Joseph Mentz (1840-1922)

Obituary

Joseph Mentz was born in Germany, Jan. 1, 1840, and departed this life, at Franklin, July 1, 1922, aged 82 years 6 months. When 3 years of age, he came to this country and settled at Cincinnati. Orphaned as a tender age, he was adopted by foster-parents and reared to manhood. On Feb. 11, 1864, he was united in marriage to Sarah Jane Booker and for more than 50 years trod life’s pathway together. On March 25, 1920, his companion was suddenly called home, which was a great shock to him, in his great affliction with which he was burdened. He came with his family to Springboro, in 1874, where he lived an industrious and upright life. For many years he was the sexton of the church and many were the times he tolled its be3ll for others passed on long ago and which today tolls his parting knell. For the past year his sufferings were intense but he bore them with great patience and without a murmur, even in his bed at night humming hymns he so dearly loved. He has been tenderly cared for by a loving and dutiful daughter and husband, who have left nothing undone for this comfort. We cannot wish him back with his great suffering. He is at rest. God’s will be done.
Two daughters, Mrs. Adam Roesch, Mrs. Samuel Master; two sons, Jesse and Walter; and seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, survive him.
