OBITUARY:
The community was shocked Tuesday afternoon to learn of the death of Levi Rothenberger, one of Delphi’s
most highly respected citizens.Mr. Rotheniberger was taken critically ill three weeks ago, and because of the seriousness of the malady,little hope was entertained for his recovery. His death, however, was unexpected by his many friends. Mr. Rothenberger was born in Tippecanoe County 71 years ago. Mr. Rothenberger came to Delphi 37 years ago, and bought an interest in the City Mills. He was associated with Henry Montman, and with William Roach, both of whom have passed away. A few years ago he retired from active business. He was a director of the Carroll County Loan & Trust company bank. He was a member of the Odd Fellows lodge.He leaves to mourn his passing his wife, and four children: two daughters, Miss Bessie and Mrs. Mayme Sharp, of this city, and two sons, Manson, of Alhambra, California, and Donald who resides at home. He was a devoted member of the Methodist Church and was faithful in attendance at all its services. Mr. Rothenberger was of a quiet, kindly disposition and found his greatest happiness in his family circle. He was an honest Christian gentleman, and his example will live on in the hearts of those who knew him best. Short funeral services were held at the residence at 2:15 o'clock Thursday afternoon, Rev. Russell B. Kern, of the Delphi Methodist Church officiating.A service was held at Farmer’s Chapel in Clinton County at four o’clock that afternoon, and interment was made in the Bunnell cemetery near by.
