1922 ~ Joseph “Joe” Heidinger ~ 2020

Joe Heidinger of Medicine Hat went to be with his Lord and Saviour on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at the age of 98 years, just 13 days after his beloved Anna. He leaves to cherish his memory, his daughter, Darlene (Don) Adolf, his sons Bruce (Cathie) Heidinger, Glen (Natalie) Heidinger and Randy (Wendy) Heidinger; twelve grandchildren, Donalyn (Brian) Hotrum, Shelley (Cory) Strobel, Mark (Dana) Adolf, Lisa (Blake) Dykema, Lori (Nathan) Girling, Jamie (Matt) Dawson, Brian (Kristen) Heidinger, Brandon (Sara) Heidinger, Corinna (Logan) Unreiner, Brodie (Cheryl) Heidinger, Sara (Brandon) Hilgendorf and Connor Heidinger; eighteen great grandchildren Kayla (Mac) Myers, Maria Daniels, Melissa Strobel, Ben and Eli Adolf, Slater and Sloan Dykema, Reed and Kierra Girling, Autym, Zayda, Mikaya and Rhylan Dawson, Georgia and Joseph Heidinger, Nixon and Ryker Heidinger, Aria Unreiner; his brothers-in-law, Al Kirk, Tony Heck; and sisters-in-law Rose Heidinger, Doreen Heck, Helen Aberle; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his wife of 74 years, Anna Heidinger; his parents, Martha and John Heidinger; and his parents-in-law, John and Agatha Heck; his three brothers Clarence, Ruben and Edwin; three sisters, Viola Seitz, Alice Kurpjuweit, Pearl Kirk along with sisters-in-law Mandy Hunt, Clara Heidinger, Ann Heck, Agnes Heck, and brothers-in-law Ed Seitz, Art Kurpjuweit, Joe, Jack, Phillip, Dan and Frank Heck, Kasper Aberle, and grandson-in-law, Dallas Daniels.

Joe was born and raised on a farm around Gros Ventre, Alberta. He worked at the Dominion Glass Factory in Redcliff for over 40 years. He was known for lending a hand to family and friends when asked; he loved making friends wherever he went and always found a way to be distantly related to them. He was handy in repairing appliances, making jewellery boxes, dog houses, macraméing clothes hangers by the dozens and vacationing, first in a tent, then trailer and later, travelling the world. He especially enjoyed listening to Tiger’s Hockey on his radio and he never missed his children’s or grandchildren’s events, sporting or otherwise.

The family wish to express thanks to Brandi from Home Care and the staff at Wellington Retirement Residence.

A private family graveside funeral service will take place at Hillside Cemetery with Pastor Lance Duncalfe Officiating.
