George Elbert Labenske Obituary
Labenske, George Elbert SAN DIEGO We sadly said goodbye to our father, George Elbert Labenske, 95 on Oct. 2 after a brief illness. Born in Round Rock, TX to George & Loretta Labenske, Elbert grew up on the small family farm. At an early age he gave his life to Jesus Christ & answered the call to the ministry. He attended Bethany Nazarene College (now Southern Nazarene U.) & pastored Nazarene churches in TX, AR, OR & CA for over 40 yrs. Dad was blessed with good health & independence. He was an avid golfer & shared his beliefs & signature humor on & off the course until only months prior to his illness. Elbert will be missed by those who knew & loved him as well as those who have been touched by his kindness, compassion & humor. Dad was preceded in death by his beloved wife Lois, parents, siblings Victor Labenske, James Labenske, Marion Cooley, Berta Moss & Louise Labenske. He is survived by his children Linda Lynn, Karen Miller, Victor Labenske, grandchildren & great grandchildren. A memorial service will be held on Sat. at 2 PM at San Diego First Church of the Nazarene, 3901 Lomaland Drive. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to scholarships in his name at Point Loma Nazarene University, Southern Nazarene University or Northwest Nazarene University.
