Katharina (Tina) Peters (nee Warkentin)
1920 – 2019
 
Tina Peters was born on August 17, 1920, in the village of Gruenfeld, in South Russia to Heinrich and Sarah Warkentin. At the age of three, Tina emigrated to Canada with her parents and two older siblings.  They settled in the village of Hochfeld, south of Winkler, where Tina attended school. In 1934, the family moved to St. Elizabeth. She attended the Lichtenauer Mennonite Church (which now stands at the Mennonite Heritage Village) and was baptised there in 1938. In 1939, she met a farmer named, Peter Peters and they were married in 1940. Tina worked on her husband’s family farm for a number of years. Later, the couple farmed together and raised their three children in the Lowe Farm community. She was a farmer who had exceptional skills, but she had to work very hard to accomplish all the chores, both indoors in the house, and outside in the barn, garden and fields.  With retirement to Winkler in 1992, her workload was lighter, but by then her mobility was limited due to osteoarthritis. When Peter died in 2007, Tina continued to live on her own for six years until she was less able to manage daily tasks. In 2013, she moved to Salem Home in Winkler where she became increasingly wheelchair bound. Her mind and spirit remained strong until June of 2019, when both cancer and congestive heart failure took away her will to live. She died peacefully on Monday June 10th, 2019, surrounded by her family.
 
She was predeceased by her husband, Peter, two sons in infancy and four siblings. She is survived by one son, two daughters and their families, which include eight grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.
 
Funeral service at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday June 15, 2019 at the Winkler Bergthaler Mennonite Church with interment at the Winkler Cemetery. If friends so desire, donations may be made In Tina’s memory to the MCC.

Thinking of you with sympathy in the passing of a very dear and always beautiful lady; many memories of visits at Salem with music, and as families when we were all younger.
