Long-Time Mennonite Brethren Pastor Dies

Denver, Colo. — Rev. Gerhardt Warkentin, who served as pastor of a number of Mennonite Brethren churches and completed more than 50 years in the active ministry, died here Feb. 27.

A native of South Russia, he experienced the hardships of the communist revolution in that country, which claimed the lives of his first wife and little daughter. He came to America in 1921 and immediately became active in Christian work.

From 1946 to 1948 he served in South America under the MCC. His last pastorate was at Jose, Colo. Survivors include his third wife, Bessie; three children; two sisters in South America, one in Russia, and one in British Columbia.
