Elmer Albert & Dorothy Christine (Wurm) Dehnhard

Dorothy Christine Wurm, daughter of Philip John and Elizabeth (Missig) Wurm, was born 6 Nov 1888 and died 6 Dec. 1959.  She married Elmer Albert Dehnhard.  Elmer was born 28 Jan 1885 to Adam and Anna (Dick) Dehnhard and died 14 Dec 1950 at Elyria, Ohio.  Elmer and Dorothy divorced sometime between 1924 and 1938.

Obituary of Dorothy C. (Wurm) Dehnhard - Sandusky Register, Sandusky, Ohio, 7 Dec 1959, page 10
"Mrs. Dorothy C. Dehnhard, 71, a resident of 614 E. Washington St., died Sunday morning in the Norwood Chronic Hospital, Fitchville, after a lengthy illness.

Mrs. Dehnhard was a member of SS. Peter and Paul Church.

Surviving are two daughters, Miss Mary Dehnhard and Mrs. Robert Gray, both Sandusky; three grandchildren; two brothers, Arnold B. Wurnelle, Kansas City, Mo. and Carl P. Wurnelle, Sandusky; two sisters, Mrs. Bessie Ranker, Elyria and Mrs. Theresa Enis, Phoenix, Ariz. and several nieces and nephews.

Friends may call after 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Charles J. Andres Sons' Funeral Home, where the Rev. William Sullivan will recite the Rosary at 8 p.m. Tuesday.  Funeral services are to be held at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday in the funeral home and 9 a.m. in SS. Peter and Paul Church, Father Sullivan officiating.  Burial is to be in St. Joseph's Cemetery.

Expressions of sympathy, if desired, may be made to a favorite charity."

Elmer Albert and Dorothy Christine (Wurm) Dehnhard had one child:
1 - Mary E. Dehnhard was born 11 Sept 1905 at Sandusky, Ohio and died 19 July 1975 in Huron County, Ohio.  Her birth record at the Erie County Probate Court lists her name as Lamont Dehnhard.  She never married.

(Note - Dorothy's obituary lists a second surviving daughter, Mrs. Robert Gray, however I have been unable to verify this daughter's identity.  Erie County birth records do not include any other child other than Mary/Lamont born to Elmer and Dorothy.  Mary is also the only child enumerated with Dorothy in the 1910 and 1920 censuses.)
