Alexander Emro

June 13, 1930 – December 6, 2022

Isaiah 6:8-10

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

It is with heavy hearts that his family announces the passing of Alexander Emro on December 6, 2022, peacefully in his sleep at the age of 92.

Alex was born to Michael and Mary Emro (Hungarian Immigrants) in Hansworth, near Kipling, Saskatchewan. Alex worked with the Canadian National Railway, moving with his family throughout Southern Manitoba, eventually settling in Carman. Retiring from the railway, he would be recognizable to many community members for his work as a caretaker of Carman United Church and McKenzie, Mooney and Brown – whistling as he worked. 

He will be missed by his wife Myrtle, of 63 years; his children Angela (Keith) McCullough, Jo-Ann (Murray) Wood, Beverly (Gordon) Twiss, and Bradley (Tina) Emro; his grandchildren Dale McCullough, Harley (Stephanie) McCullough, Jill (Haeden) Lorenz, Raven (Jerrod) Willoughby, Robin (Jeremy) Norquay, Jenna (Allan) Whiten, Terance (Jennifer) Twiss, Brandy (Harley) Swain, Zackary (Haley) Twiss, Wade Twiss, Hailey Twiss, Kaitlin Emro (Cliff), Desiree Marschall (Sean), and Dakota Emro (Aaron); his great grandchildren Macy and Brooks McCullough, Scarlett Lorenz, Harrison and Owen Norquay, Savannah Whiten, Wyatt and Cole Swain, Nixon and Briar Twiss, Logan Twiss, Zander and Neo Courchane, Rosemary and Roland Herbster; and his extended family of nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his son, Scott Emro; his granddaughter, Brigette Twiss; his son-in-law, Murray Wood; his siblings, and his parents.

Our heartfelt thank-you to everyone at Gladstone Health Center for providing care and organizing activities that enriched Alex’s life in his last year.

In lieu of flowers, charitable donations may be made to Gladstone Health Centre, Box 1000, 24 Mill Street, Gladstone, Manitoba, R0J 0T0 or Carman United Church.

A private family viewing was held December 10, 2022. A private family graveside service and a public Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Passing is not the end of life but the beginning of an endless eternal life.
