Mrs. Jacob Brenner

Margaret, wife of Jacob Brenner, was born in Cumberland Co. Pa., Oct. 24, 1836, and died at Berrien Centre, Michigan, Sunday, May 5, 1901 aged 64 (sic) years, 6 months, and 11 days. For about three years Mrs. Brenner had been a patient sufferer.

She was married to Jacob Brenner February 21, 1856, and came with her family to Berrien Centre, Michigan, in the spring of 1865. To Mr. and Mrs. Brenner were born four sons and four daughters; two of these were buried in Pa. and two at Berrien Centre.

The surviving children are David E. of Silver Creek; William H. and Anna R, wife of B.J. Sparks of Berrien Centre; Ida E. wife of Edwin E. Sparks of Niles. Mr. Brenner and these sons and daughters, who were ever kind, faithful and true to the precious, loving and adorned wife and mother, now departed, mourn not for her as do those without hope. To the writer Mrs. Brenner gave evidence of strong faith in Christ and hope for the future.

I copy from the Carlisle Daily Herald of Pa. as follows: "Besides her husband and children she is also survived by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. John N. Clingan, of Padue, Ill. Mrs. Martin Duey and Mrs. Joseph Duey of Chester, Neb. Wm. C. Wolf of Plattsburg, Mo., John and Joseph Wolf of Middlesex township, this Co. Mrs. Brenner was the daughter of the late David Wolf.

Mrs. Brenner was a christian woman and united with the Reformed church when quite young. She was of a cheerful disposition and ever ready to lend a helping hand to those in need and assistance, she was a kind and affectionate wife and mother; she had many friends here and in Cumberland Co. the place of her birth, who will be sorry to learn of her death."

To the above we wish to add, Mrs. Brenner's thirty-six years residence at Berrien Centre endeared her to all who knew her and a large circle of neighbors and friends, with the bereaved relatives will greatly miss her.

The funeral services conducted by Rev. J. F. Bartmess at the Berrien Centre church where the interment took place.

Mrs. Brenner was the daughter of the late David Wolf and was born in Middlesex township, this county. After her marriage for some years she resided in Dauphin county (sic) then removed to Michigan and has been residing at the place where she died for about 35 years. Mrs. Brenner was a Christian woman and united with the Reformed Church when quite young. She was of a cheerful disposition and ever ready to lend a helping hand to those in need of assistance. She was a kind and affectionate wife and mother. Mrs. Brenner had many friends not only in the place she resided, but in Cumberland county (sic), the place of her birth, who will feel sorry to learn of her death.
