OBITUARY

Mrs. Dorothy Margaret RENKEWITZ

19 September, 193225 December, 2020

After a full and rich life of 88 years, Dorothy passed away at home on December, 2020. She was the beloved wife of the late John Renkewitz. She was also predeceased by two sisters, and three brothers. She leaves behind her sister-in-law Agnes Renbeurt, numerous nieces and nephews, in Canada and the United States, to remember the last of her generation.

Outside of a brief time in England, Dorothy lived her life in Winnipeg, worked for the Canadian Wheat Board and enjoyed 44 years of marriage to John.

Dorothy was an avid curler and has continued to be active with friends, in bowling, yoga and line dancing.

At home she enjoyed knitting and the company of Sammy and Buddy and until May her parrot, Mork. She was also a long time member of the Holy Redeemer Parish.

Dorothy was her own person and proud of it. She was determined to live her life the way she wanted and to the fullest, right to the end. Those who knew Dorothy will remember her dry wit.

Due to COVID restrictions, a private service and internment will be held at Green Acres Memorial Gardens.

Words of condolence for the family can be left on the Klassen Funeral Chapel website.
