Deaths-Margaret-Neufeld-WedelMargaret’s family immigrated to Canada in 1926, settling in Winkler, Man. She attended school in Manitou, a difficult experience since she knew no English. The family moved to B.C. in 1943. She worked to support the family, clearing land to grow berries. She lost her father in 1949. Margaret and Henry Neufeld raised 5 children on the farm, which she sold 2 years after his death. Following 10 years of widowhood, Margaret married Henry Wedel. After his death, she moved to a condo in Abbotsford, B.C., and again joined Clearbrook MB Church. In retirement, Margaret volunteered for MCC, crafted quilts, and read books. She moved so she could walk to services. When health declined, she entered assisted living in Vernon, B.C., near her children.
