IN LOVING MEMORY
Ernest “Ernie” Spreen
December 15, 1935 – September 19, 2018
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ernie Spreen on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at the age of 82 years.
Ernie is survived by his son Douglas (Marina) and daughter Adriana Mills; grandchildren Zac Mills, Grayson (Hannah) Mills, Mia Spreen and Anika Spreen; brother Carl (Marjorie) Spreen and sister Bonita (Henry) Suicenec, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Ernie was born in Edson, AB to Kathe and Carl Spreen. He met Maria Vanderburg in Edson and they married April 27, 1963. He worked at various jobs, from milkman to his own business.
He was a wonderful father and husband who had a great sense of humour. He loved to hunt, fish, and go camping with his children and nieces and nephews. He always had time to help someone and tell a story or two. He will be truly missed.
Thanks to Doctor J. Ojedokum and the staff of the Whitecourt Health Care Centre and the staff at Barrhead Keir Care Center.
