Obituary

Abram (Abe) Warkentin passed away on June 10, 2021 at Watrous District Health Complex at the age of 90 years.
Abe was born at his parent’s home near Nokomis. He attended Flanderdale School until 1945 when his family moved to the farm near Watrous where he still resided. He continued his schooling in Watrous and graduated in 1949.
In June 1966, he married Lillian Harding from Venn, SK. They would have celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary on June 30.
Abe was a farmer, but also did many other jobs during the winter. He worked in Safeway in Winnipeg in the produce department, loaded railway cars, drove school bus and did custom land clearing with his D7 Cat bulldozer. Later he did custom combining.
He served on the RM of Morris council for 7 years as councillor and 6 years as the Reeve. He served on many boards during this time such as Manitou Lodge Board, Watrous Union Hospital Board, and the Living Sky Health Board. He also served on the Rural Economic Development Association.
He was predeceased by his parents Abram & Tina Warkentin, sister Elizabeth Neufeld, brother-in-law John Neufeld, brother Ernest, nephew Tim Neufeld, brothers-in-law Raymond Harding and Joe Zimmerman.
He is survived by his wife Lillian, his children, Karen Dalton (Andy), Susan Vanthuyne (Derek), Chris Warkentin (Tara Hayden) and Ross Warkentin. His grandchildren, Logan Hayden, Jared Vanthuyne (Larissa Wenzel), Cole Vanthuyne, Ayva Warkentin and Lauren Dalton, his brother Herman Warkentin (Joyce) and many nephews, nieces and cousins.
We will miss his wisdom and his hearty laugh.
Donations in his memory may be made to Manitou Lodge Recreation Department.

Stan so enjoyed working with Abe … they laughed a lot. The girls often comment about Abe and his laugh. He was so kind to them and they thought he was such a great guy. Knowing Abe is a gift that we will cherish always and when we think of him we will tell an Abe story and smile. Our sincere sympathy Pat Stacey, Rana and Margo
