    History Birth date 18 Dec 1873 (old style).
    Obituary - Our loving father, Henry A. Warkentin, son of Henry and Margaret Wahl Warkentin, was born on the 30th day of December, 1873 in South Russia. Shortly after, he came with his parents to Bunkerhill, Kansas. As a young teenager he recognized his lost condition and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. In the month of August, 1899, he was baptized upon his confession of faith and joined the Mennonite Brethren Church of Buhler, Kansas.
    In the year of 1899 he was united in holy matrimony to Lydia Wahl. This union, which was blessed with one son, lasted a little more than a year. On the 15th day of June, 1902 our father found another companion when he was united in marriage to Mrs. Wilhelmina Kusch Hergert. With this act he assumed the responsibility of being father to one daughter, now Mrs. Louise Karber of Dinuba, California. This second union, which was severed through death in 1933, was blessed with eight children. One son and two daughters have prededed our father in death. On the 27th day of May, 1934, our father was granted his third companion when he was united in holy matrimony to Mrs. Maria Braun Kusch of Reedley, California.
    Our father was a hard working man and sought to do his best for his family. Though he had grievous battles in life, his faith in God did not waiver, and he looked forward to meeting his Lord. He has often, in the last days, assured the pastor and others that the way to God was open and he was prepared for the Ages. During the last two years he suffered with various ailments as the result of his old age; about a year ago he even submitted to an operation to seek some help. He, however, never fully recovered from this experience. It was Saturday night, Oct. 5th at about 11:00 o’clock when the summons same and he left to meet his Maker. He reached the age of 89 years, 9 months and 5 days.
    We rejoice that our father is relieved of his suffering and could find an entrance into the Glories of Heaven. Still, parting always leaves wounds. Those who sorrow his departure are the following: His wife, Mrs. Maria Kusch Warkentin of the Reedley Home of the Aged; five sons all of Fairview, Oklahoma, Arthur, Daniel, Ben, John and Simon; one daughter, Mrs. Martha Regier, also of Fairview, Oklahoma; five daughters-in-law; one son-in-law; 17 grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren, and some added children that came into the family by virtue of his last marriage; he also leaves four brothers, Jacob of Reedley, Aaron of Shafter, California, George of Buhler, Kansas and Daniel of Ogden, Utah; also two sisters, Mrs. Lizzie Koop of Shafter, California and Mrs. Katherine Kusch of Kingsville, Texas.
    Besides these, there are many other relatives and friends who stand by in this time of sorrow.
