Henry C. Beisner Passes Away
The death of Henry C. Beisner, one of the old and well known residents of this section of the county, died at his home near here last Thursday. He was about sixty-five years of age. The funeral services were conducted at St. Mark's Church on Saturday, Rev. Melzer officiating at the services. The funeral was attended by a large number of the relatives and friends of the deceased.
Henry Beisner came to this country from Germany as a young man. He engaged himself at farm work, which occupation he has followed all his life. He married Miss Behrens about forty years ago, and a fine family of six daughters and one son have been reared to useful man and womanhood by these dutiful parents. The children are: Mrs. Richard Zimmer, Mrs. Henry Bartens, Mrs. Wm. Sprengel, Mrs. Fred Johnson, Misses Dora and Hilda, and William.
Mr. Beisner was an industrious man, who used excellent judgment in his management of his farm, and as a result he has prospered. He was a good neighbor and an excellent citizen, and during a long illness he manifested patience and a hopefulness which reflected the life of helpfulness and tenderness which he had lived. He will be missed by the family from the home, and influence for good, which he exerted in the community in which he lived, will be most heartily appreciated since it must be absent for evermore.
Friends and neighbors of the family extend their sympathy to the bereaved ones.
