Obituary

Maurice died peacefully, with family at his side, after a short battle with pneumonia and years of quiet struggle with the many losses brought on by Alzheimer\'s disease. He will be lovingly remembered by Theresa - his wife of close to 60 years - and his children, Fraser (Kathy), Lyall (Margo), Derek (Terri) and Leslie (Greg). His grandchildren, Mikayla, Nathaniel, Kristyn, Nicholas, Jade, Silas, Caleb, Logan and Roan meant the world to him. He was predeceased by his granddaughter Thea, his brother Oscar (Alexandria), his sister Violet and his brother Ralph (Connie). One of nine children raised by the late Edward and Elise on the family farm near Alcomdale, he is survived by his brothers: Dan, Alex, Oliver and Norman (Johanna) and sister Vera (Hector). Maurice and Theresa warmly welcomed family and friends to their home in west Edmonton for nearly 55 years - including Saturday nights with the poker gang and Sunday dinners with kids and grandkids. He grilled the perfect steak and baked the best buns. He loved family holidays in the mountains and was always ready for a game of crib. A dedicated volunteer in his church community for many years, he was a man of great faith. Maurice will be remembered for his gentleness, his quiet dignity, the strength of his spirit and the depth of his love and devotion for his family. Grateful thanks to Dr. Jim Bell and the staff and residents of Foyer Lacombe in St. Albert for their compassionate care and spiritual support.

In Loving Memory of
Maurice Brenneis
