Obituary for Frank William Korb
Frank Korb 80, of Northwood Lodge, Red Lake Ontario and formerly of Stratton Ontario passed away on Monday January 1, 2018.
Frank was born in Morley Twp on July 11, 1937 to parents Anthony and Theresa Korb. Frank began working in the bush at a young age with his father and older brother in addition to farming. As years went on Frank would work at numerous jobs including Tolens while farming and logging with his brother Rueben. He also worked for a time out west but always preferred to stay close to home. After being a bachelor for so many years he met and married Alma, but not just “Alma” it was Alma and her family. He felt like he had the world by the tail, he had a family that was already raised and on their own, with the exception of Greg who was a young teenager still living at home. Frank gladly played the father and grandfather roll. Frank enjoyed gardening, tending his farm animals and frequent visits to the Stratton Café too get the “current events”.
After Alma’s passing Frank sold the farm and moved to the Stratton Manor, but as his health declined he moved to Rainy Crest Long Term Care in Fort Frances and then to Northwood Lodge in Red Lake to be closer to family
He will be lovingly remembered by his step children Larry (Heather), Greg (Liliana), Marilyn (Lorne), four grandchildren and two great grandchildren, his brother Reuben, sisters Margaret and Mary, and numerous, nieces, nephews and many friends.
Frank was predeceased by his parents Anthony and Theresa, his wife Alma, his siblings Anthony (Tony), Julie and Theresa.
A service of Celebration and Remembrance will be held on Friday January 5, 2018 at 1 p.m. at the Northridge Funeral Home, Emo, Ontario. Rev. Eileen Bragg officiating. Interment will take place in Stratton Cemetery at a later date.
