Death Takes Mrs. Arthur W. Huneke

Passes Away After But A Short Illness At The State Hospital In Independence

Was 34 Years Of Age

She Was Much Beloved By All Who Knew Her And Her Going Is A Shock To Her Friends

The community was shocked Sunday evening to learn of the death of Mrs. Arthur W. Huneke, who passed away at the State Hospital, in Independence, where she had been taken about a week previously for observation and treatment. The end came quite unexpectedly as there had been no indications of a fatal illness and it was thought that she was progressing nicely on the road to health.

Her last illness began with the still birth of a daughter at the Deaconess Hospital in Marshalltown, on February 10, and although she appeared to be recovering, suffered a setback after returning home and was taken to the Marshalltown hospital and from there to Independence.

Mrs. Huneke had made her home in this community most of her 34 years of life and had won a place in the hearts of all who knew her, and her friends were legion, that will be hard to fill. She was the daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Carl Heinrichs, who live northeast of town, where the Rev. Mr. Heinrichs had been pastor of the St. Paul Lutheran Church until age forced his retirement. His place was taken by the Rev. Arthur Huneke husband of the dead woman.

Besides her husband and aged parents three brothers are left to mourn her departure. They are Carl and John of Wellsburg, and Gus, of Clear Lake.

The funeral is being held today (Wednesday) at the St. Paul Lutheran church with interment in the church cemetery. A complete obituary will be printed in the next issue of the Herald.

Mrs. Arthur Huneke Died Sunday At Independence

Mrs. Arthur Huneke, wife of Rev. Arthur Huneke, pastor of the Shiloh township Lutheran church, and only daughter of Rev. and Mrs. C. Heinrich died early Sunday morning at the hospital at Independence where she was taken but a short time before for treatment.

Mrs. Huneke gave birth to a child at the hospital at Marshalltown about a month ago. The little one was dead at birth. The young mother was deeply grieved over the loss of her first child but she seemed to be recovered and was brought home from the hospital about ten days later. Shortly thereafter she suffered a relapse and was returned to the hospital at Marshalltown. She seemed to be suffering from a blood clot on the brain. She was taken to the Independence hospital in the hope that treatment there would be helpful.

The death of Mrs. Huneke, who grew up in this community and who was loved by all who knew her, is being deeply mourned by all of her many friends and the friends of the family.

Mrs. Huneke was 34 years old. Her maiden name was Marine Heinrich, a daughter of Rev. and Mrs. C. Heinrich. She was born in Randolph county, Ill. She was but a year and a half old when she came with her parents to Grundy county, where she attended school and where she grew to womanhood. A year ago last August she and Rev. Arthur Huneke were married shortly after Rev. Huneke had succeeded his bride's father as pastor of the Shiloh township Lutheran church. The couple together with her father and mother resided together in peace, comfort and happiness in the parsonage adjoining the Shiloh township Lutheran church.

Surviving are the husband, the father and mother and three brothers. The brothers are John and Carl from Wellsburg and Gus from Clear Lake. One sister, Louise, died in 1914 and a brother, Theodore, died two years later.

Funeral services were held at the Lutheran church Wednesday afternoon. Only a small portion of the bereaved friends were able to get into the church during the services. The services were conducted by the Rev. Harder of Garnavillo, Iowa, Rev. Peter Ilgen of Holland, Rev. J. E. Drake of Cedar Falls, and Rev. Matzner of Marshalltown.

Pallbearers were Rev. Arthur Huneke and his two brothers, Harry and Alonzo Huneke, and Mrs. Huneke's three brothers, Carl, John and Gustav Heinrich.

Burial was by the side of the brother and sister in the cemetery adjoining the church.
