Loewen, Katharina.jpgOn Sunday June 15, 2008 at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Katharina Loewen aged 78 years of Winkler, MB formerly of Reinfeld and Hochfeld in Mexico received the call from her Saviour to come home.

Katharina was born in the village of Reinfeld, Chihuaua, Mexico to Klaas and Maria (nee Peters) Fehr on October 19, 1929.  She was baptized upon confession of her faith on May 30, 1950 by Bishop Isaac Dick in the Old Colony Mennonite Church.  On July 16, 1950 she was united in marriage to Julius Loewen.  They were blessed with 8 sons and 2 daughters (a number who are deaf).

She leaves to mourn her passing her loving husband of 57 years and 11 months, Julius of Winkler; 2 daughters; 6 sons; 1 daughter-in-law; 2 sons-in-law; 7 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

She was predeceased by 1 son in infancy; a 26 year old son in an accident; her parents and all her siblings.

Funeral service was held on Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 2:00 pm at Reinland Mennonite Church with Bishop William Friesen officiating.  Interment followed at the Church Cemetery in Schanzenfeld.

The family wishes to express our heartfelt thank you to the special people who are caring and making a home for Klaas, David, Frank and Ben.  Mom cared deeply for her children and it grieved her when she was no longer able to care for them herself.  She was grateful to the special “families” who made a home for them.  So again, thank you and may God bless you for your kindness.
