Mom was baptized in 1948 and became a member of the Sommerfeld Mennonite Church. She married Diedrich Fehr on September 23, 1951.
Mom kept very busy on the family farm raising six children and also worked for many years at Hi-Way Inn in Altona. Her hobbies were gardening, singing in various choirs, playing musical instruments, in later years crocheting blankets for everyone in her family, and enjoying the company of family and friends.
Mom and Dad sold their farm near Altona in February of 2006 and moved to Winkler to enjoy their second retirement. Three years after Dad’s passing, Mom moved back to Altona and reconnected with childhood friends but never forgot her friends she made in Winkler.
