Annie Boehlig (nee Fehr)
1921 - 2019 
Annie Boehlig, 97, of Salem Home in Winker, MB passed away peacefully on Tuesday morning, January 15, 2019. 

She leaves behind her children, Edna Letkeman, Art (Elfriede) Boehlig and her grandchildren, Pauline (Rob) Knockaert, Chris Letkeman, Matt (Danielle) Boehlig, Daryl Boehlig, and Michelle Boehlig and her great grandchildren, Naomi, Jenaya, Eliorah and Amenita. She is survived by one sister-in-law, Helen Blatz. She was predeceased by her husband, Ernie in June of 2017, son-in-law, John Letkeman and grandson Kenneth. 

Annie was born in the Wakeham Hasket district on December 2, 1921 to David J and Elizabeth Fehr (nee Janzen) and was the last one of 19 children. Annie met Ernie at an evening service at the Osterwick school. They got married November 3, 1944 and lived at her parents’ house for two years until they started their own farm west of Osterwick. With Ernie they started the family farm, her tenacity showed up when things got tough, through illnesses and through seeing her grandchildren. She always delighted in her grandchildren and great grandchildren as she watched them play, enjoying their interests. She loved gardening and her flowers were amazing, in that she would always grow the biggest dallies around. She loved to tease and joke with dad. They were always together, never going anywhere without each other, even for coffee. Even when they went for coffee, it can be said that she never tasted it in her life. When people came over or worked for them, Mom would always be ready with a meal or faspa. Homemade ice cream parties and desserts where her specialty. She would always say that it didn’t matter who worked the most, it was about getting the job done. 

Memorial service at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday January 19, 2019 at the Winkler Mennonite Church with a private interment prior to the service at the Winkler Cemetery. 

We (the family) would like to thank the staff at Crystal City and Salem Home for their special care of mom in her last days, it should be noted that they mentioned they thought her special, in her sweet nature, how she loved people and dad. We the family are blessed to hear the testimony of staff at Salem, Mom and Dad’s love for each other and people around them. Thank you to Wiebe Funeral Home for their kindness. 

If friends so desire, donations may be made in Anne’s memory to the Gideons International-Canada.

It's sad to say good-bye to my last remaining aunt. She was my mother's Elizabeth Dyck (Fehr) youngest sister. We appreciated and enjoyed our special visits with Anne and Ernie in their family home surrounded by their beautiful gardens. The smell and taste of Anne's wonderful baking is a cherished memory.
She will be dearly missed by all.
