87 years

In loving memory of Herbert Mueller who was born in Germany and raised during the war. 

It had its many challenges so he decided to move to Canada along with his young bride Gerda in 1961.

They landed in Edmonton and found farm work with Palmer and Berit Hagen north of Donalda. 

Three years later they bought the Bob Lee farm along the Meeting Creek southeast of Donalda. 

They raised three sons on this mixed farm: Norbert, Mike and Claus.

Herb’s favourite hobbies were hunting and fishing.  When he got to fish in the ocean he was hooked.  He took several trips with his sons and grandsons and a few friends.  This year he filled three tags, two deer and a moose. 

He was an avid reader, followed the stock market and loved storytelling.

He could sit at the kitchen table for hours telling his family and friends his stories.  We will miss that the most as he was such an interesting man who loved to share.

Herb has joined his son Norbert and will be sadly missed by his wife of 60 years Gerda Mueller of Donalda, daughter-in-law Lisa Mueller (Barry) of Red Deer, and her sons Travis (Tara) and Derek (Brad); son Mike Mueller (Mary) of Donalda and their sons, Clinton (Amelia), Blair (Haylie), and Alden; and son Claus Mueller (Sandra) of Fort Saskatchewan and their children Trevor and Brianna. 

He will be sadly missed by one brother, two sisters and two sisters-in-law, and their families in Germany.

Herb was a faithful, Godly man, who loved his church, his Lord and his family. Rest in Peace.

A funeral service for the late Herbert Mueller was held on Sat. Jan. 15, 2022 at the Sharon Lutheran Church in Donalda, Alta. with Albern Bergstrom officiating.  

Herb was laid to rest at Spruce Coulee Cemetery beside his son Norbert.
