Mom was born to David and Maria Kehler (nee Harder) in the Gretna area on July 10, 1935. On November 1, 1956 she married her loving husband, Peter H Fehr. In 1957 they moved to Winnipeg and started their family. They were blessed with two daughters, Maryann and Tina. Mom was a homemaker and spent her life making a comfortable home with endless food for her family. She deferred to Dad for all decisions. We never ever heard Mom yell or complain. Even in her final days at the hospital with a fractured hip, the nurses would ask how she was feeling, and she would answer with a smile “I am ok, I am fine.” When Dad passed in August 2021, she missed him terribly, but she accepted that this was just another phase in life. Mom was very happy living at the Buhler Active Living Centre. She loved to attend the church services on Sunday mornings, and always enjoyed any musical entertainment. She appreciated the wonderful sense of community that she found there.
On Thursday November 2, 2023 at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Mary Fehr passed away leaving to mourn, her two daughters: Maryann Koop and grandchildren: Roxann, Cherylann and Ivan, great grandchildren: Kolin and Adam; daughter, Tina Scott (Bryan Sager), grandchildren: Tyler and Lindsay Paracholski (Jim Gilmore), one sister, Tina Pappel (Leonard), sisters-in-law, Nettie Kehler, Hilda Kehler, Susan Fehr and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Peter, son-in-law, Lorne, brothers, David and Peter and all of her husband’s sisters and brothers.
Memorial service at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday November 9, 2023 at Wiebe Funeral Chapel in Morden with a private family ash interment at Harvest Heritage Columbarium in Winkler.
