GRYNKE, Leonard Ernest

In the early morning of Monday, September 12, 2022, Leonard Ernest Grynke passed away at age eighty-three.

He will be lovingly remembered by daughter Bernice (Robert) and granddaughter Ava; son Dwaine (Erin) and grandchildren Peyton and Levi. Leonard was predeceased by his wife of 32 years, Elaine, his parents Edmund and Natalie Grynke and brother-in-law Walter. His is survived by brothers Daniel (Frieda) and Herb (Bonnie) and sister Margaret along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Born in the homestead log house on the family farm, Leonard continued to work the land where he lived until retiring, moving to an acreage near Devon in 2004. The farm was hard work – daily chores of feeding hogs, cattle and often chickens along with the cycles of growing wheat, barley, and canola. The farm was also a gathering place for visits with friends and family that he cherished greatly.

Away from the farm, Leonard regularly served as a Board member at church and enjoyed camping, fishing attending annual family camp church services as well as southern gospel music concerts.

A visitation will be held Thursday September 15, 2022, from 6 – 8 p.m. at Serenity Funeral Service (5311 91 Street NW, Edmonton) with interment at Vega Community Cemetery on Friday September 16, 2022, at 2:30 p.m.

A celebration of life will be held at Hope City Church Mill Woods on Saturday, September 17, 2022, at 1:00 p.m.

The family wishes to express our sincere gratitude to the nurses and staff of Jubilee Lodge Nursing Home for their kindness and support of Leonard.
