Ernie David Janzen
1949 – 2022
On Sunday September 25, 2022 at the age of 72 years, after enduring a lengthy battle of COPD, Ernie passed away at his residence in Portage La Prairie, MB with his special friend, Joyce by his side.
He leaves to mourn his passing his daughter, Sheila (Ken) Thiessen, son, Darren (Chelsea), five grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents, David and Tina Janzen and his brother, Len.

Ernie was born in Altona, MB on December 11, 1949 to David and Tina Janzen and grew up on the family farm in Rosetown, MB with is three younger siblings Esther, Marlene and Leonard. On March 18, 1979 dad recognized his need for his Savior, at which time he invited Christ into his life. He was baptized upon the confession of his faith on June 7, 1981. It didn’t seem to matter what situation he was in, he went out of his way to get to know people. He was always ready for a coffee and a visit. Each and every occupation he held in life whether it was carpentry, real estate, and finally in his “retirement” years trucking and driving school bus for GVSD, he did so with unbridled passion.

Dad, we will miss you, but we are grateful that your battle with COPD is over.

"Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind who have no hope." 1 Thessalonians 4:13
