May 29, 2003

Tina Warkentin passes into the presence of the Lord she loved and served at the age of 90 years, on Thursday, May 29, 2003 at the Menno Hospital surrounded by her family. She impacted all who knew her and carried on valiantly alone for 5 years after the death of her precious husband, Abe of 63 years. She lived her life with grace and dignity and was blessed with a remarkable memory to the very end. Even though she was wheelchair bound after suffering from a stroke her thoughts were never on herself and her problems. She had a positive attitude and was genuinely interested in everyone she met. She will be missed by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who she impacted so greatly .... left behind to carry on her legacy are her four children; Dorothy (Irwin) Redekop, Carelin (Arthur) Penner, Bill (Linda) Warkentin and Bob (Debbie) Warkentin; 10 grandchildren; Shelby (Bill) Slater, Kimberly (Dave) Sieben, Holli (Greg) Edgelow, Christopher (Carla) Redekop, Carey (Sharon) Penner, Shannon (Graham) Goertzen, Todd (Chrystal) Warkentin, Jennifer (Todd) Doem and Kelli and Emily Warkentin; and 10 great grandchildren; Andrew, Courtney, Brandon, Victoria, Taylor, Riley, Sydney, Parker, Nathan and Avery as well as 5 sisters; Margaret, Susie, Mary, Freda and Ann.

Thank you to all who took such special care of her at "The Menno" ... we know you and many residents will miss her too!
