Gilbert Karl Sommert returned to his heavenly home on January 30, 2017, at the Good Samaritan Southgate Care Centre, at the age of 82.
Gilbert entered into the ministry at age 19, achieving his bachelor’s degree in theology. He retired from full-time ministry at the age of 70, though he continued to minister the rest of his life.
He is survived by his loving wife, Bernice; daughters: Donna Joy Loe (Norm Remillard), Twyla (Cal Chadwick); grandchildren: John (Laurelle Loe), James Loe, Caleb Chadwick, Caitlyn (Cory Fraser), and five great-grandchildren.
His Celebration of Life will be held February 10, 2017, at 1:00 pm at West Edmonton Christian Assembly. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to The Gideons International in Canada, or The Good Samaritan Southgate Continuing Care Centre.
The family would like to extend special thanks to Pastor Marvin Dynna for his faithful visits this last year, as well as Dr. Bradstock and the staff at The Good Samaritan Southgate for their excellent, and compassionate care.
