John J. Unrau

1920 - 2002

John Unrau.jpgJohn J. Unrau was born near Rosenfeld June 13, 1920, to John F. and Katherine (Friesen) Unrau. In 1953 he married Elizabeth Kroeker and bought a farm near Lowe farm.  They raised 5 daughters and 2 sons there.  He was predeceased by a daughter, a grandson, a sister, 2 brothers and both parents. Through these difficult losses, he was sustained by his strong Christian faith and love for the Lord.

In 1990 John and Betty retired and moved to Winkler.  That year his health began to deteriorate.  In 2001 he moved to Salem Home, where he died in his sleep and went into the presence of Jesus. 

He is survived by his loving wife Betty, 2 sons, 4 daughters, and their spouses, 11 grandchildren and our special extended family, the Loewen's.

Funeral services were held on Wednesday May 1, 2002 at the Winkler E.M.M Church with Pastor Jerry Hildebrand and Pastor Dale Dueck officiating.  Interment followed at Rosefarm Cemetery.  If friends so desire donations may be may to the Food Grains Bank Box 767 Winnipeg Mb R3C 2L4 or Cancer Care Manitoba 675 McDermot Ave Room ON109 Winnipeg, Mb R3E 0V9.

The family thanks the staff at the Salem Home and the pastors, and many friends who visited him.
