Jacob Klassen
1928 - 2020
Jake Klassen of Morden, MB formerly of Valleyfield School District, passed away peacefully on Monday March 30, 2020 at Tabor Home at the age of 91.
Dad was predeceased by his wife, Anne (nee Friesen) in 2009. For 57 years they shared everything together; they were a great team supporting each other in every way. Mom was his best friend and life was never the same for Dad after her passing. Dad was born in the village of Hochfeld in June 1928. He left home at an early age to work at the Titchkosky farm in the 1-6 district south of Morden. Dad and Mom were married on October 5th, 1952. They purchased a farm south of Morden where they raised their four children. His passion for dairy and grain farming was evident even after they sold the farm and moved to Morden. He was a hardworking, compassionate and loving father. His love for his family was unconditional and that is something we will always cherish. Dad's quick wit and sense of humor were character traits that all of us will remember. He always had a passion for country and gospel music. Grand Ole Opry, Joey and Rory, Cripple Creek were some of his favorites. His strong faith in his personal savior, Jesus Christ was clearly shown in his daily life through prayer and his well-used Bible, which was always within reach.
He will be sadly missed by his children, Jake (Debbie), Ruth (Rudy), John (Darlene), and Wayne (Janet). He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren: Landon (Tracy), Jaclyn (Brendan), Duane (Luisa), Corey (Andrea), Amy (Devin), Joel, Troy (Lavonne), Emily and Matthew and his great grandchildren: Azmera, Halia, Madden, Ezra, Sacha, Harrison, Adelyn, Leah, Hannah, and Austin. He is survived by one sister, Agatha (Frank) Letkeman, brother, Isaac Klassen, sisters-in-law, Anne Klassen, Elizabeth Dyck, Mary Friesen, Mary Ann Friesen and Marge (Frank) Unger.
Graveside service on Thursday April 2, 2020 at Southside Cemetery. Thank you from the family to the staff at Tabor Home for their loving care and support during dad’s stay. Also, the family would like to extend their gratitude to Wiebe Funeral Home for being so accommodating during this difficult time. A special thank you to Morris Vincent for his years of friendship, caring support, and for officiating at the graveside. To our friends and family, thank you for all your support and words of encouragement during this difficult time. To Ruth and Rudy, from your brothers Jake, John and Wayne, a heartfelt thank you for your love, support and dedication to dad, and for always going the extra mile. It did not go unnoticed and will not be forgotten.
