Historical Note:

Mennonite Weekly Review obituary:

Inman, Kan.—Rev. Frank J. Enns, who served as a missionary to Zaire, Africa for 36 years, died here Sunday, July 20, at the age of 80.

Funeral services were conducted Wednesday afternoon at the Bethel Mennonite Church, of which he was a member. Rev. Paul Isaak, the pastor, officiated. Rev. Arthur Janz represented the Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission at the service and gave a tribute to Rev. Enns.

A native of this community, Rev. Enns married Agnes Neufeld on June 11, 1926, and the couple left that same year for mission service in what was then the Belgian Congo. They arrived at the Nyanga station in January 1927.

The couple served in the Congo under the Congo Inland Mission, now the Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission, until 1960, when they retired. For many years Rev. Enns was field chairman of the mission.

Following the death of his first wife in 1965, Rev. Enns accepted a call to return to Zaire and served three more years. On Dec. 30, 1974, he married Aganetha K. Friesen, a retired missionary nurse who had also served in Zaire.

Survivors include the widow, of Inman; a son, John F. of Kansas City, Mo.; two daughters, Katharine of Inman and Mrs. Emerson Neufeldt of Buhler; and a brother, Abe F. of Meade.
