby county coroner.  The body was discovered by  Raymond Russell  and  Earl McNeely.  Mr. Russell had gone to the Iuppenlatz home Sunday morning, but being unable to arouse him went away.  After thinking over the fact that he was living alone and that no sign of his presence were noticed he returned to the home again.  This time he notified Mr. McNeely, a neighbor, and the two began an investigation.  Mr. Iuppenlatz was born in the Bethel church community south of St. Paul and spent his entire life in Decatur and Shelby counties.  In 1893 he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Young who preceded him in death more than twenty years ago.  Besides numerous nieces and nephews he is survived by two brothers:  Charles, of Indianapolis and  Louis, of Sharon Center, Ohio.  He was a member of the St. Omer United Brethern church.  Funeral arrangements have not yet been made, but burial will be in Paul Hill cemetery.
