Upcoming Events 
  • It's with great sadness that we mourn the loss of a great friend of the Chargers. Coach Manko's mother, Anne Manko passed away after a brief stay in hospital. Among other things, Mrs. Manko helped organize and prepare team banquet meals for many years. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dale, Susan and the rest of the family at this difficult time.
  • Anne Manko
    It is with much sadness we announce the passing of our loving Mom and Baba, Anne Manko on January 14, 2016 at the age of 80.
    Anne is survived by her son Dale (Susan Morgan), grandchildren James (Desiree) Devine and Autumn (Michael Oehm), great-grandchildren Landin and Lilly Devine; daughter Valerie (Patrick Harrison), grandchildren Tyler Manko Pino and Taylor Harrison, brother Peter (Olga) Nasewich, as well as many nieces and nephews.
    She was predeceased by her parents, Stan and Helen Nasewich, husband Peter, daughter Linda Elder, siblings Mike (Ida) Nasewich, Sophie Hunchak, and Ed Nasewich.
    Anne was born on August 11, 1935 in Mayfair, Saskatchewan.  She grew up on the Fred Nasewich Homestead in the Krydor – Blaine Lake area.
    While working as a switchboard operator she was set up on a blind date with a young man named Peter Manko.  On October 29, 1955 they were married and resided in Saskatoon for the next 2 years.  They moved to Edmonton in 1958 where they were blessed with three children, Dale (1960), Linda (1964) and Valerie (1967). 
    Anne was an employee with a number of food service businesses and later she and Peter were self-employed in the Bingo industry.  She volunteered with many groups and was well known for the food she made for the banquets for the Chargers Football Club.  After Peter was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease she was an active volunteer in the Edmonton chapter.
    Anne worked hard at everything she did.  She was a perfectionist in anything she made with her hands.  She loved to cook, sew quilts, crochet, knit, draw, paint, and made beautiful Ukrainian Easter eggs in many sizes.  She enjoyed entertaining, especially her family.  It was important that there was always enough food for all who dropped in.  She was active until the very end, living alone and cooking her own meals.
    A Celebration of Life will be held at Trinity Funeral Home, 10530-116 Street on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 2 p.m.   As per her wishes, cremation has taken place.   In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Edmonton Food Bank.  Online condolences may be sent though info@trinityfh.com

The Rams Show Their Stuff
Jim Skitsko, Coach of the Sherwood Park Rams, recently showed how the club exemplifies the qualities that we all strive for in the minor football community. The Sherwood Park News published an interview with "the Judge" where he demonstrated the same grace after a losing effort as he has after many winning moments in the past. Following an insightful description of the game, he offered this generous observation:
“I’ve always had the greatest respect for the Chargers and their organization. When I started coaching, I wanted to build a team just like their organization has, and in many ways, they’re still a little better than us — and in many ways, we’re almost as good,”. (

Thank you Jim, please know that we feel the same way about the organization you have built.
