Confirmed in 1901
Anna Katharina Margaretha Hasstedt, third child of Martin and Mattie Hasstedt, was born April 12, 1887, in Harrison Township, Boone County, Iowa. She attended the schools of that community, joining St. Paul's by rite of confirmation March 31, 1901.
The following years were spent in the parental home where she ministered to the needs of the household and her aged parents.
Early in the morning of July 4, while at work she was stricken with paralysis which terminated her life soon after. She reached the age of 51 years, 2 months and 22 days. She is survived by her aged parents, Martin and Mattie Hasstedt and two brothers, Charles and Christ Hasstedt of Boone County.
Of a quiet and unassuming character she endeared herself to a large circle of friends. A consecrated Christian woman, she put into practice the faith which was hers. The sympathy of a host of friends and neighbors is extended the bereaved family.
