Obituary – Jerry Hildebrand, former EMMC Director of Missions
Gerhard “Jerry” Hildebrand, 87, of Winkler, Manitoba died on July 12, 2016 at Boundary Trails Health Centre. He suffered a stroke on Friday, July 9 and was immediately taken to the hospital. Deep appreciation goes to the doctors, nurses and staff at Boundary Trails Health Centre for their professional and compassionate care.
He was ordained as an Evangelical Mennonite Missions Conference (EMMC) minister on June 26, 195. Jerry served as the Missions director for the EMMC from 1976 until 1985.
Jerry and Marjorie served as volunteers with Mennonite Central Committee in Aylmer, Ontario working with Low German Mennonites from Mexico. They returned to Winkler where Jerry served as associate pastor at the EMMC church. After his retirement in 2003 he continued to teach Bible classes and studies, worked with the Evangelical Anabaptist Fellowship and with Marjorie at the Winkler Heritage Society
The funeral will be at the Winkler EMMC Church 600 Southview Drive at 2:00 p.m. on Friday July 15, 2016 with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, if you so desire, donations may be made in Jerry’s memory to Evangelical Anabaptist Fellowship in person after the service. You may also donate online at canadahelps.org
