On April 23, 2004 Frieda Helene Kletke, 67 years, of Morden MB went to her eternal rest. She is survived by her husband Adolf, one son Chris of Winnipeg, one daughter Marcia Keszi and husband Tibor also of Winnipeg.

Frieda was born April 1, 1937 at Antler SK to Daniel and Alwine Wonneck. Her family later moved to Steinbach where she attended school.  After her school years she was eager to start her career. Her first job was working at Eaton’s followed by the Royal Bank in Winnipeg.

On November 5, 1965 she married Adolf Kletke. Together they farmed at Rosenfeld MB. Working the land and raising a family with her husband kept Frieda very busy. She will be remembered for her dedication to her family and many friends.

Frieda was always involved in the Lutheran Church and volunteered her time to other organizations. The Canadian Foodgrains Bank was one organization that was close to her heart. In 1993 Adolf and Frieda traveled to Africa to observe the distribution of food aid to refugees. Frieda always cherished this experience and always tried to help the less fortunate.

In September of 2000 Adolf and Frieda retired to Morden MB. She enjoyed retirement and made many new friends in the community. In April of 2003 Frieda was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease). Her faith in God and her courage helped the family cope with this new challenge.

The family wishes to thank the staff at the Boundary Trails Health Centre.

The Funeral Service was held on Tuesday April 27, 2004, at the Trinity Lutheran Church, Winkler, at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Alex Klages officiating. Internment will follow at the Rosenfeld Cemetery.
