Obituary

HENRY BERGMANN
November 2, 1941 - March 21, 2021

Peacefully at home and surrounded by love, Henry Bergmann went to be with his eternal Saviour in heaven.

Henry will forever be cherished by his loving wife of 55 years Susan, children Dave (Susan) and their son Josh, John (Wendy) and their children Caleb, Hannah, Avery and Megan, Kristine Haberman (Craig) and their children Nicholas, Jack and Maggie, Dianne Thomas (Shawn) and their children Ruby and Ben. He was predeceased by his oldest grandson Jesse in 2015. Henry will be lovingly remembered as a devoted husband, loving father, caring grandpa, loyal brother, uncle and friend.

Dad was born to Alfred and Justina Bergmann of Glenlea and grew up and worked on the farm with his brothers for 70 years. Dad accepted Jesus into his life at an early age and was baptized upon confession of his faith in Jesus when he was thirteen years old. He married his elementary school sweetheart, Susie Wiens in 1965 and together, they established a safe home full of love and warmth. Dad worked hard and selflessly to build a life for his family and farming was a passion of his until his dying days. Dad was a man of integrity; his yes was always yes and his no was no. He strove to treat others with grace and kindness, always quick to offer an encouraging word.

Dad was fervent in sharing God’s love with others. He served faithfully in church, taught religion classes and distributed Bibles for the Gideons. More than anything though, Dad had a passion for people and built relationships with them - be that with drivers that came to the farm, gas bar attendants, the cashiers at Superstore, through volunteer work at Pembina Place and Riverwood Square or his neighbours, Dad cared about others and wanted them to know Jesus’ deep love for them.

Dad and Mom moved off the farm and into Winnipeg in 2011. Their new home always had an open door and given that all kids and grandkids were within a five kilometer radius, many more relaxed meals, visits and conversations happened over the past ten years. Thankfully, Dad still could visit the farm regularly and stay up to date with all the happenings there.

In late 2014, Dad was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and in the summer of 2020, Dad’s health took a steady decline. God blessed us with a few additional unexpected months with Dad and he and Mom quickly established a new morning routine. This involved drinking coffee in bed, reading scripture and praying together - all while holding hands and enjoying time together. Their commitment was solid and beautiful, rooted in God’s goodness and love, and we are grateful for Dad's example and legacy. He was a pillar of the faith, a cheerleader for his kids and grandkids and a prayer warrior for so many. He will be dearly missed.

As a family, we are thankful for all the support and care we have received from our extended and church families, friends, neighbours and health care providers.

A private memorial service is planned at Friends Funeral Service on Saturday, March 27 at 2:00 pm, followed by a committal service at the Glenlea Cemetery. The service will be live-streamed and can be viewed by following the links at https://www.friendsfs.ca/ .

If anyone wishes, donations can be made in Dad’s memory to The Gideons Canada (https://www.gideons.ca/give/other-giving-options/shop-expressions) or the Canadian Food Grains Bank (https://foodgrainsbank.ca/) .

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

While working for the Bergmann brothers as a veterinarian, I was quickly immersed onto their team. As Henry explained, just as there were many spokes an a wheel to make it function, many others besides themselves were important to make their farm work.He once asked me if he could call me by my first name rather than doctor because it seemed more personal while assuring me that he meant no disrespect for my veterinary degree.
His enthusiasm, dedication and sense of humour were evident as we performed routine tasks or emergency cases such as delivering calves or treating milk fevers. Since Henry did the artificial inseminations for the dairy, he was very interested to know if those cows and heifers became pregnant or if he needed to improve his technique. He would often say that although the dairy barn was old, the care and nutrition for the animals could be the best available.
Once the dairy portion of the farming operation ceased, I would see him infrequently and yet always received a smile and had a friendly conversation.
I appreciated the ability to watch the online service and I know Henry will be in my memories forever. Dr. Ken Johnson

Susan & Family:
I have fond memories of being a High School classmate of Henry's at MBCI, as well as working together on para church committees. His integrity, sincerity and friendly demeanor was contagious. He truly lived a purpose-driven life and finished well. What a gift to have been a small part of his life! May the reality of Heaven give you peace and the tender touch of the Father give you comfort as you rebuild your lives around the huge void that he has left. Jake & Eleanor Dueck

I am so grateful for the times I got to visit with Henry Bergmann. He was always so loving and kind to me - I enjoyed his visits to FGMB to say 'hi' and bring some flowers! He always had a big smile and a big hug when we saw each other. He was just a sweet man. Our deepest condolences on your loss. - Bernie and Tammy Rempel

I was just sharing with my kids how Mr. Bergmann always had treats in his suit jacket pocket for us kids at church. I will forever remember how he always made sure to tell me, "You're a good kid!". Sweet memories. Lots of love to you as you grieve. Janice Regier Poettcker
