    Funeral Bulletin In Loving Memory - Susie Gerbrandt Enns - November 4, 1912-January 17, 2005 January 21, 2005 - Palm Village Chapel, 701 W. Herbert, Reedley, California.
    Our mother, Susie Gerbrandt Enns, daughter of Jacob and Justina Gerbrandt, was born in Herbert, Saskatchewan, Canada on November 4, 1912. She was the 9th of 12 children. Mother went home to be with the Lord on January 17, 2005 at the age of 92 years and 2 months.
    Mother moved to California with her family in 1923. She accepted Christ as her Savior in 1925 and was baptized on May 26, 1926. She became a member of Reedley MB Church.
    She attended Reedley Elementary Schools. After 2 years at Reedley High School, she worked as a housekeeper for several local families.
    On December 10, 1934, mother was married to Henry Enns. They recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in 2004.
    Mother was always active in church-related activities including the Berean Bible Club, church choir and ladies choir. She served together with our father as deacons for 13 years. She was a member of the sewing circle and served as its chairman for a number of years. She also served on the Dinuba Womens Missionary Service Committee.
    Mother used her skills in many ways. She was a talented seamstress - teaching her daughter how to sew. She left her children and grandchildren many crocheted afghans, tablecloths, and other treasured items. She also had a strong desire for her children to play the piano, and she spent many hours supervising and encouraging them to practice. Many delicious meals were enjoyed by family and friends as she was always prepared for anyone who stopped by.
    Susie became a resident of Palm Village in 2001 where she remained until her death. We will miss our mother dearly because of her deep love and concern for her family and others.

    Mom was preceded in death by her parents, 8 brothers, and 3 sisters. Those who remain and mourn her passing include her husband, Henry, daughter Barbara and husband Dean Kornelsen, daughter Royetta and husband Roger Brandt, and son Bill and wife Rhoda. The next generation family members include 6 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild. A host of nieces, nephews, and three sisters-in-law are among other family members who will miss Aunt Susie. Mother had many favorite Bible verses including John 10:28-29, I Peter 5:7, and John 3:16.
