We are gathered here today to celebrate the life of Mona Tiedeman who passed from this life on August 3rd, 2019.
Mona was born to Paul and Margaret Giverhaug on September 11th, 1940 and grew up and attended school at Eastend, Sask. Mom then graduated and met her soul mate Rodger Tiedeman at a dance in the District. He instantly fell in love with her beautiful legs and soon to follow her beautiful face and soul. She always stated that her legs were always her main attraction at dances and remained that way all through her life.
On April 10th, 1959, Mona married Rodger Tiedeman Eastend, SK, and of this union had four children, Bradley, Brent, and the twins, Diane and Dale. She enjoyed her family and everything she did was for them. She decided to stay at home to raise her children and be with them as they grew and flourished. She was a quiet soul but did have a great sense of humor; however, she could discipline especially when she said “I will tell your father”; we then quickly listened. Her smile and giggles warmed everyone’s heart.
In 1974, Mona moved alongside Rodger and her family up North to La Ronge where she continued to raise her family until 1979 where she then decided to enter the workforce at the La Ronge Medical Clinic. She continued to work there until the family moved to Nipawin in the fall of 1980. Shortly after the twins graduated, Mona and Rodger transferred back to La Ronge where she got back onto the medical clinic. Rodger then retired in 1987 and Mona continued to work at the La Ronge Medical Clinic until they decided to move back to Nipawin in 1995. Mom then took a position at the Nipawin Medical Clinic and within two years decided to retire.
Mona then enjoyed being with her grandchildren and being active in the Royal Purple. Mona also very much enjoyed her winter vacations in Yuma, Arizona where she had great fellowship with friends and fellow Canadians. They also enjoyed travelling to various locations to escape the Canadian winters. Mom also loved cooking and baking for all that enjoyed; which was everyone. Her house was always show home ready and every drawer was very neatly done and organized.
Mona was predeceased by her mother and father Margaret and Paul Giverhaug. She is survived by her children Brad (Dianne) Tiedeman, Brent (Sheila) Tiedeman and their two children Blake and Shelby, Diane (Darin) Lonson and their two children Liane (Matthew) and Paige; Dale (Nancy) Tiedeman and their two children Emily and Hanna; her sister Judy Grobowsky; Brother-In-law Jim (Evie) Tiedeman; Brother-In-Law George Tiedeman; Sister-In-Law Linda (John) Baker and numerous nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
Mona will be forever remembered and loved; she was a wonderful Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Auntie and Friend. Rest in Peace Mom and may your legs dance forever in the heavens.
