She loved reading,swimming,gardening, playing bridge and scrabble, listening to classical music and jazz, and taking in a play. She also volunteered at the MCC in Abbotsford where she combined her love of books and her concern for others in need. Irma loved the beauty of nature and its power to inspire. She was the first to jump into a freezing cold lake and shout that we should join her. She also taught us that a proper picnic must include hot strong coffee served in the best china cups one has!Irma Neufeld lived her life graciously and died peacefully. We commit her spirit to the Lord.

From: Neil Neufeld
Relation: Nephew

Time can seem so long in our moments but so short in our lives. Knowing that we are all in God’s hands from before we start this journey until we get to go home, hopefully provides comfort; a ‘see you later’ rather than ‘goodbye’.
May His comfort surround all who were blessed to have been close to her heart
