Jacob LePere, son of the late Peter and Louise Franz LePere, was born at Belleville, Ill., Aug. 12, 1856, and passed away at Dr. Crenshaw's Hospital in St. Louis, Friday, Nov. 14, 1930, following an illness of sinus infection, at the age of 74 years, 3 months, and 2 days. Funeral services were conducted at the M.E. Church, South, at Farmington, Sunday, at 2:00 p.m., by his pastor, Rev. J. T. Ricketts. Interment was at Parkview.
Jacob LePere, whose parents came from France in their youth, moved with them to Kirkwood, Mo., when eight years old, and received his education there. On Aug. 29, 1881, he was united in marriage to Miss Solome Catherine Greb. To this union were born nine children, three girls and six boys. Four sons preceded their father in death, three of them dying in childhood, and Walter, who fell in action in France, Oct. 9, 1918. He is survived by his widow; two sons, Dr. Oscar, and Dr. Jack H. LePere, of Gonzales, Texas; and three daughters, Mrs. Emma R. Phelan, of Malden, Mo; Mrs. Matilda Doss, Mrs. Ethel Detring, of Farmington; and Viola LePere, at home; eleven grandchildren; two brothers, Edward LePere, of Kirkwood, and H. P. LePere, of Ballwin, Mo; and one sister, Mrs. Louise Heege, of Clayton; besides many other relatives and friends who mourn his death.
Following his marriage Mr. LePere moved to a farm in Illinois, where they lived twelve years, and during this time, besides running his farm, he took an active part in the public affairs of the township and county in which he lived. At different times he held the offices of supervisor and assessor.
In 1893 the family moved back to St. Louis County, and located at Manchester, where they remained until 1916, when they moved to Farmington, where they have since resided.
Mr. LePere was a very active and vigorous man. The only illness he ever had was the one that took him away. By nature he was endowed with a reverence for all things pertaining to his Creator. The principles of his religion he practiced in every day life. He was a member of the M.E. church, south, and also belonged to the Men's Bible Class, and attended services regularly. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
