Lena Englebarts Ketelsen
March 1, 1899–August 18, 1919
Death Of a Young Woman

The funeral of Lena Englebarts was conducted at the Zion Lutheran church in Wayne township, this morning, at 11 o'clock. The funeral services were conducted by the pastor of that church Rev. John Willms.
The deceased was taken sick four weeks ago, and her condition became rapidly worse, so much so, that she was brought to Monticello for medical treatment, and died last Monday morning, August 18th. She was born March 1, 1899, near Buffalo, Iowa, and when two years of age removed with her parents to a farm south of Amber. She was married to John Kettlesen about four years ago. Her father, Bernhard Englebarts, died in 1912, and she is survived by her mother, Mrs. Lena O. Englebarts, a three year old daughter, Lena Bernice Kettleson; three brothers, F. Englebarts, of Anamosa, and Herman and Ben Englebarts, of Amber; two sisters, Mrs. Edward Nichols, of Illinois, and Mrs. George Schoon, of Amber.
Lena was confirmed in the Zion Lutheran church of Wayne township, in 1914, by Rev. S. Mardorf, the former pastor of that church. Her death is a severe shock to her many friends who will be deeply grieved to hear of her death.
