1921 ~ 2013

The family of Anton Proskiw is sad to announce his sudden

passing on November 14, 2013. He died peacefully

in his sleep at Lake Country Lodge and Manor where he lived with his beloved wife Eva. He was born in Myrnam,

Alberta on April 5, 1921 and enjoyed a full and

wonderful life as a farmer, finishing carpenter and building contractor. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He was happiest in the last few years when he was surrounded by grandchildren or playing with his great grandchildren. He also loved listening to music or watching his Vancouver Canucks. He will be greatly

missed by his wife Eva of 68 years, son Dr. Bryan (Judy) Proskiw, daughter Elayne (Warren) Jacobson, five

grandchildren; Adam Proskiw, Lora Proskiw Moran

(Grayson), Brooke Proskiw Stromsmoe, Justin (Becky)

Jacobson, and Lindsay Jacobson. His five great

grandchildren; Noah Stromsmoe, Quinten Stromsmoe,

Addison Moran, Brynn Moran and Avery Jacobson will

especially miss their Gido. Anton is survived by his sister, Mildred Samograd of Edmonton and brother Joe Proskiw,

of Vegreville, Alberta. His faith was strong to the

very end and he now waits to hear the voice of his Savior

on the Resurrection Morning. A funeral service will be
