WOLDEMAR (BILL) EDIGER Woldemar (Bill) Ediger passed away peacefully on March 2, 2013 at Grace Hospital. He is survived by his son, Walter (Barb) Ediger, daughter Marlene (Bruce) Quesnel, son James Ediger and granddaughter, Angela and husband Herbert Quesnel-Strasser. He also is survived by numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife Margaret, his parents, Abram and Anna Ediger, sisters Mary and Elsie and brothers Abe and Jack. Woldemar Ediger was born in Alexandrodar, Russia on January 27, 1921. The Ediger family moved to Canada in 1926 and lived in Winnipeg, Poplarfield and Oakland before settling on the farm north of High Bluff around 1930. He worked as an orderly at Winnipeg General in the 1940s. After his Dad's death in 1944, he took over running the farm. In 1946, he married Margaret Falk and they raised their three children. In 1959, the family moved to Portage la Prairie. He worked at MDC until 1967. In 1967, the family moved to Winnipeg. He worked at the Grace Hospital as an orderly and later as dark room technician until his retirement in1986. He also worked at Boeing of Canada from 1973 until 1975. Woldemar was one who lived by his lifelong motto "to leave a trail from your life". He could be found snowblowing driveways along the street just to make life easier for his neighbours. He was always willing to help you if he was able and always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. He will be sorely missed by his family and those that he knew. A special thanks to the staff at Grace Hospital for their excellent care during this last stay. Cremation has already taken place and a memorial service will be held on Friday, March 8, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at Friends Funeral Service, 2146 Main Street, Winnipeg. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of one's choice in Woldemar's memory would be appreciated.
