Jacob Eldon Dueck, my loving husband, our father, grandfather. great grandfather, and brother was born to Isaac J and Marianna Nightingale on August 27, 1931, at Steinbach, Manitoba. At the age of two he was graciously and lovingly received into the home of David P. and Gertrude Dueck near Ste. Anne. He departed this life peacefully at the Maplewood Manor on August 12, 2022, due to a stroke.

Dad gave his heart to the Lord and was baptized into the Church of God in Christ on December 10, 1944, by minister John B. Koehn. He loved the Lord and was faithful to the end. His favorite song was “What a Friend we have in Jesus”. As children we are thankful for the secure home he provided. His desire was that we all meet in Heaven someday.

On July 25, 1957, he was joined in marriage to Anne Goossen at Rosenort, Manitoba and enjoyed over 65 years together. Their home was blessed with 8 children. Dad’s quiet, contented manner pointed others to Jesus and His forgiveness.

Dad enjoyed talking of school days, farming with horses and bush camp experiences. Grain farming and selling seed grain provided for the family. He farmed for 51 years including several years after moving to the town of Ste. Anne. He looked forward to family and friends stopping by. Working on his wood lathe in the shop and feeding the wild geese along the river were favorite pastimes. He enjoyed reading his Bible and books as well as being part of the Rosewood congregation.

He leaves to mourn his beloved wife Anne, children; Ron and Janice, Lavonne, Warren and Lorrie, Russ, Lana and Rick, Brian and Lydia, Sherri and Matt, Ken and Leudy, 21 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, his sisters Marjorie and Norma, sisters-in-law Anna Nightingale and Edda Nightingale; in-laws Ella and Gladwin Penner, Victor Goossen and Percy Goossen.

He was predeceased by his parents, siblings John, Eddie, Albert, Mary, Mathilda, Louis and Ike.
