Sioux Center Nieuwsblad of Dec 23, 1903 In Dutch
After a severe suffering of several weeks, Thursday morning, 17 Dec. of a disease that had already plagued her for years, my dearly beloved wife, Jantje Dijkstra born Vander Ploeg, died at the old age of more than 66 years. For almost 42 years we had been really connected with each other in a very pleasant way. Four sons and three daughters, as well as six married, and there are several little boys who take this heavy with me. The firm confidence, however, that her loss is her gain, lightens our sadness: we stare at her in the hope of a happy reunion. Hille Dijkstra and Children.
We also owe our sincere thanks for the cordial condolences and willing help shown us, from our friends.
A separate article:
Mrs. Hille Dijkstra exchanged Thursday morning around 8 o'clock, the temporary with the eternal. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon from the First Ref. Church under the direction of Rev. De Pree. Our sympathy is with the surviving elderly husband and the children.
