    Dear Paschke Family:
    We were surprised and saddened to hear of Aunt Emma’s passing. She was a special aunt to me and was an inspiration with her smile and happy spirit. I’m sure she is even much happier in the lord’s presence. Our condolences to the family.

    I will be with you in thought & prayers as you lay your Mom in her final resting place & celebrate her life on Friday. I always enjoyed my visits with her in past & recently in Kelowna. I appreciated her love & caring & her advice. I remember many happy family times in past with the Paschke’s back in Morris, MB. I admired your Mom for managing the implement business along with all the other things she did. She was a very smart woman. Miss her and grieve your loss even though you know she’s in Heaven with Jesus & without any pain.

  • Brian Donst says:

    Dear Paschke family: My sympathy at Aunt Emma’s passing. The picture you have provided for the notice is such a wonderful reminder of the brightness and liveliness of her spirit and her faith. I’m sure you find comfort and peace in knowing that even now she is received into the glory and light of her Lord.

  • Joyce Donst says:

    Dear Paschke family: Sincere sympathy to your family at the passing of your mother and grandmother. I first met Emma, (a cousin of my late husband, Clarence),in Morris, and then several times over the years at her homes in Kelowna. What a gracious lady! I especially appreciated the knowledge that she had about the genealogy of the Donst family. Remembering… When someone you know dies, you don’t get over it by forgetting; you get through it by remembering. No person is ever truly gone once they have been in our lives and loved us, as we have loved them.
