THEIR LICENSE NO GOOD HERE
Bought License to Wed In Sioux City—Not Valid Here
Miss Anna DeVries and John S. Dykstra were married in Sioux City on Friday,
Sept. 15, by the Rev. John Holwerda at the parsonage of the Christian
Reformed church. They had obtained their marriage license in Sioux City
earlier n the week and returned to Orange City with the intention of being
married here, but found that the Iowa law requires that a couple be married
in the county in which their license is secured. They were accompanied to
Sioux City by the bridegroom’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Marra; his
sister, Miss Jessie Dykstra; the bride’s sisters, The Misses Clara and
Jessie DeVries of Marion, N.D., and Leonard Wilkins and George Boom, also of
Marion. The double ring ceremony was used. In the evening a reception was
held in honor of the newlyweds at the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Marra. The
bride is employed in the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Kolyn and the bridegroom
on the Joe Steensma farm at Carnes. For the present at least they will
continue working in their respective places.
WIDELY KNOWN MINISTER DEAD
Rev. H. J. Heynen Passes Suddenly—Born In Holland
A heart ailment from which he had suffered for many years caused the death
Thursday, Sept. 14, of the Rev. Henry J. Heynen at his home here. Funeral
services were held at 1:30 P.M. from the home and at 2 P.M. from the First
Christian Reformed church on Monday, Sept. 18, with the Rev. R. Bronkema,
Rev. G.W. Hylkema, Rev. J. Heemstra, Rev. P. Bloem of Volga, S.D., Rev. W.
Bajema of Sheldon, Rev. R. L. Haan, Hull, and Rev. L. Ypma of Sioux Center
all taking part. He is survived by the widow, one daughter, Gracia (Mrs. D.
Waanders of Hospers); five sons, Anthony of Midland, Parks, N.J., Ralph,
Henry, James and William of Orange City; one brother, Will Heynen of Sioux
Center, and two sisters, Mrs. Steve Huistein, Sioux Center, and Mrs. M.
VandeHeide of Denver, Colo.
Mr. Henry J. Heynen was born in the Netherlands on February 7, 1868 and came
to this country in 1892. On August 26, 1903, he was united in marriage to
Miss Cora Brink at Holland, Mich. He was a graduate of the Class of 1900
from the Northwestern Classical Academy and completed his education in Grand
Rapids, Mich., finishing his theological course at Calvin seminary in 1904.
He served The Christian Reformed church at Rock Valley, Hull, Beaverdam,
Mich., Platte, S.D., Carnes, Middleburg and again at Beaverdam, Mich. He
also acted as home missionary at Sanborn, Sibley and Inwood. In 1929 his
health necessitated his retirement from active life and he returned to
Orange City with his family. His condition at times was very precarious and
he had been quite ill of late, but the end came unexpectedly. His son,
Ralph, had left early Thursday morning for Grand Rapids, Mich., and an
attempt was made to intercept him at Dubuque, but he reached Grand Rapids
before hearing of his father’s passing. His marriage to Miss Ida Van Wyk of
Grand Rapids was scheduled to take place this week, and since it had been
postponed before due to the illness of his mother, they were married
Saturday morning leaving immediately after the ceremony for Orange City and
arriving here Sunday evening. Anthony Heynen of Middle Park, N. J., also
came home for the funeral. A large number of friends from surrounding towns
attended the funeral services and the church was filled to overflowing.
The annual homecoming of the American Reformed church will be held at the
church parlors on Wednesday evening, September 27, at 8 p.m.

profited by using it for the "Cozy Corner" Cafe. Later on the
Stevens family fortune rose and fell within its spacious walls. It
was subject to an occasional fire, and was finally condemned after
the last fire several months ago. It was then occupied by the Boyden
Bakery. The former City Bakery property and building have been
