Dueck, Diedrich.jpgOn Thursday, April 12, 2007 at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Diedrich H. Dueck aged 79 years of Morden, MB formerly of Plum Coulee and Grossweide district, passed away peacefully with his family by his side.

Dad was born on August 13, 1927 in Bergfeld, MB to Peter B. and Katherina Dueck (nee Heppner).  He was the oldest of 5 siblings

In 1948, dad was baptized by Bishop Peter Toews at the Sommerfeld Church in Grossweide.  He married Mary Giesbrecht on October 10, 1948.  Dad and mom farmed at Grossweide for 31 years.  In 1979, they moved to Plum Coulee where they lived for 22 years.  They retired to Morden in 2004.

Dad was a kind and giving man.  He greatly enjoyed farming and being outdoors.  Dad also worked on construction for many years and spent countless hours in his workshop on hobbies he enjoyed.  He never really retired….In recent years, he kept busy volunteering at the Pembina Thresherman’s Museum and finding ways to help others.

One thing he truly enjoyed was fellowship with family and friends, which he continued to cherish throughout his life.  He was also fortunate to have traveled with mom to South America, Haiti, Israel and to Nicaragua with his brother, Abe.

He leaves to mourn his passing his beloved wife, Mary (nee Giesbrecht) of Morden, 2 daughters, Ruth and Pat Graham of Winkler, Kathy and Albert Harms of Morden; 5 grandchildren, Carrie and Ike Klassen, Amy Graham, Burton Graham, Jenna and Kelsey Fehr, Aric Harms; 3 great grandchildren, Raina, Logan and Xavier Klassen.  Dad is also remembered by 2 sisters, Helen Matters, Sarah and Dick Reimer; 1 brother, Anton and Susan Dueck; sister-in-law, Mary Dueck; stepbrother, Abe and Betty Ann Peters; stepparents, Margaret and John Peters; the Giesbrecht family as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.  We love you, Dad and we will miss you.

He was predeceased by his parents; a sister, Elizabeth in infancy and brother, Peter in 2002.

Funeral service was held on Wednesday, April 18, 2007 at 2:00 pm at Reinland Mennonite Church, Winkler with Bishop William Friesen officiating.  Interment followed at Rosenbach Cemetery.

As a family, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Lane and the medical staff at BTHC; the Morden Ambulance Service for the care and compassion dad was given and to Wiebe Funeral Home.  Also, thank you to the many family and friends for your prayers, visits, acts of kindness and comforting words.  They will not be forgotten.
