Aug. 21, 1925 – Aug.10, 2015

On August 10 Michael peacefully left this world. Michael will be sadly missed by his loving family and many dear friends. Michael was born in Laskow Poland and was the eldest son of Elizabeth and Konan Washkevich. In 1934 he immigrated to Canada with his mother, to join Konan at the family homestead west of Rimbey Alberta. Michael later had his own farm at Leedale, Alberta. He met his wife Nettie and they were married on June 6, 1955. They raised their family on the farm until moving to Red Deer in 1976 where they spent thirty-eight years. Michael leaves behind his loving wife of 60 years, Nettie: three daughters Irene Aldrich, Olga Stern and Debbie Baudais, and numerous Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren: his four siblings Mary Leblanc, Nena Rowat, Peter Washkevich and Nadia Papp. Michael was preceded in death by his daughter Anne Kimenius. He will be remembered as a wonderful Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Friend.
