Cornie Reimer
1936 ~ 2020 
Cornie Reimer of Winkler formerly of Lowe Farm was born in Winnipeg July 10, 1936.  To Isaac and Anna Reimer. He was the second oldest son of Isaac Reimer’s family of 10 surviving children 
 
While growing up the family lived in several different locations like Headingley, and Myrtle, before settling north east of Plum Coulee in the Neu Kronsthal school district. Dad always excelled in academics and was able to skip grade 6 by challenging the exam with a mark of 75% or better. Dad took grade 9 by correspondence but due to labor requirements on the farm he quit school to help on their family farm. 
 
Dad accepted Jesus Christ as his saviour when he was allowed to attend bible camp after learning 200 scripture verses from memory during the summer after he completed grade five in school. He was later baptized in the Sommerfeld Mennonite Church in June 1956 
 
Also, in the summer of 1956 dad met the love of his life Annie Friesen from the Steinfeld school district south of Lowe farm. They were married in Kronsweide on October 13,1957 by then bishop John A Friesen. Mom and Dad’s marriage was one that exemplified love and commitment, lasting nearly 63 years. They started their family in August 1960 with the birth of Ken, followed by Wayne in 1961, Sharon in 1964, Randall in 1967, and Daryl in 1974. 
 
Cornie and Annie started farming in the Lowe Farm area in1958 on an 80-acre parcel of rented farmland. This was the beginning of a lifelong farming career which ended in 1997 when they retired to Winkler. Farming was still in his veins and he continued to help Ken on the farm till 2010 when he had hip surgery and was diagnosed with prostate cancer. 
 
Dad led an active community life filing different positions on various boards both in Lowe Farm and also after his retirement from farming in the community of Winkler. Every job he held was always completed with an all-in approach. 
 
Dad was predeceased by brothers Bill, Abe, and Dave, sister Betty, three sister in-laws Alice, Tina, and Susan, and his parents Isaac and Anna. 
 
He leaves to mourn his passing his wife Annie of almost 63years. Brothers Ernie, Peter, George (Anita), Isaac (Anna), Sisters Tina (Abe), and Sarah (Tim) along with many nieces and nephews. Also remaining are his immediate family: Ken (Sharon), Wayne, Sharon, Randall, and Daryl and their families including 13 grandchildren, and their families including 16 great grandchildren. 
 
Dad was not a complainer. He was prepared to work in whatever capacity the Lord laid on him till he no longer could. On August 30th at 1:45pm all remaining appointments were cancelled due to his passing.  Looking back, we recognize that dad was looking forward to his induction into his heavenly home to meet his Lord and creator. Dads new body will not be fighting for his next breath nor will cancer be attacking and weakening his body or Covid threatening and controlling his life. Dad, as we reflect on your life, we are challenged to reflect on our own lives to prepare for our “expiry date”. We grieve your passing and you are missed by many here on earth. 
 
Till we meet again.
The family
