The Late Mr. A. Henschke,
THE parish of Hawker has lost one
of its most prominent members
in the death of August Henschke, late
of Hookina, father of the Most Rev.
Dr. Henschke, Bishop of Wagga. Hav-
ing attained the age of 81 he passed
to his eternal reward on the feast of
the Holy Family, January 11. He
had been one of the first settlers in
the district, coming North from his
home town, Clare, in 1880. He settled
at Hookina in 1882, and there
lived until 1936. During his life he
was an exemplary Catholic, and it was
only to be expected that he should
desire to spend his declining years
close to the church. He came in to
live in Hawker, and for the last six
years of his life his day commenced
with Mass and Holy Communion.
The lessons of sanctity which he
knew so well and practised, he did not
fail to impart to his children, and
God blessed his efforts in giving to
five of them vocations. He lived to
see one son raised to the episcopacy,
two others Missionaries of the Sacred
Heart, another a Brother in the same
Order, and a daughter a Sister of Our
Lady of the Sacred Heart.
His last days were a fitting climax
to a life which had been lived in the
continual presence of God. With resig-
nation to God's holy will he bore his
long illness, and patiently awaited his
final summons.
Of his eleven children the follow
ing members are still alive:—Most
Rev. F. A. Henschke, D.D., Bishop of
Wagga, Rev. Fr. G. Henschke, M.S.C.,
Rev. Fr. W. Henschke, M.S.C., Rev.
Bro. P. Henschke, Mother M. Concep-
ta. May his soul rest in peace.
