Elma Ginter (nee Kehler)
1944 - 2020
With sad hearts we announce the passing of Elma Ginter on Thursday May 7, 2020 after a battle with cancer. Elma died peacefully with her husband, Abe, sister, Martha, brother in-law, Harry, sister, Dorothy, brother in-law, Dave and sister in-law, Mary by her side. Annette, Darryl, Alexa and Evan were unable to be in hospital but did share her last moments via FaceTime.
Elma was born on August 22, 1944 to Anna and Henry Kehler in Altona, MB. As a believer, it was important for Elma to make the commitment to the Lord with baptism. On June 9, 1963 (19 years old) she did so at Sommerfelder Mennonite Church in Winkler. In 1960, she met Abe Ginter. After three years of getting to know each other, they wed on September 29, 1963 going on to have one child, Annette. Elma started her work career as a sewer at the Winkler Sewing Factory in 1960; went onto Triple E in 1974 to retire in 2005, after 31 great years. Elma appreciated all the friendships she had made over the years. Mom loved visiting her kids and grandkids. Filling our tummies brought her great joy – the best chocolate trifle in town. She lived for the family. Mom always had pocket mints ready and was willing to share. A passion of serving at church was how she spent her free time. Coffee time with the ladies at the local coffee spot always gave her the opportunity to share photos and stories of the kids.
Elma was predeceased by her parents, Anna and Henry, brother, Jake and sister, Nettie. Elma is survived by her husband, Abe, daughter, Annette (Darryl), her two grandchildren, Alexa and Evan, her two sisters, Martha (Harry), Dorothy (Dave), stepbrothers and sisters and nieces and nephews.
Mom was feisty, generous, energetic and loving. She made a great impact on our lives. Thanks for all you’ve done. You will be missed. We love you. Until we meet again.
Our family would like to thank the medical staff for their service, compassion and understanding during this difficult time. We thank friends and family for the prayers of encouragement, healing and support.

The loss of a spouse is such a difficult time in life and the more years together the more you must have come to depend on each other. Was just telling Mom the other day that each time we ran into each other the more I thought of what a "couple who had it" you were. Take care and God bless!
