    • OBITUARY OF CORNELIUS D. GOOSSEN

      Cornelius D. Goossen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Franz M. Goossen, was born September 30, 1913, in Marion County, Kansas, near Hillsboro. When he was 22 years of age he made a stand for Christ and on June 9, 1935, was baptized upon his confession of faith by Rev. P. H. Unruh and joined the Alexanderwohl Church near Goessel.

      On June 2, 1942, he was united in marriage to Miss Hulda Ella Franz. To this union eight children were born. He, with his wife, established their home on a farm in Marion County and lived there about four years. From there he, with his family, moved to Thomas County on a farm five miles south from Mingo. On July 28, 1946, he joined the Meadow Mennonite Church where he remained a member until his death.

      Mr. Goossen loved his family and was deeply concerned about their spiritual welfare. In the year 1951 he joined up with the Gideon workers which was dear to his heart. This work, however, he was obliged to discontinue because of illness. It was about three years ago when Mr. Goossen became aware of some internal complication which later proved to be malignant. This condition slowly became worse with some
      intermission. During this time he was admitted to the hospital at different times. But on October 10 his condition became more severe which made it necessary for him to be confined to the hospital.

      On November 3 at 11:15 A.M. he went home to be with the Lord at the age of 46 years, one month and three days.
      His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Franz M. Goossen and two brothers, William and Heinrich, preceded him in death.

      He leaves to mourn his wife, Hulda; five sons and three daughters, Vernon Alvin, Simon Walter, Andrew James, Harold John, Othelia Susan, Timothy Allen, Arleta Louise and Erna Elaine; seven brothers, Frank of Oakley, John of Marion, Abraham of Colby, Alvin of Newton, Ferdinand of Hillsboro, Edward of Colby and Walter of Musgrove, Okla.; and two adopted sisters, Mrs. Walter Schmidt of Goessel and Mrs. Sam Ratzlaff of Warden, Washington; his wife's parents, Mr. and Mrs. P. J. Franz; brothers and sisters-in-law, relatives and friends.
