Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Our family send our deepest condolences. My husband and I spent some wonderful moments sharing time with Uncle Charlie and Auntie Joyce at the lake in the late 1950’s. Uncle Charlie always had a story to share or a joke to play and made the visits so memorable. So very sad to hear of his passing. May he rest peacefully in God’s loving embrace. Love from Liz Zutz and family (Vancouver). - Posted by: Elizabeth Zutz (Niece ) on: Nov 20, 2017

  • Sincere condolences to Joyce, Rick and Norine, Don and Susan and all their families. Our first memories of Charlie were at the Ashern Curling rink. The Yanke family always had a family rink entered in the bonspiels and won many prizes I am sure. Larry always talked about his visits with Charlie out in the bush in hunting season. I am sure you will all have many fond memories to cherish. RIP Charlie. - Posted by: Larry and Karen Williamson () on: Nov 20, 2017

  • Uncle Charlie stayed with my Mom (Olga), Dad. (Charles ) and all the family when I a very little girl. We lived on Union Ave in Winnipeg. He was working in Winnipeg and lived with us. I loved him then and for all my life. Aunty Joyce and Uncle Charlie shared a beautiful family and were a perfect match. Like my parents, they were soul mates. I will miss him, he is with his parents, brothers and sisters and all the relatives now. They look over us all until we meet again. My sincere condolences to the family, - Posted by: Karen Wareing McMillan (Neice) on: Nov 20, 2017
