Deaths-Liese-FriesenLiese’s father was conscripted into the Russian army; she was 3 before she saw him for the first time. As she grew, she felt God speaking to her. With her parents’ help, she asked Jesus into her heart. In 1929, her family fled to Germany, then moved to Stolz Plateau, Brazil, where they worked hard to survive. Liese worked as a seamstress for Hering Textile Company in Blumenau, where she met Heinrich. In 1948, they moved to Curitiba and worked in an orphanage. They farmed in Bagé. Because their children’s future didn’t look promising, Liese and Heinrich immigrated to Vancouver in 1969. Liese became a housekeeper, loved and trusted by the families she served. After retiring to Abbotsford, B.C., Liese loved to garden, crochet and spend time with grandchildren. After Heinrich’s death, she volunteered at the MCC store. At 90, Liese moved to Tabor Home. She prayed tirelessly for her family to follow God. Liese’s final 5 years were difficult; though she was unaware, her family was still blessed by their regular visits with her.
