It is with great sadness that the family of Loren Wilke announces his passing after a brief illness on Tuesday, June 1, 2021, at the age of 88. Loren will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 62 years, Fern; his children Joe (June), Barry (Lorraine), Darren (Beth) and Karen; his grandchildren Sara (Rob), Stacey (Travis), Sacha (Josh), Cheyanne, Paula (Garrett), Mitchell (Felicia) and Lynette (Aaron); and his great grandchildren Taylor, Sawyer, Shaymus, Emma, Chloe, Clara and Emmett.
Loren was predeceased by his parents, Paul and Aurelia; and by his siblings, Joe, Marion, Verla, Raymond and Walter.
Loren was the youngest son of Paul and Aurelia. He was born and raised on the family farm in the Lucasville District North of Viscount, Saskatchewan. In 1951, Loren decided to spread his wings and headed west to farm in the Alsask/Merid district.
Loren married the love of his life Fern Mayer in 1958, and together they expanded their land base and ran a successful farming operation for over 60 years.
Loren was a farmer, a “fix-it” man, a person of laughter and jokes, and he loved a good game of cards. He spent many summers at the family cottage at Aquadeo, where he loved to golf and socialize with family and friends. He was a good friend to many and was always eager to volunteer his time, energy and mechanical expertise to help his neighbours and community. He will be remembered for his kindness, generosity and wonderful smile.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions a celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Donations in Loren’s memory may be made to the Alsask Community Club, Box 3, Alsask, SK, S0L 0A0.
