Hiebert, Paulina Ray (Torrans)Born 1924 in Swift Current, SK. Died August 14, 2011 in Abbotsford, BC. She was predeceased by her husband Henry in 2010. She is survived by her four children, Ken, Radiance (Laura), Howie and Eric, their spouses and a step-granddaughter, Agapi. Paulina was predeceased by all of her sisters and brothers. In particular, she felt the loss of two brothers who died in WWII.

As a young married couple Henry and Paulina moved from Saskatchewan to the Fraser Valley and raised their family in Chilliwack and Yarrow. Henry and Paulina will be remembered by many who attended the Alliance church in Chilliwack and Yarrow in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Henry and Paulina lived in Vernon, BC from 1989 to 2008 when illness compelled her to move into Menno Home in Abbotsford. We are grateful to all the staff at Menno Home East Two for their years of attentive care and kindness to our mother. We are grateful to all the extended family who offered their companionship and support and in particular Martha Wiens, Paulina’s sister-in-law. A graveside ceremony was held at Chilliwack Cemetery on August 18. If you wish to share your reminiscences of Paulina, you may write to Ken Hiebert, PO Box 2506, Ladysmith, BC or send a message to
