JULY 24,1952 – JANUARY 10, 2023


With his wife and daughter by his side, Rudy Lyle Krahn entered Heaven peacefully at the age of 70.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Marena, daughter Krystena and son-in-law Ian and his two grandchildren Charlie and Angelena. Rudy is also survived by his two sisters, Becky (Keith); Eleanor (Mike) and his brother Ted (Rhonda), as well as many extended family members and friends.

Rudy had a passion for life through family, music, tennis and travel. His sense of humour defined his personality and wherever he was or whoever he met; laughter would be centre stage.

There will be a come and go Celebration of Life in Rudy’s honour at Breezy Bend Golf & Country Club (7620 Roblin Boulevard., Winnipeg) on Friday, January 20 from 2:30 – 5:00 p.m., with a Memorial Service at 3;30 p.m. An Interment Service will be held at Rivers Mennonite Cemetery (Provincial Road 250, Rivers, Manitoba) on Sunday, January 22 at 3:00 p.m.

The family extends their gratitude to the Grace Hospital for their professional and compassionate care.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the CNIB, in remembrance of Riffey and Tukona; the two seeing eye dogs in our extended family who held a special place in Rudy’s heart.

Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Faure

Word equal to the Very High one, our sole hope

Eternal of both the Earth and the Heavens2

Of this peaceful night, we break the silence

Divine Saviour, cast your gaze down on us!


Spread on us the fire of your mighty grace

So all of Hell flees upon hearing your voice

Dissipate the sleep of a yearning soul

Which leads us to forget your laws!

Oh Christ, be favourable to this faithful people

Now gathered to bless you

Welcome the hymns they offer to your immortal glory

And may they come back fullfilled!
