Ulrich “Ollie” Glimm

April 25th, 1941 – May 26th, 2011

“…absent from the body, present with the Lord…”

2 Cor 5:8b

Ollie was born to a close-knit pioneer family in Northmark, Alberta and had recently returned to the homestead, sharing that experience with his children and some grandchildren. He had many passions and mastered many trades in which he expressed those talents through his own business ‘Glimco’. His greatest passion however was his family that was expressed so deeply in the last weeks of his life.

Ollie (Opa) will be dearly missed and remembered by his wife Ruth; Children Jaiyme, Jackie (Craig), Erin and Peter (Mikaela); Grandchildren Danielle, Jessika (Greg), Becky, Josh, Jon, Tye, Ben, Lindsay, Sam, Eli, Sasha, Kurt and Kito; Great Grandchildren Jade, Nico and Dylan; Sisters Kay, Kit and Liesa; Brothers Peter (Bev), Wally (Ingrid) and Klaus (Diana); also by his extended family and friends. He will join his parents Helmuth and Gertrude, and his eldest daughter Teresa (Mik).

A memorial service will be held on June 4th at 1pm

at the Community Baptist Church (4911 Silver Star Rd)

“…I am tired, I am weak, I am worn:

Through the storm, through the night,

Lead me on to the light

Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.”
