Zeutenhorst, Gerrit 1833-July 1912 Sioux Center
Sioux Center Nieuwsblad of July 10, 1912 In Dutch
Last week Tuesday morning, the 2nd of July, our beloved father, Gerrit Zuetenhorst, passed away in the 79-year-old one month and eight days. He had been physically weak for several years, yet he could still go up to God's house now and then. He gladly might gather with the church of the Lord. Lately his powers were taking off rapidly, as he himself realized well that the end of his life was on the mend here on earth. He rejoiced in the finished work of Jesus Christ, spoke of the preciousness of that blood of Jezue, which cleanses from all without, and in his suffering sometimes looked eagerly for the redemption from the body of this death.
Father Zuetenhorst has lived in this area for years. With his departure, another one of the ancients has left. He was a member of the Frist Ref church of Sioux Center, was interested in the welfare of the congregation and in the work of missions. Since the Lord had blessed him, he again desired the here for a moment until the expansion of God's kingdom.
On request and names Family, F. Lubbers.
