October 5, 1935 - January 22, 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of Dorothy (Dot) Doreen Stallknecht (née Kristel) announces her passing on January 22, 2021 in Edmonton at the Misericordia Hospital at the age of 85.

Mom was predeceased by her loving Husband of 62 years, Henry, her first-born son, Larry, parents George and Adeline, step-mother Maria, brother Edward (Eddie), and sister Elizabeth (Lizzie).

She was also predeceased by her sister-in-law Rose Mertz, brothers-in-law Wally Mertz, Paul and Kurt Stallknecht and her great-grandchild Baby Henry.

Dorothy is survived by her sons Randy (Audrey) Myles (Colleen) and David (Claudette). She is also survived by 2 grandchildren, Shane Stallknecht and Natasha Reddon and 4 great-grandchildren, Kaidence, Avery, Emrey and Kane, along with numerous nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her brother-in-law Garry (Ilse) and her step-sister Elsie.

She was a consummate mother and wife. Mom was an excellent cook and she enjoyed preparing meals for family and friends.  She not only raised and nurtured her family but owned a café in Thorsby and worked in various office settings – 7-11, an accounting firm, a sand/gravel operation, and a family owned convenience store. She loved to play bingo - one of her favorite activities to meet up with friends, unwind and occasionally yell BINGO!

We extend our sincere thanks to her neighbors and friends Brenda, Lauchlin, and Paul – without their help mom could not have lived in her home for as long as she did. We also thank Home Instead staff – Kimberley, Lisa, Shelley, Athena and Rosalie, who cared for Mom during the last several months of her life.

Mom has been cremated and she will be interred, along with Dad, in the Union Cemetery located in the Warburg district sometime in the future.  Once burial arrangements have been finalized, we will notify family and friends.

  1. Audrey and I miss your smile and laughter – wishing you were still with us – all our love. Rest in peace, mom.

  2. Dorothy was a very special relative and friend for many years and I will miss her deeply. Her sense of humor was hers alone. Her teachers did not really understand her, but we did . Lorraine

    • I have so many wonderful memories with auntie Dorothy, she sure was a fire cracker. Condolences and peace filled hearts.

  3. She was a great neighbour (25+ years) and friend. She will be missed much.

  4. Dorothy was a wonderful person, I lived at the Stallknecht home for a short time and she had her hands full with now 4 boys in the house. I called her “Ma”, she had such a great sense of humor, and was a wonderful cook. She was always there to listen to your problems and always to lend a helping hand. She was so devoted to her husband Henry, and her boys, Randy, Myles and David and the family. I don’t know how but Dorothy always found the time to keep the house going made sure everybody had what they needed and always had a great meal for everyone to enjoy. Some of my best times was been part of this family.
    Ma, you have more than earned your rest, You are now back together with Henry and family who have passed on.
    Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be part of your family.
    My condolences to Randy, Myles, David and the Family.

    “And Gods hand touched her and she slept”. Until we meet again, Rest in Peace.
