We are saddened by the passing of Helmut Krause of Edmonton, AB on Sept. 2, 2017 at the age of 85 after a lengthy illness.
The Krause family came to Canada in 1930 and settled in the Warburg, AB area where Helmut was born in 1932. In 1935, they returned to Germany. When Helmut was 18 years of age he returned to Canada where he worked as a carpenter in Quebec, Northern Canada and Alberta.
Helmut is survived by two sisters Ute Heyde and Bertha Maronde both of Germany, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by two brothers during WWII in Russia and recently by one brother in Australia.
A special thank you to the staff at Lifestyle Options Whitemud for their care and compassion.
A private memorial service will be held in Edmonton.
