REGEHR Abram E. Abram E. Regehr, was born to Abraham and Helena Regehr on February 13, 1929 at Linden, AB. He departed this life on May 5, 2006, at Three Hills, AB at the age of 77 years. Death was caused by complications of heart failure. On December 14, 1949, he was married to me, Josephine Schartner, at Abbotsford, BC. We cherished our companionship for over fifty-six years. Our home was blessed with five sons and three daughters. Most of Dad's life was spent in the Linden area. He took over the family farm and especially enjoyed his egg hauling, making many life long friends. His many hired men became a part of our extended family. Dad was a man who never knew a stranger. In 1978 we moved to Saskatchewan. Dad gave us as a family a rich heritage, a zest for life. He was concerned for us all, that we would serve the Lord with gladness. Singing and praying as a family bound us tightly together in times of joy or sorrow. Heaven seemed closer to us all when his son-in-law Ches Ratzlaff passed away in 1999. In 2003 Dad suffered a massive heart attack. The Lord granted him another two-and-a-half years. Seventeen months ago we as a family helped settle Dad and Mom into an apartment in Linden. Dad enjoyed being back among old friends and family. It comforts our aching hearts to know that Dad is being reunited with loved ones gone before and that he is at home with his Shepherd and the Lord in whom he trusted. Funeral Service will be held Monday, May 8, 2006 at the Church of God In Christ Mennonite, Linden, AB at 10:30 a.m. Arrangements in care of SUNSET FUNERAL SERVICE, Linden, AB. Telephone: 403-546-3903.
