Edward Dyck, born August 6, 1936, in Rosenort Manitoba, passed away peacefully on November 24, 2017 at the Ponoka Hospital & Care Centre.
Ed is survived by his much-loved wife, Helen Dyck (Friesen), his son Dr. Gerald Dyck (Debbie), and his daughters Bev Dyck (Brian) and Carla Roesler(Scott). He also leaves behind his 6 cherished grandchildren; Liam and Micah Bassingthwaighte, and Shaina, Tiana, Madison and Anika Roesler. Ed is survived by his sister Mabel Wall (Victor) and brother Ron Dyck (Pat) and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Edward was born at his parents’ home in Rosenort, Manitoba. His family moved to Altona, where Ed met the love of his life, Helen Friesen. After marrying her in 1957, they moved to Portage La Prairie where he worked as a linotype operator for several years. Eventually they moved back to Altona where Ed continued his career in printing. Ed and Helen and their three children loved their cottage at Moose Lake and times together with relatives and friends.
After moving several times Ed and Helen retired in Cold Lake where they enjoyed their church and close friends. They delivered Meals on Wheels for ten years, and were ‘Church Grandpa and Grandma’ to children in the Alliance Church nursery.
Ed and Helen’s final move brought them to Ponoka where Ed loved living close to his youngest daughter, son-in-law and granddaughters. Ed’s health recently deteriorated and he spent several weeks in hospital before he passed away surrounded by family.
Celebration of life services will be held on Saturday, December 2, at the Church of the Open Bible in Ponoka at 1:30 p.m.
