|John H. Hayen
October 31, 1851–August 10, 1936
|Death Claimed John H. Hayen
At His Home Early Monday
Last Monday morning, August 10 at 12:50, occurred the death of one of Monticello's oldest citizens, John Henry Hayen. He suffered the fracture of one of his hips a month ago, and on Sunday, July 26, submitted to an operation for a strangulated hernia. He successfully passed though this ordeal, but infirmities of old age caused his passing.
In November, 1870, the subject of this sketch emigrated to the United States, and has therefore been a resident of Jones county for the past sixty-six years. He was married to Gesche Harms, December 20, 1877. Mrs. Hayen passed away March 28, 1923. Three years previous to this date—May, 1920—Mr. and Mrs. Hayen retired from their labors on a farm and bought a home in Monticello.
Funeral services were held yesterday morning, August 12, at 10 o'clock, at the family home in Monticello. Mr. Hayen's pastor, Rev. J. Willms, thereafter conducted further services at Zion Lutheran church in Wayne township. Burial was made at the cemetery adjoining the church.
