On November 27, 2020, age 80, Ed (Erdman) Heppner, of Rosenfeld, Manitoba, peacefully left his earthly home and entered his heavenly reward.
He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Diane Heppner, 5 children - Rick Heppner, Wayne Heppner, Debi Schroeder (Jack), Ken Heppner and Gerry Heppner (Tammy Breyfogle), five grandchildren, his siblings Henry Heppner and Helen Wiebe and many nieces and nephews. Dad was predeceased by his parents Henry and Helena Heppner and siblings Anton, Jake, Abe, George, Mary, Catherine, and Justina.
Dad lived a full life. For years he worked construction and farmed. He loved and was much loved by his entire family. He was a very social man, enjoying kibitzing with coworkers, friends and family.
Dad was diagnosed with cancer 5 years ago, and as the years passed, the cancer metastasized further.
We, the family, would like to thank Dr. Gingerich (HSC Cancer Care), Dr. Dahla (BTHC Cancer Care), Dr. Basta and the staff at the Altona Hospital for the care given to dad.
A private burial has taken place, at the Hochstadt Cemetery.
Donations may be made to the BTHC Cancer Care.
