Esther Ruth Kroeker With heavy hearts we, the family, announce the peaceful, but sudden passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Monday, January 1, 2007 at Bethesda Hospital in Steinbach, MB.

She was predeceased by her parents John and Margaret Letkeman, one son Edward Roy on January 1, 1961 and by two brothers Johnny and Ron. Mom loved seeing her family, especially her grandchildren, and great grandchildren to whom she was very generous. She was always very accepting of new family members as they joined the Kroeker family. We know that mom is at peace with Jesus. Thanks to the staff at Bethesda Hospital, who looked after mom during her week long stay in the hospital.
