Edmund Winter passed away at Pioneer House, Lloydminster, Alberta on Saturday, March 5, 2022 at the age of 95 years.
Ed is lovingly remembered and survived by: his wife, Norah Winter; brother, Alvin Winter; seven children, Sandra Davidson (Bill), Darryl Winter (Donna-Marie), Donald Winter (Marian), Shiela Vokins (Dick), Blain Winter (Tracy), Beverley Shauer (Dave) and Norris Winter (Cheryl); son-in-law, Sean Campbell; and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Ed was predeceased by: his daughter, Brenda Campbell; parents, Berthold and Emma Winter; sisters, Lena Winter, Helena Esau and Leona Sawatzky.
Edmund was born in Wedenstal, Russia on June 30, 1926 and immigrated to Canada with his parents in August of 1926. They settled in the Lashburn area and established the family farm. Edmund attended the Burke country school and worked alongside his father on the farm.
He married the love of his life, Norah Ellis, on October 24, 1951 in Lashburn, SK and they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in the fall of 2021. They bought the family farm where they raised their 8 children. Ed and Norah were active members of First Baptist Church in Lloydminster since 1953, where Ed served as a Deacon, sang in the choir, and taught Sunday school.
Ed’s hobbies included bowling, floor-curling, fishing and building. Music was also a big part of Ed’s life and is something he shared and passed down to all his children. Ed and Norah enjoyed time spent travelling to places including Thailand, Germany, Haiti, England, Alaska, Costa Rica, and the USA. During the summer months, Ed and Norah could be found camped at Ministikwan Lake, where they spent time on their boat, fishing with friends and family - often their grandkids.
