Elisabeth and David were blessed with four children, three boys and one girl, Willi (Eva), Hans (Marina), Adolf (Herta), and Elfriede (Martin). Later in life they were again blessed with eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.  


Elisabeth passed away peacefully from heart failure on Monday, January 16, 2023, at 9:30 a.m. at Bethesda Place, Steinbach, MB, where she spent her last hours surrounded by her family as she went to meet her Saviour.
