Albert Werbiski


Albert Werbiski was born to Peter and Mary Werbiski on January 14, 1927. He enjoyed growing up on the family farm near Holden, AB. A couple of times they moved to Edmonton for the winter. As a teen he attended youth group at Beulah Tabernacle.

Al chose a career in broadcasting and worked in Grande Prairie and Lethbridge. While in Lethbridge, he was invited by Rev. Roy Upton to attend evangelistic meetings at the Pentecostal Church. It was there that he was convicted of his sinful state. He repented and became a “new creation in Christ.”

Al attended Bethel Bible Institute in Saskatoon, SK, where he met Lillian Dynna. They were married in 1956. They pastored several churches in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and BC. For 10 years they served as missionaries in Kenya. Together they raised four children.

When Al retired in 1992, he managed to keep as busy as ever, filling in at churches that needed an interim pastor. He also made nine trips to Ukraine, teaching a course in eschatology at the seminary there. In 2000 he was offered a part time job at Connelly McKinley Funeral Home which lasted 2 1/2 years. He taught an Adult Bible Class and led services at Shepherd’s Care.

In December 2013, Lillian passed away. Al moved into Shepherd’s Care Millwoods Manor the following year. Eventually needing more medical care, he moved into St. Albert Retirement Residence in May 2016. On the evening of March 14, 2018 Albert passed peacefully into the presence of Jesus.

Albert was predeceased by his wife of 57 years, Lillian; father Peter; mother Mary; two infant brothers; and his sisters Zella (Gizelia) and Leona.

After a life well lived, Albert will be greatly missed by his family: Tim (Brenda), Marilyn (Kirk), Patricia, Daniel (Pat); 10 grandchildren: Kelsey, Natalie, Kaela (Jonathan), Brandon (Melissa), Christopher, Andrew, Evan, Brecon, Alexander and Siena. We look forward with hope to the day we will see him again.

A Memorial Service will be held at Evangel Pentecostal Assembly, 4461-50 St. NW Edmonton at 11:00 am onThursday,  March 29, 2018.

The family would like to express their gratitude to all who cared for, visited and prayed for Albert.
