Isaac Fehr
1938 – 2020
On Sunday, January 26, 2020 Isaac Fehr of Winkler, MB passed away peacefully at Boundary Trails Health Centre after a long battle with cancer.
Isaac was born to Cornelius and Maria (Unrau) Fehr on March 29, 1938 in Chortitz, Mexico. He was the eighth of sixteen siblings. He grew up in the village of Chortitz in Mexico. In 1957, Isaac met the love of his life, Katharina Penner. That same year, he was baptized upon confession of his faith by Bishop Isaak Dyck in the Old Colony Mennonite Church. He and Katharina were united in marriage on September 28, 1958 and were married for 61 years. They were blessed with eleven children. During the early years of their marriage, Isaac and Katharina lived in the village of Chortitz, Mexico. Isaac worked several jobs, including making leather harnesses, ranch hand, and herding the village cattle. In 1970, they made the decision to move to Manitoba, Canada. They settled first in Plum Coulee and later moved to a farm near Gretna. Isaac spent most of his working years in Canada as a hog farm worker. They also raised their family on a farm, growing vegetables and fruit, raising cattle for beef and selling cream to the Manco creamery. Although Isaac worked hard to provide for the family, there was usually time for fun on the weekends. Many Sunday afternoons and evenings were spent visiting with friends and family. He also enjoyed fishing and after his retirement, he and Katharina would often spend a day fishing with friends or family. Isaac struggled with health issues for many years, and eventually succumbed to cancer. Especially in his last months, Isaac longed for his eternal home, and we thank and praise God for His promises which assure us that he is now with his Saviour.
He will be missed and remembered by his devoted wife, Katharina, son-in-law, Abe (Maria and David Brown and their sons, Ethan and Matthew, Ike and Patty), son, Jake, daughter, Anna and her husband, Joseph, son, Cornie and his wife, Susan (Sylvia and Matthew), son, Ike and his wife, Marge (Kristen and husband, Harrison, Luke), daughter, Tina and her husband, Harv (Rebecca, Daniel, Gabriel), daughter, Susan and her husband, Jake (Alison and husband, Travis and their son, Malachi, Jenna and husband, Brad, Cassandra and husband, David), daughter, Helen, son, John and his wife, Phyllis (Kaitlin, Samuel, Thomas, Elizabeth), son, Dick and his wife, Jolene. He was predeceased by son, Isaac in infancy, daughter, Maria, and grandson, Abe. He is survived by five siblings.
 The family would like to extend special thanks to the wonderful doctors, nurses, aides, and palliative care staff at Boundary Trails Health Centre for your gentle and patient care of Dad, the ministerial and members of the church who frequently visited and offered encouragement and to friends and family for your prayers and support in the last difficult months. Donations may be made in Isaac’s memory to the Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation (designated to Palliative Care).
