JOHN PETER KRAHN
OCT 06, 1914 – APRIL 10, 2008
It is with sadness and rejoicing that the family of John Peter Krahn announces his passing into the presence of his Lord on April 10, 2008.
John will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Helene of 66 years, their four children Hans (Rosetta), Fred (Judy), Anne (Vic) Jesse, Helen (Harry) Jesse, fourteen grandchildren and 31 great grandchildren, many friends and relatives.
John was born Oct 6, 1914 in Kronstal, Ukraine to Peter and Elizabeth Krahn. In 1942 he was married to Helene Sawatzky . He spent his young adult years working as an accountant for the village of Kronstal. With the perils of war he fled with his young family to Germany and in 1948 immigrated to Abbotsford, British Columbia. To support his family he worked many years for the CPR, building and maintaining railways, he also operated a berry and poultry farm. Later in life, as his business expanded he once again practiced his original profession as business accountant. He found great joy in serving the Lord in different capacities within his church.
The family would like to thank the staff at MSA hospital 2 west, and the staff at Worthington Pavillion for their loving care and support.
A celebration of John’s life will be held Thursday, April 17th 2008 @ 12:00 @ Eben-Ezer Mennonite church, 2306 Windsor St. Abbotsford, with graveside service @ 10:30 @ Maclure Cemetery, Maclure Rd. Abbotsford.
