Siegfried was predeceased by his wife of 60 years, Irene (Nelitz) in May 2012, his brother Bruno, his sister-in-law Ursula, his sister Zilla, and his brother-in-law Erhardt.

A Celebration of Siegfried’s life will be held on Thursday, September 14, 2023 at 11:00am at Terwillegar Community Church (1751 Towne Centre Blvd NW, Edmonton).  Viewing will be held one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow at Glenwood Memorial Gardens.

      Liebe Familie Jahnke, es gibt wenige Dinge, die so schmerzhaft sind, wie der Verlust eines geliebten Menschen. Das Leben ist endlich, doch unendlich sind die Erinnerungen an all die guten Tage, die Liebe und die Momente des Glücks.
      Wir sind im Herzen und Gedanken bei euch, wünschen euch Kraft und Trost in der schweren Zeit! In stiller Verbundenheit Gritt, Sigrid und Peter 🙏
