March 26, 1929 – December 21, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edna Lorraine Manke (Doerksen) on Friday, December 21st at the age of 89. She was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1929 and was the fourth child born to parents Peter and Agatha Doerksen.
She will always be remembered as a loving mother to her four children and a very special grandma to her 12 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren; son Jeff (Susan), Stephen, Janet, Daniel – son Ron (Jackie), Ryan, Julia, Chris – daughter Marilyn (Mark), Melissa, Amy, Tyler, Kelsey – son Warren (Michele) Cole and Cassandra.
Young at heart and full of love she was always a joy to be around – we will sure miss her sense of humour, her positive spirit and her laughter. Her deep faith in God upheld her all her life, and although we will miss her terribly, we are at peace knowing that she is safely in the arms of her precious Saviour.
A Celebration of her life will be held at 10 am on January 12th at Valleyview Funeral Home, 14644 72nd Ave. Surrey.
