William “Bill” Edward Giesbrecht

1932 - 2009 

Giesbracht Bill SQ.jpgOn Wednesday, May 6, 2009 at Tabor Home, Bill Giesbrecht aged 77 years of Morden, MB passed away peacefully with his brother, Al at his side. 

Left to remember him with love are his brother Al and Joan Giesbrecht of Regina, SK; niece, Lori and Steve VanWoert, nephews, Don and Robin Giesbrecht and Doug and Leslie Giesbrecht and their families all of Regina. 

He was predeceased by his parents. 

Bill was born in Morden on April 18, 1932 to Isaac and Lena (nee Wiens) Giesbrecht.  He took his schooling in Morden and after high school worked as a grocery clerk as well as a partsman for the John Deere Dealership and Morden Motors.  For several years, Bill taught carpentry to Junior High classes.  He also taught Hunter Safety for 28 years.  Bill would often travel to eastern Canada to participate in national shooting match competitions and bring home plaques to commemorate his successes.  He enjoyed his life’s profession as a carpenter, building houses, farm buildings, cabinetry as well as doing many renovation projects. 

Bill moved to Tabor Home 6 ½ years ago after struggling with health issues in his own home.  His health improved and he enjoyed the interaction with staff and residents.  However, in the last few months his health deteriorated quite rapidly and we realized that his time with us was drawing to a close. 

Just 3 weeks ago, we had the privilege of celebrating Bill’s 77th birthday.  Our family gathered in the Nutmeg Room, complete with birthday cake, sparklers and balloons.  It is a day we will always treasure. 

Funeral service was held on Saturday May 9, 2009 at 11:00 am at Wiebe Funeral Chapel with ash interment at a later date at Southside Cemetery. 

The care and friendship shown to Bill during his time at Tabor resulted in a change in his outlook on life.  We would like to say thank you to the staff at Tabor for your care and concern.  WE will be forever grateful.  A special thank you to Chaplain Morris Vincent and the volunteers for the time you spent with Bill.  May God bless each one of you. 

If friends so desire, donations may be made in Bill’s memory to either the Canadian Diabetes Association or the Kidney Foundation of Canada Manitoba Branch. 

Wiebe Funeral Chapel, Morden in care of arrangements.
