Deaths-Peter-StobbePeter’s family immigrated to Canada in 1924, settling in Harding, Man. After 10 years, they moved by wagon train to Alexander, Man. At 17, Peter found peace through the forgiveness of his sins. During WWII, he served Brandon Mental Health Centre (BMHC) as a care attendant. While attending Winkler (Man.) Bible Institute, Peter met Mary. They enjoyed farming. Losing their 2-year-old was a test of faith, but Peter and Mary experienced much love and comfort knowing they would be reunited in the family of God. In 1957, they moved to Brandon, Man., where Peter earned a psychiatric nursing degree and again served BMHC. After his career in nursing and social work, he studied to become a benefit administrator for Canada Pension Plan, where he remained until his retirement. Peter and Mary had several foster children. Peter loved golfing, cross-country skiing and curling. He was always a positive role model to those around him. Volunteering for MCC, church and community events gave him pleasure.
