THE TILLER AND TOILER, 5 December 1929
Death of Mrs. Conrad Gleis

Anna Marie Hoffman was born at Musbush, Phine Paltz, Bavaria, November 7, 1847. At the age of fourteen she was confirmed into the Protestant Evangelical Christian church.

In 1870 she was married to Philip Jacob Bauer. To this union her only child, Jacob Bauer, now of Burdett, was born.

In 1880 her husband died. She came to America thirteen years later and made her home with her son until 1909 when on the 25th day of June, she was married to Conard Gleis, a widower who had one son of his family at home, Philip Gleis of Burdett.

After his death in 1918, she again made her home with her son, where she remained until her death, which occurred at 5 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, after an illness of about seven weeks.

Mrs. Gleis leaves to mourn her death her son, Jacob Bauer, of Burdett, five grandchildren, Philip, and Mrs. Marie Walker, of Burdett; George of Larned; Mrs. Louise Norman of Garden City, and Mrs. Katie Eyers of Pleasant Hall, Penn., also eight great grandchildren and many friends.

For a number of years Mrs. Gleis had been a familiar figure on the sidewalks to and from the post office where she was seen performing a self appointed task of getting the mail. Many in all walks of life would pause to greet her and many who did not know German, seemed to understand her greeting.

She will long be remembered for her sunny smile and her happy disposition. She lived to be more than 82 years of age.

Funeral services were conducted from the home by Rev. C. H. Ruff, assisted by Rev. Markel. A quartet, Ed Notestine, Mrs. G. F. Mather, Mrs. Geo. Van Meter and Lest Preston, sang. Mrs. Geo. Bindley accompanied at the piano.

The pall bearers were L. L. Engleskirker, John Maur, John Patrick, George Bindley, Rex Mather and George Wiedemann. The remains were laid to rest in Brown’s Grove cemetery, where the grave was covered with beautiful flowers.

The sorrowing ones have the sincere sympathy of many friends.
