Feldhaus, Jennifer

January 17, 1946 - February 20, 2015


Jennifer Mary (Batter) Feldhaus was born in Surrey England Jan 17, 1946. She passed away Friday Feb 20, 2015 at Royal Columbian Hospital.  She will be deeply missed by her husband of 48 years Hubert (Bert) Feldhaus, her brother Craig Batter, her 6 children: David, Linda, Robert, Kim, Virginia (Husband Jason Jocko), and Mary-Elizabeth (Husband Farhan Lalji) and her 9 grandchildren.   Nicholas 16, Jonas 6, Mark 21, Noah 16, Joshua and Nicholas 14, Jasmine 4, Lukas 6 and Nora 2.
Jennifer came to Canada with her war-bride mother Lilian (Heginbotham) Batter to join her Father trooper No. 136897 Frank George Alexander Batter in Piapot Saskatchewan on the family farm. At three years old she moved to Medicine Hat so her Mum could work as a head nurse in the hospital and her father as a mechanic.  Jennifer grew up with her brother Craig and spent many weekends as her dad’s wingman on hunting trips in the surrounding prairies collecting grouse, wild ducks and deer.  Jennifer played piano and completed her grade 12 year in a Catholic boarding school in Edmonton. The following year she attended Mount Royal College in Calgary where she met the love of her life at a Catholic Youth Association dance.  They married in June 1967 and became parents with David arriving on the scene. After 1 year in Calgary they moved out west and eventually found a nice plot of agricultural land in Surrey to settle on and raise animals and more children. Once Mary-Elizabeth, the youngest was 3, Jennifer went back to school and completed her Psychiatric Nursing degree at BCIT. She nursed for 10 years in Riverview Hospital spending many night shifts making her patients extra comfortable. Her later years were filled sharing her love with many foster children and advocating for their welfare. Eventually both Jennifer and Bert retired into rewarding volunteer Prison Ministry work under the careful guidance of Father Mako Watanabe and Maureen Donegan. Jennifer would often return from prison visits commenting on how wonderful Father’s homily was for all the volunteers.   Prayers to be offered  7:00 pm, Thursday, February 26, 2015, Mass of Christian Burial to be celebrated at 11:00 am, Friday, February 27, 2015 both held at Precious Blood Catholic Church 17475 – 59 Ave, Surrey, BC.  Reception to follow in the parish hall. Burial will be at 2:30pm at Gardens of Gethsemani 15800-32 Ave. Surrey BC. All are welcome to attend.     Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.bakerviewcrematorium.com

We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Jennifer. Although we were not able to meet with Jennifer we shared many memories with Linda and Mary when they were staying with Bernard my father here on the Isle of Man. We offer our sincere condolences to all the family at this very sad time. Roger Jasmine and family

From: Rani Gill
Relation: Neighbor

I grew up beside the Feldhaus family. Jenny was an almost daily part of my life as a child. I remember a house always full of kids, noise and conversation. Jenny claimed I was half-Irish because I was born on St. Patrick’s day — and lo and behold, many years later I married a half-Irish lad who grew up in Chicago. She was also pivotal in my decision to attend Simon Fraser. At her and Bert’s insistence I applied (rather late) and was granted a scholarship on the spot! Her attempt to interest me in Brownie’s didn’t quite turn out so well — I managed only one badge in skipping backwards (which I can still do to this day; Linda did much better.) There are so many memories. My heartfelt condolences to Bert, David, Linda, Robert, Kim, Virginia and Mary (and spouses and grandkids) on behalf of the Gill family. We are still neighbors even though many miles seperate me from the Farm these days. I will see you all on Friday. — Renne (yes, signed the old way 🙂
