January 24, 1945 ~ November 21, 2015
Sieglinde Janzen was born in Brazil to Gustav and Maria Janzen. Sieglinde enjoyed a wonderful childhood playing in the rolling hills filled with wild flowers, chirping birds and the occasional rattle snake. At age 19 she boarded a ship with her younger brother and moved to Germany for one year and then joined her family who had immigrated to Canada. At age 30 she invited Jesus into her life. She lived in Kitsilano most of her life where she made life-long friends, served in her church, worked in the printing and magazine business and was a constant witness for her Lord. She was pre-deceased by her parents and her brothers, Johannes and Waldemar. She is survived by Siegfried, Hermann (Erica), Fridolin (Eva), Heidi (Gerry Peters), sister-in-laws Hilde Penner and Helga Janzen along with many nieces and nephews. She fought a brief battle with lung cancer and entered into the presence of her Lord while her loved ones held her hands and sang Jesus Loves Me.

A brief viewing will be held at 10:30 am at the Church, internment at Maclure Cemetery at 11:30 and Memorial Service at 2:00 pm.
