October 17, 1925 – December 1, 2020
The family of Justina Dyck are saddened to announce her passing on December 1st. Tina was born on the family farm near Osler, Saskatchewan to parents Peter and Aganetha Wiebe on 17 October 1925, the second of an eventual nine children. She passed away at the age of 95 in Rotary Hospice House, Prince George, BC.
She married Cornelius Dyck in 1950 and they, like so many of their generation, moved to British Columbia, with infant daughter Sylvia, the following year.
Corney and Tina established in Burns Lake, BC and added two more daughters, Donna and Darlene to their family. Corney spent most of his working career operating his cartage business, C Dyck Transfer, while Tina supported the business and was a homemaker.
During the nearly six decades Tina lived in Burns Lake, she enjoyed her garden, the occasional fishing trip, and playing cards in the community and with family. In later years, she embraced her volunteer role at the Thrift Shop.
Her card playing continued in the last few years, after she moved to Prince George to be near two of her daughters. In particular, she enjoyed the Wednesday night Whist at the Brunswick Street Seniors’ Centre, always in the company of at least one of her daughters, sometimes all three.
Tina was predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Corney, in 2003. She was also predeceased by siblings Anna, Dick, and Cornelius, and Son-in-law Norman Hudon.
She is survived by siblings John, Mary, Ben, Martin, and Hilda; Daughters Sylvia (Dan) Gilgan, Donna (Alvaro) Mena, and Darlene Hudon, as well as five grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
Plans for a memorial gathering are on hold until an appropriate time.
The family wishes to acknowledge the outstanding medical care Justina received at UHNBC over many illnesses in recent years. In particular, we would thank Doctors Ferreira and Fell of Two Rivers Medical and Northern Health nurses Janyce and Kathleen who provided compassionate and professional care during Tina’s recent decline.
We would also like to thank the wonderful staff at Rotary Hospice House who supported Tina and family at the end.
