Peacefully, Wednesday, July 13, 2005 our beloved father and grandfather went to be with his Lord.

Left to cherish his memory are his two sons, Garnet (Elma), Ross (Robyn); and his daughter Louise; his grandchildren Chad (Amanda) and Megan; Fraser and Anja; two brothers, Frank and Herman; two sisters, Jessie Braun and Helen Leduc; and one sister-in-law, Lena Isaac; and their families.

He was predeceased by his wife Leonora in 1986; and two brothers, Joe and Klaas.

Dad was born to Jacob and Katherine Isaac, March 1, 1913 in Kleefeld, Man. May 19, 1951 he married Leonora Isaac, who was the light of his life for 35 years until her death. Dad was an avid outdoorsman, who enjoyed hunting, fishing and campfires.

For years he owned Isaac's Garage, servicing the community's mechanical needs. Dad also custom baled for many years before going to work at Lund Boat. Here he invented many time and labor saving tools.

In his retirement he continued his unique and artistic talent for metal work. Dad spent many years as a volunteer blacksmith at the museum, and is known for his creative metal work and stationary engine float in the parades of the surrounding communities.

Dad and his daughter Louise had a very special relationship of caring for and looking after each other since Mom's death. Dad was able to live independently into his 90s because Louise was there to help him with his daily needs.

Dad was very proud of his grandchildren and their accomplishments. He will be remembered for his gentle and kind nature and his interest in their lives.

Dad was a lifelong active member of the Kleefeld EMC, where he was baptized July 25, 1954 and continued his personal relationship with his Lord, Jesus Christ, with whom he is now united.

Family thanks the medical staff at the Ste. Anne Hospital for their care of Dad during these last several weeks, with special thanks to Dr. De Moissac and Dad's nurse Joanne.

Memorial Service to be held Thursday, Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. at Cornerstone Bible Church (EMB), 290 First St., Steinbach

Helen Brandt (nee Janz) was born Sept. 5, 1909 in Steinbach, Man., the daughter of Rev. B.P. and Katherine Janz. She received her elementary and high school education in Steinbach and started teaching in Kleefeld, Man. at the age of 17. She attended Normal School to further her education and returned to teaching in Blumenhof and Steinbach. In 1932 she left for Chicago to attend Moody Bible Institute and came back to Winnipeg, Man., where she attended Winnipeg Bible College from 1933-35.

She and Henry Brandt were married in 1935 and in 1945 Mr Brandt was ordained into the ministry in the EMB Church. They were blessed with two sons - David, born 1938 and James in 1944. In 1954 they were called to pastor the EMB Church in Mountain Lake, Minn. In 1964, due to ill health, Rev. Brandt resigned his duties and he passed away in 1965.

Even though Helen was now widowed, she continued to be active in countless areas of Christian service. From 1965 to 1977 she moved to different places with her son David and his wife - working at Scripture Press in Chicago, at the State Hospital for the Mentally Handicapped in Norman, Okla., at the "Book Nook" in St Catharines, Ont., and the Book Store at Gordon College in North Boston. In 1977 she left for Vieques Island in Puerto Rico to help son James and his wife with mission work and also to tutor their children in English. She stayed for five years. In 1984 she moved to Harrisburg, Penn., where David was teaching at Messiah College and in 1986 Helen retired and went back to live in Mountain Lake. After an unbelievably active life she passed away Feb. 10, 2005.

In Steinbach she will be fondly remembered for the weekly Friday night children's meetings at the EMB Church, which she began in 1936 and continued summer and winter till 1954. Up to 200 children attended. They sang choruses, prayed and recited the Lord's Prayer, followed by an object lesson or short story. The highlight of the one hour meeting was the Bible story, usually given with film strips or slides, a very modern presentation for 1936. She was dearly loved by all the children, as well as by everyone who knew her. She was instrumental in many changed lives.

She leaves to mourn her passing, sons, David and James, their wives and families; sister Katherine Rieger; brothers, Alvin (Agnes), Art (Martini); sisters-in-law, Frieda Janz, Elma Rempel and many nieces and nephews.

Peacefully, July 22, 2005, with his wife and family by his side, Bill Hiebert (Wilhelm C. H.) of Steinbach, Man. went to be with his Lord at the age of 80 years.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father and grandfather, John Funk of Mitchell, Man., who passed away Monday morning, July 25, 2005 of congestive heart failure.

Dad was born March 12, 1933 to Franz R. and Katherina Funk in Grunthal, Man. He was a member and was baptized in the Chortitzer Mennonite Church in Grunthal.

He married our mother, Esther Doerksen, Sept. 4, 1960 and together they shared 45 years of wonderful memories, joys and sorrows.

A man of few words, Dad was the strong, silent type. He enjoyed a career of driving. Whether it was semis, buses, tractors, or even the riding lawn mower, he liked to be in the driver's seat.

His last job was driving school bus for the Hanover School Division, a post that he held until 1991, when he suffered and survived a severe heart attack.

Dad always had a passion for music. He enjoyed listening to country gospel and also listening to his brothers and sisters at the Funk gatherings. His favorite song was Serenaded by Angels, which he is now experiencing.

Dad was very proud of and loved all his grandchildren. They meant the world to him, and again, a man of few words, would get his point across by slipping them some cash. That was his way of saying "I love you."

Besides his loving wife, Esther, John will be lovingly remembered by his three daughters, Bev (Gregg) Halm of Strathclair, Man., Amanda (Ken) Kroeker and their children, Ken, Jacqueline and Jeremy of Brandon, Man., Pam Majure and her son Tony of Winnipeg, Man. He will also be missed by six brothers, five sisters, and their families.

Dad was predeceased by his parents, his brother Frank, his brother-in-law Peter Dyck and two nephews.

We, as a family, would like to thank Dr. Gordon Dyck, the Steinbach Bethesda Hospital and the Home Care staff for all their loving care. We would also like to thank the many family and friends for their support.

"You have run the race and now crossed the finish line. We love you, Dad."

The funeral service will be held Thursday, July 28, 2 p.m., at the Chortitzer Mennonite Church, 479 Hanover St., Steinbach, Man., with interment to follow at the Mitchell CMC Cemetery. If friends so desire donations may be made to the Parkinson Society, 204 - 825 Sherbrook St., Winnipeg, MB, R3A 1M5.

Monday, July 25, 2005, Maria Peters passed away peacefully at the age of 99 at her home, Bethesda Place, Steinbach, Man.

A funeral service will be held Friday, July 29, 2 p.m., at the Steinbach Mennonite Church, 345 Loewen Blvd., Steinbach, with Rev. Peter Harms and Pastor Gary Martens officiating. Interment will take place in the Steinbach Memorial Cemetery.

Viewing will be held at the Steinbach Funeral Home, 5 Chrysler Gate, Thursday, 7 to 8 p.m., and at the church prior to the service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of one's choice.

Besides one sister, Susie Enns, Maria is survived by six daughters: Katie Paetkau, Brooks, Alta.; Marie (John) Zacharias, Anola, Man.; Margaret (Werner) Pauls, Niverville, Man.; Helena Bewsky, Winnipeg, Man.; Susie Thiessen, Moose Jaw, Sask.; Elizabeth (David) Siemens, St. Andrews, Man.; six sons: Neil, Peter, Daniel (Judy), Frank, all of Winnipeg, Man.; David, Steinbach, Man.; and Henry (Irene), Leduc, Alta.; 24 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband, Cornelius F. Peters, March 19, 1977 and by 11 siblings, three sons-in-law, and one daughter-in-law.

Maria was born June 6, 1906, in the village of Schoenhorst, Russia. In 1925 she was baptized and accepted into membership of the Mennonite Church. In September of 1926 she immigrated to Canada with her mother and five siblings. She married Cornelius F. Peters on April 10, 1928 and they farmed in Greenridge, Man. until 1971, when they moved to Steinbach, Man. She spent many days at Steinbach Mennonite Village Museum spinning wool and sewed many quilts for MCC.

She visited Bangladesh, Florida, Germany, Egypt, Israel, and attended all her grandchildren's graduations across Canada. At the age of 79 she had surgery for a pituitary gland tumor and recovered remarkably to resume her active lifestyle for another 10 years. She was thankful that God saw fit to bless her in spite of her many weaknesses. Her greatest desire was that all her children would find salvation through Jesus Christ.

In 1998 she began to experience signs of dementia and in January 1999 she moved to Bethesda PCH. There she had a stroke in 2001, followed by another in 2004. The family is deeply grateful to the staff of Bethesda Place for the loving care they gave our mother for the last 6 1/2 years.
