Away After Brief



Arapahoe - The death of Mrs. Fred Hahn, early Friday morning, came as a distinct shock to many of her relatives and friends. Although her health had been failing and a heart condition had recently kept her partially confined, it was a stroke suffered Thursday that proved fatal.

Her thirty-odd years of residence here have been spent on the same farm, two miles north of town, and the large gatherings for the funeral services attested to her wide circle of friends and acquaintances. The last rites were held at two-thirty o'clock Monday afternoon at Trinity Lutheran Church, in charge of her pastor, William J. Roesler. Burial was in the Arapahoe cemetery. Her seven surviving children were all present, as well as many other members of a large family circle. Pallbearers were Fred Kingsley of Arapahoe and five nephews, Chris Eltiste and Roy Ferguson of Phillipsburg, Kansas, Glen Mannschreck of Topeka, Kansas, Lee Mannschreck of Le Roy, Kansas and Henry Hahn of Johnson.

Catherine Hahn, daughter of Christian and Catherina Mannschreck, was born in Wuertemberg, Germany, February 26, 1865. She received her Christian education in the Evangelical Lutheran Church and was confirmed at the age of 14. In the year 1880, when she was 15 years old, she came with her parents to Nebraska City, Nebraska. Three years later she was united in marriage to Fred J. Hahn at Talmadge, Nebraska by Rev. Duerschner. Mr. and Mrs. Hahn spent the early years of their married life on a farm in Johnson County, Nebraska. It the spring of the year 1908 the family came to Arapahoe; they made their home on a farm two miles north of town, where the family resided ever since. In February  of this year Mr. and Mrs. Hahn were married 57 years; in February of the year 1933 they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, for which occasion all the children were able to be present.

Although Mrs. Hahn had been failing in health the past year, it was not until recent months that she could not take of the duties of her household. She was called by her Lord from this earthly abode to her heavenly home early Friday morning at the age of 75 years and 5 months. She leaves her husband, Mr. Fred Hahn and seven children: Mrs. Marie Deutsch of Johnson, Nebraska; Mrs. Minnie Anderson of Racine, Wisconsin; Mrs. Clara Barton of Johnson, Nebraska; Mrs. Rose Lamer of Whitten, Iowa; Mr. Robert Hahn of Hayes Center, Nebraska; Mrs. Elsie Monroe of Glendo, Wyoming, and Mr. Arnold Hahn of Arapahoe, Nebraska.
