Postville Review, March 6, 1914:

Mrs. Christ Harnack, whose maiden name was Sass, was born in Loesson, Germany, Nov. 11, 1831, and died about 12:30 on Sunday, March 1, 1914, aged 82 years, 3 months and 18 days. In 1852 she emigrated to America, settling in Guttenberg. December 21, 1852, she was married to Christ Harnack and to this union were born two sons and five daughters, one son having died. After three years in Guttenberg they moved near Garnavillo. In 1878 they moved to their farm three miles south of Postville and in 1885 they moved to Postville. December 21, 1902, they celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary and in 1912 they celebrated the 60th anniversary of their wedded life. Last October disease laid hold of her and since that time she has been a patient sufferer. All that medical skill and tender care could do for her was done, but without avail. Saturday noon last she was stricken with paralysis, the entire right side being affected, rendering her unconscious, speechless and helpless. She is survived by her son John, her five daughters, namely, Mrs. August Dahl, Mrs. John Krambeer, Mrs. Jochen Schultz, Mrs. Louis Meyer and Mrs. John Schroeder, one sister and many friends. The funeral was held from the Lutheran church at 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 4, 1914. Rev. R. Kuehne officiating. Interment in the Postville cemetery.
