Henry Schnittger Passes Away
Well Known Young Man Living Ten Miles Northeast of Estherville

Sunday [November 22, 1914] morning Henry Schnittger, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. Schnittger, passed to the great beyond where he will suffer no more. Three years ago after spending the winter in the Estherville Business College and fitting himself for a business career, he caught cold which settled on his lungs resulting in tuberculosis and since then has been steadily failing. Last winter he and his brother, Arthur, went south to spend the winter. The change of climate seemed to help him but on his return home in the spring he grew worse. Henry was a very apt and industrious worker and was always willing to lend a helping hand. He will be keenly missed by his relatives and numerous friends.

Henry Edward Schnittger was born in Henry county, Iowa, on September 24, 1890. When he was two years of age his parents moved to the farm on which they are still living, near Huntington. In 1912 he attended the Commercial College in Estherville and made many friends who were greatly shocked to hear of his death. Funeral services were held from the residence Tuesday forenoon at eleven o’clock and was attended by a large concourse of friends and neighbors. Rev. Hill of Dolliver delivered a fitting eulogy. The remains were laid to rest in the east side cemetery in Estherville. He leaves to mourn his loss a mother, father, four brothers: Arthur, Clarence, William and Theo; and five sisters, Mrs. Olive Davis, Mrs. John McCormick, Ellen, Lillie and Mabel. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, November 25, 1914)
