Charlotte Helen (Lepp) Klassen

,

Charlotte accepted Jesus as Saviour at Bible camp. She attended Bethany Bible Institute, Hepburn, Sask., where she met John, with whom she would share 48 years. After growing up in St. Catharines, Charlotte found marrying a farmer a big adjustment. Charlotte and John farmed in Beechy, Sask., until 1988. Her career included working at the St. Catharines land titles office, MCC Canada, Manitoba Department of Education, Manitoba Department of Transportation, and Beechy (Sask.) Union Hospital as medical records clerk. When John became pastor of Glenbush (Sask.) MB Church, Charlotte supported him and kept busy making greeting cards. She had cancer in 1994, 2015 and 2016, suffering pain and seizures. Her final 9 months were in palliative care at Spiritwood (Sask.) and District Health Complex.
