Edmund Stachura, beloved husband of the late Margaret Stachura, passed peacefully on April 5, 2020 at the Yorkton & District Nursing Home, at the age of 91 years.
Edmund was born on August 30, 1928 in the Otthon district, to George and Kate Stachura, the oldest of three children, and brother to Edith Kotzer and Joe Stachura. Edmund attended school at Pebble Lake, where he played ball with the school’s team. Following his school years Ed remained at home to help his parents on the farm until he met the love of his life, Margaret Gress, from Yorkton. They met at a dance and were united in marriage on July 23rd, 1956 at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Yorkton. They were blessed with seven children and spent their lives farming in the Pebble Lake district in which they were active members. They were married for sixty years until Margaret passed away in 2017.
Ed never really retired when he and Margaret moved off the farm into Yorkton in 1993. He continued to spend his days at the farm, helping his sons at their farms, visiting neighbors, spending countless hours at hockey rinks watching his grandchildren play hockey. He enjoyed sharing stories with friends and relatives. He also enjoyed ice fishing with his friends, dancing, playing cards with his and Margaret’s many friends, solitaire, and crib with whoever came to visit and with his grandchildren. Ed’s passion was the land and farming and taking care of his family. He enjoyed his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and buying them treats and Cheezies. He was also known as the “Auction King” to many, as his love for attending auctions never went unnoticed. His family and friends will always remember his company, his stories, his smiles, and his helping hand to all.
