MRS. EMERSON UNRUH

Anna (Jantz) Unruh, daughter of Adam Jantz and Elizabeth Wedel, was born on Jan. 29, 1897 in Marion County, Kan. She left her earthly pilgrimage on Apr. 11, 1963 in the Memorial Hospital at the age of 65 years, two months and 13 days.

Mother came to Oklahoma during her childhood with her parents from Kansas and resided in the Lahoma area the rest of her life. She was baptized upon her profession of faith in Christ on June 14, 1914 and joined the New Hopedale Mennonite Church, Meno, Okla., of which she remained a member.

Anna Jantz was married to Emerson Unruh on July 24, 1918. To this union were born four children.

Her lot was not an easy one. She had a brain operation 23 years ago which never seemed successful and made her life from then on difficult. Her eyesight slowly diminished and numerous operations were necessary during her lifetime, but through it all she maintained a fervent faith in God. The last five years were spent almost exclusively at home or in the hospital. Before returning to the hospital the last time, where she spent her last four weeks, she indicated that God would call her home and that she was ready.

One son, Leo, preceded her in death.

She leaves her husband of the home in Lahoma, two daughters, Mrs. Charles W. Pearson, Waukomis, and Mrs. Raymond Brittain, Enid; seven sisters, Mrs. Clifford Kehn and Mrs. Dan. C. Jantz, both of Enid, Mrs. Frank Eck, Meno, O. C. Jantz and Mrs. Ida Eck, both of Helena, Mrs. Ben Koehn, Newton, Kan., and Mrs. Esther Ratzlaff, Portland, Ore.; two and Noah Johnson, Woodward, Iowa; and Noah Johnson, Woodward, Iowa; [sic] and five grandchildren.

Funeral services were held Sunday, April 14, in the New Hopedale Mennonite Church, Meno, Okla. — The Family.
