On Wednesday December 1, 2021 at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Jacob Heide, 91 years, 8 months and 24 days of Winkler, MB formerly of Hochfeld passed away peacefully with his family by his side.
Dad was born March 7, 1930 to Jacob and Susanna (nee Dyck) Heide in Hochfeld, MB. This is where he farmed and lived until the age of 80 when mom and dad moved to Winkler in 2010. He was baptized upon his confession of faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ in the Blumenfeld Old Colony Mennonite Church on May 26, 1953. His marriage to the love of his life, Mary Wolfe on June 25, 1953 stayed fast for 69 years, 5 months and 10 days. In later years, time was taken to enjoy Manitoba rodeos and fairs. He also became an avid woodworker and carver. As a grandfather and great grandfather, he welcomed each addition to the family and will be remembered as a compassionate person and a sociable individual whether at an event or shopping.
Mom and dad were blessed with two sons and one daughter: Jake (Merle), Aron (Barb), Mary (John), 10 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.
