Nieces and nephews who passed too soon. Joey was born May 17 1922 on the family homestead approximately 10 miles south of Morse. He attended both Wiebe and Ensz school. Dad was born on the farm and stayed on the farm except for a brief stint in '48 when he lived in Calgary to bring in some extra income. He discovered his partner in life through his sister Vi and on Ocober 12, 1957 he married Lisette Rodenberg of the Kinloch district. Mom and dad were a perfect compliment to each other. They worked well together both on and off the farm. Dad was a member of the Elks Club for 50+ years and during the years the club room was open they enjoyed socializing with neighbors and friends. Weekly visits with the Grinders and frequently meeting up with the Tangens in either Swift Current or Stewart Valley. Pride in family, love of the land, see the humor in life, these are the legacies that our father left us. Entering long term care is a major change in life, but the staff at Mankota Care Center and later the Meadows in Swift Current, eased the transition. Special thanks to the friends and the care givers of House 22 who made Dad's last years enjoyable. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
