BRUNNER
JOHN FRITZ BRUNNER, beloved husband of Lydia Brunner of Lethbridge, passed away at St. Michael’s Palliative Care Centre on Thursday, March 20th, 2014 at the age of 86 years.
Besides his loving wife, he is survived by his children, Linda (Murray) Dueck of Lethbridge, Dave (Mona) Brunner of Redcliff, Nancy (Shannon) Dawson of Lethbridge; grandchildren: Natasha (Jason), Byron, Matt, Sara, Shane, Mitch; two great-grandchildren Kingston & Paxton. He is also survived by two sisters, Anne (Chuck) Wesselman & Rose (Ora) Sommerfeldt; five sisters-in-law, three brothers-in-law as well as numerous nieces & nephews.
John was born April 25th, 1927 in Magrath, AB. At a relatively young age, John left school in order to support his family financially and aid in the return of his brother from war torn Europe. In 1958 he married Lydia Motycka and they settled in Spring Coulee for a short time before moving to Magrath, where they raised their family and spent the next 36 years
John began working for Alberta Transportation (Dept. of Highways) in 1962 and retired in 1996 as supervisor of the Magrath operations. He always took great pride in ensuring that the roads were in the best possible condition. John proudly served the community of Magrath as a councillor for 21 consecutive years. He was a devoted Catholic and an honorary lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus (Council 1490).
John was mostly a homebody, caring for his apple trees, roses and tomatoes; however, he did thoroughly enjoy a trip that he took with his wife to eastern Canada and U.S.A.
A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at the OUR LADY OF THE ASSUMPTION CATHOLIC CHURCH, 2405 – 12th Avenue South, Lethbridge on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 at 11:00 A.M., with Father Kevin Tumback, Celebrant. A private interment will be held at a later date.
