He liked to travel and enjoyed trips to Mexico, Cuba and the U. S. with his wife Pat. Always a music enthusiast George loved to play the drums and instilled this passion in his kids, nephews and grandkids. If he didn’t have a set of drums a pair of spoons would do! He competed as a roller dancer with his sister in his early years and enjoyed dancing to all kinds of music ( including the Macarena!). George was a great friend to all, he was outgoing and fun and loved to socialize with friends and family usually over a glass of whiskey ( or four). No formal Funeral Service will be held.

Rudy is survived by his daughters Lisa ( Mark) Lange, Rena ( Chris) Hegele and Donna ( Ron) Knopf, grandchildren Kevin ( Rosanna), Kenny ( Lauren), Kaitlyn ( Mark), Steven ( Chelsea), Shelby ( Kyle), Jenna and Travis, great- grandchildren Leah, Preston and Logan, sister, Ella ( Chuck), brother George ( Eunice). He was predeceased by his brother Henry. Rudy was born in Germany on March 25, 1927 to Rudolf and Martha Kunkel. They immigrated from Germany to River Hills, Manitoba. They later moved to Lydiatt where he met the love of his life, Ethel. Dad and mom married October 21, 1950. They moved to Winnipeg in 1960 where dad got a job with Blue Ribbon Bus Lines and later for Winnipeg Transit where he worked for 19 years. They moved in 1974 with their three daughters back to Lydiatt where they had a hobby farm. Dad found he could make extra money with all the peat moss on the farm. He hauled many loads of peat moss to Winnipeg. Dad’s next venture was taking on a job as a cement truck driver. His last position was with Beausejour Redi- Mix. He worked there until he was 74 years old. You could tell how much he loved his job and the people he worked with from the stories he told. And how he loved to take his grandchildren along for a ride in the cement truck. Mom quite often accompanied dad on some of the longer drives to job sites. One of dad’s passions was rebuilding the 1921 Model T. Mom and dad drove all over Manitoba looking for parts. Piece by piece they worked on putting the car together. They would often talk about the drives they went on picking up parts and the hours put in to it. They did everything on it right down to upholstering the leatherette top to the seats. Daddy enjoyed puttering and he could fix anything. He enjoyed playing his guitar, hunting, ice fishing and the outdoors. His seven grandchildren were the joy of his life. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for them. He was so proud of all of them and his face would light up as soon as he would see them and as soon as they would see him you could hear them call out “ Papa!” and they would race into his open arms. Dad went to church on a very regular basis and spent many terms on the church council in the St. John Lutheran Church in Lydiatt. He later joined the Zion Lutheran Church with mom. His Bible, which is well worn, was always open on the kitchen table along with his copy of the Daily Devotions. Dad will be greatly missed by many. We take comfort in knowing that mom and dad are together again for eternity. Funeral service will be held on Thursday, August 27 at 12: 00 p. m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel with Pastor Bart Coleman officiating. Interment will be in the Zion Lutheran Cemetery at 5: 00 p. m. Pallbearers will be dad’s grandsons, Kevin M. Lange, Kenny Lange, Steven Greschuk and Travis Knopf. In lieu of flowers, if friends and family so desire, donations in his memory may be made to Zion Lutheran Church, Box 968, 403 First Street North, Beausejour, MB, R0E 0C0.

Emily was born on February 24, 1929 at Hnausa, MB. She was the oldest child and grew up on a family farm in Vidir. As a young girl she went to Portage la Prairie to complete her high school education. She taught as a permit teacher at the Sylvan School. She then attended Normal School to complete her teacher training. It was in Sylvan where she met our Dad and they were married on July 5, 1952. She taught at Sylvan and Vestri Schools until she decided that she wanted to raise her family and help Dad on the farm. Mom was a woman of many talents. She loved creating beautiful wedding and birthday cakes. She could be found in her sewing room or in her recliner knitting. We have many treasured creations such as Icelandic sweaters, mitts, quilts, and afghans. She took pride in her Icelandic heritage and was a valued member of the Vidir Ladies Aid for many years. Her caring personality and love of company was evident, and being invited for coffee and cookies was a guarantee. In the summer she spent many hours tending to her flowers and garden. Her greatest treasures were her children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren. She took great interest in their lives and attended their special events when she was able. Her grandchildren will honour her by acting as her pallbearers. When the Parkinson disease became worse she moved to Arborg Assisted Living where she could spend more time with her siblings and their families. She also re- kindled old friendships and acquired new friends. Thank you to those special people at Assisted Living, her home- care workers, and all family and friends who kept her safe, and supported her independence. We would like to thank Dr. Hobson ( her neurologist), Dr. Ishak and the other doctors and staff at Arborg Hospital who showed her care and respect in her last few months.
