Winagean Alberg


Winagean Alberg (nee Jones), a long-time resident of Wetaskiwin, passed away peacefully on May 14th in the Wetaskiwin Hospital’s palliative care ward. The family would like to thank all of the staff for the care given to Winagean.

Born in 1921 in Vulcan, AB, Winagean moved to Wetaskiwin after marrying Johnny Alberg in 1945, where the couple operated a successful farm implement business. She was an active member of the Ebenezer Baptist Church. In retirement, Winagean devoted countless hours visiting friends in the hospital and assisting with the Wetaskiwin Twilighters. Many have been touched by Winagean’s kindness, warmth and witty sense of humour. She will be missed.

She is survived by her children Kenny Alberg (Betty), Linda Mullen (Raymond Journault); grandchildren Conrad Elander, Tamara Alberg (Kent Hanwell), Kohen Elander, Ben Mullen (Leah);   great grandchildren Rylun Alberg-Moore and Harlow Mullen.

A graveside service will take place Sunday, May 22nd at 3PM at the Wetaskiwin Cemetery (Old) with a reception at By-the-Lake Park to follow.  Memorial gifts may be made to Operation Eyesight.

Our sincere condolences to Kenny and Linda and their family. Winagean was a very kind and generous person.
What a great sense of humour and razor sharp wit.
It was an great honour to have known her and her brother
Robert. We had shared so many wonderful times together
over the 30+ years. So many laughs and so much friendship. True friends. I will miss them both a great deal.

Love and prayers

My sincere condolences to both Kenny & Linda as well as their ;families. Auntie Winagean was a very special lady to me and a dear friend. I am going to miss our connections, but realize that she is resting at peace now which I am very thankful for. I am sorry that I am not with you at this very sad and difficult time to say goodbye.
Lots of love, Florence
