Margeret Unger, # 113050347
I just completed a major cemetery research project in Oregon and an now purging research documents. On one of the obituary photocopies I gathered was an obituary for Elizabeth N. Rempel. In her obituary she lists a sister, Margaret Unger, Steinbach, Canada. Just in case this is the right person, here is a summary of the obituary information. Because of U.S. Copyright laws, I cannot include an exact copy of the obituary:

Obituary: The Statesman Journal (Salem, Oregon, USA) published 21 Dec 1982
Source: microfilm, Salem Public Library, Salem, Oregon
Elizabeth N. Rempel died in Dallas, Oregon, USA at age 67. She was born in Meade, Kansas. She was a member of the Dallas Evangelical Mennonnite Brethren Church. Survivors: husband, Ben; sons Harold and LeRoy; daughters Janice Janke, Pauline Aufrecht, Bernice Peterson and Lucille Eby; sisters Margaret Unger ("Steinbach, Canada"), Nettie Wiebe; brothers Ben Classen and John Classen. Services at Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Church. Burial at Dallas Cemetery (Dallas, Oregon, USA). Arrangements by Dallas Mortuary. The obituary also provides information about where each of the survivors live.

Caroline Eck Toews
I want to thank you for creating a site for Peter C. Toews who is buried in the Steinbach Pioneer Cemetery #107084933. I'm looking for the burial of his wife who is my great Aunt Caroline Eck Toews. Her obituary states the burial is in the Steinbach Cemetery. However,I do not find her listed on find-a-grave in the Steinbach Pioneer Cemetery. She was born November 16,1880 and died Sept.30,1956. I live in the States, therefore, I can't visit the cemetery to make a search. Do you have access to the Steinbach Pioneer Cemetery directory? I would appreciate any suggestion you might have to help me find Caroline's grave. Thanks. B. Smith

RE: Johann Staerk
My great grandfather, Johann Staerk lived in Hanover, Man. Now, my father told me he was in Steinbach, Man. Since I have accessed copies of the Steinbach Carillon, I have come to realize there are different areas in Steinbach. Various articles about the Staerk/Stark/Sterk have been printed under the Frieden...? On the Steinbach map, I noticed a Hanover Road. Is this helpful, at all. CAVM. The Seeker.
PS. Mathilda Staerk Hollender was Johann and Louise Staerk's oldest daughter. She died in 1919 of the Spanish Flu. The other person missing is Louise Zech Staerk, my great grandmother. She was born in Russian Poland, July 1863 and died in June 1922. Thankyou very much for helping me.

Johann Staerk died between 1942-1952. He was buried by his second wife: Amaelia Rosenthal Staerk.

RE: Lydia Stark
Greetings: Leopold Stark (1896-1963) is in the exact same cemetery as Lydia Stark. Her grave from the road where we entered, was in the front while his grave marker was upright, "like a sore thumb" sticking up to the sky. It must have been between 3 feet to 4 feet tall. It was placed there by Eva Wiebe Stark, his second wife, married in 1958-1959. The monument was almost directly inline with Lydia's but much further back, against some bushes. Remember, this was in Sept/Oct of 1977. Thankyou! Barney Kehler! The Seeker.

Thankyou for photographing my Oma's photo of her head stone. It is good to connect with family even if it involves distance and time. Thankyou again! The Seeker.

Barney Kehler:

Thankyou for finding the correct cemetery. Miles from a place and many years have passed since 1977. I had looked on a Steinbach map, but it is not near a Lutheran church, I could see no alternative but to drive there and pester the administrators myself.
Thankyou for the new info. The Seeker.

Thank you for letting me know that his memorial is probably in the wrong cemetery.

I have taken his memorial out of that cemetery. I very much appreciate your information!

Best wishes,

RE: Leopold Stark/ Lydia Gross Stark

I noticed that you are a Kehler- are you related to any Kehler that grew up in the Dauphin area, especially Ashern, Manitoba? My father's cousin Joyce Kehler just died in April 2013, are you related to any of them? The Seeker.

Leopold Stark/ Lydia Gross Stark
Thankyou for the e-mail re: my grandparents. However, I know for a fact that these two sites exist. They were buried in the same cemetery b/c when I travelled with my Uncle Alex in 1977 in the Fall months of September/October I seen Leopold Stark/Staerk buried in the cemetery. It was huge: it stuck up to the sky at least 3-4 feet. Most of the grave markers laid flat,but Opa Stark, his grave marker was wide and quite high.

Regarding the marker for Lydia Stark, there was nothing but a small cylinder marker with a number on it. The man at the cemetery came from his house where he was having supper and spent 1/2 hour searching for the site. He found it and I took a picture for my father. My father was very disturbed about this. He organized a headstone for his mother. The person that had it installed was Gertrude Stark, his sister. Auntie Gert made sure it was placed on the right spot. So, I know for a fact these headstones exist. I always believed they were in the Pioneer Cemetery. Thankyou! Lydia Stark May 23, 1956 and Leopold Stark October 23, 1963. The Seeker.

RE: Valley View Memorial Gardens
Just put the plot number on the memorial, it will show up on the request then.

I hope to go out in mid=May to visit my Grandmother & Aunts gravesites.

RE: Valley View Memorial Gardens
Yes, this is a very large cemetery, I will need the plot number.

RE: Valley View Memorial Gardens
I don't usually get there when the office is open, so this is not really an option for me. Hopefully, there is someone else that can get there during office hours.

Brad, glad I could help. I also added a photo for Aaron Ratzlaff. He was close by and I hoped maybe he was also a relative. donna barnett

I found your posting for the Niverville Cemetery in Hanover, Maitoba. Do you have anyway of determing other burials in that cemetery. I am looking for Frederich and Rose Tiefenbach. Rose died in Tache and Fred in Niverville between 1910-1920. I am trying to locate their burial location so I can post them on find-a-grave.
