Benjamin Grieser
Birth: Jul. 2, 1860
Death: Feb. 2, 1930

GRIESER. Benjamin Grieser was born in Baden, Germany, July 2, 1860; died at his home in Beemer, Nebraska, February 2, 1930; aged 69 years, 7 months. In 1879 he came to America living in Illinois for six years. In 1885 he moved to Fulda, Minn., at which place he was married to Anna Oswald. Here they lived until the spring of 1902, when they moved to Cuming Co., Nebr., where he lived ever since. Early in life he accepted Christ as his Savior and united with the Mennonite Church, in which faith he lived and died a triumphant death. In his last days of suffering he expressed a desire to depart this life and to be at home with Christ where suffering is unknown. He was a very active worker in the Church and Sunday school. He was permitted to see some of the fruits of his labors before his death. He leaves his wife, 6 sons and 6 daughters (Mrs. J. R. Miller, Mrs. John Waters, Mrs. Simon Birky, Mrs. David Erb, Mrs. Menno Erb, Mrs. Julius Kerler, Jacob O., Peter R., Simon, Chris, Bennie, and Daniel). He also leaves 39 grandchildren and 4 sisters (Mrs. Fannie Bertsche, Mrs. Phoebe Hauler, Mrs. John Bernath, and Mrs. Katie Niersthiemer). His parents, 2 brothers, 2 sisters, and 1 son preceded him in death. Funeral services were held at the house and at the church in charge of Bros. Joseph Schantz, Dan Birky, and P. O. Oswald. Text, Jno. 5: 24. Interment in the Beemer cemetery. The Scripture readings, text, and songs were chosen by Bro. Grieser before his death. We mourn not as those who have no hope.
