His boss suggested that Mom fly out to spend time with him. Dad said when the float plane docked, the last person off was the most beautiful woman in the world. And he always felt that way about her.
Kristine, Dad’s favorite daughter, was born on December 1, 1955. Jack, his #1 son, was born on March 8, 1958 and Bob, his surprise blessing, was born on January 5, 1970.
Mom’s faith and strong will were necessary to raise their children while Dad was away from home for weeks at a time. Dad’s surveying and construction skills, as well as his ability to bring people together, contributed to the completion of many town projects.
Dad accepted Jesus as his Savior, giving his life to the Lord, and was baptized on December 7, 1954 in the Altona Bergthaler Church.

Dad was the oldest of 7, having 2 brothers and 4 sisters. He always looked out for them. Even after heading out on his own, Dad often sent home money or gifts for the family.
Dad enjoyed school, especially English and history, and was involved in many school dramas. He was editor of the school newspaper, which he named the ‘Magnum Opus’, the Great Work. Dad was interested in becoming a journalist, but family circumstances led to his leaving school after grade 11 to begin working.
Throughout his school years Dad always kept busy making some extra cash. He mowed lawns, hauled ice from the river, shot and collected gopher tails, and worked for various farmers and uncles. He learned many valuable lessons. One such lesson was: Confirm your wages before beginning a job. On one occasion, after working several weeks for a farmer, Dad received one large sack of hazel nuts. As you can imagine, he was not pleased. To avoid lugging the heavy sack, Dad hitch-hiked home. The result? Several weeks wages lost after the man who gave him a lift took the hazel nuts as payment.
After leaving school Dad worked mainly in construction. addyfb83f66f8b5a238955d2f945ad7aeb0b = addyfb83f66f8b5a238955d2f945ad7aeb0b + 'wiebefuneralhomes' + '.' + 'com'; Viewing will be at Wiebe Funeral Home Altona on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 6 and 7 from 1:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Wiebe Funeral Home Altona Ltd 216 Centre Ave E, Altona, MB 1-204-324-5404 Send flowers When he came home, Dad wanted us to update him on everything that he had missed. Dad wanted all of us, including his grandchildren to grow up to be strong in faith, independent in thought, and skilled and diligent in our work.
Mom and Dad loved travelling together, whether it was a long journey to Phoenix or a shopping trip to Winkler. Whether you have come to our site for information about an upcoming service or to make arrangements for one, we hope the information you find here will be helpful. Dad truly appreciated and loved them as well.
Dad loved visits he received from family, friends and church family members. Dad had a special place in his heart for his grandchildren and three special great-grandchildren. These were his favorite visitors.
The COVID-19 pandemic, with restricted visits, made for a difficult time for Dad. Once the weather warmed up, and outdoor visits were allowed, Dad fully enjoyed seeing his family again. Please pray for Eastview Residents and Staff as well as all other personal care homes during this difficult time.
We, as a family, are thankful for the compassionate care Dad received from the Eastview Staff. He considered both the Eastview Residents and Staff as part of his family.
Dad’s faith increased as his health decreased. Even while going through difficulties of his own, Dad prayed with and comforted his fellow residents. Jesus was the answer for any problem he or others might have. The Lord provides.
Dad’s character and faith remained strong to the end. After rapidly declining health, Dad entered his heavenly rest on September 25.
A private funeral service was held at the Gretna Bergthaler Church with interment at the Gretna Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Jack may be made to the Gretna Bergthaler Church, or to Eastview Place.
What a great way to travel and get paid for doing it. In the last years, Dad enjoyed rides in the Gretna, Altona, Winkler area, reminiscing and acting as tour guide. A highlight was stopping at Dave and Rita’s to catch up on local current events.
Dad liked to curl and golf. He always enjoyed a round of golf with his brothers, sons or grandsons at the Oakview Golf Course, where he was a member.
Dad was an avid reader, which, together with his countless experiences, resulted in a wealth of knowledge. His interest in politics and current events led him to be a lifelong reader of the print newspaper.
Mom and Dad thought they would live in Gretna until that day when they would die together in a spectacular car crash. Those of us who drove with Mom thought that just might happen. You can still show your support by sending flowers directly to the family, or plant a tree in memory of Jack Toews. There are no events scheduled.
