OLIVE JULIA KUNZELMAN (nee JOHNSON) 1924 - 2019 On Saturday, February 23, 2019, at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Olive Kunzelman passed away peacefully, with her family by her side. She will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her daughter, Bernice Enns (Richard), son, Barry (Nowell), and grandchildren, Michael Enns (Maria), Marci Miller (Brian), Matthew Enns (Leanne), Morgan Lambert (Brent), Andrew Kunzelman (Melissa Wiebe) and Melissa Kunzelman. She will also be fondly remembered by her great-grandchildren, Alexandria and Kaitlin Miller and Dylan and Brooklyn Lambert. She was predeceased by her husband, Philip, one daughter and two sons in infancy, her parents, J.B. and Jona Johnson, sister, Marcelia, and brother, Benny. Olive was born on June 24, 1924 in Morden. She grew up and went to school in the 1-6 district. She married Philip in 1948 and they farmed in the 1-6 district until 1961 when they moved to a farm south of Morden. After Philip's death in 1994, Olive moved into Morden where she lived until her passing. Olive had a lifelong passion for horses and dogs which was evident in her home. She also had a great love for flowers. She spent a lot of time tending her flower beds and was very proud of them. It was a sad day when she decided to give them up. Olive was a farmer's wife and a stay at home mom. When we grew up, Mom started work as a nurse's aide and later as Activities Director at Tabor Home. She worked there for 15 years and developed a great love for the residents. After her retirement to town, she spent a lot of time at the Friendship Centre socializing, playing cards and shuffleboard. Over the years, she made many friends and valued them all. She was always positive, non-complaining and had a large smile and twinkle in her eye. She loved to tease and kibbitz with everyone. Memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at Wiebe Funeral Chapel in Morden. A private family ash interment will take place in the spring on a nice warm day. We would like to thank everyone, especially her friends at Vista Terrace and Homestead South for making her years so enjoyable. Also thank you for supporting us as a family in our time of grief. We will miss her very much and are very grateful for her amazing, long, healthy and happy life of 94 and a half years. Until we meet again. Love ya, Mom and Gramma! If friends so desire, donations may be made in Olive's memory to either the Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation (designated to Palliative Care) or to the Pembina Valley Humane Society. Wiebe Funeral Chapel, Morden In care of arrangements
