Mrs. Anna Haas
Weimar, Tex., Jan. 30, ’17.
To the Mercury:
It is a sad incident which I will report todayThe death of Mrs. Anna Haas of Borden. She died at the home of her son, Julius, at Borden Sunday morning, after an illness of several weeks. Her husband, Joseph, preceded her in death June 24, 1906, at the age of 55 years. Mrs. Haas was born Aug. 2, 1849, at Kunzendorf, Moravia, Austria. In 1884 her husband emigrated to this country and she followed him with the children in October, 1889. The Haas family settled in the vicinity of Schulenburg, where they remained nine years, afterward moving to Borden. Four children survive their beloved mother: Mrs. Mary Dach, Burlington; Mrs. Antonie Futschik, Shiner; Julius, and Mrs. Emilie Bannert, Shiner. The deceased was well-known in our community, and the whole vicinity deeply deplores her departure. The great participants at the burial of her earthly remains is evidence of how beloved she was. Father Strobel from Columbus consecrated the corpse in the Roman Catholic church, and offered consolation to the grief stricken survivors in a moving speech, after which he led the solemn ceremonies to the burial. We tender our heartfelt sympathy to the mourning survivors.
May she rest in eternal peace. A friend.
