Tribute

Our dear mother, Mary Bergen, passed away peacefully into the presence of her Lord on April 26, 2015.  She was born on June 2, 1926 in the Ukraine and came to Canada in 1947.  After surviving the war, homelessness and refugee camps, she and her husband, John, settled in Abbotsford BC where they operated a farm for many years on Simpson Road. She was a founding member of the Eben Ezer Mennonite church and served her church and the community for many years.

She is remembered with love by her 5 children, Menno (June) Bergen, Kathy (Zeke) Doerksen and their daughter Jennifer (Joel) Stock and  Gavin, age 4, Oma’s only great grandchild,  Mary Bergen and her children Michael and Rosemary, Walter (Janet) Bergen and their daughters Rachel and Lara, Alvin Bergen  and his children Jessica and Joel. Also remembered by her 2 brothers John (Lorena) Redekop, Peter (Helen) Redekop, sister-in-law Hilda Redekop and sister-in-law Aganeta Bergen.

 She was predeceased by her husband John in 1993, her granddaughter Kristin Doerksen, her brother Jake Redekop and her parents Jacob and Maria Redekop.

Visitation will be on Sunday, May 3 at Eben Ezer church on Windsor Rd. from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Graveside service will be Monday, May 4 at Maclure Road Cemetery at 11:30 a.m. with a service of remembrance at 1:00 in the gym at Eben Ezer church.

From: Elly Janzen
Relation: aunt

I loved Aunt Mary s story telling and appreciated all the details of life in the old days. I also remember being amazed how she could raise my cousins, organize the house and run the farm and was so matter of fact about all of it – a hard working, smart woman who loved her family. Love to all my cousins and their families, Elly Janzen
