WILFRED DREGER It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Wilfred Dreger at St. Boniface Hospital on Thursday, June 28, 2012, in his 82nd year. Wilf is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Olga; daughter Debra (Driss); son Richard; granddaughters Anisa and Sarah; sisters Margaret (Willie) Ludman, Evelyn (Clarence) Ratchinsky, Betty-Ann Kozak, Diane (Ron) Hince; brother Donald (Barbara), many nieces, nephews and other relatives. He was predeceased by his parents Elsie and Gotfried; brothers Ralph, Bryan and Howard. Wilf was born on a farm near Morris and moved to Winnipeg in 1959. He was employed with Northern Blower until his retirement in 1992. He was looking forward to celebrating his 60th year wedding anniversary this July. Wilf loved his million dollar family' as he called them and to them he passed his handyman expertise, his common sense approach to life and his joy of life. He enjoyed the many camping trips, his woodworking projects and the big project - building the cabin at the lake with much appreciated help from relatives and friends. A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, July 3 at 11:00 a.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street. Wilf left many memories for all of us and we will miss him greatly - he was a great father, grandfather, brother and friend to all who knew him. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. 586-8044
