Aafke (Affie) May Fahr, age 73, passed away peacefully Thursday, January 7, 2021.
She was born October 17, 1947 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan to Reg and Margaretha Harris.
Aafke loved caring for others. She and her long-time friend Myfawny (Myf) Mcintosh, began their nursing careers in 1967. They worked in Estevan, Calgary, Toronto, the Moose Jaw Union Hospital and St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon.
She retired in 2018 after working for more than 50 years. The last 30 years of her nursing career were spent working with Dr. Chernoff, Kusch and Parker. Through the years, she earned the love and respect of thousands of patients and colleagues.
Aafke loved to paint, a skill she perhaps acquired from her mother. She especially enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Aafke is survived by her brothers Bill (Carole) and Bob (Karen); her two sons Rob (Laurie) and Matt (Mandy); grandchildren, Jordan, Jenna, Maverick, and Madalynn Fahr; and her many nephews and nieces. All of whom she loved and touched deeply.
Special thanks to the staff at Diamond House in Warman as well as the staff at the Royal University Hospital for the care and love they showered upon Aafke over the past 5 months. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan. https://cancerfoundationsask.ca/donors/
