Mrs. Anna Bruns Died Suddenly Saturday Morning
Mrs. Anna Beenken Bruns passed away very suddenly Saturday morning at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Greenfield in Cedar Heights where she has been making her home. Dr. Mol was called early Saturday morning and when he arrived found her in a dying condition with life almost extinct. On examination he could find no cause for death and advised that the coroner be called. When he arrived an autopsy was held but nothing was found to indicate that she had taken poison as was at first feared, and the cause of death was diagnosed as enlargement of the heart.
Anna Bruns was born January 19, 1902, at Grundy Center, Iowa, being the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Beenken. On the 11th day of May, 1902, she was dedicated to the Lord in holy baptism and became a member of the Lincoln Center Christian Reformed church. Later she had her membership transferred to the German Presbyterian church in Grundy Center. Since 1919 she made her home with Mr. and Mrs. Fred Greenfield.
On February 22, 1922, she was united in marriage with Andrew Bruns and to this union one child, Katherine Elizabeth, was born. After five years this union was severed by law and she again went to make her home with Mr. and Mrs. Greenfield.
She leaves to mourn her loss, her daughter, her mother and step-father, Mr. and Mrs. Ludwig Beenken of Stout: three brothers, Luitjen, George and Conrad, and two sisters, Mrs. Dick Uhlenhopp and Verna: three half-sisters and two half-brothers, Mary, Helen, Louise, Ludwig and Reint, besides other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Reformed church in Stout with the pastor, Rev. Heyenga, officiating, assisted by Rev. Dr. Niven of the First Presbyterian church of Waterloo. Interment was made in the Stout cemetery.
