Page 1, March 10, 1933, Lake Mills Leader in Lake Mills, Jefferson County, Wisconsin:
Johanetta Bohnsack, the widow of the late John Bohnsack, was the daughter of John Henry Keiner, by his wife Phillippine (Loell) Keiner. Her birthplace was the village of Edingen in Rhenish, Prussia, Germany where she first saw the light of this world, February 1, 1843. Together with her parents she came to America in 1854, when only eleven years old. They settled in Milford Township, Jefferson County, in the primeval forest of Wisconsin, where they started farming in the most primitive way. They were deprived of many of their comforts which they had enjoyed in the old country and their beginning in the new world was one of much toil, accompanied with hardships and inconviences - the common lot of the pioneer settler. Owing to these circumstances Mrs. Bohnsack's school attainments were limited, but her education in the school of life was very thorough, and practical. As to the Christian religion, she received her early training in the Lutheran church of Watertown, where she was confirmed at the age of about 14 years. Later on she joined the Moravian church at mamre, which then was served by the pastor of Lake Mills. In the vicinity of Mamre, she grew up to womanhood and on February 10, 1863 she was married to Mr. John Bohnsack of Milford township. This union was blessed with six children; one daughter died in infacy and one daughter after she bad been married ten years to Mr. Edward Grazel. Her husband also preceded her to the eternal home on Dec. 16, 1925, aged 86 years. The Bohnsack family first lived on a farm not far from the Mamre church, later they secured another farm nearer to Milford, where they resided till 1908. That selfsame year they moved to Lake Mills, where the parents spent their declining days in retirement, having only their single daughter, Lena, with them. The two sons had taken charge of the farms by this time. In the year 1890 Mrs. Bohnsack and her family became active members of the Moravian church at Lake Mills, and up to her death - 43 years - she has been a loyal and faithful member of this congregation. On the first day of February, 1933 mother Bohnsack's 90th birthday, was celebrated in the quietness of her home with only the immediate family circle. For the last six months her strength has been waning, and many of the marks of old age left their impression on her now very frail body. On last Friday evening at 11 o'clock, March 10, 1933, she passed into her eternal rest, aged 90 years, one month, and nine days. Her departure is mourned by two sons, Albert and Frank, both of Milford township, one daughter, Lena, at home, and three granddaughters, the Misses Rachel, and Vera, daughters of Albert and Miss Vernetta, the daughter of Frank. Funeral services were held from the residence only, on College street Monday afternoon, March 13, the Rev. H. Richter officiating. Interment was made on the family lot, in the Aztalan cemetery. The pall bearers were the four elders of the congregation: Fred Howe, Fred. BAuman, Fred Gurr, Rudolph Schattz and one trustee, O. Metzker and Mrs. H. Miller. The flower girls were the following: the Misses Mabel Smith, Ethel Seward and Florence Miller.
