We Remember


April 21, 1934 — June 24, 2023

On June 24, 2023, at the age of 89 years, Lina Jeske went to be with her Lord and Saviour.

Left to cherish her memory are her children Siegbert (Heidi), Malis (Raymond), and Marvin (Isolde); grandchildren Kimberly, Kiki, Alayna, and Jason; brother-in-law Geoge Gutzmann, sister-in-law Irma Lehman; and numerous nieces and nephews and other extended family members. She was predeceased by her husband Herbert (d. 2017); sister Ruth Gutzmann (d. 1992); and brother Ernst Lehmann (d. 2016).

Lina was born to her parents, Martha and Adolf Lehmann in 1934 in a German settlement, Zelanka, in eastern Europe.  After the difficult hardships of World War II, the Lehmann family was reunited in Germany in 1951.  Shortly thereafter, in 1952, the Lehmann family immigrated to Canada, initially settling in Winnipeg, MB.

In 1954 Lina married Herbert Jeske and moved to Edmonton, AB, where they raised their three children: Siegbert, Malis, and Marvin.  In 2011 Herbert and Lina moved to Kelowna, BC for the remainder of their retirement years.

Lina will be remembered for her deep, pure, and unconditional love for her family.  She demonstrated this love to her family in a life of support and sacrificial giving.  She will also be remembered for her solid faith in God, who was her refuge and anchor throughout her life’s journey.  She served God faithfully and demonstrated her devotion in prayer and serving in her church community.  Lina was known for her excellent cooking and baking and often opened her heart and home for family, friends, guests, and visitors.
