In addition to creating a Queen-sized quilt, and a Memorial Quilt, Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary quilters are donating at least six wheelchair quilts to residents of Fischer Place.
Long-time residents will remember Gladys Newton, who moved here in the ’70s.
Sadly, Gladys passed away on Jan. 27, aged 88, after residing at Fischer Place since 2014.
Her late husband, Ken, who passed away in June 2016, originated Deka Lake & District Ratepayers’ Association (DLDRA).
Sincere sympathy is extended to the Newtons’ offspring, families and friends.
We are deeply saddened to learn that Wolfgang Zink passed away on Feb. 8 at the age of 86. His was the first family to become property owners in Deka Subdivision in 1969, which led to many friends buying here. He moved here permanently in 1990 and was a mainstay of DLDRA; and instrumental in increasing the quantity of fish stocked in the lake.
Wolf was predeceased by Erna, his wife of 60 years, and is survived by his second wife, Catherine, his three children, six grandchildren, and two great-grand-children, who will continue the family traditions at Deka Lake.
