Anthony Yungwirth

Obituary of Anthony Carl Yungwirth

Sadly, the family of Anthony “Tony” Carl Yungwirth announce his passing on February 20, 2024, at the age of 92. Tony was born on July 2, 1931, to Herman and Caroline Yungwirth. He lived his whole life on the farm in the Whitfield District.


When Tony was 14 he spotted Adelaide “Addie” Litwin at a church picnic. She became the love of his life; they married on October 27, 1953 and were blessed with 70 years of marriage.


He was very devoted to his family and faith. This was apparent through his volunteer work in the church and how he loved having his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren by his side.


Tony instilled in his family traditional values, hard work, honesty, integrity, and family principles. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and passed these traditions on to his family. The family lived on the wild game he hunted as their main source of meat. He also had a keen sense of direction and knew how to follow nature’s signs in any bush. He and Addie took their family berry picking many Sundays after church to supply the family with canned fruit and jams for winter eating. His many fruit trees were also a source of pride for him.


Tony was a farmer at heart and many times you would find him out “checking the crops”. He also worked as a lineman for the Briarlea telephone company. Being a good neighbour, he was always willing to lend a helping hand, from welding, grain testing or installing sand-points. If something was broken he had a way of fixing it; nothing was ever thrown out. Once he blew up a coffee pot with the air compressor trying to fix it; Addie wasn’t too happy. Volunteering was also an important part of his life; he was a trustee and secretary on the Whitfield and Redwing School Boards; was a founding member of the Buckland Co-op Fire Department where he served for 40 years. He was also an active member of the Knights of Columbus of the Fourth Degree


He is survived by his wife, Adelaide; his nine children, Audrey (Rick) Boyko and children, Roslyn (Jeff) Lake and children, Jaxon and Alexander, Eric (Lindsay) and children, Ava and Jake, and Lyle (Sheri) and children, Kole and Carter; Stephen (Kim) and children, Jillian (Sean) Ash and Andrew (Stephanie); Deborah (Tony) Laird and children, Stephen (Jarilyn) Miller, son, Rowan, and Brian (Reagan) Miller, daughter, Olivia; Allan (Gayle) and children, Danielle and Mitchell; Joseph (Darlene) and children, Justin and Nicholas; Francis (Cathy) and children, Todd (Lisa), and children, Nathan and Logan, and Amy (Sean) McCagherty, and daughter, Alexis; Roger (Cheryl) and children, Matthew, and children, Brooke and Brynn, Michelle (Brad) Weinrauch, and Rachel (Seth) Cholodnuik; Carmen (Joey) Tatlow and children, Taylor (Phil) Gareau and children, Payton, Wyatt and Hudson, and Toni (Austin) Demorest; Daniel (Jeneen) and children, Hannah, Madison and Abbie. As well as his sister; Magdelina Bernier, in-laws; Marcel Roy, Annette Yungwirth, Harry Litwin, Ted Litwin, Mary Litwin, Olive Litwin and Irene Litwin.
