text of obituary:
Dan Jantz, son of Jacob and Susanna Redger Jantz, was born in McPherson County, Kansas on Jan. 2, 1882, and passed away at his home June 9, 1958, at the age of 76 years, five months and seven days.
On March 10, 1912, he was united in marriage to Anna Steiner with whom he shared joys and sorrows for more than 46years. They moved to a farm near Hesston where he lived the rest of his life.
He was converted and united with the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite through baptism in June 1911, in which faith he lived until the end.
Dan was a faithful husband and father, always endeavoring to faithfully carry out his responsibility. For many years he was chairman of the church business committee. He was diligent in whatever capacity he was asked to serve. He was concerned for the salvation of his family and the support of the church unto the end.
He enjoyed good health most of his life until the last few years when he began to fail, slowly weakening until the end. He bore his suffering patiently, quietly waiting the summons to his eternal Home.
Those who survive are his sorrowing companion; six sons and five daughters, Cecil and Jason of McPherson, Marcellus of Varilco, Fla., Marion of Horton, Mo., Glenn of Newton, Donald of Butler, Mo., Bernice, Mrs. Albert Nightengale of Wallace, Kan., Waneta, Mrs. W. W. Amstutz of Topeka, Kan., Emily, Mrs. Harry Nachtigal of Denver, Colo., Adella and Roma of the home; three sons-in-law and four daughters-in-law; 19 grandchildren; four brothers, Abe of Weir, Kan., Emil of Walton, Kan., Ezra of Newton, and Jonas of Los Angeles, Calif.; one sister, Maggie of Crowley, La., and many relatives and friends.
One grandchild, three brothers and two sisters preceded him in death.
Funeral services were conducted Thursday morning, June 12, 1958, at the Meridian Church. Min. Milferd Wenger had opening remarks and prayer, then Min. F. H. Wenger spoke from II Kings 20:1. Internment was in the Meridian Cemetery.
