Mom was born in Rosenfeld, Manitoba on August 11, 1927 to John and Sara Thiessen.

Together they farmed for more than 60 years in the Stuartburn area. Mom has always enjoyed serving others through volunteering at Church, MCC, quilting, knitting for the Children’s Hospital and the Christmas shoeboxes program and numerous other ways.
