Koehn Funeral Services Held At Greenfield
Funeral services for John C. Koehn, 68-year-old Carnegie farmer who died last Thursday in a Newton, Kansas, hospital were held at 2:30 p.m. Sunday from the Greenfield Mennonite church near Fort Cobb, with Rev. Ben Fresien and Rev. J.B. Krause officiating.
Koehn entered the Newton hospital on August 2 and underwent major surgery on August 5. His condition grew steadily worse and he died at 11 a.m. last Thursday.
Born June 5, 1889, in McPherson, Kansas, he moved with his parents when he was 12 years of age to Goltry, Okla., where on October 13, 1914, he was married to Miss Katie Schmidt. He and his wife made their home in western Kansas for three years, and 11 years at Goltry.
Koehn and his wife came to Carnegie in 1928, moving to a farm eight miles south and one mile east. He was making his home there when he became ill and entered the hospital. He was a member of the Greenfield Mennonite church.
He is survived by his wife; three sons, Lloyd of Chickasha, Elmer Lee of Enid and Paul of Dallas; four daughters, Mrs. Edna Unruh, Carnegie, Mrs. Loretta Unruh and Mrs., Sophia Nightingale of Fort Cobb, and Mrs. Nora Bell Dalke, Denver; three brothers, seven sisters and 20 grandchildren. One daughter and two grandsons preceded him in death.
Burial was at the Greenfield church cemetery, with the Fort Cobb Funeral Home in charge.
