It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ernie Kline on July 13, 2022 at Edmonton, Alberta at the age of 82.

Ernie will be missed lovingly by his wife, Donna, his children, Dean, of Swan Hills, Michelle (Steve) English of Trail BC, Richard Vansen of Spruce Grove; his grandchildren, Lee Proctor of Red Deer, Selina McMillan of Grand Forks, Zackery and Brooke-Lynn Vansen of Edmonton, and Tyson Vansen of Spruce Grove; his sister Bertha Warner, sisters-in-law, Kathy Tigar and Lynne Kline; brother-in-law Blaine Striethorst (Barb) and many nieces, nephews and friends.

He was pre-deceased by his parents, William and Annette Kline, brothers Harvey Tigar and Al Kline; sisters, Yvette Mulderig, Flo Markstrom and Theresa Lockhart; and daughter-in-law, Dawn Kline.

Ernie enjoyed encouraging people to explore and develop their skills, spending time with friends and family and designing mechanical systems.  He loved the outdoors and taking friends and family into the woods.

He was bitten by the travel bug and especially enjoyed exploring Europe, relaxing in Sint Maarten and Maui and spending quality time at Laurier Lake.

The family would like to thank Gary O’Coin at the Sturgeon Hospital and the Staff at St. Joseph’s Auxiliary Hospital Hospice for their support and compassionate care.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Trinity United Church (8810 Meadowlark Road NW Edmonton) on Saturday August 13, 2022  at 2 pm.  Reception follows in the basement.

Remains will be scattered in the Memorial Garden at Trinity as well as the cemetery in St Victor, Saskatchewan.

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made to the charity of your choice.

  1. Great man! Enjoyed my talks with Ernie! God Bless!

  2. Our condolences to Donna and family. Ernie was such an easy going and positive guy. His smile lit up the room. We always enjoyed our time with him.

  3. Ernie was a wonderful warm person and a tower of strength for Donna and each other’s families. I have many great memories over the years of the times I spent with them. They were a “special” couple. My condolences to the families on their loss. I will be out-of-province for Ernie’s Memorial Service/Celebration of Life but my thoughts and prayers will be with you. May the “Spirit of Ernie” live on in us all.

  4. Donna and family, my heart goes out to you all in the loss of such a wonderful man. Hugs to you each of you, especially you, my dear Donna.
    I know that Ernie will live on with your memories even though it is tough to not have him here physically. Take care.

  5. My deepest condolences to my friend Donna and her family and Ernie’s family and friends. One of my best memories of Ernie, besides our great trip out west, is when he and Donna came to Toronto and Ernie wanted to go to the War Plane Museum in Hamilton and I thought “boring”……needless to say we had a great day. It was so interesting and we had a lot of fun and we finished our trek around the museum with french fries. He will be missed.

  6. My sincere condolences to Donna and family. I have known Ernie for many years. What started out with business developed into a friendship long after he retired. We would make it a priority to go for lunches especially around Christmas time. He was a great demonstrator of selflessness. I loved you Ernie, will miss you, and thanks for making the World a better place for all.
    Steve A.

  7. Sincere sympathy to you, Donna, and your family. Ernie sounds like a wonderful person and there must have been two travel bugs that bit such that you both enjoyed that passion together. I hope that the memories shared will be a comfort as well as thoughts and prayers that family, friends and colleagues send your way.
    Take care,

  8. Donna, my heart goes out to you and your family for the journey you have traveled together over this past while. I pray for peace and strength for you and all your family. May your memories be sweet, as you give gratitude to God for the many enjoyable times. Warmly, Dave

  9. Donna, my sincere condolences to you and your family. May fond memories of Ernie and time with family provide comfort during this sad time.
    Be well,
