Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • Deepest sympathies. I’ll always remember being a kid and talking about the Blue Bombers with my Uncle. Though it’s years ago now, Julie and I were both so happy to see Rubin enjoy himself on our wedding day here in Toronto. Thinking of you all at this difficult time. - Posted by: Mark Piel (Nephew) on: Jan 23, 2020

  • Tante Erna, Marlene, Cheryl and all family members. We would like to say how sorry we are for your loss of husband, father, father-in-law, Opa and brother. I have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Rubin. One that sticks out to me is when he imitated Ernie's laugh from Sesame Street! He had it perfect! Marlene you might remember this too. It was so special to be able to see him at Micaeka's wedding, the last time I saw him. He will always be in my heart. We pray that you will feel God's comfort and loving arms around you during this difficult time. Wish we could be there , but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you all.

  • Erna, Marlene, Cheryl and family - saddened to hear on the sudden passing of Rubin, and I am sure this is will be a challenging time. He was a great uncle for me, and a faithful member of the breakfast club when I have been able to return to Winnipeg to see family. Fondly remember his family stories, especially when Dad passed away. He was always a bit of prankster as well, often sharing a story or joke. Condolences and best wishes to all: will be with you in spirit. - Posted by: Harold (& Judy) Piel (Relative ) on: Jan 23, 2020

  • Tane Erna, Cheryl and Marlene; we grieve with you over Onkel Rubin's passing. I have so many memories from him doing my hair for Sunday service after sleeping over on a Saturday night, to Cheryl and I going to the apartments with him to collect rent. He was always so kind and loving to me treating me just like his own. Many prayers are being lifted up for you all and we'll be thinking of you as you say good-bye on the 23rd. - Posted by: Tammy Litke (Friend) on: Jan 23, 2020

  • Dear Tante Erna, Marlene and Cheryl and families, Thinking of you all so much, as you mourn and celebrate the life of Onkel Rubin. So many memories as Marlene and I grew up together. I will always hear O. Rubin's chuckles in my mind. As well, seeing him lead the choir and congregation at Mission Baptist Church. Rubin was also always available to help out in any way possible. He was especially cherished by the Schroth family as he often visited Teo Schroth and get him out of the house to go to Tim Horton's for coffee, especially when Teo was no longer able to go on his own. May you sense God's presence during this time and look forward seeing him again some day in eternity. Much love, Andrea and family. - Posted by: Andrea Schroth (Friend) on: Jan 22, 2020

  • Erna, Marlene, Cheryl and family we would like to pass on our condolences and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Know that God will be your strength and comfort at this difficult time. Sorry that we are not able to be there but will be there in spirit.

  • Dear Erna, Marlene and Cheryl, My deepest sympathies on the passing of Rubin. I always appreciated his love for church music and his leadership in that area. My first experiences as a choir member at Mission were when he was the director. And when it came to leading congregational singing, it was always either Rubin or Phil. While you no doubt grieve his passing, I'm praying that you find some solace and joy in the fact that Rubin is now present with the One who was the focus of all those songs... in the place where every singer is always "on tune." - Posted by: Dan Sudfeld (Brother (in the Lord)) on: Jan 21, 2020

  • Our sincere condolences Erna and Family for your great loss. Always a joy and most comforting for us to be in Rubin's company. A genuine force contributing so much to the well being of others. We are truly grateful our paths crossed. - Posted by: Lois and Garry (Friends) on: Jan 21, 2020
