October 26, 1953- August 21, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the early morning passing of Myron Henschel, 67, on August 21 at Riverview Health Centre after a battle of liver cancer and other health issues.

He will be deeply missed by his loving wife of 45 years, Cheryl (nee Kauenhofen); sons Zachary (Crystal) and Regan (Trish); grandchildren, Molly, Max and Merek; sisters Joyce Bickell and Vivian Betsch; many nieces and nephews, as well as mother-in-law Lenora Kauenhofen; sister-in-law Valerie and brother-in-law Cameron.

He was predeceased by his parents, Lawrence and Jessie Henschel; brother Wayne; grandson (stillborn) Luke; father-in-law John Kauenhofen, brothers-in-law Chuck Bickell and Ron Bertsch and sister in-law Donna Henschel.

Myron was born in Beausejour and grew up in the River Hills area, the youngest of 4 siblings.

After high school, he attended Steinbach Bible College, Winnipeg Bible College and Seminary (now Providence) and obtained his MDiv and ThM degrees.  It was there that he met Cheryl and they were married on August 14, 1976.  He then went on to pastor churches in Killarney, Portage la Prairie and Minitonas.  He loved to preach and teach.  It was during these years that his sons Zachary and Regan were born, giving him much joy and many fun family times were experienced.

In 2002 he “retired” from the ministry and soon started working for Vector/Galvanic Corrosion Technologies in Winnipeg, where he was employed as a lab technician; a job he loved.  He could use his scientific mind to be as precise as was required.  During this time his three precious grandchildren, Molly, Max and Merek were born and became his pride and joy.  He loved them so much and enjoyed all the times spent together; especially the trips to BC to visit them, which always passed by too quickly.

Humour was a very important part of his life.  He was known for his puns and dad jokes.  This trait was passed on to his sons and then also the grandchildren, who were always eager to share a joke with him.  He had a sharp wit and could remember details which made him very good at Jeopardy.  He seemed to know something about everything.  Stories about childhood shenanigans he got into with his nephew, were a hit with the grandchildren, as well as he could dramatize them very well.  He also enjoyed writing and was in the process of writing a book, which unfortunately did not get finished.  He loved VW Bugs and had a vast collection of memorabilia and models.  He was a bit of a pack rat and saved discarded things for future projects.  He loved to tinker with small appliances – rescuing things from the trash and trying to fix them – sometimes even being successful.

In his younger days, he loved to fish and was so proud of the secondhand boat he was able to buy while living in Minitonas.

His faith was very important to him.  He was raised in a Christian family and accepted Christ as his savior at the knee of his mother as a young child.  It was his desire right to the end that all his family and friends accept Christ as well.

Classical music was special to him, and he listened to it while resting in his final days.  He was a very friendly man full of integrity and emotion – often brought to tears.

He had experienced health concerns for many years, starting with diabetes, then cirrhosis of the liver, and then 10 months ago, untreatable liver cancer.  He fought hard, going to work when the strength was no longer there and trying to continue with life.  In January 2021, he stopped working and experienced a short-lived retirement with Cheryl with many dreams going unfulfilled.  He was taken to the Riverview Health Centre Palliative Care unit, where he passed peacefully 12 hours later to one of his favorite sounds of falling rain.

A private interment will take place at the Whiteshell Baptist Cemetery in River Hills, with a service of Remembrance to follow on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue East, Beausejour, Manitoba.

Condolences for the family of “Myron Graham Ralph Henschel”

Condolence from Karen Hintz on August 25th, 2021 8:38 pm

I have fond memories of my Dad’s brother, my Uncle Lawrence and Aunt Jessie and their family with Myron being the youngest of my four cousins in their family .
Henschel family reunions always provided the opportunity to visit , to meet new members of the family (through marriage or with a new baby’s arrival).
There were also special family events such as weddings and anniversaries when we enjoyed
visiting ,since although not all cousins regularly visited each other’s homes, we enjoyed keeping up with each other’s good news. That also would happen when Uncle Lawrence and Aunt Jessie visited with me and Kari and Ainsley when they came to Beausejour for appointments. They were so proud of their family!
(I later visited with my uncle and aunt when they relocated to Winnipeg.)
But during the difficult times we reach out to our extended family too. I extend sincere sympathy to Cheryl and Zachary and Regan and to their wives and to Cheryl’s grandchildren and to Cheryl’s mother and siblings and families.
And I also extend sympathy to my cousins,
Myron’s siblings and to their families.
May you all know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of others who care and understand.
Cousins Karen and family Kari (Jason ,Jesseand Ainsley(Darryl , Kaleb).

I’m so sorry to hear of Myron’s passing. I was his classmate in Whitemouth. He was a very kind guy. My condolences to his family

Condolence from Frank Behnke on August 25th, 2021 11:39 pm

Dear Cheryl and family’s
We are saddened to learn of the passing of Myron. Myron was a great friend growing up and we did many fun activities in our younger days from fishing, hunting and exploring the Whiteshell Provincial park on land and water, in boats and cars. We were able to catch up this last while, reminiscing about all our adventures and the crazy fun we had. So glad we were able to do retell those stories before Myron went home to be with Jesus. Myron will be missed.

Our sincere sympathies,
Love
Frank and Cindy Behnke
Peace River, Alberta

I am saddened to hear of Myron’s passing. Yet we have good memories of them as our neighbors in St. Pierre. His bible knowledge, sense of humour, and kindness is in my memory bank. It was always a good moment when I saw Cheryl at the Bible store. However, I’m glad for him as He is in the presence of his Lord.
With fond memories, love , and prayers to Cheryl and the family. Love, Jon & Jan
