It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our dear mom, nana, and sister Marian Friesen, age 84, on Monday January 3, 2022 at her residence.
She was predeceased by her parents Johan and Maria, 4 brothers and one sister.
Marian will be lovingly remembered by her family; Pam (Orville) Giesbrecht, their son Matthew; Jackie Storry (Robb), children Tyler (Sara), and Phaedra; Brenda Loewen, her son Joseph; Cyndi (Rob) Adams children Noah and Jordan; sister Esther Kovak, Frieda (Dennis) Banman, brother Jake (Alvera) Hiebert, as well as numerous extended family and friends.
Marian was born near New Bothwell and raised on the family farm, where she learned to work hard and her work ethic never wavered throughout her life. If mom put her mind to something you would be sure that she would excel. No task was too difficult for her to tackle. She was well known for her baking, cooking, sewing, and later on in life she learned to navigate her way around the internet fluently. Mom was a tenacious woman with an amazing sense of humor.
Mom was a woman of strong faith and lived her life with the lasting faith that ”the Lord will help you weather the storm.”
Her family, especially her grandchildren brought great joy to her life. She was known to email and facetime with them whenever the opportunity presented itself. Mom will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.
The family would like to extend their appreciation to the local attending RCMP, the paramedics and the staff at Crossings Funeral Care for the care and compassion shown to the family.
Cremation will take place and a private family celebration of life will be planned for a later date.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice in Marian's memory.
