Obituary of Jennie Kleckner

(July 12, 1874 – February 27, 1920)

(Age 45)


Jennie Kleckner was born at Fowler, July 12. 1874 and departed this life, February 27, 1920, age 45 years, 7 months and 15 days.


She was united in marriage to Pearl Williams, and to this union were born three children,  Mrs. Coyno Slater of Owosso, Bernice and Arcie at home.  She also leaves a father, two sisters, one brother and three grand children, besides a host of other relatives and friends.


She was a membe o fht M. E. Chruch.  A good woman has been taken from our midst.  She 2as a good neighbor, always ready to lend a helping hand, and always a kind word and cheery smile for all.


She will be greatly missed in the home, where ber untiring devotion in hard to excell. No sacrifice was too great for her to make for those she loved.


One of her main anibitions was to see her children educated.  To this end she toiled unceasing ly, and last June, with the class of 1919, had the pleasure and satisfaction of seeing her youngest finish their high school course.


She was a loving and faithful wife and to the sorrowing companion and children we would say:


Weep not that her tolls are over,

Weep not that her race is run.

God grant we may rest as calmly,

When our work like hers, is done.

Till then we yield with gladness

Our mother to Him to keep,

And rejoice in the sweet assurance,

He giveth His loved ones sleep.

Not now but in the coming years,

It may be in the better land.

We’ll reaad the meaning of our tears,

And there, sometime, will understand.
