6 ALOftt The organ plant was placed in honor of the 10th birthday of Nicole Bemhard Wednesday, March 8, by her family Chris, Judy, Tiffany and Bryan. The plant at the lectern was placed in memory of Minnie Schriewer by her family. The Geronimo Community was saddened to hear of Minnie Schriewer's death March 4. Minnie and her late husband Herbert had lived on their farm located near Navarro school. Minnie continued to live there until a few years ago when she first lived at Eden Heights and later at the Eden Home in New Braunfels. Final rites for Minnie were conducted at Friedens church on March 7 at 2 p.m. Minnie and Herbert will long be remembered for their special interest in historical values. In 1971, Friedens church observed its 75th anniversary. The first special service of the anniversary year was held Jan. 10 of that year. At the morning worship, Friedens church was named a historic Texas landmark by the Texas Survey Committee. The Texas Building Medallion with an interpretive plate was dedicated by the Guadalupe County survey committee with Mrs. Wilton Woods presiding. This marker was given in memory of Herbert Schriewer by Minnie and the children. Minnie is survived by son, H. Landis, and his wife Lucile Heilmann Schriewerof Columbia, Mo.; daughters, Carolyn S. Brucks and her husband George of New Braunfels and Shirley S. Janice of New Braunfels; 14 grandchildren; and 22 great- grandchildren; sister, Lydia Eisenhauer of Seguin; and a sister-in-law, Josephine Schulz of New Braunfels. Minnie was the daughter of the late Henry Schulz and Mina Ackermann Schulz. She was born June 21,1901 at Marion. She married Herbert Schriewer Feb. 12,1925 at Friedens church, where she remained a member until her death. The Rev. David O'Rourke conducted the final rites. Grace Triesch served as organist. Interment was in the Guadalupe Valley Memorial Park. Pallbearers for Minnie were Glen Brucks, David Brucks, Jeff Janke, Neil Janke, Tommy Foster and Allan Brucks. Honorary pallbears were Donald Brucks, Robert Brucks, Stephen Janke, Richard Evans and Les Valentine. Refreshments were served to family and friends in the reception center at Friedens church.
