OBITUARY

Penny Ann Klein

June 3, 1952August 10, 2019

Penny Ann Klein (von Ferber) was born on June 3, 1952 in Indian Head, SK and passed away on August 10, 2019 at Wascana Rehabilitation Center with her family by her side.

She was predeceased by her parents Mabel (Holzapfel) and Karl von Ferber and in-laws Cecelia (Runge) and Andrew Klein.

Penny will be remembered by David, her husband of 47 years, her children Kelly (Crystal) Klein and Kristal (Tyler) Dickie and her grandchildren Anakin, Olivia, Kingston and Hawken, whom she adored. She is also survived by David’s siblings Vernon (Linda) Klein, Darlene (Bill) McLeod, Francis (Clara) Klein, Marion (Lyle) Ballard, Jeananne (Kelly) Glacken, Andrew Jr. (Yolanda) Klein, Lorne (Donna) Klein, Sharon (Cary) Hewitt, Sheila (Jamie) Seiferling and their families, as well as numerous cousins, particularly her cousin Brenda Miller.

Penny grew up on the farm near Odessa, SK and graduated from Odessa High School. She got her teaching certificate from the University of Regina and went on to teach elementary school in Francis, Lynn Lake, MB and Canora. Penny and David were married in 1972 and lived in Lynn Lake, MB, Canora and Regina over the next number of years. Kelly and Kristal were welcomed to the family and Penny chose to become a full-time mom. In 1983, Penny and David returned to her family farm where she lived and worked until 2011. Throughout her entire life, Penny was an integral part of the farming operation, first with her parents and then with David. Penny was an excellent cook and baker, a wonderful gardener, an avid reader and a volunteer in the community and church. Most importantly, she was the very best wife, mom and grandma. Her and David enjoyed many vacations over the years, particularly their annual trip to the Canadian Finals Rodeo in Edmonton, winter holidays to various hot destinations and time spent at the lake house in Katepwa. Penny’s life was profoundly changed in December 2011 as the result of a motor vehicle collision. She suffered a severe brain injury and spent her last years at Wascana Rehabilitation Center, Unit 2-5.

The family would like to thank everyone at WRC including the physicians, staff, residents and families for the care, compassion and friendship they provided to Penny and her family.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.” A private family funeral will be held at a later date.

My deepest sympathies to Dave and family. One of my favorite memories of Penny was when my son was about 5 years old Penny was the sunday school teacher at our church. It happened one sunday that my son was the only child in church and Penny still took him down for sunday school. I would have understood if she chose to skip sunday school that day but because of the wonderful person Penny was she took him anyway. She will be truly missed by so many.

We were so sorry to hear of Penny’s passing.
No words can express the feelings of loss of a family member.
We’ll always remember the kind words that Penny wrote to us when Ryan passed away. It meant so much to us.
Penny was a beautiful person both inside and out and we know that hole your hearts will always be there. Be kind to yourselves and know that there are others that have felt that pain. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

To all of Penny’s family—Penny was such a beautiful woman in every way. She was gracious, kind, loving and faithful. She found such delight in her family and there was never a time when you didn’t bring her joy. The last years of her life robbed her of many things but not your love nor God’s profound love for her. Be at peace, Penny.

Words are insufficient to express the deep sadness and loss I feel as I read of Penny’s passing. To you David, Kelly and Krystal - and extended family I extend my sincere condolences. It has been my joy and pleasure to have known David , Penny and the family for 25 years as lay pastor at their Francis church. It always gave me great joy on Sunday mornings, as I stood st front of the church , ready to start to see David and Penny walk down the aisle , greeting all as they passed to their cushioned pew at the front. And this is what we now revisit- the good times we were blessed to share. Penny is now at peace and free from her hospital containment. I wish the peace of Jesus upon each of you as you pass through this difficult time. Jim Toth
