Eva Fehr (nee Heppner)
1925 - 2019
 
Eva Fehr nee Heppner, 93, of Winkler formerly of Altona and Rosetown passed away peacefully on the morning of January 20, 2019 at Salem Home.
 
Eva was born to Peter and Elizabeth Heppner on February 12th, 1925 at their home South of Plum Coulee. She received her education in Rudnerwiede. She was baptized upon the confession of her faith June 11, 1946 in the Sommerfeld Church by Bishop Peter Toews. She was faithful to this commitment all of her life. She later transferred to the Winkler Bergthaler Mennonite Church.
 
On October 28, 1956 she married John Fehr, and they were happily married for forty-five and a half years. Together they were blessed with two sons Melvin and Ken. They farmed in the Rosetown area, and enjoyed life in the country-side.  She was a very loving and caring mother and grandmother. She kept busy with gardening, cooking, baking, helped with getting parts, delivering meals to the field and helping John and the boys on the farm where ever she could.
 
They retired to Altona in 1984 and lived there for thirteen years. In 1997, they moved to Winkler and resided at Crocus. Here, she helped take care of John, and often had family and friends over for faspa, and afternoon coffee. She was a mentor to many, as she always had a positive outlook on life and never failed to put a smile on your face. She always offered her encouragement and prayed for those she loved. She was our prayer warrior. Eva enjoyed puzzling, knitting, crocheting, playing games on the 7th floor of Crocus, bible study and having a good visit over coffee. 
 
In February of 2018, her health began to slowly deteriorate. She was hospitalized for several weeks, but was able return home for two weeks before being hospitalized again. She remained in hospital until she was placed into Rock Lake Health District Personal Care Home in Pilot Mound on August 14, 2018. Despite being so far from home she really enjoyed her time there, and received wonderful care from the staff. She was then moved to Salem Home on December 13, 2018. She was excited to be back in Winkler, and family was grateful to have her close to home again. We were able to share what would be our last Christmas with her. She enjoyed the company, and watching her great-grandchildren run around playing with each other. She even made the comment that she had a beautiful family and was very blessed.
 
Left to mourn and cherish her memory are her loving son Ken, wife Eleanor, and their three daughters Karissa, husband Justin Falk and their children Presley, Nixon, and Blakely, Dayna, husband Tremayne Wall and their children Bowen, Lennon and Rylie, Kelly, and fiancé Evan Giesbrecht. A daughter-in-law Lynette Fehr, husband Ben Dyck, and Lynette’s three sons Brent, wife Jamie and their children Sophie and Shea, Derek, wife Shannon and their children Sienna and Easton, Mitch and wife Meaghan.
 
She also leaves to mourn a sister Hilda, husband Abe Driedger, two sisters-in-laws Tina Heppner and Zelma Fehr, many nieces, nephews, and friends.
 
She was predeceased by her husband John, her son Melvin, as well as her parents, one brother and one sister.
 
Eva is now resting in Heaven, where she has been ready to go for sometime now. Her wish was to go in her sleep, and we are grateful for this to come true. She will be sadly missed by all whose lives were touched by her. May she rest in peace.

I love the picture you have chosen for Aunt Eva's obituary. Her smile never failed, her enthusiasm was a constant. She was faithful to her family and her love for all of you was always in evidence when we visited. She showed us that a long and faithful life is possible! We'll miss you Aunt Eva but are glad you are at rest in the everlasting arms!
