Obituary for Erna Reimer

Erna Reimer was born in Belize City to Harvey and Marie Reimer (nee Barkman). She was the oldest of four sisters and one brother who died shortly after birth.

Erna was raised on the family farm, where she milked cows and helped her mom with cleaning and cooking. Following completion of Grade 7 she worked full-time as a housekeeper in the Spanish Lookout community. In 1996 Erna moved with her family to Manitoba and they settled in the community of Okno. She found work once again as a housekeeper while continuing to manage a large garden for her family. She was particularly known for growing strawberries and saskatoons.

Erna was a support to her mom after Harvey passed away in 2015 and the two remained close. Even as Erna’s health later prevented her from obtaining full-time employment, she continued to work hard around the home until very shortly before she passed away from cancer. Erna professed faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and sought to honor Him through her life.

Funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Interlake Mennonite Fellowship Church, on Thursday, September 7, 2023, Okno, MB. Interment Interlake Mennonite Fellowship Church Cemetery.
