Obituary of Vernon Allen ROSTE

ROSTE, Vernon Allen Vernon Allen was the tenth child of Martin & Anna Roste. He was born on October 6, 1928 near Preeceville, SK. Vern graduated high school at LCBI in Outlook, SK. He enjoyed many sports and eventually became provincial horseshoe champion for Saskatchewan, BC and Manitoba. Vern worked in many diverse fields from farming, logging, construction, to electrical. In 1951 he surrendered to Jesus Christ and also met the love of his life, Sonja Berg. They married in 1955. Vern answered God’s call and become a pastor in 1957. He then moved his wife and daughter Lynn (born in 1956) to Saskatoon. Their son (Terry) was born in 1958. Then two daughters joined the family, Debbie in 1961 and Valerie in 1963. Their final child Cindy joined them in 1968. As a Lutheran Minister he served parishes in Saskatchewan, BC, Alberta, and Manitoba. He lived his life for his family but even more so for his Lord Jesus Christ. Finally, in 2000 Vern and Sonja retired and moved to Moose Jaw, SK, and then to Strathmore, AB. Vern and Sonja formed a cleaning company (V & S Janitorial) up until 2015. He continued to help minister at Hope church until his health deteriorated earlier this year.
