Sarah Enns (nee Teichroeb)
1920 ~ 2022
 

Sarah Enns, of Winkler, Manitoba peacefully passed away on Monday February 7th, 2022, at Boundary Trails Health Centre at the age of 101.

Sarah was predeceased by her first husband, Johan Wiens in 1947, by her second husband, Jacob T. Gerbrand in 1978, by her third husband, Wm. P.E. Enns in 2012, one son, two sons-in-law and 11 siblings. Sarah is survived by her two daughters, two sons and their wives, 10 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and seven great great grandchildren and a great number of others who call her mom and grandma.

Sarah was born in Blumenhof, Saskatchewan on May 4th, 1920. It was there where she met and married Johan Wiens. Johan worked on the railroad while she stayed home with two children. In 1942 the family moved to Vanderhoof, British Columbia, where Johan worked in a sawmill. Sarah continued to stay home with the children, and it was while living in Vanderhoof they had three more children. Johan accidently passed away in 1947 and their last child was five months old when he passed away in 1948. On July 4th, 1950, Sarah and her four children moved halfway across the country to the Winkler countryside. In August she married Jacob T. Gerbrand. They lived and worked on the farm. The previous years of gardening continued to be an enjoyment for Sarah, not only to help feed her family but to keep her hands busy. Sarah worked on the farm, never working away from the farm. Jacob T. Gerbrand passed away on the farm in 1978. Sarah married Wm. P.E. Enns in 1980. They lived on his farm and then moved into Winkler. Sarah enjoyed flowers and continued to grow them in their flowerbeds. Wm. P.E. Enns passed away in 2012. There were so many things that Sarah would busy herself with when the chores of life were done for the day. She of course enjoyed gardening and other crafty things, such as knitting, crocheting, puzzling, travelling, and painting. There were always one or more of these items around her home, and other people’s homes. Although Sarah has lived in the Winkler area for a good portion of her life, she loved Vanderhoof the best. It was there that her family developed their strong family bond. Sarah was well liked at her residence. She was respected by the staff and neighbours. She enjoyed puzzling and visiting with the other residents and neighbours at the Buhler Active Living Centre. In the 101+ years of Sarah’s life, she saw and experienced so much; oh, how the world has changed and evolved. She handled life with grace and with so much spunk and those helped her to stay strong till the end. Thank you to each and every one who was a part of Sarah’s life.
