Ida Alma Hohn
April 9, 1930 ~ May 30, 2023 (age 93) 93 Years Old
Peacefully with family by her side, Ida Alma Hohn (nee Eisner) went to her heavenly home on May 30, 2023, at the Swan Valley Health Centre.
Ida was born on a beautiful, sunny day on April 9, 1930, in Minitonas, Manitoba. She was born on her sister Olga’s 9th birthday, and they spent many birthdays celebrating together. Birthdays were always special to Ida, and she loved to celebrate everyone’s birthday, especially hers as long as it was not a surprise! She celebrated 93 birthdays!
Ida grew up on a farm in the Craigford area, attended school there and First Baptist Church in Minitonas. In June 1943, Ida accepted Christ as her Saviour. She started mornings by reading her Bible and praying for the people she loved and cared about, which was everyone she knew. After finishing her schooling, she attended CTI Bible School in Edmonton, and it was during this time that letter writing started between Ida, and Hartley Hohn. Once she returned home, the relationship continued and on April 26, 1950, Ida married the love of her life. Together they took over the family farm just outside of Swan River, Manitoba, building their life, raising three beautiful children, and honouring Christ. A testament to their love, Ida and Hartley celebrated 52 years of marriage before Hartley was called to home to God in 2003.
Ida loved people and cooking, and spending time with family and friends. There were always cookies in the cookie jar, a meal on the table if you stopped in, and she always made you feel welcomed and loved. Whether at the farm, or her apartment in town, she always loved having company and visiting.
Ida enjoyed gardening, and in the early years on the farm, she had a beautiful flower garden in the front yard that people driving by would often stop and admire. Equally admirable was her back yard haven, where she spent many hours caring for her vegetable garden that provided bountifully for family and friends.
Ida was predeceased by her husband Hartley (2003), and daughter Vivian (2014); parents Lydia and Reinhart Eisner, sister Olga and Adolph Semler, brother Adolf and Alice Lenz, parents-in-law Teofil and Holdine, and brothers-in-law Ed Hohn and Walter Hohn.
Ida loved and enjoyed her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She leaves to cherish her memory her son Gord (Deb) Hohn, and daughter Brenda (Rick) Lehmann; grandchildren Darryl Kisiloski, Sandra (Joel) Cadieux, Deanna (Ben) Andres, Jeremy (Colette) Hohn, Josh (Brooke) Hohn, Dale Lehmann, Victoria (Bryce) Siemens, and Troy Lehmann, along with 13 precious great grandchildren.
Also treasuring her memory are sister Violet (Walter) Redlick, Dianne (Wes) Dyck, sister-in-law Manetta Hohn, sister-in-law Olga Hohn, and many, many nieces, and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Swan Valley Health Centre for Ida’s care over her last two months.
