John G. Heitshusen is the assistant cashier of the Conroy Savings Bank and holds a position of much responsibility
for one of his years, as he was born on the 3d of October, 1891. He is a native of this county but his parents,
J. D. and Allen (Tietgen) Heitshusen, were both born in Germany, whence in 1875 they emigrated to America and made
their way to Iowa county, Iowa. They settled upon a farm and are still residing in this county.
John G. Heitshusen is indebted for his general education to the common schools of this county and for his preparation
for commercial life to a business college at Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In 1910, when but nineteen years of age, he accepted
a position as assistant cashier in the Conroy Savings Bank, in which capacity he is still serving. He not only
has familiarized himself with the routine of banking but has made it a point to study carefully commercial conditions
in his community and to keep in touch with the trend of business and banking in the world at large. His success
is due entirely to his own initiative and business ability and is thoroughly deserved.
Mr. Heitshusen gives his political allegiance to the republican party and in religion is an adherent of the Lutheran
church. He has many friends in the locality in which his entire life has been spent and the fact that those who
have been most intimately associated with him hold him in the highest esteem is proof that his life has been guided
by honorable principles. He is one of the most prominent of the younger business men of Conroy and is highly respected
in local banking circles.
