Sunday's Obituary - Father George Hindelang

From the October 17, 1945 edition of the Lima News in Ohio:

  Father George Hindelang
  CELINA, Oct. 17 -- Father George Hindelang, 77 pastor of the Immaculate Conception parish here, died Monday afternoon in St. Elizabeth's hospital in Dayton, following a week's illness.
   He was born at Kimrathshofen, Bavaria, and came to America at the age of 17. He received his education in St. Mary's Novitiate at Burkettsville and at St. Charles Seminary at Carthagena and was ordained in June, 1893. He is survived by a number of relatives in Germany and several nieces, one of which, Mrs. William Kraenzler, is of New York City.
  The body will remain at St. Charles Seminary in Carthagena and a solemn funeral mass will be sung in the Seminary chapel, at 10 a.m. Thursday. Burial will be in the Fathers of the Precious Blood cemetery in Carthagena.

Father Hindelang was pastor of the Immaculate Conception Church in Celina, Ohio for many years. He celebrated his Sacerdotal Golden Jubilee there on June 21, 1943 and shows up in many of my family's church records as the officiating pastor.
