Catharina Peters Reimer passed away peacefully at the age of 89 at Newton Medical Center Sunday morning (Sept. 25, 2011).
Tina was born on Nov. 21, 1921, in Greenland, Manitoba, Canada, to Jacob H. and Maria Wieler Peters. She was the second of 10 children. She attended a local grade school through grade 8 as often as she was able, and not needed at home to help with the younger children. She accepted the Lord in her teens, was baptized, and joined the EMB Church in Steinbach, Manitoba.
She married Elmer Isaac Reimer on Sept. 26, 1943. One child, David Elmer Reimer, was born to the union.
The family moved to Omaha, Neb., in 1947 to attend Grace Bible Institute (now Grace University) to prepare for pastoral and evangelistic ministry. They pastored churches in Randville, Mich.; Jansen, Neb.; Springfield, S.D.; Carter, S.D.; and Burns. They also were engaged in extensive Bible camp work throughout the Midwest and Canada, necessitating much travel.
Tina is survived by her husband, Elmer; son, David (and Marilyn) Reimer; sisters, Annie (Mrs. Albert) Reimer of Steinbach, Manitoba, Aurelia (Mrs. Menno) Kroeker of Riverton, Manitoba, Marie (Mrs. Art) Neufeld of Virden, Manitoba, and Ellen and Ed Penner of Kola, Manitoba; brothers, Jac (and Rose) Peters, Ert (and Shirley) Peters, and Gilbert (and Anne) Peters of Steinbach, Manitoba; three grandchildren (Kristi, Greg and Jeff Reimer); and four great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; infant brother, Edmer; and brother Henry.
Services will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Grace Community Church of Newton, followed by a 2:30 p.m. burial at First Mennonite Church cemetery in Burns.
Memorials may be designated to the Low German ministry of the Evangelical Free Church of Canada Missions (checks may be made out to EFCCM).
