Katrina (Tina) Bergman (nee Hildebrand)

1924 - 2017 

Tina Bergman was born on May 24, 1924 to Abraham and Agatha Hildebrand [nee Dyck] on the farm in the Kronsgart district. She was the third child of seven. She is survived by one sister, Annie and sister in law, Emmy. She was predeceased by husband, Cornie in 2007, sisters, Agatha, Lena and Agnes and brothers, Herb and Abe. She was also predeceased by in-laws, Jim Dyck and Mary Hildebrand [nee Enns]. 

Mom was baptized on her confession of faith.  In her early twenties, Mom’s sister, Annie was dating a young man Jim Dyck. One day, Jim brought his best friend, Cornie along. Obviously, Mom was taken with him, because on July 11th, 1948, Mom and sister, Annie had a double wedding. Mom and Dad lived on the farm, four miles south of Kane. Mom and Dad were blessed with three sons: Grant [Darlene], Earl [Valerie], Rodney [Darlene], nine grandchildren, Amanda [Doug], Justin [Megan], Scott, Alexandra, Paige, Preston, Christopher, Karl [Angela] and Kimberly, five great grandchildren, Kaylee, Neveah, Jereth, Jensen, and Adelyn. 

Mom was very involved in church. She enjoyed the ladies fellowship and singing in the choir. In 1985, Mom and Dad retired and moved to Winkler. They enjoyed many years of traveling. They traveled to every state in the US and every province in Canada. Mom and Dad enjoyed the Arizona climate and spent many winters there.

Mom loved to crochet as a pastime and we have many afghans to show for it. Through the years of Dad’s failing health, Mom faithfully showed us what the marriage vow “through sickness and health” meant. She lived it, always being there for Dad. When Dad’s health didn’t allow him to live at home, Mom moved into Cedar Estates on the conditions that she could be on one of the upper floors and facing west, so she could watch the weather. She had a great circle of friends that would meet regularly for coffee at Chicken Chef and McDonald’s. Then in June of this year, due to failing health and not being able to live on her own, Mom was admitted to Boundary Trails Health Centre for a month and then transferred to Swan Lake Hospital to await placement in Tabor Home. On November 17th, she was moved back to Boundary where we were able to spend four days with her until November 20th, when she was called to her heavenly home. She lived her entire life following God’s word. Over the last years, as her health was failing, she would express her desire to be with Jesus. The last few weeks she was so close to her heavenly home, you couldn’t help but feel His presence in the room. 

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:1-3 (NKJV) 

Memorial service was held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday November 27, 2017 at Winkler Bergthaler Mennonite Church with interment prior at Winkler Cemetery. We as a family, would like to say a special thank you to Boundary Trails and Swan Lake hospital staff as well as Wiebe Funeral Home for the kindness and respect they showed our Mom and George Klassen catering for a job well done.
