HILDA NELLIE HIEBERT It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother at the age of 85 on August 22, 2012. Hilda was predeceased by her husband Alfred, whom she missed dearly, and brothers Frank, Jacob Henry and sisters Mary, Elizabeth, and Nettie. She will be lovingly remembered by her son Dan and wife Theresa, son Darrell, daughter Patricia and husband Peter, grandchildren Erika, Kristin (Kyle), Dallan, Cara, Denyse (Ryan), Drew (Ashley), Devin, great-grand-children Aidan and Zhanna, and sisters Annie, Lydia, and Erna (John). Gramma was born in Eyebrow, SK where her parents operated a family farm. Later they moved to Lena, MB. After getting married, they farmed their own until they moved to Winnipeg in 1956 where she worked as a seamstress and in retail businesses. Gramma had a passion for life, enjoyed travelling and spending time with her family, especially the grandchildren. Her passion for family gatherings and reunions will be missed, and remembered as we continue the traditions she started. Our comfort comes with knowing she is at peace. The family wishes to thank the staff at Meadowood Manor for the loving care and comfort they provided her. Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, August 27, 2012 at Faith Lutheran Church, 1311 Dakota Street. Interment will follow at Glen Lawn Memorial Gardens, 455 Lagimodiere Blvd. For those who wish to make donations in lieu of flowers, these will be graciously accepted in memory of Hilda at The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba, 200-6 Donald Street, Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6.
