It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Carl Benson, 48 at Bethesda Hospital, Steinbach, on Thursday, Nov. 23, 2006 following a lengthy yet courageous battle with COPD. Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 33 years Gabbie, two children Tracey and Doug as well as three sisters: Cathy, Janice and Jennifer (Richard). Also left to mourn are numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.

Carl was an extraordinary person who touched many lives both young and old. He always looked out for other people, making himself available even when he was ill. Carl was a straight shooter and although he could sometimes be blunt, he was often sought out for advice. He said it like it was and that's just how he said it. His humour was unusual but he enjoyed making people laugh. Carl enjoyed typical country weather. Music was a big part of Carl's life; he touched several generations with his musical influence. Family was of great importance and in Carl's words, "Ya don't screw with family!"

The family wishes to extend thanks to Dr.Werier, Dr. Bshouty, the lung transplant team at HSC, Dr. Reimer and the nurses on main floor.

Funeral services were held Wednesday, Nov. 29 at Ste Anne Roman Catholic Church.

In lieu of flowers, please sign your organ donor card and make your family aware.

Arrangements entrusted to Vita Funeral Homes, "St Pierre Chapel" St Pierre, MB, 433-7906.

Rest now and take a deep breath.

BERTHA REMPEL (nee Neufeld)

It is with great sorrow that we announce that Bertha Rempel passed away peacefully Friday, Nov. 24, 2006 at the Bethesda Hospital in Steinbach, MB.

Mom was born to Jacob and Anna Neufeld May 10, 1932 in the Tache Municipality. She married our father Bernard Rempel Oct. 26, 1952 in Steinbach.

Surviving her is her loving husband Bernard Rempel, her mother Mrs. Anna Neufeld and her children Bill (Linda) Rempel, Bob (Lucille) Rempel, Diane (Dave) Schroeder and Jack (Debra) Rempel, her grandchildren Christiana (Ryan) Graham, Jocelyn Rempel, Amy Rempel, Rhea (Chris) Logan, Jerome Schroeder, Joshua (Sara) Schroeder, Jennice (Andrae) Plett, Garreth (Giancarla) Rempel, Dana Rempel, Jessica Rempel and Cassandra Rempel, her great-grandchildren Caily, Zachary and Abigail Graham. She is also survived by her brothers and sisters Ida (Abe) Doerksen, Mary (Harry) Friesen, Pete (Helen) Neufeld, John (Martha) Neufeld, Agnes (Neil) Kehler, Ben (Jean) Neufeld and Hank (Shirley) Neufeld and their families and Bernard's family Jake (Anne) Rempel, Peter Rempel, Dora (Bill) Dyck, Helen (John) Banman and Martha (Ben) Peters and their families.

She was predeceased by her father Jacob Neufeld, her brother-in-law Eddy Thiessen, her sister-in-law Shirley Rempel and her parents-in-law Peter and Aganetha Rempel.

Mom was baptized on the confession of her faith in 1952. Mom's ultimate concern has been the salvation of her family, friends, neighbours, community and all nations. Her concern was demonstrated by her interest and support of missions. When we dropped by unexpectedly, we often found Mom meditating on her Bible and listening to her favourite spiritual radio programs. She enjoyed hosting missionaries and guest speakers from their church while they visited congregations in the Steinbach area. After serving faithfully in their church for numerous years, mom and dad obeyed their calling to serve as deacons from which they recently retired.

Mom loved to plan and organize family events and recently assisted in planning her mother's 100th birthday celebration. Before her marriage she worked at the St Amant Centre in Winnipeg, MB where she met our father. She later worked at the Eaton's Department Store in Winnipeg, as a health care aide at Rest Haven Nursing Home, and at the Association for Community Living. We will miss our mom's courageous spirit and her sense of humour, her wonderful cooking and baking, her sewing and mending and her competitiveness in the many board games which she challenged us at. Mom was a selfless individual and she always enjoyed fussing over her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Our family would like to extend sincere thanks to Dr. Krahn and the nursing staff at the Bethesda Hospital who provided excellent care to Mom and to us. We would also like to thank our many family members and friends who have stood behind us in prayer and cared for us during this time.

The chapel service took place Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2006. Funeral services took place Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2006 at the Steinbach Chortitzer Mennonite Church. Interment at Heritage Cemetery in Steinbach, MB.

"We love you mom, and you will always be near to us in our thoughts."

ANNA FEHR (nee Giesbrecht)
1919 - 2005

Monday, April 18, 2005, at the age of 85 years and after a brief illness, Mom changed her long awaited residence and peacefully left this earth for her new home to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her children and their families: John (Shirley) Fehr of Steinbach, Man., Ben (Darlene) Fehr of Winnipeg, Man., Peter (Sylvia) Fehr of Steinbach, Trina (Henry) Unrau of Steinbach, Dave (Debbie) Fehr of Edmonton, Alta., Jake (Carmelle) Fehr of Millet, Alta., Anne (Cliff) Schalla of Steinbach, Nick (Lorrie) Fehr of Wetaskiwin, Alta., Susie Fehr of Steinbach, Henry (Lois) Fehr of Steinbach, Mary (Gilbert) Meilleur of Steinbach, Betty (Darrin) Miller of Landmark, Man.; 31 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.

Dec. 20, 1919 Mom was born to Bernhard and Katherine Giesbrecht. She married Dad, Abram N. Fehr, Jan. 16, 1938. Mom has always worked incredibly hard, whether it was farming, gardening, housework, raising a large family, or helping Dad build their many different homes. She also took great pride in her children's achievements. Mom was also known for her generosity and hospitality. Her humble lifestyle demonstrated her strong faith in God. She overcame many obstacles in her life, including many surgeries. She showed us what a servant's heart is like, unselfishly and lovingly always putting others before herself. She always said God would not give her more than she could manage. Mom was a woman of prayer and her devotional time with God every morning and night was a priority. Mom and Dad also cared for many foster children. Mom was also a wonderful grandmother to a lot of foster grandchildren.

Mom was predeceased by her husband in 1992, one son Abe and daughter-in-law Verna in 1996, one daughter, one son and one great-grandchild in infancy.

Viewing will be held at Birchwood Funeral Chapel, Thursday, April 21 at 7 p.m., with a devotional at 8 p.m. The funeral service will be held Friday, April 22, 2 p.m., at Springs Church, 179 Chapel Dr.; Steinbach. Interment at Heritage Cemetery.

Our dear husband, father and pépère passed away peacefully, April 17, 2005, at the age of 80. Samuel was born at St-Pierre-Sud, Man., Dec. 9, 1924, the eldest son of a family of 10.

Pépère leaves to mourn his passing, his beloved wife Irène (Turenne); his only daughter Murielle, and husband André; his three grandchildren, Yvan, Rossel and Serge, who will truly miss their beloved Pépère.

Also mourning his passing are his sister Aline Lahaie of St-Pierre-Jolys, Man.; brothers, Jean of Montréal, Fernard (Bernadette), Henri, Luc and Raymond of St-Pierre-Jolys, Réal (Éva) and Alfred (Suzanne) of St-Boniface, Man. He also leaves his sisters and brothers-in-law, Simone Maynard, Émilien Préfontaine, Majella Turenne, Robert (Alice) Turenne, and Jeannine (Joe) Zabloski.

He was predeceased by his parents, Antoine and Léona; and his brother Coco (Claude); his sisters and brothers-in-law, Marguerite Bérard, Cécile Préfontaine, Lucie Catellier, Gérard Turenne, Auguste Turenne, Joe Maynard, André Turenne, Hermile Catellier, and John Lahaie.

Pépère lived his entire life in St-Pierre-Jolys. He worked as a mechanic in a garage known as Bérard Bros., which he co-owned with his brother Luc. He started a Ski-Doo dealership, was owner of Shell Bulk Oil, and to top it off becoming a farmer. His great love of working the land was finally realized. He also worked the ancestral land with his brothers, Fernand, Coco, Luc, Henri and Raymond. Pépère had not yet retired from farming, as his famous saying goes "If I go visit the farm, I'm going to work anyways".

Pépère was a man of few words, but asked for his opinion, what Pépère said was honoured and respected. He was a quiet, shy man, but had a mischievous side, and we were all caught at one time or another in one of his pranks.

Prayers will take place at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 21, at Desjardins Funeral Chapel, 357 Des Meurons Street. Funeral services will be held Friday, April 22, 2005 at the St. Malo Roman Catholic Church at 7:30 p.m.

The family would like to thank the nursing staff at the DeSalaberry Health Centre for the excellent care given to Samuel. Thank you to Dr. Roy Strank for your excellent care and compassion.

Comme tu nous disais toujours, merci pour la visite. Bon voyage Pépère, et nous irons te visiter un jour.
