Date of Passing: Aug 24, 2019Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
His farm produced cereal crops, trees, fruit and vegetables. Wilfred was justifiably proud of his yard and garden. He kept relatives and visitors amply supplied with saskatoons, raspberries, strawberries, asparagus, apples and watermelon.
Wilfred enjoyed watching sports on T.V. and curled at the Springfield Curling Club for many years. Fishing at Lockport was a favourite activity. His love for cats was displayed by taking care of many strays over the years.
He was predeceased by his siblings, Lillian (Robert) Anderson, Elsie (Art) Lazier, George (Aileen) Kraushar, Dorothy (Clarence) Creek, Florence (Steve) Miller, Arnold (Margaret) Crozier, Rob (Audrey) Kraushar.
Wilfred is survived by his sister-in-law Audrey Kraushar, and 21 nieces and nephews and their families.
Special thanks to the medical staff at Selkirk Hospital for the care provided during the last few weeks of his life.
A funeral service will be held on Friday, August 30, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Seasons Funeral Chapel, 576 Balsam Crescent in OakBank, Manitoba. Interment will be at Millbrook Cemetery.
In memory of Wilfred, donations can be made to a charity of choice.

I too remember fishing over the Seven Sisters Falls with Wilford and your dad. Janice: I hope this late message makes it's way to you. Through the years I have occasionally kept in contact with your mother (Audrey). This year our Christmas card came back with unknown at this address.

Sending sincere condolences to my childhood friends, Jean Anderson & Judy Kraushar, with whom I’ve lost touch over the years, on the passing of their uncle Wilfred. He sounds like a person who loved nature & the land, and was a generous & caring soul with a love for cats. If either Jean or Judy see this post, I’d love to reconnect with you. I currently live in Winnipeg. In friendship, Verna Stecy - Posted by: Verna Stecy (Friend of Wilfred’s nieces) on: Aug 29, 2019
I remember Dad and Wilf going fishing, taking Alan and I as kids, telling us to be quiet or we'll scare the fish! Wilf also had the most beautiful gardens! A real treat, I remember the flowers. Janice Ptak - Posted by: Janice Ptak (Neighbour) on: Aug 28, 2019
