In Memory of my brother Ernst Hiebert

Ernst (Toews) Hiebert, age 63, of Winnipeg Manitoba passed away peacefully on Wednesday September 15, 2021 at his home. He has struggled with health issues in the past 14 years and was set free from his body of suffering, to enter eternal rest.

Ernst is survived by 3 Children (Crystal, Tracy and Randy) and Grandchildren, 5 siblings (Richard, Rudolf, Hilda (Penny), Alma and Bruno). Ernst was predeceased by his father on November 18, 1986 and his mother on July 10, 2021

Ernst was born July 30, 1958 in Loma Plata, Paraguay. He was the 3rd eldest child of Gerhard and Elisabeth (Toews) Hiebert. He spent his childhood years in Paraguay and immigrated to Canada at the age of 17 with his parents and siblings in 1976. He has worked at Palliser Furniture for 25 years as a forklift operator and retired at the age of 50 due to illness

Ernst was a very hardworking man and a good provider for his family. He started working at a very young age to help out his parents. He always had something funny up his sleeve and loved to play tricks on his brothers, sisters and his friends. He adored his children and grandkids. No matter how difficult and lonely his life was, he always stayed positive and enjoyed his independence. To pass some of his time, he would do word search puzzles and listened to country gospel music.

Ernst loved his hobby farm out in Anola, Manitoba. He had a few pigs, chickens, Geese, Pigeons and other animals at his farm. After he came home from work, he would go feed all his animals and talk to them, they were part of his family too.

Ernst will be sadly missed by his siblings and his Children.

We wish to thank his sister Hilda (Penny) for helping him in the last few months and checking on him daily.

A private cremation has taken place and a private memorial service will be held in the near future. Instead of flowers we ask you, perform an act of kindness for someone.
