Brenneman. -- Magdalena, daughter of Jacob and Christena Bender, was born in East Zorra, Ont., Oct. 8, 1868; passed to her reward at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Chris Ruby, Nov. 21, 1944; aged 76 y. 1 m. 12 d. In her early youth she accepted Christ as her Saviour and was received into the East Zorra A.M. Church, remaining faithful until the end. On Sept. 23, 1908, she was joined in holy wedlock to Henry Brenneman, who was called to his reward a little over six years ago. To this union one daughter was born, who died in infancy. Surviving are one sister (Nancy - wife of David Sommers), one stepson (Rudy Brenneman, Tavistock, Ont.), 3 stepdaughters (Susan - wife of Joseph B. Zehr; Emma - wife of Emanuel B. Zehr; and Annie - wife of Chris Ruby), one daughter-in-law (Mrs. Elmer Brenneman, Milverton, Ont.), 22 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held Nov. 24 from the home of her nephew, Noah J. Bender, by Jacob R. Bender, and at the church by Daniel S. Jutzi and Menno Kipfer. Interment was made at the side of her husband in the adjoining cemetery.
