Henry Kricke, son of Fred and Wilhelmina Schrader Kricke, was born Dec. 29, 1882, in Volpriehausen, Hanover, Germany. Shortly after his birth he was baptized. At the age of three years he came to America with his parents, coming directly to Clayton county. As a boy he attended public school and also religious school. He was confirmed at St. John's Lutheran church of Luana by the Rev. Paulson, March 16, 1913.

He was married to Filma Kliefoth March 25, 1914, by the Rev. Paulson. They farmed in the vicinity of Farmersburg until three years ago, when they retired and moved to Farmersburg.

As a young man Mr. Kricke was janitor of the Goodin church and for many years was a member of the Farmersburg band. He was a member of St. John's church in Farmersburg and for a period of years served on the church council. On March 25 of this year Mr. and Mrs. Kricke celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary.

Mr. Kricke health began to fail this winter and on Sunday, March 27, his condition suddenly became serious. On the following Monday he with his family partook of holy communion. From day to day he became weaker and last Thursday morning he quietly died.

He leaves his wife, two children, Marvin of McGregor, and Adeline (Mrs. Elmer Fuelling) of Farmersburg; five grandchildren, Baldean, Burnell and Richard Fuelling, and John and Catherine Kricke; two sisters, Mrs. Alvina Krueger of Monona, and Mrs. Milda Kliefoth of Luana, and one brother, Will, of Postville.
