Hannah E. Schleef
Nov. 16, 1991 — Aug. 16, 2014
Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised! — Job 1:21 Hannah Elizabeth Schleef was born and baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit on November 16, 1991. She has joined her great grandparents, Walter and Georgia Lucille Theesfeld, and Heinrich and Sophia Schleef; her grandfather, Edgar Marvin Schleef; her aunt, Edith Schleef; and her sister, Breanna Rose Schleef, to be with Jesus for eternity on August 16, 2014.
Waiting still to see God with their own eyes include Donna Au, loving therapist whose gentle care has brought so much comfort and healing to Hannah over the years; Todd and Kay Schleef, Hannah’s parents; Georgia, Jena, Zechariah, Katharina, Dominic and Allianna Schleef, Hannah’s sisters and brothers; Lucille Schleef, her grandmother; as well as other friends and relatives.
The blessings we all have received from the Lord, especially being privileged to be a part of Hannah’s family, are immeasurable as the grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Funeral services will be held Sunday, August 31, at St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Watertown at 1:30 p.m., with the Rev. Michael Jensen officiating.
A visitation will be held at her residence, 814 Jones St. in Watertown, on Saturday, August 30, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and at the church on Sunday from 12:30 p.m. until the time of the service.
Memorials may be directed to St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, St.
