Historic Sites of Manitoba: Peace Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery (RM of Armstrong)

This cemetery in the Rural Municipality of Armstrong, associated with the Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church situated about two miles to the northwest, was established in 1916 on an acre of land donated by Gustav and Sahrafina Rattai when their three-year-old son Reinhold passed away. A stone monument was built before 1980 by Herb Jung and the cross was donated by August Singbiel. A new black granite monument was erected in 2016 to commemorate its 100th anniversary.
