Catharina Reimer

November 21, 1921 — September 25, 2011

Catharina Peters Reimer passed away peacefully at the age of 89 at Newton Medical Center Sunday morning, September 25, 2011.

Tina was born in Greenland, Manitoba, Canada, on November 21, 1921, to Jacob H. and Maria Wieler Peters. She was the second of ten children. She attended a local grade school through grade 8 as often as she was able, when not needed at home to help with the younger children. She accepted the Lord in her teens and was baptized and joined the EMB Church in Steinbach, Manitoba. She married Elmer Isaac Reimer on September 26, 1943. One child, David Elmer Reimer, was born to the union.

The family moved to Omaha, Nebraska, in 1947 to attend Grace Bible Institute (now Grace University) to prepare for pastoral and evangelistic ministry. They pastored churches in Randville, Michigan; Jansen, Nebraska; Springfield, South Dakota; Carter, South Dakota; and Burns, Kansas. They were also engaged in extensive Bible camp work throughout the Midwest and Canada, necessitating much travel.

Tina is survived by her husband, Elmer; son David (and Marilyn) Reimer; sisters Annie (Mrs. Albert) Reimer of Steinbach, Manitoba, Aurelia (Mrs. Menno) Kroeker of Riverton, Manitoba, Marie (Mrs. Art) Neufeld of Virden, Manitoba, and Ellen and Ed Penner of Kola, Manitoba; brothers Jac (and Rose) Peters, Ert (and Shirley) Peters, and Gilbert (and Anne) Peters of Steinbach, Manitoba; three grandchildren (Kristi, Greg, and Jeff Reimer), and four great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, infant brother Edmer, and brother Henry.

Services will be held Thursday, September 29, at 10:30 a.m. at Grace Community Church of Newton, followed by a 2:30 burial at the First Mennonite Church cemetery in Burns, Kansas.

Memorials may be designated to the Low German ministry of the Evangelical Free Church of Canada Missions (checks may be made out to EFCCM).
