Ernest Godal

We regret to announce the death at Polson Multilevel Care Unit of Vernon Jubilee Hospital on November 2, 2006, of Ernest Godal, at the age of 81 years. Ernie was born in Czechoslovakia and came to Canada as a young man. He had a long career with the CNR as a locomotive engineer, based out of Winnipeg, retiring to Vernon in 1987. Ernie loved his garden and especially his fruit trees. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Mary; children Linda, Bob and Margaret (Kerry), and grandchildren Mitchell and Kalina. He is also survived by a brother, Albert (Olga) in Winnipeg, and a number of nieces, nephews and extended family members. We would like to extend our thanks to all the staff at Polson Extended Care for their kindness and caring of Ernie, as well as Bernadete and Maryann from Our Lady of the Valley Roman Catholic Church. Honouring Ernie’s wishes there will be no public funeral held. Cremation arrangements were in the care of Vernon Funeral Home. 542-0155
