Cornelius Krahn

On Friday, December 4, 2020, Cornelius Krahn, loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother passed away at the age of 76.

Cornelius was born on December 10, 1943 in Chaco, Paraguay, to Wilhelm and Anna Krahn. Cornelius lived there until 1969, when he moved to Canada. On September 13, 1975, he married Norma (Bogado) Krahn. Together they raised two daughters, Charlene and Sherrilyn.

Cornelius worked as a machine operator at DeFehr Furniture for over 20 years and retired at 63 years of age.
Cornelius had a strong faith in God and his Christian faith was very evident in the way he lived his life. He was an active member of Kilcona Park Alliance Church and served faithfully as an usher for many years.
Cornelius had a passion for gardening and always looked forward to tending his large garden every summer. He also loved to go biking whenever he had the chance, and go golfing with his friends. Breakfast dates with his daughters were also something he enjoyed.

Cornelius was known for his quiet sense of humor, his positive outlook on life, and his immense love for his family.
Cornelius was preceded in death by his father Wilhelm, his mother Anna, and his brother-in-law Jakob Schroeder. He is survived by his wife Norma, his two children, Charlene (Chris), and Sherrilyn, his grandchildren, Eliana, Liam, and Myles, his five brothers, Henry (Liese), Gerhard (Neta), John (Lena), Bernhard (Justina), Diedrich (Susie), his five sisters, Helen (Peter), Tina (John), Mary (Henry), Trudy (Levi), Eva (Rudy), and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Special thanks to the staff at Park Manor Care Home for their kind and compassionate care.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, December 11, 2020 at Friends Funeral Service and will be available for viewing via live stream on the Friends Funeral Service website.

Donations can be made to Northern Canada Evangelical Mission Inc.

You can rest now, no more suffering. You are completely free. We love you and will miss you always. See you on the other side.

Our condolences to you Aunt Norma and your Family. We had many good times going camping packing up our families on friday after work and heading to Falcon lake. We will cherish those memories going for bike rides, fishing, golfing and of course enjoying a good ice cream at the Falcon nest ice cream shop every day. Willie and Debbie

Since we have met you, you have been so kind and caring to us. You were always available when we needed you and Norma. Your house is always open. During summer time, you always shared some vegetables from your garden. We enjoyed your company especially in our road trips. When we go for vacation you are always available to drive and pick us up to/from the airport. We know you love our children. We are so grateful for all you have done to us. We will miss you Cornie.
