2,000 Pay Tribute to the

Late Rev. F. J. Lehmann

REV. F. J. LEHMANN'S funeral at Ang-
aston on Sunday was the largest ever
seen here, about 2,000 people attending.
There were about 400 cars in the cortege,
the head of which was at the cemetery (2
miles away) before the last cars left Zion
Lutheran Church, where the funeral serv-
ice was held. Rev. Lehmann, 55, collapsed
and died on Friday morning. He had had
heart trouble for some time, and was not
feeling well when he arose. In addition to
the funeral, about 180 beautiful floral tri-
butes bore testimony to the high esteem
and affection in which he was held here and
in surrounding areas. Rev. R. B. Reuther,
who prepared the biography, referred to
him as "a faithful and devoted husband, a
kind and thoughtful father, a
successful and sincere pastor, a
good and highly esteemed citi-
zen, and our intimate friend."
Fifth son of the late Mr and
Mrs C. F. W. Lehmann, he was
born at Vine Vale on January
23, 1890, being christened and
confirmed by the late Rev. G.
A. Heidenreich. He entered
Immanuel College, Point Pass on
Jan. 23, 1900, and graduated at
St. Paul Luther Seminary, Min-
neapolis, USA, on Jan. 23, 1911.
After 3 months as home mission-
er in Western Canada, he re-
turned to SA via Europe, and
was ordained and inducted by
Rev. J. H. S. Heidenreich on
Oct. 22, 1911, at Eden Valley.
His parish then included San-
dieton and Murrayville (Vic.),
and he would often go by motor
cycle to Murray Bridge in order
to catch the train for Murray-
ville. The parish now also em-
braces Eden Valley, Keyneton,
Penrice, Dimchurch and St.
He was a former vice-pres. of
synod's SA district, and served
on most of its boards and com-
mittees. He was on the Finke
Mission Board—a former secre-
tary—and the Immanuel Col-
lege Board. He was chairman
of the District Hospital Board,
and had been on the Band com-
mittee. He was a special con-
stable under ARP, and a dist-
rict billeting officer. He was a
fluent, forceful speaker with an
inimitable touch of humour. His
recreation was bowls.
In 1912 he married Miss Ella
E. Hasting, who died on July
7, 1926; two of their five child-
ren having predeceased her. On
Aug. 18, 1927, he married Miss
Erna Regina Linke, and they
had three children. Bearers at
the home and cemetery on Sun-
day were Elders E. H. Doecke
(St. Kitts), R. Heintze (Dim-
church), G. Roesler (Penrice),
Alb. Kroehn and E. Roesler
(Eden Valley) and J. Graetz
(Keyneton). Bearers at the
church were Revds. K. Renner,
A. Simpfendorfer, G. Obst, H.
Stiller, C. Weckert and B. Bar-
Rev. J. Riedel (SA vice-pres)
conducted the family devotion
at the home. Rev. H. F. W.
Roehrs had charge of service at
the church, and Rev. J. Doehler
(SA pres.) gave the funeral ad-
dress. Rev. R. B. Reuther gave
the biography and afterwards
conducted the service at the
graveside. Rev. H. Heidenreich
