Jesse Toews, aged 86, formerly of Steinbach, MB, passed away peacefully at the Grace Hospital in Winnipeg on August 10, 2019.
The eighth of 10 children, Justina "Jesse" Harder was born on the family farm near Plum Coulee to parents, Marie (nee Penner) and Diedrich Harder. When Jesse was nine years old, her family moved to a small homestead on Mackenzie Road in Steinbach.
