July 14, 1933-June 11, 2018

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Jake Hildebrandt.

He was predeceased by three brothers, two sisters and one great-grandchild.

Jake is survived by his loving wife, Susan, of 63 years; seven children; nine grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

Jake was born in the Montcalm municipality and spent his younger years on the farm in Stuartburn, MB.

With the help of his brothers John and Abe, he was able to pursue his goal of becoming a teacher. His teaching career spanned 33 years, the majority of which were spent in Vita, MB.

Father was active in the community: sitting as President of the Vita Credit Union for 16 years, volunteering on the Vita Fire Department for 18 years, and acting as secretary-treasurer of the Game & Fish Club.

Father loved the outdoors and experiencing nature. In his later years, snowmobiling and rearranging his garage were his passions.

Funeral services will be held at the Stuartburn Sommerfeld Mennonite Church on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 2 p.m. with interment at the Old Sommerfeld Cemetery following lunch.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to CancerCare.

Arrangements by Korban Funeral Chapel.
