Jimmie DeWayne Senff

December 31, 1931 - October 06, 2018

Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Let us remember with thanksgiving what God has done for us through his servant, Jimmie DeWayne Senff.
Jimmie DeWayne Senff was born on the thirty-first of December in the Year of Our Lord 1931 to Delbert and Pearl (née Shaneyfelt) Senff in Mishawaka, Indiana. He was born again as a child of God in the waters of Holy Baptism on the twenty-first of September, 2011, at Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church, Terre Haute, Indiana, at the hand of the Rev. Philip G. Meyer. He was catechized in the Christian faith, as taught by the Evangelical Lutheran Church, and confirmed on the twenty-first of December, 1958, at Christ Lutheran Church, Woodburn, Indiana, at the hand of the Rev. Howard Georg.
He was united in holy marriage to Dorothy Jean Kieninger on the thirty-first of May, 1958, at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Bremen, Indiana, at the hand of the Rev. Harold Schmidt. God blessed them with 59 years of married life together. God blessed their marriage with one daughter and two sons, Jill Talley, Jeffery Senff and Michael Senff; in addition to seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. He is survived by his children; grandchildren; and his brother, Jay Senff. Jimmie DeWayne was preceded in death by his parents; his wife; and his sister, Joan Senff Ross.
On the sixth of October, 2018, Jimmie DeWayne fell asleep in Christ, with whom he waits for the resurrection of all flesh. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord. We give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ, our Lord, for our brother in Christ, Jimmie DeWayne Senff.
