Nancy Hoeppner

Nancy Margaret (Siemens) Hoeppner

1916 - 2004

Nancy Hoeppner.jpgNancy was born in South Battleford, Saskatchewan, the youngest in a family of twelve and the only one to be born in the hospital. At age 14, she had to leave school to work at home, as the family were farming two sections of land near Melita at the time. Nancy’s parents lost their farm during the depression, and moved into a house near Morden.

Nancy was married to Tony Hoeppner on October 23, 1938, in the M.B. Church on N. Railway St. in Morden, when she was 21 years old. In1945 they purchased the farm south of Morden where they raised their six children and one foster child.

Nancy and Tony accepted the Lord into their hearts at a revival meeting in a school house in 1941. After that their ambitions and desires changed; Nancy’s greatest desire was for all of her children to serve the Lord, and she never stopped praying for the fulfillment of that wish.

Nancy was an active member of the Morden Pentecostal Church. She taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School for many years, was a member of the Women’s Missionary Council, and almost never missed a church service. She and Tony brought neighboring children to Sunday School, and many evangelists and their families regularly enjoyed the hospitality of her home. She was quick to help the needy, the grieving, and the sick in any way she could, never forgetting to comfort them with prayer and a promise from God’s Word.

In later years, Nancy and Tony were able to do some traveling. They attended Pentecostal World Conferences in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Seoul, Korea. Some time after Tony’s death, Nancy joined a tour to the Holy Land with the folks from 100 Huntley Street.

After Tony’s death in 1984, Nancy moved from her farm home of 39 years, into a house in Morden. In 1991 she moved into the Tabor Units, and in 1998, to Orangeville, Ontario, to be closer to family. She died peacefully on January 1, at the age of 87.

Nancy leaves to mourn five daughters and one son; Judy and husband Ginter Kwiatkowski of Kelowna, B.C., Phyllis and husband Murray Donais of Sylvan Lake, Alta., Jim of Regina, Sask., Carol and husband Eric Lundsted of Flesherton, Ont., Janice and husband Ivan Dickinson of Alton, Ont., and Pauline and husband Robert Kizlyk of Winnipeg, Man.; grandchildren, Shannon, Kevin, Trent, Leah, Carla, Timothy, Andrea, Adrian, and Andrew; and greatgrandchildren, Jennifer, Jessica, Caitlin, Sarah, Shannon, Bethany, and Adam. She was predeceased by her husband Tony, brothers Henry, Jake, Albert, and Bill, sisters Mary and Kay, and five half sisters and brothers.

The funeral was held on January 9, 2004, at the Christian Life Centre in Morden, with interment at the Waldheim Cemetery. The family requests that donations be made to PAOC Missions or The Gideon Bible Society in Nancy’s memory.

As a family, we mourn the loss of a loving mother, grandmother, and greatgrandmother, but celebrate her life and rejoice at her Homegoing.
