    Emil Ferdinand Krause

    Emil Ferdinand Krause, born January 27, 1930, passed away on September 15, 2023 at the River Ridge Seniors Village at the age of 93 years. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Esther (nee Kruger); his parents, John and Helene Krause; his sister, Irma (Klebe); brother, Eric, and many other important extended family members. Left to honour his life and legacy are sons, Ricky (Vicky) and their children, Amy and Daniel (Alyssa Fonteyne); Timothy (Elaine) and their children, Andrew (Roxanne Galarneau Leclair) and Emily (Logan Smith); David (Karen) and their children, Keaton, Jayda, and Jenna; and daughter, Lori (Thad) Karwandy and their children, Lois and Cordell.
    Whether it was setting a porcupine loose in the cloakroom of his one room school as a teen, blaring ‘O Canada’ on his trumpet early in the morning at family gatherings, or sharing amusing exploits with friends and family, Emil will be remembered as a bright spark who livened many gatherings with his wit and humour. Born in Ponoka, AB, his family then moved to Chilliwack, BC where he completed high school. He went on to the University of Saskatchewan and attained a Bachelor of Arts in 1952 and in 1955, a Certificate of Theology. In 1975, he received his Bachelor of Education and in 1980, his Master of Divinity. He started his ministry as a Lutheran pastor in the Schuler/Hilda area where he met and married his wife, Esther. He also served in Vernon BC, Lemberg, SK and then returned to his roots in Schuler/Hilda. He added the Manyberries congregation while also teaching full-time at Maple Creek, then several Hutterite colonies, then Bindloss, then finally the Elkwater Hutterite colony. He retired from teaching at age 65 but went on ministering until he was 87. He was passionate about preserving small town parishes and wrote several books about pioneers and their experiences with the Lutheran church. Active in so many organizations, he served his community well. He loved singing in choirs, playing his trumpet, serving it up with tennis and table tennis at the Strathcona Centre, fishing, playing chess, and mastering carpentry in his spare time.
