1923 - 2022

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Susie Dueck (nee Giesbrecht) on March 29, 2022, only weeks before her 99th birthday, after a brief illness and hospitalization at Misericordia Health Centre.
She leaves to mourn her passing, son John, daughter Helen, granddaughter Heidi, great-granddaughter Aurora, sister Helen Neufeld, and many nephews, nieces, neighbours and friends. She was predeceased by Ferdinand (Ferd) Dueck, her beloved husband of 45 years, and by sisters, Margaret Loewen, Agatha Schmidt, and Annie Klippenstein.
Susie and her twin sister, Margaret, were born on April 20, 1923, in Neubergthal, Manitoba. Susie married Ferd in 1946, and worked with him and his family at the Altona Dairy till 1955. After living briefly in Killarney, MB, the family moved to Winnipeg in 1963. Susie was a devoted wife, mother, and caregiver to her husband during his lengthy periods of illness, and also babysat, worked, and volunteered with the church and the MCC Thrift Shop. After the death of her husband in 1991, Susie continued to live in her family home, and was fortunate to be able to age in place, even in declining health, right until the final 15 days of her life. Daughter Helen would like to thank the home care attendants who helped her care for Susie in the last five years of her life, as well as loyal lunch companion Pete, family, friends, neighbours, and Helen's employer for all their support.
Interment will take place on Friday, April 8, at 2:30 p.m. at Glen Eden Cemetery, 4477 Main Street, prior to the service. Funeral service will begin at 4:00 p.m. at North Kildonan Mennonite Church on Roch at Cheriton, followed by a light faspa and fellowship.
