Deaths-Lydia-Regehr-DuerksenLydia was baptized in the sand pit in Ste. Anne, Man. Because of her love for children, she courageously went to college at age 57 to earn her Early Childhood Education certificate. She then worked in preschool education until retirement. Lydia’s steadfast faith in Christ sustained her through many struggles. Before she died in Vancouver, her last words to her children were “But God takes precedence.”
