November 10,1928 – April 20, 2017
Peacefully on April 20, 2017, Edmond Hohn went to be with his Lord and Saviour. Cherishing his memory and celebrating his life are his wife, Manetta, of 58 years, his children Glenda (Jurgen) Kannwischer, Sharlene (Wilf) Mueller, Calvin (Susanne) Hohn, Rhonda (Emile) Moured, as well as his grandchildren Lauren, Allison (Mark), Michelle, Jessica, Ysabelle, Elianna, Gabriella and one great-granddaughter, Selah. Edmond was predeceased by his parents, Teofil & Holdine Hohn, stepfather Nick Peters, and brothers Hartley and Walter.
Edmond was born in Reston, Manitoba and grew up on a farm in Swan River, Manitoba. Ed committed his life to the Lord when he was 15, and submitted to God’s call on his life to full time ministry, pastoring churches in Saskatchewan and British Columbia. His gentle and humble spirit, strength of leadership and pastoral heart impacted many lives. Ed and Manetta enjoyed many years of retirement together in Kelowna, but with his recent decline in health, he was very ready to go to his heavenly home.
A celebration of Edmond’s life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 29th at Trinity Baptist Church, 1905 Springfield Rd, Kelowna, B.C. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, memorial contributions can be made to North American Baptist Conference Missions, www.nabconference.org/missions or The Gideons International in Canada, www.gideons.ca .
