William ZIELIE

ZIELIE William Eldon Zielie of Lacombe passed away suddenly and peacefully at home on his farm in Iowalta District on Thursday, October 7, 2004 at the age of 86. Bill was born January 26, 1918, in Lacombe and lived and farmed all of his life in the Iowalta District. He farmed with his parents, Charlie and Pearl Zielie on the family farm until his marriage to Myrtle Hubbard in 1941. Bill and Myrtle then moved to their own farm, 11/4 miles away, where they lived for 62 happy years. Bill continued to farm with his son Ken until recent years and even after he retired, he still liked to help with the seeding and the harvest. He was out working in the field the day before his passing. Bill also liked to do woodworking and kept his relatives and friends supplied with fine samples of his work. Myrtle predeceased Bill on February 12, 2004 and now they are united once again. Bill loved his farm and got his wish never to leave.
