General Notes:

 Helen Malinda Busch was born on August 18, 1913, at Elmont, Mo., where her parents farmed. She was the daughter of George C. and Malinda A. Brueseke Busch. She went home to be with her Lord on June 24, 2009, in her 96th year.

 

Helen attended Miller School near Elmont. In 1926, when she was in the 8th grade, Helen's father purchased the Spring Bluff General Store and the family moved to Spring Bluff, where she attended school for one year. After graduating from Sullivan High School in 1931, Helen began teaching at rural schools. Between 1931 and 1938, she taught at Miller, Long Ridge, and Spring Bluff schools.

 

On May 21, 1938, Helen married John H. Blesi, who had grown up on a neighboring farm at Spring Bluff. They were married at the home of Helen's parents, George and Malinda Busch. After their wedding, John and Helen moved to Greenville, Ill., where John operated a farm owned by his father, Henry Blesi. Four of their eight children were born to them while they were living at Greenville. The couple returned to Missouri in 1945, moving into a house on the Blesi homestead, where they remained for the next 15 years. Helen had returned to her teaching career, which she postponed when moving to Illinois. She taught at the Sullivan Elementary School for 25 years, retiring in 1978. She had earned her bachelor of science degree in elementary education in 1960 from Southwest Missouri State College in Springfield, now Missouri State University.

 

Helen became a Christian at an early age, first belonging to St. Matthew's Lutheran Church at Elmont. When the Busch family moved to Spring Bluff, they attended Spring Bluff Baptist Church. In Greenville, John and Helen were active in Greenville Free Methodist Church. Back in Missouri, the family attended community services at Spring Bluff Hall until they closed about 1953. They then attended Stanton Community Church until 1958, when they joined the Sullivan First Church of the Nazarene. Helen taught junior high and adult Sunday School classes, and served as church treasurer for many years. She loved her Savior, her church, and her family. Until her health failed, she read her Bible and prayed for each member of her family daily.

 

Helen was preceded in death by her parents and husband; by her brothers, Von G. and Lowell G. Busch; by her sister, Nadine K. Koelling; and by a son-in-law, John D. Werths.

254. Frank W. Jenny (John (Johannes) J. 10, Johann J. 9, Thomas 8, Johannes 7, Hans Rudolph 6, Johannes 5, Felix 4, Hans 3, Felix 2, Peter 1) was born on 2 February 1889 in Union, Franklin County, Missouri, died on 30 July 1965 in Franklin County, Missouri at age 76, and was buried in Union, Franklin County, Missouri City Cemetery.

 

Frank married Helena C. Buescher, daughter of Anton Buescher and Lizzie Alice (Elise) Warnebold, in December 1912. Helena was born on 10 December 1889 in Labadie, Franklin County, Missouri, died on 6 March 1919 in Franklin County, Missouri at age 29, and was buried in Bethel Cemetery in Labadie, Franklin County, Missouri. The cause of her death was from pneumonia.

 

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.

--- A Friend.

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
