1943 – 2021
Sara Elias of Winkler, MB formerly of Blumenfeld passed away peacefully at Salem Home at the age of 78 on Friday April 23, 2021.
On January 24, 1943, she was born to Peter and Sarah Elias at Bethel Hospital in Winkler. She grew up in Blumenfeld across the street from the school which she attended. Playing dolls and paper dolls was a favorite past time in her childhood. As an adult, she enjoyed many hobbies including puzzling, gardening, playing games with friends and spending time with her sisters. Her nieces and nephews were very special to her and she developed meaningful and lasting relationships with many of them. Aunt Sara was baptized on June 4, 1963. Her faith in our Lord Jesus was very apparent in her day-to-day living. She was an example to her family and anyone who knew her. Aunt Sara worked at Salem Home for many years which also brought many new friends into her life.
She was a quiet, independent and content person which was evident with the many changes she had to make in the last years regarding her health. 2 Corinthians 4:17 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” was one of the verses she would find comfort in when life was not always easy. Arthritis and Mylar Dysplasia were her biggest challenges in the last several years.
She is survived by one brother, several sisters-in-law, many nieces, nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her parents, three sisters and eight brothers.
Private funeral service on Wednesday April 28, 2021 at Wiebe Funeral Home, Winkler with interment at the Blumenfeld Cemetery. A special thank you to the Salem Home staff for the care they provided to her as well as to Wiebe Funeral Home of Winkler for their kind service.
