Elsie Schlichenmayer Weisshaar  --  1980

    Elsie Margaret Weisshaar, oldest child of David Christina (nee Bauer)  Schlichenmayer, was born on Feb. 21, 1919 at the family homestead 12 miles north and two miles east of Bethune. She was baptized and confirmed in Immanuel Lutheran Church of Bethune, and was a life long member of the congregation.  She taught Sunday, school for over 30 years, many sessions of summer Bible school, held various offices in the ladies organization and was very active in serving her church. 
     She was united in marriage to Karl Weisshaar on April 4, 1937 and they made their lifelong home on a farm 10 miles north and three miles east of  Bethune.  Two children were born to their union, Bruce in July 1950 and who died in infancy, and Terry, born on Oct. 10, 1952, who still remains at home. 
    She was proceeded in death by her father in 1956 and her mother in 1958 and her infant son. 
    She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband Karl; her son Terry; her brother, James Schlichenmayer and family of Burlington; several brothers and sister-in-laws, and a host of friends and relatives. 
    Elsie passed from this life on [Eastern-sic] Easter  morning, April 6, 1980, just as the sun was appearing on the horizon.  Her time in this life was 61 years, l month, 14 days.  She had just celebrated her 43rd wedding anniversary two days before her death. 
     Her funeral service was held and at Immanuel Lutheran Church on April 9, at 1:30 p.m. The men's choir sang "'Beyond the  Sunset"  and  "The Old Rugged  Cross".  Bob Hendricks  sang "How Great Thou Art" and the congregation sang one of Eisie's favorite hymns, "Children of the Heavenly Father"   Jean Weisshaar was the pianist and Lois Jacobson the organist. 
 Casket bearers were:  David, Lester and Roy Schlichenmayer; Phil Hooker, Virgil Eslinger and Harold Weisshaar. 
      Honorary casket bearers were Lawrence Knodel, Garvin Wiedman, Pete Schlichenmayer, Albert Weiss, Walt Bauer and Junior Weisshaar.  Interment was in the family plot in Immanuel Cemetery. 
     Elsie will be greatly missed by her family, her congregation, her many friends in the community.  Much of her life was spent in helping others and making others happy.  She lived an active, productive life and was involved in many community functions until a heart attack in October 1978 forced her to a very limited schedule.  She underwent a very serious hear operation at St. Joseph's Hospital, in Denver in August 1979, and had made a good recovery.  Her witness for Jesus throughout many hard as well as happy times always remained strong.  Elsie loved her church and gave of her best in its support.  Blessed be her memory among us! - Pastor Howard Jacobson.
