A kind, gentle soul has earned her wings in peace . With profound sorrow, Ed Lindeman has lost the love of his life and wife of 53 years, Shirley Anne (Knodel) Lindeman on April 28, 2021 at Leader Hospital
Shirley (or lovingly referred to as Shirl) was born on May 9, 1949 in Eatonia, SK to Otto and Mary Knodel, Big sister Kathy (Nunweiler) welcomed a new sister.
Her children and daughter in law were her immense joy - left with eternal precious memories are Jaymes (Crossfield,Ab) and David (Kelly) (Redcliff,Ab)
She lived for her grandchildren Sheena, Chase, Carson & Carter and took great interest in following their sports and activities from the time they were young. Her life revolved around travelling with Ed to their numerous sports and activities. There wasnt many times when Grandma Shirley wasnt in the stands cheering them on until her health no longer would allow it.
She was excited to know that a baby girl would be joining their family this summer with Chase & Chloe
Ed & Shirley were the epitome of being a couple. They did not travel anywhere without one another and enjoyed following the chuckwagon circuit (reminiscent of Ed's cowboy days), journeying down to the NFR, camping and loved to go on visit travels to see family and friends. Shirley also loved to read . David and Kelly's close friends were very much treated like their family and always looked forward to a visit with them There were many supper dates and gatherings with lots of love and laughter. Shirley's quiet and gentle manner will be missed by them as well
"She flew up to heaven on the wings of Angels
By the clouds and stars and past where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I Know shes smiling saying
Dont worry 'bout me"
- Alan Jackson, Sissys Song
