Obituary for Jennie Heft

Jennie Kelm was born Eugenja Heft in Lublin, Poland, in 1902. She was married to Daniel Kelm, son of Julius Kelm and Martha Kirsch. I found the OCRed text of her obituary in the Winnipeg Free Press, dated March 24, 1995. The following is an excerpt.

“Jennie Kelm, aged 72 years, passed away at the Seven Oaks Hospital on March 21, 1995.

She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Daniel: two daughters, Sandra (Bruce) Mellon, Eleanor (Ted) Laidlaw; her son Daniel W. (Diana) Kelm; eight grandchildren, Rachel, Ester, Aaron, Clinton, Rebecca, David, James and Elaine; one great-granddaughter Clarissa […]

Jennie was confirmed in Zion Lutheran Church where she had been a lifelong member. For 20 years, Jennie was employed in the luggage department at The Bay. Jennie was a very devoted wife and mother whose pride and joy were her children and grandchildren. She loved to prepare meals and go berry picking…”
