Mathilda (Tillie) Janzen (nee Letkeman)

1927 – 2018 

Tillie Janzen was born October 24, 1927 to Peter and Aganetha (nee Giesbrecht) Letkeman of the Wakeham district, south of Morden. Mom was one of a family of twelve. She attended Wakeham school and was baptized upon the confession of her faith in her younger years at the Rudnerweide Church in Rhineland. She married Abe Janzen May 29, 1950 in the Sommerfeld Church in Rhineland. To this union were born three daughters. They started their married life in the Wakeham district then moved north of Austin in 1962 then to MacGregor and finally back to Morden for her last ten and half years. 

She was predeceased by her parents, five brothers, three sisters and three babies. She is survived by her husband, Abe, three daughters, Barbara (Steve, Julie, Tanya and their spouses), Mary and her husband, Ben Harder (Vicki, Tammy and their spouses), Hannah and her husband, Pat Blair (Chad, Melissa and their spouses) and thirteen great grandchildren, brother, Frank and Agatha Letkeman, sisters, Helen Wolfe, Mary and Henry Siemens and sister-in-law, Helen Letkeman.

Our mom was a very social lady. She loved to be around people. She had a special love for her children, grandchildren and great grandkids. She prayed daily for each one by name and her greatest wish was that each one would have a personal relationship with Jesus. Mom and dad celebrated their 68th anniversary at the Portage Park just over two weeks ago. She mentioned many times what a great day we all had. Mom passed away Friday morning June 8, 2018 due to a heart attack. She reached 90 years, seven months. She was looking forward to being with Jesus. 

Funeral service at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday June 13, 2018 at the Winkler Mennonite Church with interment at Haskett Cemetery. 

We, the family would like to thank all who supported and helped us during this time. Thank you for the prayers, cards and the love shown to us.
