Walter Janzen

July 18, 1940 – January 1, 2022
Walter passed away January 1, 2022 at the age of 81. He was born in Brazil on July 18, 1940, the third child of Maria and Jacob Janzen.
In December of 1968 he moved with his family to Abbotsford, Canada.
Walter’s passion in life was farming, and so, in 1973, he established what became Janzen’s Berry Farm, starting with raspberries, followed by chicken (broilers), and blueberries.
He could grow just about anything, and took great pleasure in having an immaculate farm and garden.
Walter will be dearly missed by his extended family. He is survived by his siblings Vera Rodenstein, Irene (Hartmut) Kliewer, Krimhilde Prachnau, Else (Adolf) Penner, Gertrud (Hans) Schmid, Rudolf (Ulrike) Janzen.Obituary
