Tina (Kay) Balzer

,

Deaths-Tina-BalzerTina’s family immigrated to Canada in 1926, settling in Gnadental, Man. Her father’s death created hardship and the older siblings went to work. Tina worked in the Valley Room (restaurant) at Eaton’s, Winnipeg, for 23 years until her retirement. She loved Christmas Eve when family gathered and she joyously served them. At North Kildonan MB Church, Winnipeg, Tina sang in the choir and mailed bulletins to members at Bible school or on mission. She enjoyed visiting her nephew in Pasadena, Cal., and her niece in Kelowna, B.C., and trips with her sisters to Palm Springs, Cal. Tina spent the last 2 years in Bethania Personal Care Home, Winnipeg, where she looked forward to her sister Helena’s faithful visits. Tina will be remembered for her bright spirit.
