ANNE HIEBERT (published on January 09, 2010)



ANNE HIEBERT Anne Hiebert, 89, passed away peacefully on January 6, 2010 at Donwood Personal Care Home. She will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her husband of 64 years, Joseph, her children Joanne, Paul (Bev), Daniel (Natalie), beloved four grandchildren and great- grandchildren. Anne was predeceased by her parents, brother Peter Bergen and brother Henry Unruh. She is survived by her sisters Katherine Unruh, Mary (Walter) Klassen and sister-in-law Esther Unruh. Anne was born to Peter and Justina Bergen on June 3, 1920, in Schoenwiese , Russia. Her parents soon passed away and Anne was taken in by her Aunt Anna and Uncle Henry Unruh, who raised her alongside their children Katherine, Henry and Mary. The family immigrated to Mexico in 1925 and after three challenging years, moved to Canada and established their home in Morden, Manitoba. Anne's faith in God began early in life as she dedicated herself to follow the teachings of Christ. As a teenager, she enjoyed the life of the church, singing in the choir; especially when a boy named Joe was there. Anne was baptized at the age of 16, one of the most joyful moments in her life. Anne and Joe attended Winkler Bible School the same year and their interest in each other began to grow. They were married in 1945, and joined the North End Mennonite Brethren Church. They formed friendships in these early years which sustained them through life. Sixty-four years have passed since they were married. During these years her faith in God never wavered. She loved her husband with all she had, gave birth to three children who continue to love and adore her to this day, loved her family unconditionally, has patiently lived with health issues and seldom complained; always found reasons to be thankful, been an award winning World Book Encyclopedia sales person, loved her friends and community at Donwood, never spoke negatively about anyone, wrote beautiful poetry and could inspire others without getting out of bed. Anne was a woman who knew what hope means, what faith means, what dedication and persistence means, what joy means, and what love means. Through all the years her love for her family was only surpassed by her love for God. Her dream has always been to meet Him and her time has already come. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, January 12 at 10:00 a.m. at Glen Eden Funeral Home. Viewing will take place Monday, January 11 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at 171 Donwood Drive. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Anne's memory to Donwood Manor Personal Care Home. Glen Eden Funeral Home 338-7111
