Helen Neudorf, age 81, of Swift Current and formerly of the Wymark District, passed away on Wednesday, February 9, 2022 at the Cypress Regional Hospital, Swift Current, SK.
Helen Neudorf was born August 1, 1940 to John O. & Sarah (Neufeld) Fehr on the family farm, three miles west of Wymark, SK. There, she grew up with her four brothers and four sisters, doing all the work and chores that comes with life on a farm.
On June 24, 1961 Helen married Peter Henry Neudorf at the First United Church in Swift Current. Together, they raised four children — Brent, Brian, Joanne, and Blake — on their farm in the Wymark District. Helen loved being a homemaker and farm wife, there was always much to do and she tackled each task with ease and determination. She had a large garden and enjoyed growing her own produce, especially raspberries and chokecherries, and the family never missed a meal. Sometimes meals had to be mobile during seeding and harvest, and her kids remember her barbecuing out in the field.
Helen loved her family — immediate and extended — and was the glue that held many families together, not just her own. She loved to laugh and visit with people, especially her sisters. She also liked to grow and tend her flowers, knit, crochet, and sew — a talent that she put to good use.
Helen is survived by her husband of 60 years, Peter Neudorf; her children, Brent (Natalie) Neudorf, Brian (Patti) Neudorf, Joanne (Dave) Feick, and Blake (Colette) Neudorf; her grandchildren, Shawn, Reed, and Megan Neudorf, Mikayla and Clayton Neudorf, Carissa (Eric) Boschman (nee Feick), Jason (Talia Homenuik) Feick, and Scott Feick, and Nicholas, Benjamin, and Lucas Neudorf; her siblings, Sue (Larry) Grose, Marion (Harvey) Engel, and Pete (Norma) Fehr; and by numerous nieces and nephews.
