Ernest Ole Halberg of Lacombe Alberta passed away peacefully on January 3, 2014. Ole was born in Janijo, Kristianopel, Sweden on March 2, 1923 to Walfrid and Olga Halberg. They immigrated to Canada in 1924 and he grew up on the family farm in the Lincoln District and went to school at Lincoln School. When he was a young man he joined the Army and proudly served in WWII until he had to return home because his father was injured. Ole started farming from that day forward. Ole met and married the love of his life Vera (Terry) Halberg in 1947 and to this union five children were born. They farmed in the Lincoln District before retiring to Lacombe in 2000 where they had several good years and then due to failing health they moved into the Care Centre. They were together until Terry passed away in 2012 celebrating sixty four years together.
