Death Takes Local Jeweler At Age Of 70
C. Henry Schlanderer Dies After Brief Illness At His Home
C. Henry Schlanderer, prominent jeweler and lifelong resident of Ann Arbor, died about midnight last night at his home, 416 Hamilton Pl., after a short illness. He was 70 years old.
A jeweler for 54 years, Mr. Schlanderer was the senior member of Schlanderer & Sons, which he established in 1933. He was stricken Tuesday.
He began his career in 1886 when he entered the employ of the Haller Jewelry store where he worked 25 years. In 1911, Mr Schlanderer and Fred Seyfried formed the firm of Schlanderer & Seyfried, first situated on E. Liberty St. and later moved to S. Main St.
Started Firm in 1933
At the dissolution of that partnership in 1933, Mr. Schlanderer and his sons, Paul F. and Arthur H. Schlanderer, established the present firm at 208 S. Main St.
Mr. Schlanderer was a member of the Chamber of Commerce for many years, and only several years ago delegated that responsibility to his sons. He was also a member of the Bethlehem Evangelical church and of the Brotherhood of that church.
He was born in Ann Arbor, May 17, 1870, the son of the late C. Henry and Fredericka Schlanderer. In 1902, he married Mary Schweitzer, Saline, who survives him.
Other survivors, besides his two sons, include a brother, Edward, of Ann Arbor; a sister, Miss Louise, of Ann Arbor; a nephew, Karl Schlanderer, of Grand Rapids; a niece, Mrs. Florence Werk, Ann Arbor; and four grandsons, Charles, Paul, Mark and William, all of Ann Arbor.
Funeral services will be held at 3:30 Monday afternoon at the Muehlig funeral chapel, and will be conducted by Rev. Theodore Schmale. Burial will be in Bethlehem cemetery. Friends may call at the chapel.
