    Obituary
    John C. Kliewer was born on January 23, 1898 in Henderson, Nebraska to Cornelius J. and Agnes Hiebert Kliewer. He went to be with the Lord on October 20, 1978, at the age of 80 years, 8 months and 27 days.
    He grew up in the Henderson community and attended the district school and the Bible School. His father was his teacher for a few of those years in the district school. At the age of 19 he invited the Lord to forgive his sins and come into his life, following revival meetings in the Henderson M.B. Church when Abraham Strauss was the evangelist. At the time of the first World War, he, with his family, moved to Hepburn, Saskatchewan, Canada. He was baptized and joined the Hepburn Church Sept. 8, 1918.
    On October 26, 1919, he was united in marriage to Nettie Goertzen. The Lord blessed this home with one son, Alvin.
    Since it became more difficult to farm during the drought years, he brought his family to Fresno, California in the fall of 1937. He worked in the building trade. He became a charter member of the Bethany M.B. Church on January 1, 1942. He faithfully served the Lord in this church, and in his home, where he remembered his family in daily prayer.
    The Lord called his wife of 52 years home to Glory on March 14, 1972. He married Tena Goosen Vogt on May 11, 1973, with whom he shared the last 5 1/2 years of his life on earth. As his wife, I am grateful for the happy years that God has granted us together, and we look forward to the time when we shall meet him in the presence of our Savior.
    He is preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, and his first wife. Those who remain behind include his wife, Tena; his son Alvin of San Jose, three grandchildren Eugene Roy of Kirkland, Washington; Gerald Ray of Grants Pass, Oregon; and Elaine Ruth (Peterson) of San Jose, California. Four great grandchildren Nicholas, Pamela and John, all children of Gerald and Mary; and Corrie Elaine daughter of Eugene and Evalie. One brother, Peter of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; four sisters, Mary Kliewer and Martha Duerksen, both of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; Ida, Mrs. John Schmidt of Dalmeny, Saskatchewan, and Nettie, Mrs. Oscar Woodward of York, Nebraska.
