IRMA ISABEL HILDEBRAND By editorial Wednesday, 19 November 2008 - 2:20pm. Obituaries It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Irma Isabel Hildebrand (nee Strain) on Friday, Nov. 14, 2008. She was born Aug. 24, 1936. Left to mourn is her husband of 49 years, Morgan; and sons, Lance (Laura), Todd (Camilla), and Jeff (Suki). She also leaves behind her cherished grandchildren, Sam and Asia. Irma and Morgan had a great life together. They met in Fort Frances, Ont. and raised their family in Ottawa, Ont. and Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. Twenty-two years ago, upon Morgan’s retirement from Environment Canada, they made the best decision of their lives; namely, to move to Nestor Falls, Ont. This led to many busy seasons managing Virgin Pine Camp. Eventually, they switched their attention to travel, journeying throughout Canada, parts of the United States, Hong Kong, and Japan. We all should be so fortunate to celebrate not only life’s big adventures, but also the ability to appreciate life’s smallest moments. For Irma, life also was at its best when a fish took the bait or when the garden first produced its bounty. The winter morning ritual of the feeding of the birds brought her great joy, as did her daily walks. She also was actively involved in the Nestor Falls United Church and the U.C.W. Another blessing was the fact that Irma was able to surround herself with good people who truly loved her. During her final days, Irma’s sister, Phyllis Dalseg, and husband, Jack, as well as sisters-in-law, Diedre and Hazel Strain, nephew, Chris Strain, and friend, Betty Batiuk, provided unparalleled compassion and support for Irma, Morgan, and the boys. Irma’s spiritual needs were well taken care of by Carl Emke, minister of the Nestor Falls United Church, Barb Miller, minister of Knox United Church in Fort Frances, and good friend, Rev. Peggy Mason. The Nestor Falls U.C.W. took care of nourishing the family through the provision of a wonderful meal. Similarly, the nursing and food services staff of La Verendrye Hospital went well beyond the expectations of their professions to ensure Irma and her family were well taken care of during this difficult time. There will be a celebration of Irma’s life early next summer, when friends and family from afar can attend. If so desired, donations may be made in Irma’s name to the Nestor Falls United Church Memorial Fund c/o Northridge Funeral Home, P.O. Box 89 Emo, Ont., P0W 1E0. Online condolences may be offered at
