June 2, 1924 – December 13, 2021
Peter, beloved husband of the late Amelia Guenther, passed away peacefully in his sleep at Salem Personal Care Home in Winkler, MB on Monday December 13, 2021.
He leaves to mourn his five children: Sharon (Carl), Wayne (Esther), Marilyn (Archie), Murray (Ivy), Glenn, and 15 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren and their families. Peter is survived by one sister, Margaret, one brother, David along with a number of brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. He was predeceased by his parents, Abram and Helena Guenther, four brothers and three sisters.
Peter and Amelia were married in Cartwright in March of 1946. They lived briefly near Mather before moving to Snowflake and farming there for 44 years, while raising their five children. Peter also enjoyed his 22 years of service as a councillor for Louise Municipality. Dad made a decision to follow Jesus as a young married man and his Christian commitment was an example not only to us as his children, but also to the greater community. In 1991, Dad and Mom moved off the farm and retired to Crystal City. After Mom’s passing in 2003, Dad continued to live in Crystal City a few more years, eventually moving to a condo in Morden in 2007. His last move was to Salem Personal Care Home in 2015.
A private funeral service with interment at the Crystal City Cemetery. The family would like to acknowledge the exceptional care Dad received from all the staff at Salem Home. A Bible verse that has special meaning for our family is Joshua 24:15: “As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.”
