Tribute

Margaret Katherine Neufeld passed peacefully into the presence of “Her Lord” on January 9th, 2022, at the age of 82 years.

Margaret was born in Winkler, Manitoba on Sept 10th, 1939. She was the second of four children born to Sarah and Nic G. Neufeld. Her father was a school teacher in several one-roomed country schools in rural southern Manitoba.

After graduating high school,  Marge enjoyed a short career as a bank teller in Winkler, Manitoba. In 1960, Leonard, the man of her dreams asked her to marry him, and they were married in August of 1961. Marge then left her banking job to start a family. Marge had 4 children, Jocelyn (Brad), Chester, Charles (Noel), and Cynthia. She has 12 grandchildren including: Tyler, Joshua (Daena), Amber, Ginger (Eric), Jay, Marissa, Jesse, Marlee, Blake, Madison, Adam, and Kaden.

Her adopted by love family, include Rick & Hannah, Darren & Aiden.

Marge has one loving brother, Stan Neufeld, living in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Marge’s main commitment was her devotion to her family. She loved nothing better than to being a wife, mother, and grandmother, and enjoyed nurturing and loving on her family.

Marge had the “gift of helps” that touched many peoples lives. She took care of so many people’s children including people from the extended family, church, ministry and many other connections. She would care for these children as if they were her own making it possible for people to go on weekends away, or other important events. Marge helped those that were going through hardships by bringing pots of soup, casseroles, and goodies. She loved to greet any newcomers to the area with meals and baked goods. She always liked to welcome any new babies with a showering of gifts.

In 1975, after supporting her husband Len through a 20-year teaching career including 19 years in Manitoba and 1 year in Nova Scotia,  the whole family moved to Abbotsford area to join a Christian ministry called “Campus Crusade for Christ,” now known as “Power to Change”.  Marge’s involvement in the ministry included: ladies ministries, discipleship training, and being on 7 International Jesus Film Projects including: Mexico (4), Guatemala, Bolivia, and Cameroon.  Marge supported Len through 45 years of being on staff with the ministry.

Marge was predeceased by her parents Sarah and Nic G. Neufeld, her brother Paul Henry (infant), sister Lorretta Janzen, mother-in-law & father-in-law Mary & Jacob Neufeld, and sister-in-law Eleanor.

Marge had a 12-year struggle with Parkinson’s disease. In Spring of 2021, Marge was very ill with Covid – 19 and fought bravely and was able to return home for 6 more months. On January 1st, 2022, she suffered a paralyzing stroke and brain hemorrhage.

Marge was a beloved wife of 60 years, mother, mother-in-law, grandma, great-grandma, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, cousin & faithful friend.

Relation: Nephew

So sorry to have heard of the passing of Aunt Marge. The ‘Porridge Pot Cafe’ lost one of the two founding members. We really enjoyed the few days that we as MB Neufelds were able to spend with Aunt Marge & Uncle Leonard a few years back. Age has changed the bodies, but like a fine wine the ‘personalities’ aged much better. Aunt Marge’s desire to be a great hostess was always evident and she will be truly missed

From: Linda Buhler
Relation: I grew up in the Grossweide MB church with Marge and her family.

my condolences to Leonard and the family, May the Lord grant comfort and peace, My presence will go with you and I will give you peace.
