Obituary

On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, Edwin Norman Gramlich of St. Albert passed away peacefully at home at the age of 79 years, surrounded and cared for by his family.

He is loved and remembered by his wife of 56 years, Ruth (nee Smith) and by his children and grandchildren: Gwen Gunn (Jacob and Haley), Edwin Norman 2nd (Carol and Justin), Leah (Maria, Sam and Max), Gordon, Susan Gutenburg (Michael), Allison Bichel (Stuart, Joseph, Thomas and Julia), and Catherine Dyer (Sam, Sullivan and Duncan). He is survived by his brother, Simon Peter and his sisters: Gertie, Delores and Lorna.

Ed was predeceased by his father, Jacob Anton Gramlich; his mother, Philomena Sophia (nee Reinbold); and his siblings: Rose, Vic and Fred.

Edwin married Ruth in 1959 (his greatest accomplishment) and graduated from Medicine at the University of Alberta in 1961. As a young doctor he started the Grandin Medical Clinic in St. Albert with Fin Fairfield and served as Chief of Staff at the Sturgeon General Hospital. He was a husband, father, uncle, mentor, task master, teacher and friend. He was a skillful, insightful and compassionate physician. An avid outdoorsman, he loved the lake, skiing, building and fishing. A resourceful craftsman, he had talent, artistic creativity and enthusiasm and lived a full life. He enjoyed a rewarding and productive life on the farm and in retirement, traveled North America in the motorhome with the love of his life.

Ed suffered bravely and now is at peace. He will be missed.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, November 11, 2015 at St. Albert Catholic Parish, 7 St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert, Alberta.

In Lieu of flowers Memorial Donations may be made in the name of Edwin Norman Gramlich to the Sturgeon Community Hospital Foundation, 201 Bourdeau Road, St. Albert, Alberta T8N 9Z9.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Darcy Zalasky for his “special treatment”, Morinville homecare, palliative homecare and the staff of Unit 17 at the Sturgeon Community Hospital.

In Loving Memory of
Dr. Edwin N. Gramlich
