She came to America in 1893 and was united in marriage to John VanOmmeren in May, 1916, in Grundy county. Her husband survives her, besides a sister-in-law, Mrs. H. Boven, a sister living in the Netherlands, and other relatives.
Her body was brought here accompanied by her husband Monday evening and placed in the Engelkes morgue. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Wednesday, Dr. W. Bode in charge. Interment was in the local cemetery.
Mrs. VanOmmeren up to the last expressed her faith in Christ her Savior whom she served, and her confession is a great comfort to the sorrowing ones.
