Burial will be in the Beecher Mausoleum. Definite funeral arrangements have not been ascertained, but information will be available at the Hack Funeral Home.
Editor’s note: We never found a complete obituary. Can you help us learn more about Henry’s life? His census records of 1910 (age 45), and 1920 (age 55) list him as a general farmer. The 1930 census (age 66) lists him as a patient at the Kankakee State Hospital. We can’t find him in the 1940 census.

Wife: Emma (Meyer) Rust
Sister & Brother-in-law: Minnie (Rust) Hunte & Henry F. Hunte
Father & Mother-in-law: Diedrich Meyer & Wilhelmina (Bock) Meyer
