George Henry Funk of Tofield, AB was born on June 29, 1926 in Mariawohl, Russia;  he passed away peacefully on November 10, 2018 at the age of 92 years.

We will lovingly remember him; his wife of 64 years, Margie; his daughter Carol (Glen) Zacharias, and their children Mark (Nola), Lisa (Nathan), Jonathon (Bridget), Jacob (Leanne), Carrie (Andrew); his daughter Lorraine, and her family Robin (Kelli), Rhonda (Daniel), Michael (Chantelle), Alistair, and Donovan; and his son Andrew.

Dad leaves behind one brother, his kid brother, Peter; two sister’s-in-law: Frieda (Peters wife), and Eileen (Henry’s wife); one brother-in-law Abe (sister Betty’s husband); and countless friends.

Our dad had a great sense of humour, a strong sense of fairness, and he loved to tell his stories.  His deep faith carried him well through his entire life.


A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, November 16, 2018 at Salem Mennonite Church (one mile north of the intersection of Twp. Rd. 492 and Rg. Rd. 184) with Pastor Mark Loewen officiating.  A private family interment service will take place at the Tofield Cemetery.
