Pernicious Anemica Claimed Old Settler
After Lingering Illness

Mrs. Jacob Brenner, aged 66 years, died at the Charlotte Swift Hospital at 7 o'clock this morning after a lingering illness of two years from pernicious anemica. She was a resident of College Hill.

The funeral services will be conducted by Rev. J. M. McClelland at 2 PM tomorrow in the Methodist Church.

The Brenner family came to Manhattan 15 years ago to take advantage of the town's educational features and the family has lived here ever since.

Mrs. Brenner was attacked by this dreadful disease, pernicious anemica, about two years ago, and never fully recovered, although at times she seemed quite strong again. Every method of treatment known was given, even infusion of the blood.

Mrs. Brenner, formerly Charlotte Smith, was one of the early settlers of Kansas, coming from her native state, Ohio, to Bourbon County about 45 years ago. She taught several terms of school before her marriage with Mr. Brenner. She joined the Methodist Church at an early age and has stood strong in the faith ever since.

She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, Jacob Brenner; a sister, Mrs. Rissa Akers; two daughters, Mrs. Viva Morrison and Miss Edna Brenner; two sons, Mr. and Mrs. G. K. Brenner; Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Brenner; and eight grandchildren, Frank and Hope Morrison and Margaret, Miriam, Paul, Robert, Francis and Raymond Brenner.
