  • Notes 
    • BRENNEMAN. Elmer Brenneman was born in Oxford Co., Ont., Feb 10, 1893; died Oct. 28, 1935 at his home at Milverton, Ont.; aged 42 y. 8 m. 18 d. He was married to Sister Laura Oesch of Milverton on June 27, 1917. He leaves his beloved companion, 1 daughter, 2 sons, and his parents. Bro. Brenneman had accepted Christ in his youth, being baptized in the East Zorra A. M. Church. Since marriage he had been a faithful member of the Poole A. M. Church, where he was Sunday School superintendent at the time of his death. He had been laboring in that capacity for some years. He became suddenly ill, suffering from a stroke, from which he was seriously ill for about six days, when the Lord called him home. In his passing the Church loses a faithful, consecrated Christian worker and he will also be much missed in the home and community for his kindly, loveable, and peaceable disposition. We cannot understand why, but we pray to God that he will give us grace that we say, "Thy will be done." Services were held at the Poole A. M. Church by Brethren Jesse B. Martin of Waterloo and Christian Schultz of the Poole congregation. Texts, Phil. 1:21 and I Sam. 20:3. Interment in the adjoining cemetery. The funeral was the largest ever attended at the church.

      Yet again we hope to meet thee
      When the day of life is fled;
      Then in heaven with joy to greet thee,
      Where no farewell tear is shed.
