Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jakob Dyck. He passed away on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at Health Science Centre with his family by his side.

Jakob will be dearly missed by his daughters Kaethe Neufeld and Rosemary (Roland) Sierks; daughter-in-law Elma Dyck; grandchildren Karen (Dave) Lavallee, Heidi (Ron) Dueck, Peter (Shannon) Neufeld, Karl (Rena) Neufeld, Robert (Veronika) Dyck, Alvin Dyck, Angela (Jason) Grierson, Katherine (Shane) Thiessen, Michael Sierks, and Paul Sierks; 15 great-grandchildren; 3 great-great-grandchildren; and brothers Abraham, Johann and Hermann. His is reunited with his wife Olga; son Jake; son-in-law Henry Neufeld; grandchild Eddie Neufeld; and siblings Heinrich, Gerhard and Susanna Dyck.

Jakob was born on February 2, 1927 in Steinau, Ukraine to Abraham and Anna (nee Neust├Ądter) Dyck. As a young man he joined the army during World War II. Postwar he met the love of his life, Olga. Jakob married Olga in Germany on February 11, 1948. They moved to Paraguay and started a family together. After five years, they moved to Argentina with their two young children, Kaethe and Jake. Jakob and Olga finally immigrated to Canada in 1958 for a better life. They settled in North Kildonan, Winnipeg where they welcomed their third child, Rosemary.

Jakob provided for his family working as a construction foreman. He was a long and faithful member of the North Kildonan Mennonite Church. Jakob was devoted to God and his family. He loved fishing and going to the cottage. Jakob took great pride in the garden and shared the harvest with family and friends. He enjoyed painting landscape pictures and garden figurines during the cold winter months.

We give special thanks to the caring staff at Riverwood and Irene Baron.

The funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 27 at 11:00 am at North Kildonan Mennonite Church, 1131 Roch Street, Winnipeg. The viewing will be at the church one hour before the service. Interment will follow at Glen Eden Memorial Gardens, 4477 Main Street, West Saint Paul.
