Anna Mary Rohlfs, daughter of John Gerdes Konken and his wife, Sophie, nee
Eilers, was born at Sande, Germany, July 27, 1849. In 1873 she was married
to John Harms Rohlfs. They emigrated to America in 1876, making their home
in Jones county, near Monticello, Iowa.
In 1883 they moved to Le Mars. Eight children were born to this union, Tena
Oloff, Meta Reichel, Meine, John, Fred and Wm. Rohlfs, McLean, Neb. Two
children preceded her in death, Mary Maloney in 1915 and Harm in 1918, on a
battlefield of France. Furthermore her death is mourned by twenty-four
grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and by two brothers: Henry Konken,
Coleridge, Neb., and Ben Konken, Hartington, Neb.
The deceased reached the age of 84 years, 11 months and 13 days. She was
suffering for almost twelve years and lived with her daughter, Tena Oloff,
until her death. Her helpless condition required much care and patience
which she received in the hands of her daughter. She was laid to rest in
the Lutheran cemetery of Grant township, Rev. F. Bunge officiating.
