Mary Baum Lenarz Goes to Her Reward
One of our oldest and most
highly respected German citizens
passed away last night at the
home of her son, Lou H. Baum, on
East Eleventh street, Mrs. Mary
Baum Lenarz. She was more than
70 years of age and died largely
from the infirmities of age. Her
maiden name was Doll, and she
was born on. the Rhine, in Ger-
many, February 13, 1836, and
came to America June 20, 1857.
She had lived in Portsmouth for-
ty seven, years. She was twice
married; her first husband being
Louis II. Baum, Sr., a well known
German business man who died
in the seventies. After several
years of widowhood she was join-
ed in marriage to Henry Lenarz,
who has been dead several years.
Since she has made her home with
tier son and only child, Lou H.
Baum. Mrs. Lenarz was a woman
known for her charity and many
excellent qualities. She was gen-
erous to the poor, and visited the
sick and afflicted and gave freely
of her earthly store to all wor-
thy causes. She was a devoted
member of St. Mary's Catholic
church, and in her days of
strength was an active worker in
the parish. She was here at the
building of St. Mary's church,
having worshipped with the con-
gregation when it occupied the
old church on Madison street. She
was a liberal giver to the church
fund when the present fine struct-
ure was planned and erected. She
was here during the years of the
civil war and had a vivid remem-
brance of those stirring times.
Her first husband was in business
on Chillicothe street when there
were very few houses north of
Seventh street. She lived to see
the struggling town grow to be
a prosperous city. The funeral
will take place tomorrow morning
at 9 o'clock sun time from St.
Mary's church. The pallbearer
have been chosen from German
citizens, friends of herself and
family. They are as follows: Her
man Huels, Philip Yinger, John
Baron, Andrew Maire, John
Dimler and Nick Ames.
