Henrietta Geist Runk
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 21, 1843
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 28, 1874

Henrietta Geist Runk was my great great grandma. She was born a daughter of Rev. Conrad Geist and his wife Rachael Linderman Geist. (Trivia- a newly published history of Pillow, Pennsylvania notes about her father "In 1874, Conrad Geist found a dead mountain lion in the Pillow water supply area on the North side of Mahantango Mountain ...")

She was the first wife of Reverend Jacob Runk. For more information on him and the family, please see his memorial.

In the Biographical Encyclopedia of Dauphin County, she is favorably mentioned in a bio of her husband, wherein it says, "She was a devout Christian, and a talented leader in church work, a lovely lady, and a devoted mother."

Henrietta was the mother of
Cora M. Runk Mutch
Anna I. Runk
Martha Ella Runk Romberger
Rev. Irvin Runk
Henry Runk
Henrietta RUNK

Henrietta probably died in childbirth, as her death date coincides with the birthdate of her last son, Irvin.
