Stein3Henrietta M. Stein, age 93 of Oldenburg, died Thursday, July 3, 2014 at her residence. Born April 28, 1921 in Franklin County Indiana, she is the daughter of Elizabeth (Nee: Nunlist) and Jacob Werner. She married Joseph Stein Sr., November 20, 1941 at Holy Family Church in Oldenburg and he preceded her in death April 24, 2004. A homemaker, Henrietta was also a charter member of the New Horizons Service Guild and a member of Holy Family Church.

Her family referred to mom as the perfect farmer’s wife. She loved her cows and could watch them on the hill from the house. Henrietta spent years helping her children with their 4H activities from speeches to canning contests to animals. Described as a great cook, “nobody could compete with mom’s roast beef” according to her daughter who also fondly remembers mom’s homemade rolls and donuts. Henrietta was well organized and kept excellent records which in turn kept everything running smoothly. Back in the day, she made most of her children’s clothes, enjoyed gardening, read quite a bit and would occasionally work crossword puzzles. Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren.

She is survived by daughter and son-in-laws Jane and George Bohman of Robinson, Illinois, Janet and Bill Deller of Osgood, Indiana, Edith Stein of Oldenburg, Esther and Jon Winters of Lynchburg, Virginia; son and daughter-in-laws Joe and Millie Stein Jr. of Greensburg, Indiana, Jim and Jeannie Stein of Bay Port, Michigan; grandchildren Brenda Simmonds, Bonnie Wietlisbach, Jared Stein, Jim Stein, Jeff Stein, Joetta Bohman Goda, Julie Maloy, Sonya Proffitt, Steve Trenkamp, Jessica Winters, Sam Winters, Zoe Winters, Jacob Winters; 20 great grandchildren; one great great grandchild and brother and sister-in-law Bill and Betty Stein of Batesville. In addition to her husband and parents, she is also preceded in death by sisters Sr. Rita Werner O.S.F., Elenora Kramer, Gertrude Riedeman, Rita Kramer; brothers Joseph, Matt, Leo and Henry Werner as well as one grandson.

Visitation is Monday, July 7th, from 4-7 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home. A rosary service will be held at 3:45 p.m. Funeral services are 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 8th, at Holy Family Church with Rev.
