SANDRA EILEEN JANZEN
Born October 6, 1957 in Winkler, Manitoba to John J. and Mary (Peters) Fehr, Sandra was the third of five Fehr children.
On September 21, 1979 Sandra was wed to the love of her life Dale Janzen, with whom she spent the next nearly 40 years with, as a wife, mother, partner and friend. Their love was one of true tenderness, a true love story. They shared two daughters who meant the world to Sandra, Kristin Bozyk (Joe) and Monica Danylchuk (John).
In 1979 Sandra and her father John started the business named Fehr Way Tours. Sandra was a natural people person who loved seeing the smiles of their clients, clients who in turn loved dealing with the ever pleasant Sandra, who sincerely enjoyed their company as they travelled North America. She also showed genuine leadership skills as she and Dale participated in the family business. They would later go on to start a new venture in 2007 with their daughters Kristin and Monica named Spalifestyle and Boutique Inc. which is still run by their daughters.
Sandra's charisma shone the brightest. She was really a shining star, perhaps too bright for this world. She possessed the uncanny ability to make anyone at any time feel special and loved. She was known for her quality of character where she put others before herself, even when she found herself ill. If anyone she cared for, family or friend, was in need, Sandra was there to lend an ear or shoulder to cry on; to do whatever it was she could do to help up until the very end.
Sandra and her enchanting laugh will be missed by all, especially those she is loved most and remembered by; her husband of just shy of 40 years Dale Janzen; daughters, Kristin Bozyk (Joe) and Monica Danylchuk (John); her beloved, cherished grandchildren, Noah Bozyk, Ethan Bozyk and Madeline Danylchuk. Also surviving are her mother Mary (Peters) Fehr; sisters, Rosie Klassen (Peter), Lorraine Toews; brother John D. Fehr; and sister Diane Fehr Palmer (Mil); as well as her brothers-in-law, Bruce (Charlene) Janzen, Gary (Karen) Janzen and Warren (Dorothy) Janzen; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded on the journey to her Heavenly home by her dear father, John J. Fehr and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Jake and Dorothy (Toews) Janzen.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Salter Oliver and Dr. Erin Dean; as well as a profound thank you to all the doctors and nurses at CancerCare, all the doctors and nurses at Palliative Care especially Kyah were incredible.
A celebration of Sandra's life will be held at McIvor Church, 200 McIvor Ave. Friday, August 16, 2019 at 12:00 (noon). Pastor Gary Janzen and Reverend Warren Janzen officiating.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

My sincere condolences to Dale, Kristin and Monica and family. It was my pleasure to be involved with starting the fashion division of their latest business venture, Spa Lifestyle and Fashion Boutique. I know how very proud Sandra was of her daughters and their accomplishments. To see them happily married and to be blessed with grandchildren was, I'm sure, one of her greatest joys. Her ambition, her positive attitude and zest for life will continue to inspire you in the coming years. May all the good memories of her gracious spirit sustain you in the days to come.

Although I did not know her well, Sandra was known to me through my friends at OMCA and I met her a number of times during Annual General Meetings and Conventions. A lovely woman who always seemed to be cheerful and willing to help when asked. I know she will be missed. I am so sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Richard Buck (Acquaintance) on: Aug 12, 2019
Our condolences to Dale, Monica and Kristin and all the family. Our friendship with Sandra started through the Ontario Motor Coach Association where Sandra and Dale would participate to expand their tour business. Sandra had that engaging personality and strong character that created respect and made people feel good. Sandra, with Dale, worked not to just build their company but to grow the industry. She never said no to an opportunity to help. Many of us had the good fortune to enjoy her hospitality in their home whenever in Winnipeg. We, along with so many others miss her and will continue to miss her. Marilyn and Brian Crow - Posted by: Brian E Crow (Friend) on: Aug 12, 2019
Sincere condolence to the Fehr family. Love & prayers, Fran - Posted by: Fran Jackson (Former tour guide with Moose Mountain (friend)) on: Aug 12, 2019
Dear Dale and family. Sincere condolences in the loss of your loved one. Brought back fond memories of you Dale and your parents and brothers. I will always remember you being my most enthusiastic member in my children's choir at Elmwood Bethel Mennonite Church when you were 9 years old. Your folks were such dear friends and even came to visit us in Edmonton. I also read with interest that Garry and Warren are pastors. Wouldn't surprise me if you were a pastor too as you were such a outgoing friendly boy. My husband Bernie passed away in 2017 from lung cancer at 80 years and 60 years of marriage. May the Lord give you strength and courage in the years ahead. God is so loving and kind and walks with me every day. Such a comfort. Love + prayers Mildred Loewen - Posted by: Mildred Loewen (Friend) on: Aug 12, 2019
Sandra was our next door neighbor. A beautiful park separates our properties & we shared the same creek, hence Eagle Creek Drive. Sandra was a dear friend of mine for many years. We celebrated our birthdays & many happy times together. We were shocked to learn of Sandra’s plight, a life taken much too soon. I have many fond memories of Sandra. Our prayers & thoughts go out to Dale, Monica & Kristen & extended families. - Posted by: Carol & Jon Kreviazuk (Friend) on: Aug 10, 2019
I was a good friend of her father John and he encouraged me to try Tour Directing. I was privileged to go on a training trip with Sandra for a week. She totally impressed me and I have thought the world of her ever since. She had so much to give and was taken too soon. My condolences to Dale and all the Fehr family.
