Dec 29, 1934 – Nov 11, 2017
Stanley Frank Dubielew, a.k.a. “Pops”, of Rimbey, Alberta passed away at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute, Edmonton on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at the young age of 82 years, following complications from heart surgery.
Stan was born in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan on December 29, 1934, the only child to Frank and Otolja Dubielew.
As a young man, he took over the family farm in Major, Saskatchewan where he met and married Natalie Mech. Together they had five children, and in 1971 Stan got the fever to move west, choosing Rimbey, Alberta.
He enjoyed gardening, singing, playing cards, bingo, and just being with his family.
Sporting one of his many cowboy hats, Pops could be seen cruising down main street in his scooter, heading to the Co-op. He looked forward to his Thursday coffee time with his boys. Until his passing, Stan resided at the Kansas Ridge One Apartments.
Stan is survived by the mother of their children, Natalie Dubielew of Rimbey; and their five loving children: Lanny (Denise) of Bluffton; Ken (Della) of Big Lake, B.C.; Perry (Brenda) of Hoadley; Tish from Sylvan Lake; and Marc (Terri) of Bluffton.
Pops was very proud of his seventeen grandchildren and his eight great grandchildren, with the 9th addition on the way.
A Celebration of Pops’ Life will be held in the Spring, on Sunday, May 13, 2018, at the Lavesta Community Hall at 11:00 a.m.
He will be laid to rest in the Iola Fairview Cemetery, Bluffton at a later date.
