Kathleen Helen Dyck (nee Heppner) passed away on December 8, 2011.
Kathleen was born in Melba Manitoba on September 19, 1923, the daughter of Anthony and Katherina Heppner.
At the age of 19, Kathleen married Harold Dyck and were together until his passing in 2004. For the most of the last 43 three years they shared a home on Chilliwack Mountain, watching the sunsets cast on the Fraser River.
Kathleen was a woman of immense love for Jesus and a faith which grew stronger in times of hardship.The other great love of her life was her husband whom she eagerly anticipated seeing again.
Kathleen is survived by her daughter Eileen Wiens; son Russel (Ingrid) Dyck; grandchildren: Brad (Niki) Wiens, Carl (Gwenn) Russel, Karen (Shawn) Unger; and great-grandchildren, Jessica, Mark, Kyra, Wyatt, Kaitlyn, Jocelyn and Curtis; and her sister Rosella (Vic) Schultz.
We all miss her strength and love.
