EDMONTON – On April 9, Marjorie Evelyn Lehman (née Huber) was welcomed into the loving arms of her heavenly Father. Marjorie was the wife of Rev. Dr. Edwin Lehman, Lutheran Church–Canada’s first President after the church body became autonomous in 1988.

Marjorie was born in 1934. She passed away in the presence of family as they prayed, sang, and read Scripture, following several weeks of hospitalization in Edmonton.

Left behind to await a glorious reunion with her are her husband of 58 years, Edwin, her son Rodney, daughters Barbara (Keith) Haberstock, Katherine (Scott) Royce, and grandchildren Matthew, Alexis, Christian, and Ryan Royce, and Joshua Haberstock. She is also survived by her sisters Doreen (Lyle) Bennett, Noreen Booth, and Ruth (Jerry) Erickson, numerous nephews, nieces, cousins and friends. Her church families at Concordia Lutheran Church and elsewhere provided her with a wide circle of treasured friends from around the world.

She was predeceased by her parents, George and Edith Huber, her infant sister Betty, and brother-in-law Alex Booth.

A service celebrating God’s promise of eternal life will take place at Concordia Lutheran Church (5420 – 19A Avenue, Edmonton) on Thursday April 16 at 11:00 a.m., with Rev. Mark Hennig officiating. Those wishing to pay their respects may do so from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. A reception will follow, with Interment at Evergreen Memorial Gardens.

Marjorie’s family has expressed special thanks to the doctors, nurses and medical staff at Station 51, Grey Nuns Hospital, for their compassionate care for Marjorie and for the family during her stay. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested memorial contributions be made to Concordia Lutheran Church (address above) or Concordia Lutheran Seminary (7040 Ada Boulevard, Edmonton, T4B 4E3).

Lutheran Church–Canada requests continued prayers for Dr. Lehman and the family, that the love of Christ and the promise of the resurrection would be their comfort now and always.
