Kubke, Edwin

God saw you getting tired

And a cure was not to be,

So He put his arms around you

And He whispered, “Come to Me.”

With tearful eyes we watched you

and saw you pass away.

And though we loved you dearly,

We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

Hard-working hands at rest,

And although our hearts were broken

We know God knows best.

Edwin was born in Poland and immigrated to Canada in 1953. He was a gifted carpenter, took pride in quality craftsmanship and was employed in Calgary’s construction industry. He was a faithful Christian and enjoyed his family, music, the outdoors and serving in the church. Edwin passed away at home in the care of his family on March 9, 2006, at the age of 68 years, after a brief struggle with cancer. Edwin is lovingly remembered by his wife Ingrid; children Sonja (Sheldon) Dasiuk and Robert Kubke; grandchildren Justin and Mikayla; mother Wanda Kubke; brother Ewald (Jeannette) Kubke; relatives and friends. He was predeceased by his father Friedrich Kubke.
