JOHN A. NAGEL

The Nagels moved to Selfridge, Sioux County in 1918. Mr. Nagel took over the Management of the Citizen State Bank. They lived in Selfridge until 1944 and then as John had accepted a position with the Internal Revenue they moved to Minot. In 1958 they moved to Coon Rapids, Minn., where they lived in retirement.
During the time they lived in Selfridge they were very active in civic and community affairs. They built their home in 1919 and also built the Palace Hotel and drug store. John was also a postmaster in Selfridge.
It was with a feeling of deep sorrow that we learned of Mrs. [Mabel Luehring Nagel] Nagel's death May 12, 1961. Her work and efforts and achievements here will live in the hearts of those who knew her best. She always had a kind word and helping hand for all.
