Katharine Fehr (nee Fehr)

1942 - 2011 

FehrKatharineEarly on July 23, 2011 at the age of 68 years, 6 months, and 29 days, our beoved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend was released of her earthly duties and welcomed into her heavenly home. 

Katharine was born December 25, 1942 in Winkler, Manitoba and she married Diedrich Fehr September 10, 1961 at the age of 18 years. They spent nearly 50 years together and had many plans for their future. Katharine made a great impact on the lives of all she knew, especially her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. 

A servant of God and a servant to others, she was always willing to lend a helping hand. She enjoyed traveling, gardening, taking care of the neighbour children and loved spending quality time with family. There are many words we can use to describe her: loving, selfless, hardworking, gentle, just to name a few. The memories of Katharine Fehr will be cherished forever; until we meet again. 

She is survived by her loving husband, Diedrich Fehr and 3 children, Katherine (Jacob) Wolfe, Susie Toews, and Richard (Susan) Fehr, one daughter-in-law, Joanne Fehr-Fast, 13 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, 8 brothers and 6 sisters. 

She was predeceased by her parents, Gerhard (1981) and Maria Fehr (2011) and son, Bernhard Fehr (1995). 

Funeral service was held on Wednesday July 27, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at Winkler Sommerfeld Mennonite Church and interment followed at Westridge Memorial Gardens. 

If friends so desire, donations may be made in Katharine’s memory to the Gideon Memorial Bible Plan.
