BOSCHMAN, Rudy. Rudy (RB) Boschman was born October 15, 1923 in Rosenort, Ukraine. When he was three years old, the family immigrated to Canada. He accepted Christ as his Saviour at the age of nine. His young life was spent in schooling, working on the family farm & involvement in the local church. In 1943 Rudy married his first love, Anne Klassen. Together they raised a family of four children. Rudy’s passions were music and evangelism, and he devoted his life to sharing the gospel with everyone he met. In 1986, his beloved wife passed away after a short battle with brain cancer. The following year, Rudy was blessed with a second love, and was married to Anne Janzen. Together they had many opportunities to travel and minister together. Rudy spent the last two years of his life in a care facility; first Bevan Lodge and most recently Menno Home. The family is deeply grateful to the wonderful staff who cared for him. On October 28, 2012 Rudy’s long awaited desire was realized, when he peacefully passed into the presence of his Lord & Saviour. He leaves to mourn his wife, Anne, his children Ed & Carol Boschman, Merv & Carol Boschman, Vange & Rick Falk, Viv & Ron Johnstone, 13 grandchildren & 14 great grandchildren. The Memorial Service will be held at Central Heights Church, 1661 McCallum Road, Abbotsford at 11 AM on Friday, November 2nd. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to MB Mission.
