Mrs. A. Janssen Dies Friday; Funeral Services Sunday at Trinity Lutheran Church in Grant Twp.
The death of Mrs. Alfred Janssen took place at the Ida Grove hospital Friday morning, Nov. 15, after an extended illness. She had attained the age of 35 years and 5 days. Her illness dates back some three years, at which time it became evident that her span of life would not be long. She was able to perform her daily tasks, however; until a few weeks ago, when her condition became such that she no longer possessed the strength to do much work. She then grew steadily weaker until the end. Frieda Dora Janssen, daughter of William Schmidt and his wife, Louise, nee Miller, was born on a farm in Grant township, Nov. 10, 1905, and spent all of her life in this vicinity.
She was baptized in the Lutheran faith and later renewed her baptismal vow on the day of her confirmation in Immanuel Lutheran church in Schleswig. She remained a faithful member of the Lutheran church, having been a member of Trinity Lutheran congregation in Grant township since her marriage. On December 22, 1926, she was united in marriage with Alfred Janssen of Grant township. One son was born to this union. Since their marriage they have lived on the farm which was her home at the time of her death. Those left to mourn her passing are the husband, and son, LaWayne; her mother, Mrs. Howard Macklin and two brothers, William and Gustav Schmidt of Bloomfield, Neb., other relatives and many friends. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at the home at 1:30 and in Trinity Lutheran church in Grant township at two o’clock. Burial was made in the Trinity cemetery.
