PETER C. RICHERT

Peter C. Richert, son of Kornelius and Aganetha Loewen Richert, was born Sept. 5, 1878 in Marion county, Kansas.

His health had been failing for several months and after a serious illness of two weeks he passed away at his home in the morning of February 11, 1954, at the age of 75 years, 5 months, and 6 days.

He received his education in the Hochfeld school and Bethel College. He was baptized on Pentecost Day, May 29, 1898 by Rev. Peter Balzer and became a member of the Alexanderwohl Mennonite church of which he remained a faithful member until his death.

He was married on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1903 to Mary Schroeder. To this union were born one son and five daughters, of whom one daughter, Marna Mildred, died at the age of 8 months.

Last Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1953, he and mother were privileged to celebrate their 50th anniversary at home with their children and grandchildren.

He followed the occupation of farming and the Lord blessed his labors. He has always been of a quiet disposition. He has encountered many disappointments, difficulties, and battles in life but now has overcome all and is with the Lord. He was always willing to serve his friends and community and held various offices in the church and served on school boards for many years.

He retired from active farming in 1949 and the home was established in Newton. All of his life he enjoyed reading and Bible study. After his retirement he considered it a special privilege to be able to spend much time studying the Bible. He had strong convictions and realized the unfailing mercy of god.

He leaves to mourn his departure his sorrowing companion, Mary; five children: Alice Richert; Irma and husband, Albert Duerksen and their two sons, three daughters, and one grandaughter [sic]; Orlando and wife, Esther Reimer Richert, and their son; Velda and husband, A. Adolph Duerksen, and their three daughters; Jeanette and husband, Wesley D. Voth and their son and daughter; one brother, Jacob, and one sister. Mrs. Agnes Clark of Wichita; and other relatives and friends. His sister Mary, and brothers, Cornelius, Henry, John, Daniel, and David preceded him in death.

Funeral services were held in the Bergen Funeral Home at 1 o’clock p.m., in charge of Rev. P. P. Buller and at the Alexanderwohl church at 2 o’clock in charge of Rev. P. A. Wedel.
