MARY BLATZ (nee Neufeld)
On Thursday, Apr. 19, 2018, our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Mary
Blatz, age 90, of Steinbach, MB, passed away. We were very fortunate that we had the means to manage her care at home and she could die peacefully in the comfort of her own surroundings.
She is survived by her children Mariann, Allan, Larry, Jack, Barbara, Corneil and their families.
She is also survived by one brother, Pete (Tina) Neufeld, and one sister-in-law, Jessie Neufeld, as well as Dick’s family, the Blatzes, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, neighbours and, of course, all of her musical buddies that she played and sang with each week at Rest Haven and the Pat Porter Centre.
Mary was predeceased by her husband Dietrich Blatz and five of their children, Dorothy, Danny, Edwin, Dietrich and Carol. Coincidentally, Mom passed away on the one year anniversary of our sister Carol’s passing in 2017.
Although this date has been debated and changed over the years, Mary was born on Nov. 24, 1927 in Neuhorst Village to John D. and Katharina Neufeld. Mom lived a long, full life with good health and independence until January 2018 when she fell ill and could not recover.
The funeral service will be held Friday, Apr. 27 at 2 p.m. at Birchwood Funeral Chapel, 162 Hwy 52 W, Steinbach, MB, with the interment at Randolph Cemetery.
A visitation will be held on Thursday, Apr. 26 at 7 p.m. at Birchwood Funeral Chapel. A celebration of songs and stories will follow at 7:30 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Mary may be made to enVision Foundation or a charity of one’s choice. We have discovered our mother had a generous heart and supported various organizations through charitable giving.
