Died suddenly on April 26th, 1895, at 6 o'clock p.m., in German township, beloved wife of Cornelius Hayenga, age 48 years, 4 months and 14 days. The funeral was held Monday, April 29 at Rev. Smidt's church, and a large number of sympathizing friends followed the remains to their last resting place. Deceased was a noble, good hearted woman, and will be greatly missed by her friends and neighbors. Just four weeks ago the worthy couple celebrated their Silver wedding and everybody wished them to live to celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary. The lonely husband and five motherless children survive her and mourn her sudden demise; but they do not mourn as those having no hope and they may look to a happy reuniting in that better land where sickness and parting never comes.
