Margaret Krahn (nee Suderman)

1924 - 2018 

On Tuesday, February 20, 2018, Margaret Krahn of Winkler, MB aged 93, passed away at Salem Home. 

Born April 11, 1924 to Margaret and David Suderman, she was the 2nd of seven children. She lived in Greenfarm and attended the local Greenfarm School where she developed her early love of nature and sports. During these years, Margaret met Isaac C Krahn and they married in 1945. They lived on the Krahn family farm for the first years of their marriage, then moved to Winkler when the children started school. They were blessed with six children; five girls and then finally a boy. Over the years, Margaret worked on the family farm, the Winkler Cannery, cooked at the Winkler Bible School and then spent many enjoyable years working in the dry goods section of the Winkler Co-op Store.  She was a lifelong member of the Winkler Bergthaler Church.

Margaret was kept very busy caring for her six children, with constant cooking, gardening, canning vegetables, laundry and polishing shoes for Sunday. She often stayed up late into the night to finish sewing new outfits for her children. Margaret loved reading, travel, sports, puzzles and games, especially Bingo! She had many years when she was retired and widowed. She used that time to visit with family and friends, volunteer at the MCC store and senior centre, read, watch sports and play games with friends. 

Margaret was predeceased by her husband, Isaac in 1991 and her grandchildren, Jordan and Brittany in 2005.  She is survived by her six children: Rita (John Wiebe), Edith (Steve Dyck), Gloria Krahn, Vicki (Ray Doell), Jocelyn Faire (Harold Booy) and Curtis (Debbie), 17 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren. She enjoyed her time with all of them. She is also survived by all six of her siblings, who were also among her best friends throughout her life: Ella (Isaac Hildebrand), Abe (Tina), John (Joan), Peter (Meg), David (Meryth), Doreen (Alvin Hildebrand) and many nieces and nephews. 

Memorial service at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the Emmanuel Mennonite Church, in Winkler with private interment prior at the Winkler Cemetery. 

The family would like to thank the staff of Salem Home for treating Mom with love and care while she was there. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salem Foundation Inc.
