Memorable Manitobans: Gerhard Peter Neufeld (c1890-1968)

Educator.

Born around 1890, he was a teacher and lay preacher in Russia for 11 years before immigrating to Canada in 1926. He taught in rural Manitoba schools for a further 28 years, including Edenburg School (1953-1954), Mitchell School (1955-1956, Principal), and 18 years at Rosenort School. In 1954, he was ordained and later was Pastor of the Sperling Mennonite Brethren Church for several years. He and his wife Katherine Erma had three daughters: Concordia Neufeld (wife of P. J. C. Wiebe), Cornelia Neufeld (wife of Abe N. Siebert), Eleonore Neufeld, and was predeceased by a son, Waldemar Neufeld. He died at the Concordia Hospital on 30 April 1968 and was buried at the Rosenort Evangelical Mennonite Church Cemetery.
