 Rev John Heinzlmeier Text File


Rev. John Heinzlmeier has for the past eight years officiated as priest of St. Mary's church at Willey. His birth occurred in Bavaria, Singenbach, Germany, on the 24th of January, 1870, his parents being Joseph and Mary (Stegmeier) Heinzlmeier, both of whom were natives of that country. The father, who was an agriculturist by occupation, passed away in Germany, in which country the mother still makes her home.


Rev. John Heinzlmeier obtained his education in the graded and high schools of the fatherland and in 1887 crossed the Atlantic to the United States, reaching New York on the 10th of October of that year. Making his way to Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, he there attended St. Vincent's College for five years. Subsequently he spent three years at St. Bernhard's Seminary at Cullman, Alabama, and then entered St. Meinrad Seminary in Spencer county, Indiana, where he was ordained. He was first appointed assistant to Rev. Frank Schulte of the Remsen (Iowa) parish and later spent three months with Father Joseph Keumper at Carroll. On the 6th of August, 1903, he became pastor of St. Mary's church at Willey, where he has since labored with consecrated and untiring zeal. The school and parsonage, two handsome and modern structures, were completed in 1907, while the present house of worship, which was erected at a cost of about thirty-five thousand dollars, was completed in January, 1910.
