David Marvin Enns
1930 – 2019
 
David Marvin Enns passed away on Wednesday July 31, 2019, at the age of 89 at Salem Personal Care Home in Winkler, MB.
 
Marvin will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife, Anne, his five children, Van Enns, Leora Epp (George), Marlee Enns (Russell Plett), Corinne Enns, and David Enns; by his seven grandchildren, Matthew Epp (Ece), Nathania Sharpe (Ian), Tobin Epp (Joelle), Rebekah VanHell (Dennis), Riley Epp, Abby Matchet (Miles), and Ashley Epp; additionally by ten great-grandchildren, one surviving sister and many other relatives and friends.
 
Marvin was born in Carman, Manitoba on June 23, 1930 to Frank M. and Maria (Loewen) Enns. He grew up with one brother and four sisters on the family farm just north of Winkler in the Burwalde School District.
Marvin attended school at Burwalde before moving on to help his father on the family farm. He enjoyed machinery more so than tending animals. Marvin met Anne Harder at the Winkler Bergthaler Church as a young man. They were married in 1951. Together they attended and graduated from Briercrest Bible Institute in Caronport, Saskatchewan. Following this education, they moved back to Burwalde where they took over the family farm, converting it from a mixed operation into a grain farm. It was here that they raised their five children; three girls and two boys. Marvin was an inquisitive man, always wanting to know more about the latest farming practices and new machinery in particular. He welcomed university crop researchers who would work test plots on his land. He involved himself in the community as a member of the local Manitoba Pool board, the school board, and as a deacon at Grace Mennonite Church where he and Anne were members for many years. In his later years, he enjoyed some traveling and finding opportunity to spend more time with family and friends.
 
The funeral service for Marvin was held at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 4, 2019 at the Grace Mennonite Church in Winkler with interment at the Winkler Cemetery. The family wishes to extend words of special thanks to staff from the Home Care program at Garden Park Estates and to those at Salem Home for their years of care. Donations in Marvin‘s memory may be made to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
