Abram Wolff died July 4, 2009. He was born Feb. 22, 1925 in Alexanderfeld, Zagradovka, Russia to Jakob and Elisabeth Wolff. The family fled to Moscow in 1929, and received permission to go to Germany. From there they travelled to Paraguay in 1930. Abram remembered tough times in the Paraguayan Chaco before the family moved to Friesland in East Paraguay, where the climate was more pleasant. Abram asked Jesus into his heart at 25 and was baptized, joining the local MB church. In 1952, he married Maria Gossen. They farmed in Paraguay 15 years. In 1967, Abram moved to Vancouver where he framed houses and worked in a door factory. Later they moved to Abbotsford to operate their own laundromat. They joined Clearbrook MB Church, sang in German choir, and served as deacons. Abram enjoyed visiting with people and his door was always open to others. His smile and jokes will be missed. Predeceased by Maria in 2007; Abram is mourned by Hugo (Ruth), Erika (Ed) Wiens, Walter (Warna), Monika (Harmut) Penner, Irene Regher; 13 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren.
