Zacharias Henry - orig ohotoAugust 10, 1933 – February 11, 2014

On Tuesday, February 11, 2014, Henry Zacharias of Carman, MB (formerly of Elm Creek, MB) passed away at the Carman Hospital with his family at his side.

Henry is survived by his wife of 53 years, Dora along with his children – Lorne (Colleen) and their children Julie, Brad & Luke; Sharon (Bert) Friesen and their children Derek (Bobbi) and great grandchild Jagger, Teresa (Andrew) Kippen and great grandchildren Owen and Mason & Krystin (Brent) Vandersluis; Don (Crystal) and their children Dustyn & Cierra.

Henry was born on the family farm in the Mason District south of Morden and was baptized at the Glencross Church. He worked on the family farm and struck out on his own to farm at Miami and then purchased a farm near Elm Creek which became his home for many years. Henry and Dora were married on September 11, 1960 and raised their family there.

While farming, Henry worked at a variety of jobs including trucking, tire repair, farm labour, sales, deliveries, railway and others. His work took the family to Winnipeg for several years, but the farm at Elm Creek was always “home”. In retirement Henry and Dora moved briefly to Morden, but then moved back to the village of Elm Creek and eventually to a condo at Carman.

Henry and Dora always enjoyed the seasonal campsite at Stephenfield and the fishing, cooking and visiting that came along with this recreation. Many special relationships were developed around the campfire and in the fishing boat.

A family funeral service was held, with interment at the Elm Creek Cemetery. His grandchildren were very special to him and they surrounded him as pallbearers.

The family wishes to express their gratitude to friends and family along with sincere appreciation for the care he received from the staff at the Health Science Centre in Winnipeg along with the entire staff at the Carman Hospital. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Carman Memorial Hospital Palliative Care Program.
