Elkader Register, Thur., 12 Oct. 1922. Luana column.

Friday, October 5th, occurred one of the largest funerals ever occurring from the Lutheran church, the funeral of Vera Lenth, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Lenth, wife of George Sass of Monona. Mrs. Sass was born near Luana Sept. 15, 1891, on Oct. 11 she was baptized at Clayton Center. She received her religious training under the instruction of the Luana Lutheran church, being confirmed in 1906. June 23, 1920, she married George Sass, Jr.

That same year she was seriously ill with pleurisy, since which she has been gradually declining. Being advised to enter a sanatorium, she entered the Oak Dale, Iowa, sanatorium in June. Oct. 3 her condition became alarming, husband and parents were sent for but arrived to late. Friday afternoon Oct. 5, she was laid to rest in the Luana Lutheran Cemetery, Rev. Kumpf was her pastor. Our sympathy goes out to the bereaved husband, father, mother, five brothers and three sisters left to mourn.
