Obituary of Theresia Wascher
WASCHER, Theresia (Jekel)
92 years, went home to be with her Lord and Saviour on Wednesday, August 26 at the Leamington Mennonite Home, suddenly and peacefully following her dear sister Eva. Beloved wife of the late John (2003), Loving mother of Helmut and Cathy Wascher, John and Mora Wascher, Louise and Karl Fleisch, David and Tamara Wascher. Cherished Oma to 11 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. Dear sister of the late Eva and Henry Reidl, John Jekel (Inge), Katie Medel (Ernie). Dear sister in law to Elizabeth Reidl (the late Steve), and the late Eva and Henry Walter. She will be missed by many nieces, nephews and by her friends. We thank our God for the staff at the Leamington Mennonite Home who provided such tender loving care for many years, even under the added pressures of our current pandemic. We also thank the staff at Sun Parlor Home for their compassionate care during her short stay there last year. Advice from our wise and loving mother, even in the last year of her life in a nursing home, and some of it still spoken on the morning of her “going home”: Trust and obey our Lord, pray with thanksgiving, pray for strength to accept whatever God gives you, and always do your best. In our mother’s final words to her family and friends, just an hour or two before her sudden unexpected departure, with her engaging smile “I love you all”.
A private family celebration of Theresia’s life will be held with interment at Evergreen Memorial Park Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations made by cheque to the Leamington Mennonite Home would be appreciated. Share words of comfort or make an online donation at www.reidfuneralhome.ca
