Condolences

aunt dorothy and family I am Annie's. how very sorry i am for your loss of uncle joe. i remember him as a gentle man of few words. i know he was in a lot of pain in his life and is in heaven now with my dad and his siblings and other aunts.

Aunt Dorothy and family, I'm sorry for your loss of Uncle Joe. I remember when he came calling on Aunt Dorothy at Grandpa and Grandma's and how tall and soft spoken he was. I'm sure he's enjoying meeting all his ancestors he researched now in heaven.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and praying Uncle Joe is at peace and enjoying his reunion with Mom and the rest of his family who have passed.

Aunt Dorothy and the entire family,
My deepest condolences on the passing of Uncle Joe. I, too, remember him as quiet and a man of few words, all while the rest of Grandma and Grandpa Brenneke's house was bursting in noise and activity at Christmas time! I am sure you will cherish all of those memories.

My deepest sympathy to Aunt Dorothy and all of their children. Keep all of those great memories alive in your hearts. I wish I could be there in person to share my condolences but given the current social distancing recommendations, that isn’t going to happen. Hugs to all of you.

Jerry and I are so sorry for your loss, but feel he’s more at peace now.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the entire family. Just want to share a few memories. I started breeding cows in December of 1999 for NOBA/Genex Joe taught me his breeding route and how to come into the basement and check his answering machine for the call in service. Soon after he fell and broke his hip so I had to step up as an intern at 21 years old. I remember one time I kept playing the machine to figure out who this fellow was on the machine that needed a cow bred and just could not understand it. Joe was upstairs and not able to move around much from his broken hip and then he hollered down at me and said that’s David Gerber and I thought how in the world could you figure that out. I’m now 41 years old and still in the artificial breeding business but will always cherish those first memories with Joe that kick started my career and personal growth. Thanks Joe. R.I.P.

To Dorothy and Family So sorry for your loss.We enjoyed our time with Joe on our dairy farm..And will always remember that tall gentle square dance partner. Peace to all the family.

He was a wonderful man and friend and will be greatly missed.

I'm so sorry for your loss.Prayers

Dorothy and family,So very sorry for your loss. Joe will be missed!

Joe, your little sister, Cecilia. My deepest sympathy to all of Joe's relatives and friend. I am thinking of you and praying to, and for you now. Sorry, I cannot be at your funeral. I want all your friends to know how much I love you. I had polio at age 4 and still not walking again when I started grade school, so my BIG BROTJER JOE, carried me to school on piggy-back throughout first grade, back home for lunch and back to school for the afternoon, then back home at the end of the school day. Everyone who knew Joe will never forget him. Yes the tall GENTLE MAN. Joe, I love you so much and will see
you again some day. I miss you terribly. Your little sis, Cecilia

Dear Dorothy and all of your children, and my remaining brothers and sisters. Again, I just need to say how much you mean to me. Joe, I think I told you years ago that I think of you every day and how much you really mean to me.
I remember, even at the early age 0f four how you took care of me and treated me. You were always watching out for me.
I was the polio child and you made sure I was taken care of, even carrying me to first and second grade on piggy-back. Thank you BIG BROTHER, JOE, I miss you terribly and I know where you are so just "listen up" because I sure still need you.
You are now with the angels, mom and dad and the rest of our family who preceded you, and all your many friends. You are in a good place and I will see you again some day. But, in the meantime I sure miss you. Wish we could talk, maybe in my dreams. Love you so much, your little sister. Cecilia (Ceil). Hey, I really prefer Cecilia because I was named after St. Cecilia since I was born on her feast day. Check it our November 22. Love you all very much. Just me again. Take care of yourselves, OK?? And bye for now. Cecilia

Deepest Sympathies to the entire family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sorry I will not be able to attend the services. I plan to watch via livestream...once I figure out how to do that.
