PETER C. JANTZ

Peter C. Jantz was born Dec. 18, 1892, near Marion, S. D., son of Cornelius and Maria Nickel Jantz. At the age of 10 years he moved with his family to Washington, to a homestead near Krupp. He received his education at Bethel College Academy, Ellensburg Normal School, and at Eastern Washington College of Education.

On June 4, 1911, he was baptized upon confession of his faith into the Salem Mennonite Church of Ruff by Rev. P. R. Aeschliman.

While attending Bethel Academy, he met Olga Schmidt, and on June 12, 1916, they were married by Rev. G. N. Harms at the Grace Hill Church near Newton. Father and mother went back to Washington to live. To this union were born three children: Willard, Adelia and Vern.

In 1951, after 27 years in his chosen profession of teacher and principle [sic] of the Odessa Grade School, dad's work was honored when the new Odessa Grade School was dedicated as the P. C. Jantz Elementary School. In 1954, after a total of 35 years in the teaching profession, he retired and he and mother came to Kansas to make a new home. In December of that year he suffered a severe heart attack, but the Heavenly Father graciously restored him to nearly normal health. Again he could enjoy his gardening and flowers, his work in the church and community, and even travel.

Besides his work in the teaching profession, he served as deacon at both the Menno Church in Washington and Bethel College Church. He was a member of the National Teachers Association, a life member of the PTA and a member of Kappa Delta Pi, national honorary fraternity.

He again suffered a severe heart attack in November of last year. After eight critical weeks in the hospital, mother again was able to bring him home and helped him to regain his strength.

On the afternoon of Sunday, March 3, suddenly his heart stopped and he quietly left this earthly life to be with his Lord, having reached the age of 70 years, two months, and 13 days.

Surviving him are his loving wife, Olga; his children, Willard K. of Wichita, Adelia Marie (Mrs. Melbourne Stucky) of Moundridge, and Vern H. of Liberal, and ten grandchildren. Five brothers preceded him in death, with the following three remaining: John C. and Andrew C. of Ritzville, Wash. and Abe C. of Spokane, Wash.

At the time of his retirement from active teaching it was said that "His moral influence and untiring interest in the welfare of the students during his service to Odessa has left its mark." Surely this can be said of his entire life.
