In 1861 at the age of 19, Mr. Winkelmeyer responded to the call to the Colors, enlisting in the Union army. For three years he valiantly and courageously defended the cause of the North, acquitting himself with glory. He was present and took an active part in the capture of Vicksburg.

Here they lived five years, whereupon they moved to a farm two miles southwest of Union bordering on the Bourbeuse river. On this farm they stayed for 22 years after which, now thirty years ago, they moved to Union. For many years they had charge of a hotel in Union.

General Notes: Helena C. Buescher's obituary printed in the Union, Missouri newspaper on March 14, 1919

The visitation of Death into a home is perhaps the most unwelcome manifestation of the works of an Almighty Providence that is known to the human mind. But when that visit comes suddenly and takes from the home a mother of small children, at a time when she is so much needed by children and husband, that visit is doubly painful, and brings on it's wings all of the agony and sorrow that human hearts can bear. Such was the gloom and despair that settled over the home of Frank Jenny in St. Louis last Thursday, March 6th, when the Death Angel visited its sacred portal and cruelly snatched from its tender environment, his beloved wife, Helena C. Jenny, nee Buescher. She died of pneumonia following influenza and was ill but a few days.

The deceased was born at Labaddie, Missouri, December 10th, 1889, and was the oldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Buescher of that place. She was 29 years, 2 months, and 26 days of age when the Master called her. She was married December 18th, 1912, to Frank Jenny of Union. To this union two children were born, Letha Adele Jenny and Vance Buescher Jenny, both cruelly deprived of a mother and all her sweet influence before they are old enough to understand their terrible loss. Besides her parents and husband and two small children she leaves one sister, Mrs. L. J. Fink, of Union, and three brothers, Wm. T., Harry and Walter Buescher, all of Labaddie, members of her immediate family , and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn for her.

Mrs. Jenny was well and favorably known here in Union, where she attended high school when but a girl, but where she won the everlasting affection of teachers and classmates, by her sweet and gentle traits of character. It was the happy privilege of the author of this sketch to be one of her teachers at that time, and it was in that relationship of teacher and pupil that he learned to love and respect her for her many queenly attributes, and that feeling has not diminished as the years have gone by, until our admiration for her had become almost a passion. She was a friend on whom one could depend in every crisis, and by her personal magnetism she bound her friends to her with cords of love. Generous she was to a fault, and her lips were never soiled by unkind criticisms of the acts or deeds of others, but with charity for all she left the unkind word unrepeated. She took a keen interest in public affairs, but her one paramount interest centered in her own family and home. She was ever proud of her husband and his achievements, and was to him a real helpmate in all that made for a happy home and family. By disposition and temperament, she was the perfect complement to his character and qualities to such a degree as to insure an ideal family relationship. And to her children she was the embodiment of the mother heart, guided by reason and intelligence. There was no sacrifice too great for her to make for their comfort and wholesome development. She was gentle, kind and industrious and her short life was filled with loving deeds and gentle ministrations, and this old world is better to live in because of her ideals of living. Many lives have been encouraged and inspired by coming in contact with her life. But today the home that she was wont to grace is in deepest gloom and a devoted husband and two little children are sadly bereft of wife and mother just when she was the heart and spirit of that family circle. Despair, grim and unspeakable, tear at their heartstrings and they refuse to be comforted. May the Spirit that can furnish balm to souls in a time like this, comfort and soothe these loved ones in this their hour of trial. And may stoop:

"To see the light of day.
Across the mournful marbles play,
And learn the truth to flesh unknown,
That love can never lose its own.
That somehow, somewhere, meet we must."

The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Lord at the Methodist church in Labaddie last Sunday afternoon after which her body was born to its last resting place in the Bethel cemetery near Labaddie where a large gathering of friends had assembled to pay their last respects to one whom they universally loved. Many floral emblems spoke eloquently of this esteem and love. May we honor her live by imitating her many virtues.

Attorney Frank Jenny Knew How to Get Things Done

By Sue Blesi

Frank W. Jenny was born in Union on February 2, 1889, the son of John J. and Marianna (Biller) Jenny, also Franklin County natives. He was a shaker and mover, worthy of a place in the history of our county.

He graduated from Union High School in 1905 and began teaching in the rural schools of Franklin County, furthering his own education at the State Teacher's College at Warrensburg during the summers. He taught at Spring Creek, Huff, Krakow, Pike's Peak and Oakfield. For 10 years, he worked for the railway mail service out of St. Louis, riding the Rock Island trains to deliver mail to outlying towns, all the while attending night classes at St. Louis University Law School.

Jenny earned an L.L.B. in 1922, passed the bar examination, and opened a law office in Union in 1922. He was associated with Attorney W. L. Cole. In later years, his partners were James A. Cole and Lawrence Davis, comprising the Jenny, Cole and Davis law firm. Frank Jenny served several terms as prosecuting attorney, during which time he was responsible for bringing serial killer Bertha Gifford to trial.

He was a man who knew how to get things done. Retired Federal Judge Lawrence "Larry" Davis, once a junior partner in Frank Jenny's law firm, recalls that Frank Jenny, L. B. Eckelkamp, Lester Dill, and Father Hildner, were responsible for getting the bridge built over the Missouri River in 1934. Attorney Jenny served as Union mayor from 1937 to 1941. During his time in office, the memorial auditorium was built and numerous WPA projects were completed. He was active in the Modern Woodmen of America, the Elks, Lions, the Masonic Lodge, the Union Chamber of Commerce, and the Presbyterian Church. A Republican, he was chairman of the county central committee. In addition to farming 320 acres, Jenny took on the project of re-opening the Virginia Mines (lead) during World War II.

In December 1912, Jenny married Helen C. Buescher, the daughter of Anton and Elise (Warnebold) Buescher. They had two children, Letha (Jenny) Williams, who married L. J. Williams, who owned several theatres and was the son of Dr. and Mrs. D. E. Williams; and Vance Buescher Jenny, who married Alice Goodwin. Both Letha and Vance are deceased. Helen Jenny died in March 1919, leaving Frank to raise two young children. The Buescher grandparents helped him with the children. On February 21, 1928, Frank Jenny married Loraine Mueller, the daughter of Robert and Caroline (Gorg) Mueller of Union. Loraine Jenny was instrumental in starting a library at Union.

After practicing law in Union for 44 years, Frank Jenny died in 1965 at age 76 following a long illness.

When Frank Jenny's father, John J. Jenny, Jr., was working on building an addition to the predecessor of our historic courthouse, he lost a brick-layers' tool. When the building was being wrecked in 1922, he asked Frank's brother, Paul Jenny, to look for the tool, describing the location. Paul Jenny was able to find the tool from his father's description.

The grandfather of Frank Jenny, John J. Jenny, Sr., immigrated from Switzerland in 1844 with his bride, Verona (Tschudy). Their son, John J. Jenny, Jr., was born at Jeffriesburg in 1852.

My husband, Glen Blesi, has long been aware of a family connection to Frank Jenny. In fact, he had been told that Frank Jenny was the closest relative his grandfather, Henry Blesi, had in Franklin County. After a decade of serious research, Glen had determined that the men were 7th cousins, once removed, through the Jenny line. Knowing the connection had to be closer, Glen continued to research. A couple of weeks ago, the mystery was solved when Glen learned through Patrick Wild of Switzerland that Henry Blesi was a second cousin to Frank Jenny through the Tschudy lineage. Verona Tschudy's sister, Katharina Tschudy Blesi, was Henry Blesi's grandmother.

Frank Jenny's son, Vance, named one of his sons Frank Jenny. Young Frank Jenny is an attorney in Franklin County, Washington (state).

General Notes: March 11, 1998
This is the story of the Spanish Flu Epidemic as told to me by my mother, Wilma Doerr who was born March 5, 1900
Wilma was born and raised on a small farm outside Union, Mo. On her 17th birthday, she came into Union and worked for a large shoe factory. She may have caught the flu at the shoe factory, but at the same time, a very serious type of measles was also present. My Mother came down with the flu and measles at the same time.
She was staying with an older sister (Hallie) in Union. Since he was the one and only doctor, Dr. Edward Stierberger was really stretched thin by all the illness. There was nothing he could do in the way of medicine. The sister applied cold, wet sheets to her entire body, night and day and the good doctor came by 3 or 4 times a day to check on her and give further orders. For three nights in a row, he came and spent the night at my Mother's bedside. Since it had been days that he had been able to go to bed, he ordered my aunt to let him sleep an hour at a time and then to wake him up to check on his patient. He slept on a straight chair by the bed. My aunt had a small daughter (Irene) and Dr. Stierberger ordered the child out of the house. When my aunt said she had no one to keep her, the doctor said to take her to a neighbor and tell them to keep her.
Finally at the end of a long week, Wilma's fever broke and she began the road to recovery. When she was finally able to return to her shoe factory work, she went to Dr. Stierberger to start paying her bill. He asked how much she was making at her job which $2.00 or $3.00 per week. He told her to forget the bill as she needed it more than he. Wilma lived to be nearly 90 years.

General Notes: Vance Buescher Jenny, who spent most of his long life in Franklin County, was a patient at Missouri Baptist Hospital twice in his life. He was born there April 16, 1917, and passed away there after a short illness Monday, April 5, 2010, a few hours after his 93rd Easter Sunday. Mr. Jenny was the son of a longtime Union attorney, Frank W. Jenny, and wife Helena, nee Buescher. He was stricken with polio when he was just 1 year old, leaving him with lifelong physical challenges. He was widely admired for the way he quietly overcame what some would have considered a disability. His mother, Helena, who had so lovingly cared for him during his early illness, herself succumbed to the great influenza epidemic of 1919 before her son's second birthday. Her obituary in the March 14, 1919, edition of the Union newspaper was written by Charles Cole, the founder of Union High School. Cole had been Helena's teacher and would later be Vance's. Cole reported that Vance and his sister, Letha, were "both cruelly deprived of a mother and all her sweet influence before they are old enough to understand their terrible loss." After his mother's death, Mr. Jenny's childhood was divided between his father's home in Union and his maternal grandparents' farm along the Missouri River in Labadie. Mr. Jenny received his schooling in Union. Along with his father and eldest daughter, he was honored in the early 1960s as the first instance of three generations graduating from Union High School.

He met his soul mate, Alice Goodwin, in the summer of 1940 on the dance pavilion of the American Legion Park, Pacific. When they had another chance meeting on a St. Louis streetcar a few weeks later, he immediately recognized her. Apparently, less smitten, she did not remember him. But over time, she came to appreciate his inner qualities and they were married June 21, 1941, at St. Peter's Evangelical Church, St. Louis. Four children were born of this marriage. Alice died of cancer in 1977 at the age of 56 after 35 years of marriage. Vance looked after her grave for the next 33 years. He married Bernice Scheske in 1979. They enjoyed 14 years of retirement, dividing their time between Missouri and Florida. She died of cancer in 1993.

Mr. Jenny's first job was at Busch's Hardware Store on the courthouse square in Union. He also was a volunteer firefighter. Since he worked next door to the fire station, he was usually the first to arrive and drove the fire truck. After a time, he migrated to St. Louis, where he mastered the electrician's trade. His skills as an electrician were often donated to churches and civic groups over the years. With America's entry into World War II in the early 1940s, Mr. Jenny was disappointed to learn his polio affliction prevented him from serving in the military. He argued with the Army brass that his inability to pass a physical wouldn't keep him from doing any number of vital jobs, such as being a mechanic. But rules were rules, so Mr. Jenny went to work for a new company that had started near the St. Louis Airport called McDonnell Aircraft. Some warned him against working for a defense contractor that was sure to close once the war was over, but he considered it his contribution to the war effort. He eventually worked for McDonnell and its successors for 36 years. He started as an electrician with McDonnell and soon became the electrical maintenance foreman on the night shift. The men on his crews were like members of his family. Co-workers remember him as a supervisor who was never criticized by anyone. For over 3 decades, he was there as the electrical facilities were added to each new building. Mr. Jenny prided himself in knowing every electrical installation in the complex, often remarking, "If there was a fire anywhere in the plant, I'd know right where to go to shut off the power." When carpooling and commuting became commonplace in the 1950s, he was delighted to move back to Franklin County in 1953. From that point forward, he made his home in the Union and St. Clair areas.

Mr. Jenny was baptized in infancy at Labadie Methodist Church and later confirmed at First Presbyterian Church of Union. He served as a deacon of the latter church, where his wife, Alice, was an elder and longtime Sunday school teacher.

He was a longtime member of the Union Saddle Club. He served as the club's president for three years and his wife, Alice, was secretary. Mr. Jenny was president when the saddle club grounds were purchased and was very involved in the development of those grounds. His name is included on a plaque in the saddle club building honoring prominent members. He was a charter member of the Union Optimist Club and he and Alice were quite active in that organization's youth programs for a number of years. He also was a 4-H electricity project leader for many years. Mr. Jenny remained active until shortly before his death. He purchased his first computer at 89 and even in his 90s continued to make new friends and pursue new interests. Early in life, he developed a close bond with his first cousin, Emmett Fink. Their mothers were the Buescher sisters from Labadie. Neither had a brother and their relationship came to resemble that of brothers. Mr. Fink survives him. For over nine decades Mr. Jenny enjoyed an especially close relationship with his beloved only sister, Letha Williams. Her death two years ago at the age of 93 was a great loss to him. Others who preceded him in death included his mother, Helena Jenny, in 1919; his father, Frank W. Jenny, in 1965; his stepmother of more than 50 years, Lorraine Jenny, in 1984; and his brother-in-law, L.J. "Bill" Williams in 1988.

Those who survive him include four children, June Andersen and husband Hans, California state, Carole Jenny M.D., and husband Thomas Roesler M.D., Rhode Island state, Frank Jenny and fiancee Terri Ann Henricks, Washington state, and Alice Lee Williams and husband Jim, North Carolina state; seven grandchildren; one great-grandchild; two nieces, Pam Van Nieuwenhuize, California state, and Janis Wilson and husband Richard, Alaska state; three grandnephews; one grandniece; his cousin, Emmett Fink and wife Jeanne, Union, and their children, Prudence Fink Johnson and husband Nels, Union, and Patti Fleer and husband Roger, Washington, and their four grandchildren; the residents and staff of Crabapple Village Retirement Community, St. Clair; other relatives and many friends.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations to County Seat Senior Foundation, in memory of Vance. B. Jenny, County Seat Senior Citizens Center, 1329 N. Union Ave., Union, MO 63084. The Missourian

MY LIFE:

I was told that when I was four in 1942 and my mother was pregnant with my brother Richard, we had to be removed from a flooded home in a row boat. It was near the Mississippi River near Foley, Missouri. My dad was a guard at the Lock and Dam during World War Two.

When my uncle who was in the Marine Corps came home from fighting the Japanese, he gave me a large red fire truck for my birthday. This was the same day he got married. One summer he let me use his carbine from the Marine Corps to kill snakes on my great-grandfathers farm.

I went to Immaculate Conception grade school. I was the teachers pet for all eight years because I always helped them. At the end of the school year, the nuns always gave me some gift. When I was in grade eight, I did their errands for them during school time and in the summer I would help them also.

After grade school, I was going to study to be a Catholic priest. My biggest mistake in my life was that I did not do it.

Then I went to St. Francis Borgia High School. No sports or anything after school because I had to ride the school bus and did not have a car. My last year at school, I was the artist for the school paper and year book.

When I became 16, (sophomore in school) I joined the National Guard (Heavy Mortar Company). Since I did not have a car, my sergeant would take me to the weekly meetings. In the summer we spent two weeks at an army base. We had training in riot control in case of a riot at the state prison. After I was 18 years old, I enlisted in the Navy but failed my physical. The Draft Board made me 4-F. I received an honorable discharge 8 years later.

My summers before I was 18, I spent walking or riding my bike around town and visiting the lady at the Draft Board and my great aunt, who was the secretary to the County School Superintendent. Also talked to the old men who spent their time sitting on the benches at the courthouse. Also spent time at the soda counters. Learned a lot from these people.

Had different jobs from 1956 to 2000. Run a bowling alley, 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Ground up meat for a pot pie factory. Inventory control at a factory that made metal sewer pipes. St. Louis Police department telephone switchboard keeping track of beat policeman (before walkie-talkies) they used phones (call boxes) on street corners to call in once an hour. Counting money at a bank and working in the stockroom and printing department at the same bank. Inventory and Quality Control at a place that made wall paneling. Shipping clerk at a shoe factory. Quality Control at a factory that made ring binders and office supplies.

Had to retire early in 2001 because the place where I worked moved to Mexico. Had to sell house and used the profit to buy a used mobile home. Over the years, four places that I worked at closed their doors. Over the years because of the closings, I had lost two homes, one mobile home and three cars.

MY HOBBY:

Since 1985, I have been researching families that are related to me and my family. I started out with a little note book that my dad had written that had his siblings and uncles and aunts.

Then I went to a lot of cemeteries checking for relatives. Also wrote to every one in Germany that had my dad and mom's last name. After I got internet service in the 90's, I put what I had on a website. Some saw the website and sent me information from Germany, France, Netherlands and United States.

One day going to a cemetery, my son and I almost died when we were going down a hill (at bottom is Missouri River) and the brakes on the car did not work. I made a quick right turn and the car hit a ditch right at the cemetery that we were looking to check. After checking the cemetery and getting pulled out of the ditch, I drove the car 85 miles back home without brakes because it was Sunday and no repair shops were open. Found out later that the brake line broke and leaked fluid.

Now you can check on the internet for the same information that I risked my life to get. Makes it a lot easier.
