Veefkind, Mrs. Henry orHarry (? - 22 APR 1912)
Died, at her home in Appleton, Wis., on April 22, 1912, Mrs. Harry or Henry Veefkind. Death came suddenly as she had been in good health up to the time of her death and she was contemplating a visit soon to her daughter, Mrs. Mary Schultz, at Veefkind, Clark County, Wis.
The deceased came to this country from Holland with her husband in 1885 and settled at Veefkind and lived there for sixteen years, when they went to Virginia and stayed there five years, moving from there to Appleton, where she died six years later. Her husband died at the same place a little over two years ago.
Twenty-seven years ago she was a resident of Veefkind and was well and favorably known to many in that place and vicinity, who regretted to learn of her sudden death.
Business cares and their own home circles having encroached upon their time, may have robbed mother of their companionship, but she was ever just the same; rejoicing in their successes and grieving at their misfortunes. They may have grown away from her, but she never from them; they were still her boys and girls. We know that years hence the memory of her unselfish devotions will make them better men and women and her precepts to their guiding light.
She leaves six children to mourn, two sons, Casper Veefkind of Appleton and John Veefkind of Bentley, Alberta, Canada, and four daughters, Mrs. Krak of Holland, Mrs. W. Briggs of Bruce, Mrs. H. J. Van Wyk of Appleton, and Mrs. Mary Schultz of Veefkind.
The funeral services were held at Veefkind on Thursday afternoon, April 25th, at two o'clock and the remains buried in the cemetery at that place by the side of her husband.
