Peters, Rev. Daniel D.

Rev. Daniel D. Peters

1927 - 2003

Daniel Peters was born June 29, 1927 in Blumenort, Manitoba to Daniel and Maria (nee Sawatzky) Peters.  He attended the village school and later graduated from the MCI. He married Elma Tiessen, and they taught for four years in Southern Manitoba.  They went to Cuauhtemoc, Mexico where Dad was a teacher and later a Pastor for thirty years.  Upon their return to Manitoba in 1985, Dad pastored a small country church near Elm Creek and retired in 1985.  Despite his gradual loss of speech, he remained in constant fellowship with God and his family.

Dad passed away peacefully Sunday morning, Feb 23rd at the Salem Home, Winkler.  He leaves to mourn his loving wife, Elma, four daughters: Ellie and Gary Loewen of Winkler, and their children: Charlotte, Rosanna, and Dan; Dorothy of Winnipeg; Louise and Barry Braun of Winkler; Irene and Hans Friesen of Mexico and seven grandchildren.

Our dad sought to live in a manner that honored his Creator and Redeemer. From the Master Himself, he repeatedly found grace and courage to persevere until he completed his pilgrimage on this earth.  Dad continues to be dearly loved and will be missed by his family and many friends.

Funeral service was held on Wednesday, February 26, 2003 at 11:00 AM at the Winkler Bergthaler Mennonite Church with Pastor Marvin Koop officiating.  Interment followed at the Blumenort Cemetery.
