Linda Janzen (nee Peters)
Today we celebrate the life of Linda Janzen (nee Peters) and her passing from this life to her eternal home. She was born on February 8, 1916 to David and Susan Peters. She was the 5th child of a family of 8.
Mom was born one mile north of Winkler. She grew up on a farm and with that came many chores. Whether assigned or chosen, her favorite was to get on her horse and round up the cows. Mom told us that when she was about 9 years old she was responsible for driving a team of horses with a grain wagon to the nearest town. When Mom left home she went to work as a farm hand and it was there that she met her future husband.
Mom & Dad were married on November 7, 1937 and from that union 3 children were born; Bernie, Elsie and Barb. Mom & Dad continued to work as farm hands in the Winkler and Alexander areas in the first few years of their marriage. In 1947 they moved to Winkler. Mom worked alongside Dad painting many of the houses he built.
Mom was a hard worker and a very good provider for her family. She planted large gardens to can and freeze fruit and vegetables for the family. Bernie remembers picking buckets of raspberries. Barb remembers complaining about shelling tubs and tubs of peas only to be reminded by Mom, "You will be happy to have these to eat in the winter time." Mom was a good cook. She made the best perogies and baked the best buns. Elsie remembers eating many fresh baked buns as they came out of the oven. Mom also took time to sew clothes and knit sweaters for her family. In later years we appreciated having learned these skills ourselves as we later provided for our families. When the children left home Mom spent more time knitting and crocheting. Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren are enjoying many of the beautiful knitted afghans she created. Mom's family always came first.
In their early retirement, Mom & Dad enjoyed some traveling and numerous camping and fishing trips with their friends.
Mom had a quiet kind of faith in the Lord and was concerned that their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren would grow in their Christian faith. She was faithful in attending church as long as she was able. When her cancer took over she preferred to stay home and watch Christian programs.
In the fall of 2001 Mom was diagnosed with cancer. She endured surgery, chemotherapy and radiation without complaint. In the next 1 ½ years she was able to travel west on 2 occasions to visit her son, Bernie, in High River, AB. and her sisters in Salmon Arm, BC and Olds, AB. When she returned from her last holiday this past summer, it was confirmed that her cancer was back. It was her decision not to take treatment but to wait for her journey to her heavenly home. We, as children, are thankful that she did not have a lengthy illness.
She was predeceased by her husband John. Mom will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her children: Bernie (Sheila) Janzen; Elsie (Len) Peters; Barb (Ernie) Wiebe, 8 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
