GOSPEL HERALD - Vol. XXXI, No. 9 - June 2, 1938, Page 189, 190, 191, 192
Brenneman - Henry, son of Peter and Catherine (Kuepfer) Brenneman, was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., March 11, 1868; died at his late home in Tavistock, Ont., April 26, 1938; aged 80 y. 1 m. 11 d. His father died when he was four years old, and his mother, as wife of Nicholas Roth, moved to Henry Co., Ia., in 1876, where he went to public school and Sunday school. At the age of 14 years he returned with his widowed mother to St. Agatha, Ont. In his youth he accepted Christ as his Saviour and was received into church fellowship of the East Zorra A.M. congregation by water baptism upon confession of faith, and was a faithful member of this congregation until his death. On March 5, 1889, he was united in matrimony to Sister Catherine Oesch of Huron Co., Ont. This union was blest with 7 children of whom two preceded him in infancy, and 1 son (Elmer) died in 1935. The mother passed away in 1907. On Sept. 24, 1908, he was joined in matrimony to Sister Magdalene Bender of East Zorra, Ont. This union was blest with 1 daughter, who passed away in infancy. He leaves his loving companion, 1 son (Rudolph of Tavistock, Ont.), and 3 daughters (Susanna, wife of Joseph Zehr; Emma, wife of Emmanuel Zehr; Annie, wife of Chris Ruby, all of East Zorra), 22 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. He was the last member of the Peter Brenneman family of 9 children, all of whom passed away in youth and infancy. There also survive 2 stepsisters (Catherine, wife of Martin Eicher, Milford, Neb.; Mary, wife of Dan Troyer, Shickley, Neb.); 1 stepbrother (Ben Roth, of New Hamburg, Ont.). Bro. Brenneman was an active Christian worker. As Sunday school superintendent he served the East Zorra A.M. congregation for nearly thirty years, taking an active part in all services, and also in young people's meeting, where he seldom failed to be present. He also took an active part in using his influence in bringing about the opening of a new place of worship for this congregation at the 17th line, where he attended from the beginning in 1935, as long as health permitted. Funeral services April 29 at the home were conducted by Bro. Jacob R. Bender, and the East Zorra A.M. Church by Bros. Menno Kipfer and Dan S. Iutzi, where a large concourse of friends gathered to pay their last tribute to the departed one. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
Jac. R. Bender
