      MRS. ANNA MATEJKA CALLED BY DEATH WHILE RESTING

      Mrs. Emil (Anna) Matejka passed away very unedpectedly, Thursday afternoon, July 22, 1965, while resting. She was 83 years of age.

      Anna Honisky, daughter of Elizabeth (Kral) and Frank Honisky, was born December 18, 1881, of English descendants. She came with her parents and brothers and sisters, to Crete, Neb., where they made their home. Later they moved to a farm south of Exeter, where she grew up and received her education. She lived with the Mr. and Mrs. Charles Thorpe family of Geneva for a length of time, and also lived in Denver, Col., and Pierce, Neb.

      October 31, 1905, she was married to Emil Matejka, and they lived on their farm east of Milligan more than 59 years.

      Among the family events she cherished most were the family get-togethers, and the celebrations of their wedding anniversaries, the 50th and 59th.

      Mrs. Matejka was a lady of many commendable qualities, and was devoted to the welfare of her family. Her self sacrificing devotion to her home and family endeared her to all who came to know her. She will be greatly missed in her home, where her crowning glory was her motherhood. The memory of her serviceable life will remain a sacred and comforting possession for the family relatives and friends.

      She is survived by her husband, one daughter, and three sons, Mildred Fujan; Charles, William, and Alois. Three grandchildren and one great-grandson. She was preceded in death by two sons, her parents, three brothers and three sisters, and one granddaughter Lori LuAnn Matejka.
