Mrs. H. Schulte Died Friday At Marshalltown
Mrs. Henry Schulte died at the Deaconess hospital at Marshalltown last Friday. Three weeks before she was taken to the hospital for an operation for the removal of a tumor. She stood this operation very well. A little later she contracted the flu after which pneumonia developed. In her weakened condition following the operation she was unable to win in the struggle against pneumonia in spite of the best of care that nurses and doctors at the hospital could give her.
The body was brought to the home three and a half miles southeast of Wellsburg. Funeral services were held at the home at 12:30 and later at Colfax Presbyterian church on Tuesday. The services were in charge of the regular pastor, Rev. George Swalve. He was assisted by the former pastor, Rev. J. E. Drake. Rev. Swalve delivered a sermon in English and Rev. Drake in the German language. Burial was in the cemetery adjoining the church.
Hattie Schulte, nee Venenga, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. M. Venenga, was born May 11, 1888, in Colfax township, where she resided during her life.
She was united in the bonds of holy wedlock with Henry Schulte March 2, 1910. With her husband, on Aug. 1, 1920, she united with the fellowship of the Holland Presbyterian Church, where she had been baptized as a child, attended Sunday school and worshiped during her life.
Mrs. Schulte had lived in the community where she died nearly all of her life. The many friends she made during her life feel her death as a personal loss.
Mrs. Schulte was 48 years old. Her maiden name was Hattie Venenga. Surviving are the husband, her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. B. M. Venenga, and two brothers, Anton and Menno Venenga; also John and Hattie Lupkes, who were reared in the family home, besides many other relatives and friends.
Pallbearers were Ben Jaspers, Eilt J. Meyer, P. J. Meyer, Lee DeNeui, Asa Slifer and John Ohling.
