Doug Janzen Obituary, Death – During this difficult time, the Janzen family will be in my prayers and thoughts. The unfortunate passing of Doug Janzen, the devastating fire that took place at their Steinbach facility, and now this misfortune that has befallen them. I would like to encourage everyone to pray for this family and beg God to give them hope. The story of Job in the Bible is clearly appropriate to this situation, and I would like to encourage everyone to pray for them. As the proprietor of a local business, I am of the opinion that the local business community in Winkler and the surrounding region should do everything that is within our power to assist in any way that is required.
This is because we are all part of the same community. If any member of the family or any of the family’s relatives happens to come across this message, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me and let me know how we can be of service to you and the rest of the family. The fire that broke out at Janzen’s Paint and Decorating in Winkler is being put out by the local fire department, which is currently working on the blaze. Witnesses have stated that the fire began today about lunchtime and quickly spread throughout the structure. The building was completely destroyed in a relatively short amount of time as a result of the fire.
Highway 32 was temporarily closed between Highway 14 and Cargil Road because of poor vision brought on by a toxic smoke cloud that blanketed the sky. This closure was necessary because of the proximity of Cargil Road to Highway 14. It is now possible for automobiles to travel in its entirety along the 32nd state route. Pembina Valley Online will continue to monitor the ever-changing circumstance and will offer an update to this story as soon as additional information is acquired.
