Mrs. Margaret Heeren, Old Resident Succumbs to Illness
Mrs. Margaret Heeren was born in Germany, June 12, 1840, and died in Plymouth county, Iowa, June 26, 1914, at the age of 74 years and 14 days. She came to America in 1868, where she was married to John Herren at Monticello, Iowa, where they lived for about five years. From there they came to LeMars and later bought a farm in the west part of the county, where Mr. Heeren died in 1897. Five children were born to this union, a babe and one older daughter, Hannah, having preceded their parents in death. The three surviving children are Mrs. Mary Fursee, Mrs. Annie Hoffman, and Mrs. Lena DeWolf. The two former are old residents of the Millnerville neighborhood and Mrs. DeWolf is now a resident of Canton, South Dakota, and was unable to be present at her motherís funeral. Services were conducted by Rev. George Varce at the Adaville church Saturday morning, and the aged lady laid to rest in Pleasant Valley cemetery. Mrs. Herren was one of the pioneer mothers, an untiring worker and a good neighbor. She will be greatly missed in the neighborhood by others as well as her circle of relatives. A number of grandchildren and several great grandchildren, as well as her daughters, are left to mourn her departure.
