Klassen Agatha.jpgOn Monday November 24, 2008 at Salem Home, Agatha Klassen aged 94 years of Winkler, MB went to her eternal rest. 

She leaves to mourn her passing, 3 daughters, Hilda and Bill Fayle of Winnipeg, Helen Peters of Winkler, Martha Friesen of Winkler; 1 son, Bert and Helen Klassen of Roland; 9 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her husband, Abram D. Klassen in 1999, 1 son, John in 2007, 2 daughters, Irene in 1962 and Kay in 2006 and 3 sons-in-law, Henry Peters (2002), Alvin Friesen (2002), Dave Suderman (2006) and grandson, Wayne Suderman (2006). 

Grandma Klassen was a wonderful grandmother who loved all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren tremendously.  She always made it a point to have cookies, roll kuchen or some kind of baking available whenever we visited and never let us go home without a little bit of spending money.  She made mouthwatering sour bread and that tradition has been kept alive by grandchildren Brenda Peters-Watral and, recently, Grant Suderman who, together, baked 10 loaves for the funeral lunch. 

Funeral service was held on Monday December 1, 2008 at 1:00 pm at Wiebe Funeral Chapel in Morden.  Interment followed at Winkler Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Agatha Klassen’s memory to the Salem Foundation Inc. 165 15th St. Winkler, MB R6W 1T8. 

Wiebe Funeral Home, Winkler in care of arrangements.
