Elizabeth Thiessen (Klassen)

October 9, 1924 - August 11, 2015


It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Elizabeth Susie Thiessen (nee Klassen)at ARH on Tuesday Aug 11. Elizabeth was born on October 9, 1924, in Donskoj, Russia. Their family came to Canada in February 1930, eventually settling in Gem, Alberta and later in Yarrow BC. She was a prayer warrior bending God's ear daily and an active member of the choir in each of the churches she attended. She also helped reinvigorate the Ladies’ Mission Circle in the 1970’s that is still going strong today.  In her later years she volunteered at the MCC Store helping wherever there was a need. Elizabeth valued education and loved children and had a rewarding career as a teacher. Her family, whom she loved dearly, kept her busy. She enjoyed knitting, crocheting, cooking, and baking and her zwieback were a family favourite.  She was grateful for God’s faithfulness in keeping her over her 91 years and the family would like to thank the staff at ARH for her care over the past 2 weeks. Her husband Daniel predeceased her in 2009. She is survived by her three children: Carolyn (Larry) Kwiatkowski, Arlene (Vern) Penner and Gordon (Julie) Thiessen, 8 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. The funeral service will be held at Bakerview Church at 1:30 pm on Wed. Aug 19.
