November 9, 1927 – January 7, 2021
Mary (Unger) Warkentin was born on November 9, 1927 in Coaldale, AB to H.J. and Anna Unger.
The Ungers moved to Black Creek, BC in 1934. Mary received Jesus into her life at age 9 and was baptized in 1945.
Mary married John Warkentin in 1952, and moved to Abbotsford, BC, where they ran a poultry farm. Mary enjoyed babysitting her grandchildren, camping, road trips, baking, knitting, and crocheting, and was involved in the church where she taught a class of adults with special needs.
John passed away in 2003. On January 7, 2021, at the age of 93, Mary was in the presence of family when she passed away due to sudden medical complications.
Predeceased by her parents, husband, two brothers, and two sisters, Mary is dearly missed by surviving friends and family, including her sister Elfrieda, five children; Ron, Judy Coleman, Dan, Lydia Haak, and Alan, 16 grandchildren, 4 step grandchildren, and 24 great-grandchildren.
