POLOWY, Laverne Joseph
May 19, 1928 – June 1, 2015
It is with deep sadness and fond memories that we announce the death of Laverne at the age of 87. He was born in Mundare, Alberta, and was the oldest of six children born to Joseph Polowy and Laura Ahrendt. The family moved to Vancouver in 1942 where Laverne worked at Hammond Furniture, Collier’s Motors, eventually retiring from Wolfe Chevrolet. He married Agnes (nee Eluk) in 1949 and they were longtime residents of Burnaby, moving to Chilliwack upon retirement. He enjoyed square dancing, golf, gardening, and RVing, spending the winter months in Arizona. Laverne was a loyal, honest, hardworking man whose family meant everything to him. He was predeceased by his wife Agnes, brother Gordon and brothers-in-law Ray Aney, and Lyle Homey. He will be missed and lovingly remembered by sisters Winnifred Homey, Marilyn Langlois, Joanne Aney, brother Ken Polowy (Barbara), sisters-in-law Pat Polowy, Joan Elun, many nephews and nieces, friends and family. Respecting his wishes of no service, the family will have a private gathering.
