Decatur County Journal
Leon, Decatur County, Iowa
December 24, 1908

OBITUARY - MRS. LENNIE HAENTZE

Mrs. Lennie HAINTZE (sic) nee McDONALD, daughter of E. W. McDONALD, formerly of this county [Decatur County, IA], died at Seattle, Wash., December 10th, at 2 o'clock a.m. at the hospital. She suffered intense agony for a period of 14 days of tumor of the bowels. She was born near Tuskeego, January 24, 1871, making her 36 years, 10 months and 14 days at the time of her departure. She spent a part of her young life in the vicinity of Tuskeego, afterwards moving with her grandparents, Maley McDONALD and wife, to Kellerton. She remained with them until their death, she then kept house for her father and one brother, who is now in the Philippines. She was married June 11, 1893, to Charles A. HAINTZE (sic, should be HAENTZE), in Kellerton.

She united with the M.E. Church at the age of 12 years and was always a constant worker. While in Kellerton she was one of the prominent members of that place and when anything was needed to be done the church never was afraid to call on Lennie as she was called by one and all, for she was always found ready and willing to do her duty. She, with her husband, moved to Seattle, Washington, about four years ago and was still there at the time of her death.

Those present at her bedside in her last few days, were her husband, father, step-mother, brother and family. She constantly begged them to do something for her as she was too young to die. She leaves many relatives and friends who have been made very sad by her death. She was buried December 12th, at 10 a.m., in a most beautiful place where she had often visited and had remarked so many times "How beautiful." Her casket was literally strewn with flowers.

NOTE: Dr. Charles A. HAENTZE was the son of Mary Louise (BUCKLIN) HAENTZE BRAMON and the step-son of James Harvey BRAMON.
