OBITUARY ~ HENRY RONG

Henry Rong, son of Henry and Frederica Rong, was born in Germany, August 14, 1858— and departed this life in the Greater Community Hospital in Creston, Iowa on September 15th, at the age of 77 years, 1 month, 1 day. At the age of seven, he with his parents and two sisters, emigrated from Germany to Pleasantville, Ohio, making that place their home for a number of years.

Being reared in a purely Christian home, Mr. Rong was early baptised in the German Lutheran Church at Covington, Ohio. On October 1st, 1895, he was united in marriage to Jane Leonard, and to this union were born six vhildren:— Mary Parcel, Centerville, Iowa, Leonard of Arrgo Grande, California, Dorothy DeVoe of Clearfield, Harold of Marsing, Idaho; George of Manhattan, Nevada and Wilbur of Clearfield, Iowa.

In the spring of 1908, he with his family came to Iowa, making their home west of Clearfield until a few years ago when he and Mrs. Rong moved into Clearfield where he has since resided. He was a kind and loving husband and father, and a friend to all who knew him.

He leaves to mourn his going, besides his devoted wife , and six children, two brothers, Fred and John Rong, and two sisters, Sophia Bossinger and Maggie Bashor— all of Ohio— besides many other relatives and friends.

[Poem]

Funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 17, at the United Presbyterian Church, conducted by the pastor, Rev. H.B. Hutchman. At this service, all the children were present except Harold Rong of Marsing, Idaho. The interment was in the Clearfield Cemetery.
