Karl Weisshaar - 1994

    Memorial services for Karl Bernard Weisshaar were Wednesday, May 25, 1994, at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Bethune, at 10:30 a.m. with Rev. Kim Wilker officiating. Honorary casket bearers were Vigil Eslinger, David Schlichenmayer, Lester Schlichenmayer, Roy Schlichenmayer, Tom Schlichenmayer and Harold Weisshaar.  Musical selections include Old Rugged Cross and Beyond the Sunset by the Immanuel Lutheran Men's Choir.  Interment was in the Immanuel Lutheran Church Cemetery with Godberson Mortuary, Kearney, NE, in charge of arrangements.

Karl Bernard Weisshaar was born Feb. 19, 1910, to Johann and Christine (Wilhelm) Weisshaar at the family farm north of Bethune.  He was the youngest child of 11 children.  He was baptized at Immanuel Lutheran Church on May 1, 1910 and confirmed at Immanuel on April 20, 1924.  Karl was a life long member of this church.  He was united in marriage on April 4, 1937, to Elsie Margaret Schlichenmayer. They made their home on the family farm north o Bethune.  Two sons were born to this marriage.  Bruce Weisshaar was born July 26, 1950, and died the same day.  Terry Weisshaar was born Oct. 10, 1952, and presently lives in Gibbon, Nebr.

Karl lived on the family farm until 1982 when he moved to Bethune for a few years and in 1986 he moved to his house in Burlington, where he resided until March of 1994.  He stayed at Grace Manor for a few weeks and on May 1, 1994 moved to his son's home in Nebraska.  He is survived by his son Terry and his wife Renea and one sister, Anna Adolf of Yuma, and a host of nieces and nephews and friends.  He was preceded in death by his father in 1916, his mother in 1945; his son Bruce in 1950 and his wife Elsie in 1980; his brothers John, Jake and William; and sisters Lena Schlichenmayer, Tina Fischer, Frieda Fischer, Mary Adolf, Margaret Stahlecker and Pauline Schlichenmayer.

Karl farmed in the settlement area north of Bethune all of his life and remained interested and active with his farm until his death.  Karl loved to sing and played several instruments.  He also loved to fish and spend many happy hours sitting by a fishing pole.  He remained fairly active right up to the time of his death.  Karl peacefully died in his sleep at about 2 a.m. May 22, 1994, at Terry and Renea's home.  He will be missed by all.  At his request his remains were cremated and a memorial service held at Immanuel Lutheran Church on May 25, 1994.  His remains will be buried beside his wife at Immanuel Lutheran Church Cemetery, Bethune.
