frenner

Oct. 26, 1917 – Jan. 27, 2013

She was born Theresia Kaufmann on Oct. 26, 1917, in Brixen, a small village in Austria between Innsbruck and Salzburg, the 13th of 14 children.

She married Franz Frenner in 1943 and gave birth to their only child, Brigitte, in 1945. After her husband died, she moved in with her daughter in Woodland in 1962 to work for Mrs. Neal Dougherty. She soon became a Jehovah’s Witness and through her zealous activity, she helped many to learn Bible truth and embrace the ministry as she had. Many in Woodland remember her 30 years of bicycling everywhere, putting in 50 hours per month in the ministry.

In 1991, she moved to Davis to be closer to her daughter.

On Dec. 20, 2012, she suffered a major stroke that left her paralyzed on the right side and unable to speak. After a monthlong battle with her failing body, she died in her sleep at home on Jan. 27, 2013.

She is survived by her daughter, Brigitte Murphy, son-in-law, Mike, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013, at the Davis Kingdom hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 36681 Russell Blvd. in Davis. For more information, please call Mike Murphy at 530-758-5408.
