LetkemanTinaSQ.jpgOn Monday June 1, 2009, at Tabor Home in Morden, MB Tina Letkeman aged 60 years passed away. 

Tina was born on September 19, 1948 in Paraguay, South America to Jacob and Margaretha (nee Reimer) Hiebert and moved to Canada in 1965. She was baptized upon confession of her faith on May 14, 1967. After completing her nurses’ training, she served with Mennonite Central Committee in Germany as well as working as a nurse in Winnipeg. 

During this time, she met Roy Letkeman. They were married on November 19, 1983 and made their home in Morden. She used her gifts in nursing in the Morden area until the continually growing brain tumors made it impossible for her to do her work. Her compassion and her experiences with pain helped her to empathize with and understand her patients. 

Tina took her faith in Jesus seriously, in that she committed to living her life in service and caring for others. The Lord was her Shepherd (Psalm 23). 

She leaves to mourn her passing her husband, Roy of Morden; daughter, Sonya of Winnipeg and son, Arthur of Morden; 2 grandchildren, Meagan and Ashley; her mother, Margaretha Hiebert as well as 2 brothers; 3 sisters; sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; her father-in-law and their families. 

She was predeceased by her father and 2 brothers. 

Funeral service was held on Friday June 5, 2009 at 2:00 PM at Morden Sommerfeld Mennonite Church. Interment followed at Hillside Cemetery. 

The family wishes to thank the staff at Tabor Home for their respectful and loving care for Tina. They are also thankful for her faithful friends who stood by her until the end. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Tina’s memory to the Mennonite Central Committee 134 Plaza Dr. Winnipeg, MB R3T 5K9. 

Wiebe Funeral Chapel, Morden in care of arrangements.
