ARTHUR WILLIAM GABEL (published on September 13, 2008)

ARTHUR WILLIAM GABEL June 4, 1923 - September 9, 2008 It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Arthur Gabel at East Gate Lodge on September 9, 2008 at the age of 85. Arthur was born in Ladywood to parents John and Edith (Otto) Gabel. Edith passed away January 15, 1968 and John on August 10, 1968. After their passing Arthur went to live with his cousin Grace and her husband Ernie Novakowski and, after Ernie's passing, was with Grace until late 1998. We are grateful that Arthur was placed in a very caring group home until March, 2005 when East Gate Lodge became his home. Much appreciation is extended to caregiver Mr. Ralph Thompson for the caring and compassion extended to Arthur. Arthur's life was centered around the Beausejour Branch of Association for Community Living. It was here that he found companionship and contentment and was truly happy. We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the very special people there. Arthur was a kind and gentle soul with a wonderful sense of humour that will be forever remembered by Grace's children, Debby and Ernie Hlady and their children, Kirstyn and Kyle, Bob and Jocelyn Novakowski and their children, Dylan and Dallas (Regina) and Randy and Roxane Novakowski and their daughter Chelsey, as well as his extended family at ACL Beausejour. Special thanks as well to the wonderful staff at East Gate Lodge for all the TLC bestowed on Arthur over the years. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, September 15, 2008 at Russell Funeral Chapel, 437 Park Avenue in Beausejour, Manitoba with Pastor Mark Koenker officiating.
