In Loving Memory Of
Norman Berger Wold
Norman Berger Wold, resident of Grande Prairie, AB, formerly of Buffalo Lake, AB, passed away on Saturday, January 4, 2020 at the University of Alberta Hospital, Edmonton, AB, at the age of 92 years.
Norman was born September 5, 1927 on the family farm near La Glace, AB. His parents were Mary and Olaf Wold. He went to the Canuck school, near La Glace. With a grade 5 education and his entrepreneurial spirit, he was able to attain his mechanical license and learned how to do the finances for the family farm. He married Irene Johnson January 22, 1947. Norman and Irene moved around Alberta for work beginning in Beaverlodge, then Peace River, Bentley, Alder Flats and finally settling in the La Glace area the fall of 1956, where Norman and Irene bought Pete Stein’s farm. They lived on the homestead for 54 years, a mile away from where he grew up, until 2011.
Norman will be remembered as a gentle soul. He would help anyone who needed assistance. He loved to laugh. He loved to tease, and he loved his family. Norman could fix almost anything, whether it was welding or mechanics. The only thing he didn’t want to help with is if it involved a hammer or a saw. Norman enjoyed his hobbies of hunting, fishing, being a mechanic and farming.
He will be fondly and lovingly remembered by his children: Dianne Delaney (Ed Welsh), Gail (Neil) Sandboe, Randy (Deb Ness), Roger (Valerie), Janice (D’Arcy) Johnson, Sherry (Allen) Avery, Donald (Charlene), and Dennis (Tina); 23 paternal grandchildren; 31 paternal great-grandchildren; numerous « adopted » grand and great-grandchildren; sister Loreen Berg; brother in-law Allen Johnson; and sister in-law Ina Johnson.
Norman was predeceased by his wife Irene Wold, nine of his siblings, in-laws, and sons in-law Bert Delaney and Rod Neufeld.
