OBITUARY

Sarah Reimer

June 20, 1926October 5, 2019

Peacefully on October 5, 2019, Sarah “Sadie” Reimer was united with her Lord and Saviour, and reunited with her loving husband Jake.

She will be deeply missed by her children: Sandra (Mike), Dennis, Al, Barry (Julie), Audrey, Randy, Carol, Brian, and Dave; grandchildren Matthew (Robyn), James, Ethan, Jacqueline (Wes), Lisa (Leroy), Caitlin, Dan, Breanne, Shawn, Cierra (Herman), Savanna, Kayla, Madelaine; greatgrandchildren Jaiya, Landyn, Luxon, and Avynne. She is also survived by 3 sisters-in-law Eva Heinrichs, Anne Elias, and Sue Reimer, and one brother-in-law Frank Blatz. She also leaves to mourn numerous nieces and nephews, her extended family Suzette and Adam Chrobak, and cherished friends John and Izzy Heide.

Mom was predeceased by her loving husband Jake (Jacob), brothers George, Jacob, Carl, Claude, and Peter; sisters Tina, Mary, Anne, and Maggie (Margarite); as well as sisters-in-law Suzie and Marie; special friend Elaine (Blatz); brothers-in-law Peter, George, Abraham (Abe), Norman, and Peter.

Mom was born in Halbstadt, Manitoba on June 20, 1926 to Jacob and Maria Heinrichs, and baptised at the age of 18 in the Summerfeld Church. She worked various jobs in the Winkler area until moving to Winnipeg, where she worked in the King Edward Hospital until her marriage to Dad on November 15, 1953 in Schauntzenfeld, Manitoba. It was then that the adventure began for Mom, moving right away to Red Deer, Alberta where they lived until returning to Winnipeg in 1955 with their first-born child. Over the next ten years, they added 5 more children to the roster and in 1966, they moved to Starbuck, Manitoba for only 6 months when Dad was transferred to Ottawa, where they resided for the next 6 years and added 3 more children to the family. In 1972, they family returned to Winnipeg and lived in St. Vital until 2014. At that time, Mom moved to Lindenwood Manor where she resided for her remaining years. She was grateful for the friendships she formed as well as the excellent care she received in these last years. Mom particularly enjoyed the many activities she participated in while in residence. A special thank you to Susan Thiessen for her daily devotional visits with Mom, and Helen Reimer for the friendship and fellowship she gave to Mom until the very end.

Mom’s first priority was always to her Lord Jesus, who she relied on and trusted fully to see her through the daily trials of life; and she praised him daily for the many blessings in her life. She taught all of her children to love the Lord and gave us encouragement at all times to trust and have the faith that God is in control.

A Come and Go Viewing and Visitation will take place from 7:00 – 8:30 on Thursday October 10 at Green Acres Funeral Home, Highway 1 East at Navin Road. Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 PM on Friday, October 11 at Morrow Gospel Church, 755 St. Anne’s Road, with interment to follow at Green Acres Cemetery.

If friends so desire, donations may be made to Lindenwood Manor.

We remember the time your mom was out for a visit and when she bent down to put on her shoes she broke a rib and didn't even complain about it. Your mom was a tough cookie.
Both your parent were wonderful people and we are glad that they are once again reunited!
Prayers and hugs to the ones left behind with all the memories!

Our Thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time of need.

I was Sarah"s neighbour for 23 years on Handyside. There are many fond memories of Sarah as well as her children (quite a crew lol) and her husband Jake (who was quick with a remark, even if you did not agree with him)

My family and I will forever treasure Sarah and her husband and children!

The memories will live on!

John & I would like to express our sympathy to the family. With the roads being as they are we will not be able to attend the funeral. We appreciated her fellowship at the Manor with Esther. Blessings to you all.

Reimer Family, so sorry for the loss of a great woman, baker, chef, and especially all of Mrs. Reimer's hugs, laughs and uncontrollable giggles. I will always remember your mom for her love and compassion.

Sorry, I can not be there in person. Your mom touched so many people in her life, I will however, take a few moments and send you my prayers for strength to get you through these tough times.

Remember, Mrs. Reimier, your mom, was proud of all of you and raised you to be the very special people you are today. Hugs to each of you! Michelle

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear Mom. My prayer is that you find peace during this difficult time of sorrow. May you feel God's ever nearest as you walk this journey together till you meet again in heaven.
Our mothers are now together with Jesus. Praise the Lord! Their battles are over!

We were so blessed to have aunt Sadie in our lives and especially have the fondest childhood memories of your family visits at grandma and grandpa Reimers. We will do well to emulate her faithful life and example of love to her family and friends. May God comfort and bless you in this time of loss and reflection. Harold and Bev Dueck
