    History Obituary - Our mother, Mrs. Agnes Friesen Reimer was born Jan 16, 1874 in South Russia. She immigrated to Jefferson County, Nebraska, and then to Meade, Kansas in 1907. She passed away to be with the Lord on June 13, 1951 at the age of 77 years, 4 months, and 28 days, after a prolonged illness brought about by cancer. She accepted Christ as her personal Saviour at the age of 17 and was baptized by Elder Abram L. Friesen and accepted into the Mennonite Church. On January 17, 1892 she was united in marriage to Klaas B. Reimer, who preceded her in death after sharing joys and sorrows for 39 years, 2 months, and 3 days.
    Our mother was blessed with good health until Aug 15, 1947 when gall ailment set in. On March 1, 1950 she was taken to Oklahoma City, where she received radium treatments for cancer. She remained there for 10 days but suffered severe pains for several weeks thereafter. After a few months, however, we were happy to see that her condition had improved so much that she was able to attend the church services she loved, and friends and loved ones could be visited again. Since Dec 1950, she was almost completely confined to her home due to recurring illness, and was compelled to spend the last 8 days upon her bed. During this time of illness she had many visitors who were often impressed by her resigned will and her uncomplaining spirit. She put her trust in her Saviour and claimed God's promises for her life and for her death. Yes, she found great pleasure in qoting these promises in the German language, such as: "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today, and forever," "Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." She said that her Lord would lead her and not expect her to bear more than she was able to bear by His grace. Her prayer-life has also been a great inspiration to us. Truly, "Mother's prayers shall follow us." He blessed her and was very gracious to her during her illness in allowing her to feel but little pain. She was very tired, however, and was glad to go home to her Saviour and passed away quietly 11:06 a.m. on Wed., June 13 to be with the Lord where there is fullness of joy.
    Preceding her in death were her husband, our father, Klaas B. Reimer, who passed away on March 20, 1931; five children, Sara (Mrs. Peter L. Classen); Kathryn; David; Pete; and Anna; seven grandchildren and one great grandchild; six brothers and three sisters. She is survived by seven children: Mary (Mrs. John L. Classen of Hillsboro); Jacob, Cornelius, Elizabeth, Agnes (Mrs. Henry L. Friesen of Hillsboro), Helen, and Margaret (Mrs. Cornie Siemens), all of Meade; 59 grand and 10 great-grandchildren. Two brothers: Abe J. and John J. Friesen (both of Meade) and a host of relatives and families.
    Although the sorrow that comes from seperation has been keenly felt and we will all miss her sorely, there has been a deep sense of peace and consolation to know that victory complete is hers in Christ Jesus.
