Reta Wentzell August, 1935 Bridgewater Bulletin

Claude C. Wentzell, C.N.R. brakeman, and Mrs. Wentzell, will have the sincere sympathy of a wide circle of friends, both young and old, in the passing of their oldest daughter, Reta, whose death occurred at the Dawson Memorial Hospital on Friday afternoon, following an operation for appendicitis. She was just turning her seventeenth year and had been ill only two weeks.

A clever musician with a promising future, Miss Wentzell was one of Miss Gladys Conrad's most talented piano pupils. She was a student of the Bridgewater High School and was a general favourite with her fellow mates. She was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, a pupil of St. Paul's Sunday School, a member of the choir, and of the Young Women's Missionary Society.

Besides her grief stricken parents, she is survived by a younger sister, Barbara, and a brother, Everett; also her paternal and maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Hibbert Wentzell of Wentzell's Lake and Mr. and Mrs. George Ross of Pinehurst.

This is the second time within the past two years sorrow has visited the Wentzell family, Mr. Wentzell having lost his nineteen-year-old sister, Audrey, by drowning in the lake while bathing not far from her home in the summer of 1933.

The funeral was held from St. Paul's Lutheran Church on Sunday afternoon and was largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. C.H. Whitteker. The floral offerings were numerous and beautiful.

With thanks to Rosemary Rafuse.
