Bridgewater Bulletin 22 February 1941

Mrs. Benjamin S. Wentzell

In the passing of Maria Augusta, widow of Benjamin S. Wentzell, at the home of her only brother, Robert S. Whitman, on Saturday evening, Bridgewater has lost one of its oldest and most highly respected residents. The late Mrs. Wentzell was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Robert D. Whitman, and was born at Bridgewater, where she spent almost her entire life, 91 years ago. For a short time she lived in the Annapolis Valley and at Dartmouth, and since the death of her husband, several years ago, has made her home with her brother. She was a woman of remarkable fine character and personal integrity and took a keen interest in present day events. She enjoyed very good health and until her late illness personally attended to her household duties. Mrs. Wentzell was a faithful member of Grace United Church, attending services regularly until advancing years confined her to her home. Surviving besides her brother, are one son, Albert W. Wentzell, of Dartmouth, treasurer of the Nova Scotia Light and Power Co., and Mrs Bertha Tower of Brockton, Mass. The funeral was held from Sweeny's Mortuary Chapel on Tuesday afternoon at 2, thence to Brookside cemetery, where burial took place beside the grave of her husband. The services were conducted by the pastor of Grace United Churh, Rev. J. A. Berridge.
