Deaths-Albert-WohlgemutWhen Albert was 6, the family moved to Poland, and when he was 10, they immigrated to Winnipeg. Albert accepted the Lord and was baptized at 12. He and Helen moved to the parents’ farm in Landmark, Man., then to Niverville, Man., and in 1971, to Abbotsford, B.C., where they joined Bakerview Church. Albert was a farmer, businessman, construction worker, and employee at Blackwood’s Building Centre, Abbotsford. He served as Sunday school superintendent, school trustee, credit union board member, chairman of Tabor Home for 9 years, and narrator of Glorious Hope radio program for 11 years. He worked until age 70, and after some travelling and relaxing, suffered a debilitating stroke in 2002, and spent his remaining years at Menno Home. Albert had a strong faith and firm convictions.
