    (Obituary in 3/17/1923 Humbird Enterprise)
    On the 11th day of Oct. 1866 Mr. Henry Hanusa was born in Schessieh, Germany. Twelve eyars later his father moved to this country and settled in Leland, Sauk Co., Wis. There he was instructed in the chief parts of Christian doctrine and at his confirmation, renewed the pledge he had taken at baptism and promised allegiance to the Evangelical Lutheran Church. By the power and grace of God he was redeemed that promise, and has set a worthy example to all.
    He entered the holy bonds of matrimony with Miss Susanna Winscher, July 2, 1890. This union was blessed with three sons and five daughters, all living: Mrs. Ervin Kelsh, Alma Center; Mrs. Frank Schabel, Dutton, Mont; Miss Nellie, Will, alma Center; Mrs. A. H. Yakes, Lake Geneva; Emil, Arnold, and Elva, all of Alma Center. These can best testify to the earnest Christian rearing and training which he bestowed upon them. His beloved wife, the children, seven grandchildren, one brother, and three sisters are deeply saddened by his departure, but hold fast with the deceased his hope of a reunion in heavenly mansions.
    The span of life allotted to our sainted brother was 56 years, 4 months and 27 days. According to the wisdom of God the last cross of sickness was laid upon him about fourteen months ago. Pain and suffering were the jagged edges of his cross; still he confessed himself a sinner with deep sincerity, and kept a close communion with his Savior and friends, in whose blood he trusted implicitly for his full salvation. The word of God and prayer were wielded as steadily and sturdily by him as arms of war are wielded by soldier of valor, his deep appreciation of the 27th Psalm will long linger in the memory of the bereaved. The German hymns No's. 298 and 430, his own choice, will offer much consolation. It was the wish of Mr. Hanusa that his obituary be permeated with a confession of the faith that was in him, and so a Christian life, lived in the faith of the Son of God, has left an excellent monument to his memory.
    The funeral services were conducted from the Ev. Lutheran Grace Church of Alma Center, Friday afternoon, March 9, and interment made in the Alma Center Cemetery. The Rev. F. J. Geske of Fairchild, delivered a German funeral address, and the Rev. Henry Mueller officiated in the English language.
    Relatives from away who attended the services were: Mr. and Mrs. Gustav Hanusa, Mr. and Mrs. A. Gergolla, Plain; Mrs. Carl Hanusa, Logansville; Mr. and Mr. J. Heinilich, Merrimac; Mrs. Theresa, Madison; John and Gottlieb Wawrock, Denzer.
