Helen Wall (nee Dyck)
1930 – 2019
 
Our mother, Helen Wall went to be with her Lord and Saviour at 2:50 p.m. on Thursday October 31, 2019 at the Salem Home after not feeling the greatest that morning.
 
She celebrated her 89th birthday on October 15th. Mom was the last of ten children to be born to John and Anna Dyck in Blumenfeld. This is where she graduated after eight years of school. She was baptized on confession of faith on June 2, 1950 in the Sommerfelder Church. At the age of 15, her father passed away and eight months later her mother married Peter Bergen. That marriage lasted almost 13 years until her mother passed away. After her stepfather married Margaret Neufeld, mom appreciated these stepparents as long as they lived as well as the step siblings. When she was about 18, she and her mother and stepfather moved to Friedensruh and then to Plum Coulee. While living in Friedensruh, she met the love of her life, David Wall. Mom and dad were married August 30, 1953. That union was blessed with one daughter, two sons and lasted 62 years and eight months. The first years were spent living and working at Kroeker Farms near Neuenberg. From there they made a move to Schanzenfeld and lived there for about 33 years. Mom and dad were kept busy with farming and the dairy barn. In 1992, they retired to Winkler. Here she did a little gardening and cooking for whenever someone might drop in and stay for some goodies. Mom was always the life of the party; this is how many would describe her. Her last joking comment was to one of the nurses the morning of her death. She was the go-to lady when they needed someone to make rishia at Salem. Mom took up residence at the care home on November 18, 2016, almost three years ago. We felt they appreciated her there and she them.
 
She is survived by three children; one daughter, Alfreda and Harold Thiessen, two sons, David and Joyce Wall, Ed and Teresa Wall, 12 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. She is also survived by dad’s brother, Henry and a sister-in-law, Agatha Wall. She was predeceased by her loving husband, David Wall in May 2016, her parents and all her siblings and their spouses.
 
Funeral service at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday November 5, 2019 at the Winkler Reinland Mennonite Church with interment at the Church Cemetery in Schanzenfeld.
 
We would like to thank everyone for the prayers and support they have shown. A special thank you to the staff at Salem Home who were always there to help even when she wanted to take care of herself. Thank you to Jake Wiebe for officiating, Wiebe Funeral Home, ushers, pallbearers, serving ladies, song leaders and anyone else who assisted in some way. We do not mourn but rejoice that she was able to meet her Lord and Saviour. Until we meet again, we will carry your memory in our hearts. Thank you, The Family.

It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of your mother. She was our moms best friend and I will always remember her as the aunt who had the infectious laugh. We always enjoyed her company. I was so blessed to have seen her on my moms last day on this earth and rejoice with you that she will now be rejoined with her family and friends in heaven. I pray God will guild you through this time of morning and give you peace. Linda (nee Dyck)

I am so sorry to hear of Helen's passing and yet praise Jesus for the joy she is now experiencing. I connected with her at Salem and loved it when she called me Ruby.

Dave, Ed, very sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. I always remembered what a kind & pleasant lady she was when I would come over to play hockey, play with the farm toys in the dirt and end up with a great faspa after. God bless you during this time of sorrow.
