Funeral Services For Mrs. Geo. Wubbens Held Last Thursday

Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. at the home and later at the Second Christian Reformed church for Mrs. George Wubbens. Burial was in the Shiloh cemetery.

Mrs. George Wubbens, nee Hattie Hayenga, was born the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Claus Hayenga, on August 8, 1877 near Forreston, Illinois. She accompanied her parents to Iowa at a rather early age and has lived in this vicinity since that time. In October of the year 1899, she was joined in marriage with George Wubbens. To this union five children were born, John of Wellsburg, Clarence of Eldora, Fred of Wellsburg, Tena (Mrs. Floyd Weber) of Ackley and Carrie (Mrs. John Boekhoff Jr.) of Wellsburg. There are also four granddaughters; Thelma and Marjorie Weber of Ackley and Barbara and Karol Wubbens of Wellsburg. Mrs. Wubbens also leaves to mourn her departure, four brothers; John and Will of Little Rock and Harm and George of Wellsburg; and three sisters; Mrs. Kate Miller, Mrs. Arthur Schultz and Tena Hayenga, all of Ackley. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and two sisters.

Mrs. Wubbens was a member of St. Peter's Evangelical Church and has attended the Second Christian Reformed Church of Wellsburg since moving here.

Mrs. Wubbens enjoyed a fine reputation in the community. With the remarkable health and strength which God had given her, she performed a prodigious amount of labor. Mrs. Wubbens could always be expected to lend a helping hand.

Mid-summer of 1951 it became apparent that her health was beginning to fail. Since February of this year, she lived with her daughter, Mrs. Weber, who did much to make her last few months of life as comfortable as possible. The end of her earthly life came at 2 o'clock on the afternoon of Monday, May 26th.

Those attending the funeral were from Little Rock, Latimer, Waterloo, Aplington, Austinville and Ackley, Iowa; also Heron Lake, Minnesota; Springfield, Minnesota and Forreston, Illinois.
