Jacob (Jake) Hildebrand
1940 - 2019
Jake was born to Bernard and Margaret Hildebrand (nee Suderman) on June 10, 1940. He grew up in the Greenfarm District.  At the age of ten, dad’s mother passed away from breast cancer. Bernard remarried Helen Penner in 1955. Dad was baptized upon the confession of his faith on June 2, 1963 and became a member of Altona Bergthaler Church. On May 3, 1964 dad married Elfrieda Teichroeb and together they had two children, Sherri in 1968 and Daphne in 1970 and made their home in Altona and then later in Winkler. Their marriage dissolved in 1982. While managing the bus depot in Winkler, he met the love of his life Martie Blatz. They got married on March 21, 1987.  Martie brought into our family her daughter Sherry and son Sheldon. Dad loved spending time with his family whether at home or on vacation. He loved fishing and loved gardening even more. He had a huge garden at Sherri and Mike’s where he went constantly and sometimes just stood and watched it grow. Dad started working in Winnipeg at Eatons as a mail order clerk. He then moved to Altona and started working as a linotype technician at DW Friesens. He then opened up J & M Appliances where he also sold Pic-A-Pop. His love of printing eventually got the best of him and led him to open up a print shop in Winkler, Manitoba called Main Printing. In 1989, dad and Martie moved from Morden to Lethbridge because dad was offered a job at Fisher Printing and they wanted to be closer to their grandchildren. At this time dad also ran a printing business out of his garage and a business called Kwik Stamp. In 2005, they moved back to Manitoba to enjoy retirement and their Manitoba grandchildren. In 2014 dad was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia. In 2016, our dad had a fall and thereafter his dementia worsened. In May of 2018, he moved into Tabor Home where he resided until his death on Tuesday April 23, 2019.
Dad leaves to mourn his wife, Martie, daughters, Sherri (Mike), Daphne (Dwayne), Sherry (Gary) and son Sheldon (Joe), six grandchildren, Hailey, Dallas, Chelsey, Kaylee, Weston and Brendon, one great-grandchild Mesa, three sisters and one brother. He was predeceased by his parents, four brothers and one sister.
Memorial service at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday April 27, 2019 at the Morden Mennonite Church with interment prior at the Winkler Cemetery. Donations may be made in Jake’s memory to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba. The family would like to thank the staff at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Rock Lake Hospital, Salem Home and Tabor Home for their compassionate care over the years.
