Susie Krahn

November 24, 1936 — November 26, 2020

Susie Krahn, age 84, passed away peacefully on November 26, 2020. at the Menno Home in Grunthal, Manitoba.  She was predeceased by her husband Abe in May of this year.  While saddened by her passing, we celebrate that she is in heaven where suffering and sadness are no more.

Susie was born in Neuhorst, Mexico where she lived until the age of 16. She then moved with her family to Canada and settled near Winkler, Manitoba where she later met and married Abe Krahn. They settled in Winnipeg, Manitoba and had 5 children.

Mom was a gentle, loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She loved her family as no one else could and spending time with her kids and grandkids brought her the most joy.  Whether it be the large bustling family gatherings in their home, or camping trips with the whole family, I am sure that every one of us recalls all the little things she did to make it special, her strong hugs and big smile.

Before her health started to decline Mom always liked to keep busy doing something, whether cleaning, flower gardening, cooking, sewing or her favorite past time, quilting. Mom lovingly stitched quilts and lap blankets for each of her kids and grandkids just as she stitched a lifetime of love into each of our hearts.

Mom will be lovingly remembered by her children Clarence Krahn (Ingrid), Sandra Esau (Vern), Karen Unrau (Randy), Debbie Esau (Sheldon), and Patti Unger (Wayne). Mom leaves behind 18 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, six sisters and three brothers. She is predeceased by her husband Abe, her sister Helen and her husband Henry, and grandson-in-law Colten Plett.

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorry, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain."  Revelation 21:4
