We made brief mention last week of the death of Mrs. A.J Betten in Chicago, whither she had gone several weeks ago in hope of relief from the malady with which she suffered. The remains were brought to this city Thursday and were accompanied by Mr. Betten and his two sons and by relatives from Pella. The funeral services were held Friday afternoon and were conducted by Rev. M. Kolyn assisted by Rev. A. J Zwemer of Spring Lake, Mich. The church was filled with the friends of the family from all parts of the colony who wished to show their sympathy for the living and their respect for the departed one. Mrs. Betten was born in Holland in 1844 and came to this country when quite young with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. D. Uhynsburger, of Pella. Her father, her sister, Mrs. Gesseling, and her four brothers, Henry, Cornelius, Marinus and John, join her husband and her six children in mourning her loss.

Deceased was married about twenty-seven years ago and shared with her husband the trials of pioneer life in Sioux county. Subsequently she enjoyed with him and their children many of the fruits which awaited those who remained here in spite of the difficulties connected with the early settlement. In connection with this, however, it is well to slate that sickness in the family, and what was worse, the loss of a dear son, aged sixteen, affected her badly and her intimate friends can testify how heavily that blow fell upon her. During the last two years Mrs. Betten had been confined to her home with the affliction for which surgical aid was recently sought. The result, however, did hot sustain the hopes of a loving family and loving friends. Her death occurred last Wednesday. Her sufferings, which had been borne with Christian fortitude, were at an end.The deceased had the respect of all and the love of a large portion of our community. She was a woman of great force of character and many endearing qualities. The stricken family has the heartfelt sympathy of all in
their sad loss, whereby a true wife, a devoted mother, a loving sister and daughter and a faithful friend has gone from them. -Sioux County Herald, 7/4/1894
