Mrs. Henry Kaan Passes On After Protracted Illness

Popular Young Matron Succumbs After Valiant Fight Against Malady

Mrs. Henry Kaan, well known and highly respected young woman of this community, and formerly Miss Amelia Frosheiser of Keeline, passed away Sunday morning, May 16, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alex Frosheiser, in Keeline.

Mrs. Kaan was 29 years, 9 months and 25 days of age at the time of her death, being born July 21, 1907. She had been in ill health for several years previous to her death.

Funeral services were held at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Wednesday afternoon. Rev. Bernthal was in charge of the services. Interment was made in the Lusk Cemetery, with arrangements in charge of the Peet Mortuary. Pallbearers were Fred Baars, Charles Heumier, Pete Owens, Walter Klemke, Leo Heins, and James Ringer.

Amelia Frosheiser was born July 21, 1907, at Linclon, Nebraska, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Frosheiser, and passed away at the parental home in Keeline, Sunday evening, May 16, 1937.

Amelia Frosheiser as a young girl came to Keeline, Wyo., with her parents, and attended the Keeline public schools. She has graduated from Manville High School and attended the Lutheran Concordian Teachers College at Seward, Nebraska, for two years. Returning to Wyoming, she taught school in the Keeline community for several years.

Finally, due to ill health she was forced to abandon her teaching career. On July 6, 1936, she was united in marriage to Mr. Henry Kaan of Lusk, and her husband and four stepchildren are left to mourn her passing. The children, to whom she was fondly devoted, are: Henry Lafayette, 13 years of age; Mable Ardeth, 8; Henrietta Jean, 7, and Vivian Narcissa, 5 years old.

Members of the family surviving are her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alex Frosheiser, Sr.; four brothers, Conrad and George of Lusk, Alex Jr., of Douglas, and Fred, who is a student at the University of Wyoming ; four sisters, Mrs. Uno Korhornan of Ranchester Wyo., and Elizabeth, Wilhelmina and Catherine, who reside at the parental home in Keeline.

All members of the family were present at the services Wednesday afternoon. Relatives and friends from Lincoln, Neb., and Wheatland, Wyo., were present for the services.

Mrs. Kaan will be remembered in this community as a worthy friend to all--a dutiful church member, a devoted wife, and a consecrated mother.
