ELNORA ENNS (nee SIEMENS) 1924 - 2016 Elnora Enns, aged 92, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 29 at Salem Home, Winkler, MB. Elnora was born in Horndean, MB on April 14, 1924. She is survived by her children, Darrell and Verena Enns (Brandon), Debbie Enns and partner Glenn Nott (Winnipeg), Laurie and John Fehr (Brandon); and special cousin Kathy and Bob Menzies (Morden); nine grandchildren, Deirdre and Nathan Enns, Nola Prokipchuk, Ellery Friesen, Stephanie and Chris Lockerby, Candace and Brian Houck, Heather, Meghan and (Symon Ptashnik) and Kate Menzies; eight great-grandchildren, Mazy, Shaw, Cyrus and Arianna Enns, Jessika and Brendon Prokipchuk, Brettin, Carter and Cohen Friesen, Riel and Aliyah Lockerby; also by her brothers, Leonard Siemens, Rod Siemens (Ruth) and Dennis Siemens ( Suzanne); one sister Myrtle Dohms and many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by an infant daughter, Bonnie Darlene; her parents, Bernard and Katherine Siemens; sister Verna Sawatsky; and the love of her life, Andrew, her husband of 63 years. Elnora spent most of her life in the loving and Christian service of others, caring for her parents, her in-laws, her sister, her family, friends and countless others over the years. Elnora was a fantastic cook and baker; few people ever left Nora and Andy's house without a taste of fresh buns, cookies or pie. She loved to sew, taught many to sew over the years and created hundreds of outfits for her children, grandchildren and others, including their dolls. Elnora loved children and taking care of them, not just her own who she loved without end but many others as well. There are many more than just her own that called her Grandma. She worked tirelessly with her husband Andrew, in many projects such as the founding and development of Grace Mennonite Church. Here they served for decades as deacons and youth group leaders. Elnora and Andrew also travelled and worked all over North America with MDS, MCC and Habitat for Humanity. Elnora also worked with Andrew in several construction companies including A&E Construction in the development of almost 100 homes in Winkler and the surrounding area. She was one of a kind and will be missed by many. A celebration of her life will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, June 3, 2016 at Grace Mennonite Church, 1350 Pembina Ave. in Winkler, with interment at Winkler Cemetery. Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Salem, who supported and cared for her in some of her most difficult times. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Mennonite Disaster Service or a charity of your choice. Wiebe Funeral Home, Winkler In care of arrangements, 204-325-4201
