It is with great sorrow that our family announces the passing of Dennis Leroy Kehler, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather on February 14, 2013, at the age of 81, with his wife Yvonne and family members at his side.

We were recently informed that our relative Judy McGarry had a serious accident at her home just before Christmas, on December 20, 2012. Judy fell and broke her neck. She was taken to the Health Sciences in Winnipeg, and has been stabilized, while the physicians figure out what to do next. Judy’s Uncle Lee Kehler, who resides in Lake Wylie, South Carolina, reports that she has feeling and mobility in her hands and feet — which is awesome. This website was designed to keep family informed, across the miles. Lee is asking if there would be some Kehlers who would exercise kindness to help this wonderful person through the serious times ahead. Judy is limited to one son, TJ, who lives in Pine Falls and a sister Diane in Winnipeg.
“I gather that she has a long road ahead with this injury and there isn’t anybody on the face of this earth that has the ability to cheer someone up, like a Kehler! We are blessed with a blood line that sees the world optimistically and differently than most.” Lee Kehler.
Thank you in advance for your prayers for, and acts of kindness to, our beloved Berliner Judy McGarry.
Happy New Year, to all the Kehler Clan!
Born Judith Ann Kehler, Judy McGarry is the daughter of Dennis & Yvonne Kehler, granddaughter to Cornelius S and & Frieda Kehler.
If ever there was an opportunity for God to enact his plan with a majestic flourish, it was at Jesus’ birth. But God did not presume upon humanity when he stepped in to redeem it. There was no pretense in this arrival. Rather, God chose to identify in the humblest way with those made in his image. The story of Jesus’ birth in Luke mixes praise with simplicity. Its contrast to the birth of John the Baptist is remarkable. John’s birth was announced in the capital, at the temple, in the center of the Jewish nation. But Jesus arrives in rural anonymity. John is the child of a priest and his righteous wife; Jesus belongs to Jews of average social status. Continue reading

Bill Aitken (1932-2010)
It’s been two years since we lost Bill Aitken, our father, and husband of Marlene Aitken (nee Kehler). As a child, I thought my father would always be with me. He was a symbol of wisdom, authority, security and constancy. In many ways, that feeling never changed. But time waits for no one and my father’s time ended on September 29, 2010, in his own bedroom, surround by those that deeply loved him. Our sense of loss continues till this day. Continue reading
