A funeral service was Saturday, Feb. 19 at the Steen Reformed Church. Burial followed in the East Side Cemetery in rural Steen.

Henrietta Van Wyhe was born May 10, 1937, on a farm east of Hills, the daughter of Cornelius and Alice (Vander Wolde) Van Wyhe. She grew up near Hills and graduated from Hills High School. She then furthered her education at the Swedish Hospital Nursing School in St. Paul, where she received her nursing degree.

On Sept. 5, 1958, Henrietta was united in marriage to Verlyn Bos at Steen Reformed Church.

They lived in Luverne where Henrietta was a nurse at the Luverne Medical Center before moving to a farm near Beaver Creek.

In December of 1965, they moved to the farm southeast of Hills.

Together they raised their family, milked cows, and farmed. The current farm they were living on has been through four generations of dairy farmers. Verlyn passed away on July 9, 2009.

Henrietta was a member of the Reformed Church of Steen and the Swedish Hospital Alumni. She truly enjoyed farming, horses, cutting hay, fishing, mowing, and spending time with her grandchildren, especially holding the babies.
