a. Note:   Dyersville (Iowa) Commercial Jan. 31, 1924 ** New Vienna, Iowa, Jan. 30,1924 -- The life of a good, kind mother and friend came to a close this morning at 1230 when the angel of death summoned Mrs. John Heying to her reward. Mrs. Heying had been in failing health for some time and the past several weeks her condition was serious and all medical skill and loving hands could do failed to halt the hand of death. Mrs. Heying was a native of Germany and she was born at Ressling-Hausen, June 25, 1851 and was nearly 73 years old at the time of her death. Her maiden name was Antoinette Bohnenkamp and she came to America with her parents, when she was eleven years old, and settled on a farm near Petersburg, Iowa where she grew to young womanhood, and on Nov. 17, 1867 she was united in marriage with Mr. John Heying, the ceremony taking place in St. Boniface Church, New Vienna, Iowa and was performed by the late Father Orth. The couple settled on a farm near Luxemburg, Iowa which place was their home until 1909 when they retired from farming and moved to New Vienna, which was her home up to the time of her death. Thirteen children were born to the union two of whom died in infancy and George Heying, died on June 19, 1922. Together with Mr. Heying, ten children survive as follows; Joseph Heying, of Breda, Iowa; Katherine, Mrs. Joseph Langel, of Dyersville; Mary, Mrs. Herman Kluesner, of New Vienna; Henry Heying, Petersburg, Iowa; Frank Heying, Albion, Nebraska; John Heying, Cold Springs, Minnesota; Barney Heying, of Richmond, Minn.; Ernest Heying of Groten, Minn.; Peter Heying of New Vienna, Iowa, and Nora, Mrs. Joseph Klostermann, of New Vienna, Iowa. She is also survived by the following sisters and brothers. Mrs. Joseph Scherbring, Dubuque, Iowa; Mrs. Rudolph Lammers, Remsen, Iowa; Mrs. Joe Heying, Winner, S.D. and Mr. Joseph Bohnenkamp of Dubuque, Iowa. Mrs. Heying's life was one of usefulness. Living in this community in the pioneer days, she learned the finer lesson of life acquired through the hardships and trials, and she instilled into the hearts of her large family of children the virtues of good clean living and by her every day acts set an example of all that in honorable and sincere in a thoroughly Christian life. No mother could do more nor could mean more to her family of children than did Mrs. Heying, in the home in which she was loved and admired, and from which her gentle voice, hushed, will be sadly missed. She was a lifelong member of the Catholic Church and remained faithful to its teachings. The funeral will be held Friday morning from the family home to St. Boniface church were services will take place at 930 am. Antonetta Bohnenkamp migrated to the United States with her parents about 1856 and they settled in the Dubuque, Iowa area. On 12-17-1867 she married John B. Heying who was born in Luxemburg, Dubuque County, Iowa on 12-23-1848. They were married by a Catholic priest, the Rev. John B. Weikman, but his church is not mentioned on the marriage record. The wedding took place in New Vienna, Iowa. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
