Record Production ~ 1969

Mrs. PK Doerksen, Mrs. Aaron Kehler
Mrs. P.K. Doerksen of Fehler Apartments, Steinbach, spent her 81st birthday much like any other day, busy with her sewing projects. Together with her friend, Mrs. Aaron Kehler, who also resides in the apartments, the ladies have made 30 aprons, ten pairs of socks, five quilts and several dolls since Christmas. That must be a record production for the two women both past 75 years of age. The ladies take turns making meals for each other in their apartments, and cheering each other up when the need arises. Mrs. P. K. Doerksen has been a patient in the Extended Care Unit of the Bethesda for the last year and a half. Mrs. Kehler is a widow. – The Carillon News
