From “Herbert Panrucker – by B. Parlby”

Pioneers and Progress, Alix Clive Historical Club, 1974

Herbert (Bert) Panrucker and his wife Adele (Dolly) came to Alix from Worchester, England, about 1907.  Herbert W. Panrucker started a general store in the hamlet of Alix in partnership with A.G. Holland.  Both husband and wife were very active in the community affairs of the growing village, especially St. Pancras Church, of which he was warden at the time of its dedication.  They were also active in the Masonic and Eastern Star lodges.

H.W. Panrucker was most generous with customers in his store.  Walter Parlby used to tell about the times when he went to pay his grocery bill in the fall after his cattle were sold.  Bert Panrucker would write out a receipt and then give him a pair of boots in appreciation.  Such was store-keeping in the second decade of this century.

Some years late H.W. Panrucker sold the store and bought the Allan Brothers farm as Rennie was rejoining his regiment overseas.  The Panrucker family went into the country to live, on the farm that is now [1974] owned by Ray and Harry McKibbon, (N.1/2 of Sec.6-23-40-W 4th.).

Herbert Panrucker – by B. ParlbyThe Panruckers had two daughters, Millicent and Gertruce.  Both were unusually clever musicians. Millicent was Gold Medallist in Piano, Alberta Ladies’ College, Edmonton.  Gertrude, who married James (jim) Russell, the Mirror lawyer, was organist in St. Monica’s Church for many years.
