Cornelius Hinders Was Sick a Week; Died Thursday

Cornelius Hinders died at the home of his grandmother in Holland last Thursday night. He was sick less than a week with pneumonia. He was employed on the farm of his uncle, Will Hinders. He was taken sick Friday evening and remained at home the next day. His condition became more serious and a doctor was called. The doctor found a well-developed case of pneumonia and a special nurse was put on the case at once. The young man's condition grew gradually worse in spite of what the doctor and the nurse could do for him.

Funeral services were held at the home at one o'clock on Monday and later at the Christian Reformed church at Holland. The services were in charge of Rev. Voskuil. Burial was in the Holland cemetery.

Cornelius Hinders was born in this locality on July 30, 1911, and spent his entire life here. He was a quiet, upright young man of good habits. He had the respect and the good will of all who knew him. His death following so brief an illness is deeply regretted by all who know him.

In September, 1934, Cornelius Hinders and Helen Venenga were married. Since their marriage they made their home with the young man's grandmother, in whose household and under whose care he grew to manhood.

Surviving are the grandmother, Mrs. T. Hinders; his mother, Mrs. George Eilers; six half-sisters and one half-brother.

Obituary of Cornelius Hinders
The following obituary was prepared by the pastor and read at the church service:
"Ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is a vapor, that appeareth for a little while and then vanisheth away."

Cornelius Dirks Hinders was born July 30, 1911, at Holland, Iowa. He was baptized in his infancy into the promises of the covenant of Grace. Most of his life was spent at Holland, having been reared in the home of his grandmother, Mrs. T. Hinders. He received his public school education at Holland and attended the Christian Reformed church there. When he grew to young manhood he began working on the farm of Wm. Hinders, west of Holland, and continued this work until a week before he died.

On September 27, 1934, he was united in holy wedlock by the Rev. Voskuil to Miss Helen Venenga, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Venenga of Wellsburg. Since then they occupied part of the home of his grandmother in Holland.

On April 18 he became seriously ill with pneumonia and complications and he died on Thursday evening, April 23, at 9:00 p.m. at the youthful age of 24 years, 8 months and 24 days.

He leaves to mourn his early departure his grief-stricken young wife, his aged grandmother, his mother and seven brothers and sisters, the Mrs. G. Eilers and family of Grundy Center, two uncles, Tony and Will Hinders of this vicinity, and one aunt, Mrs. F. Schmidt of Pierre, S.D., besides many other relatives and a host of friends who will greatly miss the quiet, modest life of their young friend.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon, April 27, at 1:00 at the home and after that at the Chr. Reformed church, the Rev. L. Voskuil officiating. The Rev. Drake of Cedar Falls, a friend of many of the relatives, spoke in the German language. Mrs. Clarence Beecroft sang, "We Are Going Down the Valley" and "Abide With Me."

Pallbearers were Dick and Henry Werkman, John Venenga, Fred W. Getting, Ed. Heerts and Bernard Buus.

Out of town relatives to attend the funeral were Mrs. F. Schmidt from Pierre, S.D., and Mrs. Harm Klaver of Kamrar, Iowa.

Interment was made at the Holland cemetery.
