Joseph (Joe) Liebel

March 14, 1930 - May 14, 2023


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Husband and Father, Joe Liebel on May 14th, 2023.

Joe was born on March 14, 1930 in Loon Lake SK and moved to Osoyoos in the early 40’s with his family.  He was predeceased by his parents, John Sr. and Rosalia, his siblings Ludvina (Rubner), Edward, John Jr., and Mary (Moreau).

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Christine, his children Mark, Anita and Karen, in-laws Pearl, Linda & Dominic, Bridget & Rod, Liz, and countless nieces and nephews.

Joe was a business owner for much of his life including as an orchardist and bulldozing company.  Prior to retirement he worked for the school board as a custodian.  He was happiest puttering around the yard or working on projects in his garage.  He was an avid outdoorsman spending summers camping, fishing and foraging along roads he bulldozed up the Christian Valley.

He was a charter member of the Osoyoos Golf Club and bulldozed much of the first 9 holes.  He was active in the Elks and Knights of Columbus.  He spent much of his retirement golfing whenever possible.

The funeral mass will be held at St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Osoyoos at 10 am on Tuesday, May 23rd followed by the urn interment and committal at the Osoyoos Lakeview Cemetery. A reception at the Osoyoos Legion Hall will follow the interment.

Donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC.

The Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Service & Crematorium Staff send our condolences to family and friends.

From: Judy Dallas
Relation: Through work and some of his family members.

I met Joe close to 30 years ago through my work. He was fair, spoke honestly, and was always concerned about the welfare and the best for the residents at the Villa. He had a good sense of humour and he and Chris were just a lovely couple. Knowing some of the other family members, there will always be great stories and memories to cherish. May he be at Peace now.

From: Alison & Bridget

Our condolences, Karen.
We will forever remember the sweet flavour from the expertly hand picked/cracked walnuts that your Dad shared with you and then us.
From your stories, he seemed like a real swell guy and surely he will be missed by many.
Much love, Alison and Bridget
