The untimely death of Mrs. Behrends came as a shock to her many friends throughout the community and these friends realized that a worthy woman had been called hence, while yet in the midst of a useful life, and the sense of loss is felt keenly not only in the family circle but by the friends by whom she was loved and respected because of her fine womanly character and her kindly nature. Friends extend the full measure of sympathy to the members of her family.


Adele Louise Antholz, daughter of Herman and Louise Antholz,

(nee Holthus) was born March 26, 1896 on a farm in Benton precinct, Nemaha county. She was baptized by Rev. J. H. Dirks, pastor of St. John's Lutheran church, known as the Stone church, on May 3 of the same year and was confirmed in 1910 by Rev. H. H. Studier, pastor of the Martin Luther church.

In 1913 she lost her beloved mother.


On July 28, 1915, she was married to Albert W. Behrends and they went to make their home on a farm southwest of Auburn near the Muddy. Mrs. Behrends was a true homemaker, devoted to her duties as wife and mother, but also found time and opportunity to minister to others about her and to help where help was needed. She was also faithful to her religious duties, and her example was one worthy of the true Christian.


She is survived by her husband and six sons, Melvin, Ivan, Clarence, Orvil, Che
