May 19, 1932 - March 19, 2023


On Sunday, March 19, 2023, our beloved father and grandfather Henry Loewen passed away suddenly, at the age of 90. We are heartbroken to lose someone so special but at the same time we celebrate that our dad is at home with Jesus. He was deeply committed to God, his family & actively served his community.

Henry was born at the home of his maternal grandparents on May 19, 1932. He was the first of 9 children. Over his 90 year life he lived in Manitoba, North Dakota and Alberta. He passed into Glory on March 19, 2023.

He leaves to mourn his daughter Lois & Gord, Amber & Cody, Daughter in Law Janice, Natasha, Nathan (Sadie) and Krista, Son Brian and Rosella, Autumn, Ethan (Rholton, Brielle), Rhett & Elsa, Tori and Sam (Hugh), Max & Kennedy; son Glenn & Laurel, Logan, Morgan & Benjamin. Fiance June Arychuk. His siblings Anne Krueger, Bill (Janet), Helen (Vic) Hiebert, Rudy (Roberta), Susie (Alvin) Enns, John (Verna), Linda (Bob) Penner & Rose (Pete) Dueck. Henry was predeceased by his parents Andrew & Tina, son Vincent and his wife Elizabeth.

Henry was raised in a farm family, near Moore Park, Manitoba. While still a teenager he began working as a mechanic in Brandon, Manitoba. This was where he met & married Elizabeth (in 1956). In 1960, their first child, Lois was born, and the small family moved to Winnipeg where Henry attended seminary at the Mennonite Brethren Bible College. Upon completion of his Divinity training the family moved to North Dakota, where Henry pastored the Rosehill Mennonite Brethren Church. The family grew in size, Vince born in 1963, Brian in 1967. In 1968 Henry was called to pastor the Lakeview Mennonite Brethren Church in Lethbridge, Alberta. He pastored full time for 2 years. Glenn completed the family in 1970. Henry continued to work part time for the church while attending University of Lethbridge as a full time undergraduate student. Henry’s university training led to employment with Alberta Social Services, and as he climbed the management ladder, the family moved to Grande Prairie, Medicine Hat, Vermilion & St Paul. Henry concurrently used his ministry skills to assist churches in all the communities he lived. He also had a heart for summer camp ministry and served as camp speaker and in various support roles in camp ministry throughout his life. When he retired in 1992 he had ample time and a sense of God calling him and Elizabeth to serve at Belle View Bible Camp. Henry later volunteered with Victim Services for 12 years. In 2002 he and Elizabeth began attending the Glendon Evangelical Church. He provided leadership at the Glendon Evangelical Fellowship Church up to the time of his passing. In the past year Henry also enjoyed leading monthly Chapel Services for seniors at Chartwell Emerald Hills Retirement Residence (Sherwood Park, AB) where he was planning to move in May.

A viewing will be held on Friday, March 24 at 4:00 pm at Grace Gardens Funeral Chapel, St. Paul. A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2:00 pm at the St. Paul Alliance Church with Pastor Calvin Andringa officiating.

Our condolences to Henry’s family on the loss of their father and grandfather. Henry was a gentle man and a true gentleman. Herb always cut his hair and they enjoyed their time together talking about vehicles, a passion they shared.

We offer our sincere condolences to Henry’s family. We knew Henry through Victim Services and then carried on our friendship when we met each other walking. Such a dedicated, admirable man. He will be sincerely missed.

Relation: brother-in-law

Dear Lois, Brian, Glen, and all extended family. What I appreciated most about Henry was his unfailingly polite kindness to me. I had not experienced that level of sincerity, and it always made me warm up to him. As well, he was always able to laugh and joke good naturedly. It seemed he brought this quality to every interaction I had with him. I so appreciated this. Even now, when I see this lovely photo of him, his friendliness and kindness comes shining through. I would like to be more like this. Thank you Henry. Take good care, family.
