Helen HILDEBRANDT

Helen Hildebrandt passed away on December 10, 2014 in Abbotsford at the age of 82 years. She was born on March 8, 1932 in Osterwick, Ukraine. She is survived by her loving husband Henry of 63 years, children Henry (Anita) Hildebrandt, Tina (Henry) Bergen, John (Sharon) Hildebrandt, Elsie (Hildebrandt) Thiessen, Abe (Lorna) Hildebrandt, Rosie (Al) Brechin and many precious grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandhild. Helen was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, and couldn’t wait to see them. And she enjoyed any visits from her children. She was a charter member of Eben-Ezer Church, loved the Lord, and she devoted a big part of her life to volunteering at MCC, and helping others. Hard times and hard work was a part of her life, with six kids running a farm in the earlier years, then an RV business for the last part of her life before she finally got a chance to retire. She never complained and made the best of everything she ran into. In the last few years of her life, she spoke many times of going to her home in Heaven, and now there is no more suffering from illness and she is in a good place and happy. We would like to thank all the wonderful staff at the Menno Home who cared, had compassion, and took good care of her in her time there. Viewing for family and friends will be held Tuesday, December 16, 2014 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at Woodlawn Funeral Home, 2310 Clearbrook Road, Abbotsford. A Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 2:00 pm at Eben-Ezer Mennonite Church, 2051 Windsor Street, Abbotsford.
