Obituary of Jesse Sensenbaugh
The funeral of Jesse F. Sensenbaugh was held from the Church of the Brethren, in Cerro Gordo, Saturday morning, April 11th, at 10:30 o'clock, conducted by Elder Geo W. Miller. Music was furnished by Mr. and Mrs. Stutsman. The burial was in the West Frantz cemetery.
Jesse F. Sensenbaugh, son of G. W. Sensenbaugh and Catherine Sensenbaugh, was born near Oakley, Ill., on May 6th, 1886, and died April 8th, 1925, at the Westley Memorial Hospital, in Chicago, aged 38 years, 11 months and 3 days.
His entire life was spent near Oakley and Cerro Gordo, where he had a wide acquaintance and a large circle of friends. He was united in marriage to Pearl Fiscus March 2nd, 1911, and a little over 14 years they lived and toiled together in their happy home, south of Oakley.
His death was caused by a severe hemorrhage of the nose. Last December he underwent an operation in the Dr. Prince sanitarium, at Springfield, and since that time had been troubled with hemorrhages. In February he went to Chicago, where everything possible was done to check the recurring hemorrhages. Through all the weeks of treatment he felt well and suffered little, except from weakness. During all these days he accepted his lot with a fine, patient spirit until the end came.
He spent the winter of 1905 at Mt. Morris College, where he united with the Church of the Brethren during the revival conducted at the place. He had a strong faith in his Maker.
Jesse was a big-hearted man, charitable and ever ready to help another in need, and was strictly honest in all his business relations. He loved his home and was kind and helpful in his home life. His life was a busy one. Besides his large farming interests, he also operated machinery, for which he had a special liking from his boyhood.
He leaves his wife, who faithfully did all she could for him during his illiness and was by his bedside when the end came. He also leaves his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. George W. Sensenbaugh, and one sister, Mrs. I. D. Heckman, together with relatives and a host of friends to mourn his going away.
He will be missed in many circles, but most of all by those who knew him best.
