Katharina (Tina) Unger

“I was born June 1, 1923 on a farm near New Bothwell to Elizabeth and Cornelius Giesbrecht. It was here that I received some of my schooling. Later we moved to a farm near Steinbach. It was here that I met my “Special Friend” Daniel Unger. I realized I needed more in my life and with God’s Grace and Mercy he reached down and touched me. In faith I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and in His terms I became a Child of God. I was baptized upon confession of faith in the Seine River east of Steinbach.”

Mom and Dad were married November 26, 1944 and began their lifetime farming journey in the Austin area. They lived there till the fall of 2008 and celebrated 64 years of marriage.

Over the years Mom did a lot of volunteering in the community and in her local church. She enjoyed being a Sunday school teacher as well as treasurer. She loved doing “object lessons”. She would have the most creative ideas, even if it meant taking an empty Kleenex box and putting a brick into it to resemble a building structure. She loved volunteering at the MCC centre as a clerk. During the days of the Austin Threshermen’s Reunion, she would volunteer 4 days to sit as a house guest at some of the houses. She loved to visit with all sorts of people. Mom was also involved with the Red Cross for many years.

Mom kept the home fires burning. She was a “hard worker”. She would help stook bales, prepare meals, have a garden and do whatever it took to maintain the household. She had a “Heart of Gold”. She put her friends and family first before herself.

Mom was predeceased by her parents Elizabeth and Cornelius Giesbrecht; two sisters Anna and Elizabeth; one sister in law Elizabeth Friesen and two brothers in law Cornelius Unger and Ben Unger.

Tina is survived by her loving husband Dan; two sisters in law Mary Roos and Winnie Dyck; two brothers in law Dave Unger and Victor Unger; two children George (Shirley) Unger and Don (Vera) Voodre; granddaughters Gwendolyn (Bruce) Reimer and Shawna (Chad) Neufeld; and three beautiful great grandchildren Vanessa, Gregory and Regan Reimer. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews and a very special couple Dave and Madelaine Wall of Deloraine. Being together as a family brought Mom the greatest joy. She looked forward to Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings.

In closing Mom had written a letter to Dad: “Dear Dan, If I should leave you first, you should know that the Good Lord took me home to be with Him. Don’t be angry at God, for He Knew what was best for me and you. The same goes for my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, daughter in law, son in law and grandsons in law.”

Some of the obituary was written by Mom herself.

Funeral Service was held on Thursday, July 23, 2009 at 2:00 pm at the Austin Evangelical Fellowship Church in Austin, Manitoba with Pastor Colin Bell and Pastor Gordon Brown officiating. Pallbearers were Fred Amann, Bruce Reimer, Tony Hiebert, Chad Neufeld, Brad Dreidger and Willie Reimer. Interment took place in the Austin Sommerfeld Cemetery.

Emil John Petrowski

On July 21, 2009 Emil John Petrowski passed away at his residence at Glenella, Manitoba as the result of a tragic farming accident.

Our Dad was born on August 20, 1949 to Mike and Anna Petrowski at Ste Rose Hospital. He started his grade one in the Old Glenella School which is now the Senior Centre while living with his grandparents. When Leonard began school they went to the Goodland School but soon went back to Glenella and then to Lucania and finally back to Glenella once more. Until he went to school he spoke only Ukrainian. At an early age he tasted the love of farming and the farm became his life. He enjoyed all that pertained to the farm whether it was clearing land, seeing the new crop grow and the hay rolled up for winter feed or the new crop of calves. In his early years he worked at odd jobs, hauling kids to school, working at manufacturing rafters, painting and shingling, brushing and until the last short while dug graves – whatever brought in extra cash to get himself established as well as working the home farm with his parents.

On November 9, 1974 Dad married our Mom Amanda Hiller and together set out on their own farm just 1 ½ miles from the home where he had grown up. The loss of the sight of one eye due to a farming mishap shortly after caused him a great deal of grief and frustration throughout the rest of his life. In spite of his hardship he continued on with the life he loved. Dad’s main interest was farming and if you ever talked to him you’d know he cold talk farming for hours. In earlier years he enjoyed a good rip on his skidoo or motorbike, Dodge Charger and later the Quad. He enjoyed socializing with anyone who took the time to stop. His love of hunting and trapping has been passed down to his children and was affectionately called “the chief” by his fellow hunters.

We remember how he enjoyed going for a drive to check the crops or just check out what was going on in the neighbourhood and would usually invite whoever was at home to go along. It was something all the family enjoyed even if all 7 of us were piled in the cab of the half-ton.

Picking morels and sucker fishing in the early spring were things he looked forward to.

Dad had a heart of gold when it came to helping anyone who needed a hand – sometimes to the point of leaving something undone for his own family. He would have done anything for anyone.

He was predeceased by an infant sister Rosemarie in 1952; father Michael in 1989; mother Anna in 1993 and one Aunt Katie Terrick.

He leaves to mourn his sudden death his wife Amanda and their 5 children Orest (Amber) and soon to be born 7th grandchild; Jocelyn (Ian) Cottingham and their children Levi, Sienna and Deklan; Chantelle (Dean) Zamonsky and daughter Anna; Dustin and fiancé Ciji and children Tyla and Carson; and daughter Tiffany; brother Leonard and his son James; one uncle and aunt Nick and Erma Petrowski; along with several cousins, many friends and neighbors.

A private family viewing took place on Sunday, July 26, 2009 at 7 pm at Clarke's Funeral Chapel in Gladstone. Funeral Service was held on Monday, July 27, 2009 at 11:00 am at the Glenella Community Hall with Father Emil Kardasenic officiating.
