Henry Albert Jontra, long time resident of Gage, Okla., succumbed to a lengthy illness at Newman Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, March 14, at the age of 90 years, four months and four days, having been a patient of the hospital since December 14, 1962, as a result of burns he suffered when his clothing caught fire.

They resided in Kansas for five years before moving to a farm south of Gage. In 1922 they retired from active farming and moved to Gage to establish a home. As long as possible they maintained an active interest in community affairs. They were members of the First Christian Church in Gage.
Mr. Jontra was preceded in death by four infant sons and by Mrs. Jontra in 1960; three sisters, Mrs. Mollie Wright, Mrs. Rose Godlove and Mrs. Ellen Stevens; and three brothers, Charlie, Fred and Jesse Jontra.
