Ausbrand Janssen Burial Saturday
Ausbrand Janssen died at 8:15 p.m. Sept. 21, after a long life of 81 years, 5 months, 11 days. He had always been in good health except the last few months when his health began to fail.
Entering the hospital on Sept. 6, he submitted to abdominal surgery, but due to stomach complications and the infirmity of old age he did not recover. After several days of gradual decline, he died.
Mr. Janssen was born April 10, 1873, in Kampen, Germany. The Janssen family migrated to America in 1890, settling in the Wellsburg area. This was his home for the remainder of his life.
On Feb. 27, 1901, he was joined in marriage to Grace Beninga, by Rev. J. Timmerman, in the parsonage. They were blessed with one child, Grace. Their married life was spent on his farm 2 1/4 miles west of Wellsburg, where he also remained after his wife's death.
Mr. Janssen concerned himself not only with this life, but also with the life to come, making profession of his faith in Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord in the First Wellsburg Christian Reformed church, of which he remained a member. During this time his Lord gave him grace to serve several terms as a deacon.
Surviving him are the daughter Grace (Mrs. Thomas Schafer), two grandchildren, Gretta Mae and Richard Allen; and two brothers, Coert of Castlewood, South Dakota, and Andrew of Wellsburg. Preceding him in death were an infant sister, Marie, and his wife.
Funeral services were held Saturday, Sept. 25, at 1 p.m. in the home and later in the First Chr. Reformed church. Rev. Alfred Hannink officiated. Burial was in the cemetery adjoining the church.
Casketbearers were Ebbo Heikens, John Heikens, John Heronimus, O. O. Nederhoff, Ben E. Nederhoff and Carl J. Nederhoff.
Organist was Mrs. Arthur Cooper.
