Earl Joseph Morin


It is with great sadness that we grieve the loss of a wonderful husband, father, grandfather. He leaves to mourn his loving wife of 67 years, Lena; 10 children, Elaine (Craig), Bernie, Wayne (Janice), Leonard (Jackie), Josie (Jeff), Brenda, Donald (Peggy), Michael (Marlene), Norman (Joanne), Darrell (Rhondda); along with 23 grandchildren, Troy (Agnes), Karla, Jenn, Shawn (Kelly), Brayden (Jaime), Bryce, Dalyn, Danielle, Jebb (Carrie), Keely-Jo, Melanie (Jody), Kyle (Kaeley), Jenn (Hank), Krista (Jeff), Nathan (Rachel), Jordan, Corey, Joey, Lane, Jolene, Nicole, Gabrielle, Noel; and 18 great-grandchildren, Evynn, Madison, Chase, Parker, Rayla, Jayden, Jace, Carter, Cael, Avery, Averly, Sloane, Peyton, Augusten, Lily, Brody, Saffryn and Sydnee. Earl is also survived by his sister Irene and brother Tommy. He will be greatly missed by a long list of relatives and friends. He is predeceased by Lee Morin, Alex Morin, Ken Bartelds, Kyle Schroter, five brothers Joe, Ernie, Buster, Pat and Walter and one sister Maryann.
Earl was born in the Gibbons area into a family of 9, six brothers and two sisters. He grew up like any other young boy in the area, helping on the family farm until he met and married the love of his life, Lena in 1948 (nee Normandeau). Together they raised 10 children and lived in Fort Saskatchewan for over 50 years. He worked at Sherritt for 30 years and had a wonderful retirement life of 31 years. Earl also volunteered in the community, helping at the food bank, delivering flowers, among many other activities.
Without a doubt, the greatest joy of his life was his family. Attending all their events as often as possible, this kept him extremely busy with such a large family.
Earl Morin’s Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, May 15, 2015 at 11:00 AM at the Dow Centennial Centre, Shell Theater, 8700-84 Street, Fort Saskatchewan.
Lena and family would like to thank Dr. Kumar and the nursing staff at the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital Foundation, 9401-86 Avenue.
