Friesen, Peter John
After a lengthy illness, Peter Friesen went home to be with his Lord and Saviour in the presence of his family on October 25, 2020 at the age of 94.
Beloved husband of 63 years to Ella (nee Pankratz), Loving father of David (Barb) of Ottawa, Deanna Wiebe (Larry) of Clovis, California and Michelle Browne (David) of Lantana, Texas. Sadly missed by his grandchildren, Sonya (Alex), Alexander (Caitlyn), Brian (Christy), Doug, Kyle (Katherine), Jonathan and Kirsten as well as his great-grandchildren, Madison and Miles. He is survived by his sister, Talita Seitz of Germany, sister-in-law, Anita Rempel (Len) of Kitchener and his many nieces and nephews. Peter is predeceased by his father, Johann, mother, Agatha and sister, Ronie Heinemann.
After retirement, Peter and Ella enjoyed worshipping at Immanuel Pentecostal Church and then at the Kitchener Mennonite Brethren Church, where Peter was baptised, and where they both became members. In 2018, they moved to Ottawa to be closer to their son, David and his wife, Barb.
The family would like to extend their sincerest thanks to the staff at the Chartwell Empress Kanata, the Ruddy Shenkman Hospice, and Dr. Andrew Douglas who lovingly cared for Peter through his illness. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Mennonite Central Committee or Hospice Care Ottawa would be appreciated by the family.
