1920 – 2005

Dyck CD Cornelius.jpgCornie Dyck was born November 10, 1920 at Aberdeen, Saskatchewan (about 25 miles north east of Saskatoon) to Abram and Justina Dyck.  In 1922 when Cornie was two, he together with his parents and twelve brothers and sisters moved to Manitoba.  Four more siblings were added to the family in the next eleven years.  They lived at various places until 1938 when his parents moved to Austin.  Cornie worked away from home to help support the family.  In 1946, Cornie attended Bible School in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and then two more years in Peterborough, Ontario.  They received their ordination papers in 1958.

July 29, 1947, he married Audrey Hurry of Morden, Manitoba.  They lived in Morden their entire married life.  In 1954, they adopted Norma and in 1961 they completed their family by adopting Pamela.

Cornie worked for many years at the Morden Experimental Farm and later at the Turners Bakery.  He also took his St. John’s First Aid Course and taught it for many years.  Cornie also worked at Salem Nursing Home in Winkler and at Tabor Nursing Home in Morden as a Nurses Assistant.  For many years he was a sales person for Fuller Brush Company.

Cornie had hobbies such as attending to his yard, gardening, fruit trees, especially his apple trees and vegetables.

Cornie was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2002 and then August 8, 2004 he had two massive strokes.  With a lot of determination over a period of time, he learned to walk again with the aid of a walker.  He loved to sleep.  In the end, it was the lung cancer that took its toll.

Cornie loved to talk to others about the Lord and challenged them to accept Jesus as their personal Saviour and Lord.

They attended and were involved at Christian Life Centre and on occasion he would substitute for Rev. Hughie Morrow in Manitou.

We enjoyed Aunt Audrey and Uncle Cornie during personal visits and at family gatherings.  We loved to tease Uncle Cornie of always being in a hurry, after all, he married Audrey Hurry.

He is survived by his wife, Audrey; two daughters, Norma and Pam; one son-in-law, Robert Epp; eight grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren and one sister, Nettie George of Toronto, Ontario.  He is also survived by Audrey’s one sister Heather and Peter Hoeppner of Winnipeg and her brother Ray and Ruth Cairins of Carstairs, Alberta and their best friends, Henry and Rita of Killarney and many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by one son-in-law, Gary Banman, his parents, 11 brothers and 4 sisters.

Funeral service was held at Christian Life Centre in Morden at 2:00 pm with Pastor Weldon Yeo officiating.  Interment followed at Hillside Cemetery in Morden.

The family would like to thank those who have supported them during this time.  A special thank you to Pastor Weldon, Wiebe Funeral Home, Church family and a thank you to all who came to share this difficult day with them.
