Mr. Bappe was born in Atlantic [actually Wiota] June 9, 1864, and came to Woodbury County in 1883.
Surviving Mr. Bappe are three sons, Justin of Sioux Rapids, Iowa, and Bazel and Victor of Correctionville, two daughters, Ina of Sioux City, and Mrs. Thompson (Bessie) of Anthon, two sisters, Mrs. F.W. (Ella) Johnson of Moville and Miss Julia Bappe of Lawton, two brothers Henry Bappe of Fergus Falls, Minnesota, and John Bappe of Lawton and three grandchildren. He and his family lived on a farm near Lawton, IA (at Stone's Grove), then moved to Mississippi, then to Lawton where he printed the Lawton Journal, then to Correctionville, IA.

He was married to Rosella Mae Marr on September 6, 1893. Rosella Mae Marr was born on February 14, 1872 in James, Iowa. She died on April 12, 1913 in Correctionville, IA. She was buried in Graceland Park Cemetery, Sioux City, IA. She Obituary. Mrs. Will Bappe Is Called Home, April 14, 1913

Mrs. Wm Bappe, a former resident of this place, but who for the past year and a half had resided at Correctionville, passed away at her home in that city on last Friday evening. She was 41 years of age.
Rosella Mae Marr was born at James, Iowa, on February 14, 1872. When 18 months old her parents moved to Brookhaven, Mississippi. On Sept 6, 1893, she was united in marriage to Mr. Wm Bappe at Brookhaven, Mississippi. Shortly after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Bappe moved to Iowa. To this union were born six children, who with their father survive. They are: Justin, Eva, Ina, Bazil, Bessie, and Victor.
Mrs. Bappe was converted at the age of 16, and became a member of the M.E. Church, and remained a faithful member to the end. She was a woman who never hesitated to go out of her way to help another in need. She was a loving wife and mother and her last request to her loved ones was that they meet her in heaven. Sympathy goes out to the motherless children.
Vain is the attempt to measure the loss of a mother to her children, for there is no love like mother love. We believe the tender care devoted to those nearest and dearest, went with her to the better land, and in the possibilities of eternity, may be needed here after.
Besides her husband and children, deceased is survived by her mother and father, two brothers and one sister, all residing at Brookhaven, Mississippi. The funeral was held last Monday, and the remains taken to Moville and interment made in the cemetery at that place. {Later the remains were moved to Graceland Cemetery in Sioux City.} William Peter Bappe and Rosella Mae Marr had the following children:

The funeral was held Friday afternoon, when services were conducted at the home of her aunt, and at Graceland Chapel by Rev. W.D. Jones, pastor of the Lawton Presbyterian Church. The love and esteem of which Miss Bappe was held by the patrons of the school which she taught was manifest by the large number who attended the funeral and by the beautiful floral tributes.
