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.
