Menno accepted Jesus as Saviour in his youth. He met Lottie at Main Centre (Sask.) High School. After farming 5 years, in 1957, Menno attended teacher’s college in Moose Jaw, Sask. He taught at Rockside, then Main Centre Public School, where he became principal. He was principal of Herbert (Sask.) Elementary, until his retirement in 1987. Menno was known for his sense of humour, particularly at school events. Menno also served Herbert’s town council, and the credit union, hospital and Ferry Regional Park boards. In retirement, Menno continued farming the Siemens homestead with joy. He liked farm auction sales. Winters, Menno and Lottie enjoyed living among family in Abbotsford, B.C. In 1999, they lost daughter Valerie and daughter-in-law Crystal to cancer, but with a strong trust in God’s love and sovereignty, the family grew stronger.
