Loewen_JuliussqOn Wednesday April 4, 2012 at Salem Home, Julius Loewen aged 82 years of Winkler, MB formerly of Reinfeld, Hochfeld and Mexico received the call from his Savior to come home. 

Julius was born in the village of Hamburg, Chihuahua, Mexico to Julius and Maria (nee Ens) Loewen on October 13, 1929. He was baptized upon confession of his faith on June 6, 1949 by Bishop Isaac Dick in the Old Colony Mennonite Church. On July 16, 1950 he was united in marriage to Katharina Fehr. They were blessed with eight sons and two daughters (a number who are deaf). 

He leaves to mourn his passing, six sons, two daughters, two sons-in-law, one daughter-in-law, seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. 

He was predeceased by his loving wife, Katharina, one son in infancy, a 26 year-old son in an accident, his parents, two brothers and four sisters. 

Funeral service was held on Saturday April 7, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at Winkler Reinland Mennonite Church with interment at the church Cemetery. 

The family wishes to express our heartfelt thank you to Dr Brett, Rev. David Friesen and all the wonderful staff on Evergreen. The family also wishes to thank all the special people who are caring for and making a home for Klaas, David, Frank and Ben. Dad and Mom cared deeply for their children and it grieved them when they were no longer able to care for them themselves. They were very grateful to the special “families” who made a home for them. So again, thank you may our God bless you for your kindness. We would also like to thank Rev. Jake Wiebe, the church ushers and caretakers of the Reinland Mennonite Church, Winkler for caring and serving our family.
