Jacob Janzen

,

Deaths-Jacob-JanzenJacob and Velma built up the Janzen farm near Dalmeny for more than half a century. The family treasures memories of Jacob rising early to tend the animals, working his fields with teams of horses, tractors and combines. Jacob taught his children to play baseball, predict thunderstorms, and identify birds and constellations. He composed songs and verses, played hymns on harmonica and yodelled from the fields on summer nights.
