FROESE; Kornelia

September 20, 1919 ~ February 16, 2016

Kornelia Froese, late of the Menno Home in Abbotsford, passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus during her sleep, early Tuesday morning, February 16th at the age of 96. She was predeceased by her husband, Rev. P.J. Froese, and her granddaughter, Rhonda Koop. She is survived by her 8 children and their spouses, Wally (Velma), Nellie (Erwin Foth), John (Alita), Menno (Phyllis), Ernie (Mary), Peter (Ruth), Harry (Alvira), and Linda (Ray Poetker), plus numerous nieces and nephews. She was also blessed with 21 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren, plus 3 on the way, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. She will always be remembered by her family for her cheerful positive attitude, her kindness and bravery, and her Godly influence in all of our lives. She was a dedicated prayer warrior who prayed daily for her large family-remembering each one by name. She will be sadly missed, yet we rejoice because we know she is now with the Lord, whom she loved with all of her heart. A special thanks to all the staff at the Menno Home W1 for their loving care, and for the joy they brought into her life this past year.
