LENA KEHLER (nee Enns)

Peacefully, May 4, 2006, with her family by her side, Lena Kehler passed away to be with her Lord and Savior. Lena is survived by six children, 17 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren: Nancy and Jerry Friesen of Rosenort, Man. and their children; Orville and Jenni Kehler of Rosenort, and their children; Angela and Peter Siemens of Rosenort, and their children; Rebecca and Don Reimer of Mitchell, Man. and son Dustin; Christine and Jim Warkentin of Yorkton, Sask., and their children; Paul and Lisa Kehler of Steinbach, Man., and their children. She also leaves one sister, Anne Krueger of Steinbach, and one brother, Paul Enns of Tampa, Florida. She was predeceased by one daughter, Mary Jane, in infancy; one grandson, Adam Kehler, in infancy; and one brother, Erwin Enns.

Lena was born in South Russia on May 1, 1924, and immigrated to Canada with her parents, Isaac and Helena Enns, and younger sister Annie. They settled in Morris, Man., where Mom spent her youth. She enjoyed working side by side with her father, who owned the Morris Jewellery Store. Spending time boating on the Morris River, playing piano for her church, or just enjoying spending time with friends and her siblings, Annie, Erwin, and Paul, kept Mom very happy. Sadly, in 1947 her father died of tuberculosis, and Lena took this very hard.

Mom met Dad in 1948 at a social function and they got married Oct. 16, 1949 in Morris. They spent their married years between Altona, Rosenort, and Steinbach, raising their six children. Mom loved to knit sweaters and touques for her 17 grandchildren. Many beautiful embroidered pictures and tablecloths were made for her girls. In early April, Mom's health took a turn for the worse, as she suffered a number of strokes. On May 4, at Bethesda Hospital, Mom was relieved of her earthly suffering, and went home to be with her Lord and Savior.

The family would like to thank the nursing staff on the first floor and the rehabilitation department at the Bethesda Hospital for their gentle care of Mom. We would also like to thank the home-care staff at Woodhaven, which had been a great blessing to Mom and Dad. We would also like to express thanks for the pastoral visits, the extended help we have received in planning two funerals, and for all of the prayers, cards, food, and visits during this time of loss.

The funeral service will be officiated by Reverend John Dyck and Ben Friesen. Viewing will be held at the EMC, Main Street, in Steinbach at 7 p.m., Thursday, May 11. Funeral services will be held at the EMC at 2 p.m., Friday, May 12. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mennonite Central Committee.

Arrangements by Birchwood Funeral Chapel, 150 Penfeld Dr.; Steinbach, Man.

We will always remember our mom and Baba at family gatherings, outings and picnics in the Marchand area. She was a proud supporter of the children's activities and always attended the baseball and hockey games.

As a member of the Friendensfeld Community Centre she enjoyed working many weekends. She was a dedicated member of and attended Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Sarto, Man. as long as her health permitted.

The family acknowledges and appreciates the staff at Bethesda Place for the care, respect and kindness shown to our mother.

Prayers were said Wednesday, May 10 at Steinbach Funeral Home. The funeral service was held May 11, 11 a.m., at Steinbach Funeral Home, with interment following at Heritage Cemetery, Steinbach.

As per her wishes, cremation has taken place and a memorial service was held Tuesday, May 23, 2 p.m., at Birchwood Funeral Chapel, 150 Penfeld Drive, Steinbach, Man., with Pastor Al Maier officiating. Private burial.

LYDIA WIENS (nee Nickel)

Peacefully, with her family by her side, Lydia Wiens, age 81, went home to be with her Lord on May 18, 2006 at the Menno Home for the Aged in Grunthal, Man.

She was predeceased by her husband of 47 years, Peter A. Wiens, in 1993. She was also predeceased by brothers, Jacob (in infancy), John and Abe; and sisters, Sarah Rogers and Margaret Unrau.

She leaves to cherish her memory, six children: Bill (Pauline) Wiens, Louise Wiens, George (Chris) Wiens, all of Steinbach, Man., Ken (Verna) Wiens of Grunthal, Mary Wiens of Winnipeg, Man., and James Wiens of Steinbach; nine grandchildren: Karen (Corey) Wiebe, Cynthia and Laurel Wiens, Jonathan (Lily), Eric and Justin Wiens, Kas (Lorraine), Kevin and Kurtis Wiens; three great-grandchildren: Shaylene, Brycen and Karlana Wiebe.

Mom was born April 24, 1925 in Herbert, Sask., later moving to the McAuley/Willen, Man. area, where she spent most of her childhood. She left home at age 14 to work as a maid in the McAuley area. After a brief time studying nursing in Winnipeg, Man., she returned home. She was baptized upon her confession of faith on May 26, 1945 in Oak Lake, Man., and married Dad in Willen on Aug. 9, 1945. They farmed in the McAuley area for seven years before moving to the Steinbach area in 1953, where they continued farming until retirement in 1974. In 1985 they bought a home in Steinbach, where Mom continued to live after Dad's passing in 1993. Due to failing health, she moved to the Menno Home in 2000, where she remained until her passing.

Mom will be remembered for her love of the outdoors, her beautiful flower gardens and knowledge of birds. She was an amazing baker, a gifted quilter and an avid reader. Her gentle nature, listening ear and caring heart came from her relationship with Jesus.

She has now been set free from all earthly struggles to be with Dad in the presence of the Lord.

The funeral service was held Tuesday, May 23 at Steinbach Mennonite Church, with Rev. Gary Martens officiating. Interment followed at Heritage Cemetery in Steinbach. Pallbearers for the service were her six grandsons: Jonathan, Eric, Justin, Kas, Kevin and Kurtis Wiens.

The family wishes to extend sincere appreciation to the staff at the Menno Home for the loving care given to Mom and support shown to her family.
