Martha Klassen

(nee Zacharias)

At the amazing age of 90 years, Martha Klassen went to be with Jesus.  Martha died peacefully on Wednesday, November 24th at Salem Home.  Services for Martha Klassen will be held on Monday, November 29th at 2:00 pm, in Roseisle EM Church with an interment at the Roseisle Cemetery.

Mom was born in Rhineland County on August 9, 1920 to Johann & Maria Zacharias. She grew up in the Rosenfeld area going to Reichenbach School. As a youth Mom enjoyed playing sports such as baseball and tennis. At the early age of 15 Mom experienced the tragic death of her Dad, which added responsibilities of work around the farm and chores around the home. As a teenager Mom gave her life to the Lord and was baptized.  Mom met and was courted by John Klassen and after 9 months of romance they were married on September 18th, 1941. After their marriage they  moved to Morden, here they started their family. Later Mom & Dad moved to Rosenfeld & then in 1955 they moved to Roseisle where they farmed and raised their children. When they moved to Roseisle Mom & Dad were instrumental in organizing the Roseisle EM Church.

Times were busy and hard, there was always much to do with farming and taking care of 5 children. Mom always made our home a happy and safe place with lots of good food. She enjoyed sewing and made most of our clothes, making sure we always looked good.  When Dad became sick we no longer farmed and Mom went to work outside the home, first at Gemini Fashions, where she sewed in zippers because of her great sewing skills and then at Ed’s Tire as the chef. When they sold the farm Mom and Dad moved to Graysville where they spent their retirement times together.

Mom volunteered at the MCC store and went fishing and camping with Dad even though it was not her favorite thing to do. She loved spending time with her family and did whatever would bring us all together. Mom lived her life committed and trusting in her Savior, Jesus. She was always praying for others and for her family. We always knew our Mom’s prayers went before us. Teaching Sunday School was a way Mom ministered in her church. When there was no place of quiet or peace she would go to the car lock the doors and prepare her Sunday School lesson. Giving to missions and praying for the families was something Mom did personally. She always found a specific family and sent letters and monies to support them.  Her life was an example of Jesus here on earth. No matter where she was or what she was doing somehow she would share about the Jesus that was in her life.

Mom was predeceased by her husband John, her daughter Carolyn, her grandson Jason and her great grandson Robert, by her sisters Marie, Helen and Anne, her brother Bernard.

She is survived by her children Marvin, wife Helen; Dennis, wife Marion; Wayne, wife Mathilda; Rhonda, husband Mark; Wes, wife Brenda; 25 Grandchildren, 18 Great Grandchildren and 1 Great Great Granddaughter, by her brothers Dave and Ed and sister Ruth.

Mom you will be greatly missed by your family, but we know you are in such a wonderful place. We say good bye to you today on this earth, but we know we will meet you again in the future in heaven.

“You are so beautiful, so perfect and you can walk”
