Lillian died peacefully at Freeport Hospital on Thursday, Dec. 15, 2022, to be with her Lord and Saviour. A loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister, Lillian was predeceased by her beloved husband of 68 years Peter Dyck in 2019, her son at birth, son-in-law Albert Friesen, her parents Nicholas and Louise Fehderau, her siblings Harold Fehderau and Elenore Neufeld-Fast, and brother-in-law Jake Willms. Lillian offered a wonderful example to her family of Christian service, both in the church and in her community.  Kitchener MB Church (KMB) appreciated all the ways Lillian contributed musically – initially accompanying the church choir in 1947 and then serving on the piano and organ at church services, weddings, and funerals for more than 50 years. Lillian volunteered for many years at KMB’s Vacation Bible School and at Mennonite Central Committee’s Ten Thousand Villages in Kitchener. Throughout her life, Lillian cherished good friendships and nurtured them. Lillian’s quiet-and-steadfast faith in God shaped her own life and influenced the lives of those around her in so many wonderful ways.  Her family experienced her daily prayers and is forever grateful for the way she cared for them her entire life, demonstrating her close walk with God as her Lord and Saviour. God has blessed her family over the past 91 years with this woman, Lillian L. Dyck. And now their Heavenly Father takes pleasure in having Lillian join him in her new eternal home.
