Birth: Feb. 27, 1889
Washington County
Texas, USA
Death: Mar. 24, 1961, USA

Services for Mrs. Lone Dorotha Bredthauer of Olney had been ill with cancer for three months before her death.

Services were held at St. Luke Lutheran Church of Olney.

Her parents moved to Stamford, Jones County, Texas in 1906 from Prairie Hill, Texas.. In 1907, her parents moved one mile southwest of Sagerton, Haskell County, Texas.

H.F. Bredthauer married Miss Lone D. Franke on 5 December 1907 at Sagerton, Haskell County, Texas. He preceded her in death.

A resident of Olney since 1927, Mr. Bredthauer was a member of St. Luke Lutheran Church.

The Bredthauer's moved into Olney in 1950, 213 East Hamilton Street. It was a modern home, four room constructed of concrete tile, fire-proof.

When they moved into their new home, an old fashioned pump organ came to their new home. The organ first was in the home of her parents at Sagerton, Haskell County, Texas. Her family moved there in the early 1900s. Choristers from all over Sagerton met from time to time at her parent's home to sing, while the young and pretty Lone Franke furnished accompaniment on the organ. her husband-to-be was at one of those singings and the organ played an important role in the courtship that followed.

Survived by two sons - Edwin Bredthauer of Arlington and Silbert Bredthauer of Leesville, LA; two daughters - Mrs. J.O. Kunkel of Olney and Mrs. R.T. Blakley of Oklahoma City, OK; seven grandchildren; one great-grandchild.
