It is with sadness, we the family, announce the passing of Helen Janzen (nee Enns) on Sunday, June 5, 2022 at Bethania Mennonite Personal Care Home.
Our loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother will be remembered and dearly missed by her husband Henry; daughter Margaret (Henry) Daniels; grandchildren, Andrea (Phil), Julie (Zach) with great- grandchildren, Otto and Ambrose, Philip (Jessica); daughter Anne (Gerhard) Heidebrecht; grandchildren, Krista (Daryl) with great-grandchildren, Braden and Cohen, David (Sydney), Steven (Megan); son Henry (Lara) Janzen; grandchildren, Luke and Micah; daughter Doris (Jake) Friesen; daughter Carolene (Wally) Funk; grandchildren, Macaila, Jenae and Dannica.
Helen Janzen was born November 29, 1926 in Neuendorf, Ukraine. She grew up in the tumultuous times during Stalin's rule. She went to grade school and spoke German, Russian and Ukrainian. As church services were not permitted, they met in secret to worship. Helen was baptized June, 1947 in Germany.
Helen was kind hearted, slow to anger, loving and patient. Her love extended beyond her family, never judging, always loving and accepting. Her unwavering faith and quiet strength are what made her a true role model.
Helen moved to Bethania Mennonite Personal Care Home March 9, 2017. We would like to thank the staff and Dr. C. Loepp for their care, compassion and support.
Thank you Mom, for all you have done and taught us. We were blessed to know you, to share in your life. Your day of true peace has finally arrived.
The funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at Douglas Mennonite Church, 1517 Rothesay Street, with Interment following at Sage Creek Cemetery.
Donations may be made to Bethania Mennonite Personal Care Home or Mennonite Central Committee.
