ERICA VOTH Peacefully, on March 15, 2008 surrounded by her family, Erica Voth (nee Schroeder) went to be with her precious Saviour. Born in Rosenthal, Russia on January 11, 1921, to Anna and Johann Schroeder she immigrated to Manitoba in 1923. She spent her childhood in Niverville, Winnipeg, and Morris. As a young teenager she moved to Winnipeg to work. There her brother John introduced her to Henry Voth. They fell in love and were married in April 1943. Together they served God in ministry in British Columbia, Ontario and Manitoba. After Henry died in 1981 she continued ministering at her church, volunteering at Mennonite Central Committee and the Manitoba Mennonite Brethren archives. She generously gave herself to her relationships with her family and her friends. She will be missed by daughters, Erica (Vic) Schmidt, Elizabeth (Herb) Lodde, Ellen (Gerald) Neufeld, and Sharon (Carl) Epp; 10 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; brother John (Ruth) Schroeder and sister Agatha Martens.
