  • Name Peter D. REIMER 
    Born 3 Jan 1899 
    Gender Male 
    Health Died of cancer at age 56. 
    History Grew up in Landmark (Prairie Rose). Did custom threshing and brush clearing as a young man. Then, with $65 in his pocket, P.D. started a bargain store in Steinbach which he operated for many years. Together with his brother-in-law J.T. Loewen, they tried a Case tractor dealership but the venture failed for lack of customers during the rough 30s. The bargain store was a steady source of modest income and that, together with sales of raspberries from a large garden provided sufficient income to maintain a large family. He was handsome with a twinkle in his eyes. Proud of his children, brought them surprises. Loved music, sang in the church choir for 20 years. Received assurance of salvation while in Chicago visiting the Pacific Garden Mission. A favorite song was "Sing the Wond'rous Love of Jesus".
