Aganetha Fehr (nee Friesen)
1918 – 2015
With peace and happiness from a life well lived, we celebrate as Mom went into the waiting arms of Jesus. Mom spent many hours in prayer - for her children, her grandchildren, her great grandchildren and her great great grandchildren. Aganetha Fehr (nee Friesen) was born on March 11, 1918 and was married to the love of her life, Peter Fehr on September 20, 1938. Mom and Dad spent many years farming and then moved into town where Mom worked at a variety of jobs. Their first three children, Abe, Bill and Dora came in quick succession, followed ten years later by Viola. Their family complete, Dad's health took a turn for the worse and Mom spent many years taking care of Dad. When Dad passed away in 1998, Mom moved into Lion's Manor and enjoyed many years socializing and actively involved in life at Lion's. As the years progressed, Mom's health deteriorated and in April of 2015, just one month after turning 97, she was moved into Tabor Home. Mom was predeceased by her husband Peter, her son, Bill, and her son-in-law, Henry. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Abe and Tina of Winnipeg, daughter-in-law, Ann of Morden, daughter, Dora of Carman and daughter and son-in-law, Viola and John of Winkler. Also mourning her passing are her eight grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren and four great great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Kathryn Friesen of Winnipeg. Although Mom will be greatly missed, we are so thankful for the many wonderful memories we have. Times that we will cherish. Knowing that she is in heaven where there is no more pain and suffering. We have been blessed.
