BENNER - On the 24th of February, 1901; near Mexico, Juniata Co., Pa., of lung fever, Abram A. Benner, aged 44 years, 5 months and 26 days. He was a brother in the Mennonite church; he was a kind husband and a loving father. He leaves a bereaved widow and five children to mourn their loss. His life and death gave evidence of meeting his Savior. The services were held at Lost Creek M.H., where many people met to pay their last respects. Services by Samuel Lieder. Herald of Truth, Vol. XXXVIII, No. 6, March 15, 1901 - Page 94, 95
***Wife of Abram A. Benner Moved to Indiana
Benner.-Louisa, daughter of John and Elizabeth Auker, was born in Perry Co., Pa., May 3, 1857; died at the home of her daughter Elizabeth, Elkhart, Ind., Feb. 20, 1934; aged 76 y. 9 m. 17 d. On Oct. 5, 1880, she was married to Abraham Benner at Harrisburg, Pa. She united with the Mennonite Church in early life and remained a consistent member until death. Her place at church was seldom vacant when health permitted. Her husband preceded her in death on Feb. 24, 1901, at Mifflin, Pa. A year later she moved with her family to Elkhart, Ind., where she spent the remainder of her life. She leaves to mourn her departure Mrs. Arden W. (Anna) Mertz of Thompsontown, Pa., Mrs. Edna Culp, Wilson E. Benner, Mrs. Harry R. (Elizabeth) Carpenter, and John Benner, all of Elkhart, 1 brother of Wadsworth, Ohio, 7 grandchildren, and many other relatives and friends. She suffered a stroke of apoplexy and lived but three days longer. Ten days before her death she attended preaching services and, who thought that this would be the last time she would enter the Church until she would be carried there? This shows the absolute need of being always ready. Funeral services were held at he Prairie Street Mennonite Church, Elkhart, conducted by J. K. Bixler and J. S. Hartzler. Text, chosen by the family, John 14:1-6. Burial in Rice Cemetery. Gospel Herald - Vol. XXVI, No. 49 - March 8, 1934, page 1054, 1054, 1056
