Abram (Abe) Janzen
1926 ~ 2022
On Friday February 25, 2022 at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Abe Janzen, 95 of Morden, MB formerly of MacGregor passed away.
Abe was born May 29, 1926 on the family farm in the Wakeham District, south of Morden to his parents, Diedrich and Anna (Niebuhr) Janzen. Dad was the second youngest in a family of eight. He attended Wakeham School and was baptised upon the confession of his faith in the Sommerfeld Mennonite Church. Dad married Tillie Letkeman on May 29, 1950 in the Rhineland Sommerfeld Church. To this union were born three daughters. They started their married life in the Wakeham District, then made a move to north of Austin in 1962. After a few years, they moved east of MacGregor to be closer to their church. Their last move was into Morden for the last 14 years. It was here that Mom passed away in June 2018. Dad missed mom tremendously but made the decision to remain in the house. That meant many long hours of solitude. We girls did our best to spend time with him. He received many calls from us. We made sure the house was clean and that he had lots of food and necessities. He loved to putter in his small garden and yard. He loved to share his produce with the neighbours. He had so many stories of earlier years, some we will forget and others are etched in our minds. He was ordained as Pastor of the Sommerfeld Church in 1978 and retired after 38 years of ministry. He spent many hours preparing and driving miles to fulfill God’s calling.
He was predeceased by his parents in 1950 and all his siblings and their spouses, his wife, Tillie and three children in infancy. He is survived by three daughters: Barbara of Portage La Prairie and her family, Steve and Crystal Dyck, Jonathan and Carter of Morden, Julie and Dan Friesen of Ninette, Barrett of Landmark, Aliyah and Tiana of Alberta, Tanya and Lyndon Vrooman and Xavier of St. Norbert, daughter, Mary and Ben Harder of Portage La Prairie and their family, Vicki and Jordan Thiessen and daughter, Jaimee of Burns Lake, BC, Sabrina, Michael Jones and baby, Ashlyn, Dylaen, Tammy and Craig Guinn, Jessica and Brittney all of Portage La Prairie, daughter, Hannah and Pat Blair of Portage La Prairie and their family, Chad and Adrienne, Melissa and Ryan Draycott, Ethan and Abigail all of Portage La Prairie. He is also survived by his in-laws, Henry and Mary Siemens, Helen Wolfe, Helen Letkeman and Agatha Letkeman. The last while he spoke a lot about being ready to leave this world for his heavenly home. He reached the age of 95 years, nine months and a few days. We are thankful for the new relationship we developed with him and for his appreciation of us. We will miss him so much but are so thankful that he is now with Jesus.
Private funeral service with interment at the Haskett Cemetery. We the family would like to thank everyone for the prayers and the love during this time. A special thank you to all the nurses on the surgical and medical wards and a huge thank you to Chaplain Larry.
