Obituary of Marie Neumann

Marie Neumann passed peacefully on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at the age of 98 years.  Born June 27, 1922 in Sarata, Romania to Johann and Elizabeth Allmendinger.  Marie, the youngest of three daughters grew up in a rural setting surrounded by cousins, aunts and uncles.  She spoke fondly of family vacations at the Black Sea and the excitement during the grape and fruit harvests. 

Marie’s education and language skills lead her to a tutoring position in Germany.  She met her husband while standing in an immigration line in December, 1950, and they were married in June, 1953.  They worked tirelessly together first on their farm in Frobisher, SK, then west of Moosehorn, MB until their retirement in 1983.  After their retirement both enjoyed travelling to visit with friends and relatives. Marie was an active member of the Moosehorn Seniors Club.  Marie loved nature and people.  She enjoyed watching curling and hockey.  She was a master gardener and gifted crafts woman.

Marie will be remembered for her gentle nature, sharp wit and commitment to family, community and church.  Predeceased by husband Ewald; sisters, Hilda and Lisa; and granddaughter, Megan.

Lovingly remembered by; her daughters, Krista and Alexandra (Brian); grandson, Benjamin (Romie); and by her cousins, nieces and nephews both here in Canada and Germany.  She will also be missed by her long time close friends in Moosehorn.

A celebration of Marie’s life will take place when it is safe to gather.
