Carrie Harmina Sinning Heetland

Carrie Harmina (Sinning) Heetland was born at Lennox, South Dakota on March 14, 1895, the daughter of Fommo H. and Caroline Harmina (Schlomer) Sinning. Carrie died at the Presbyterian Home in Ackley on October 9, 1987, at the age of 92 years, 6 months, and 25 days.

Carrie grew up in Lennox and went to country school with her ten brothers. She attended Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in Lennox, South Dakota. After Carrie married Ubbe Heetland, on January 20, 1915, in Lennox, she then left her family in South Dakota and she and Ubbe moved to the farm in Ackley that Paul Heetland lives on now, which is a Century Farm.

Carrie became a member of the East Friesland Presbyterian Church of Ackley. Carrie was a charter member of the first Missionary Guild formed at East Friesland. She also taught Sunday School.

In March of 1921 the family moved to a farm near Fostoria, Iowa. Soon they returned to Ackley, on March 1, 1931. The farm is the same farm that Dale lives on.

In 1955, because of Ubbe's poor health, they moved to Tucson, Arizona where they joined the Trinity Presbyterian Church. After Ubbe's death in March, 1960, Carrie continued to work in the church groups and was active in helping the Indian people of Arizona.

When failing health became a problem in living alone, Carrie once again returned to Iowa, in 1982, making her home, this time, at the Ackley Presbyterian Home.

Carrie is survived by five children: Paul of Ackley, Iowa; Edgar of Laurens, Iowa; Annabelle Townsend of Sargus, California; Carrol of Northridge, California; and Dale of Ackley, Iowa; fifteen grandchildren; seventeen great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and one brother, Fammo F. Sinning of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Carrie was preceded in death by her parents; nine brothers; one daughter, Fern Carolyn Stuber; one granddaughter, Dawn Renee Heetland; and one great-grandson, Gregory Michael Heetland.

Funeral services were held Monday, October 12 at 10:30 a.m., at the East Friesland Presbyterian Church with Rev. Donald L. Martin officiating. Debra Wentzien was organist and soloist was Marlene Oelmann. Ushers were William Koop and Delbert J. Lindaman. Serving as pallbearers were Roger Heetland, John Stuber, Dean Heetland, Jim Stuber, Lonnie Heetland and Dennis Heetland. Interment was in the church cemetery. The Brandt-Fritz Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
