Councillor Eike Riemann

Councillor Riemann was born in Germany near Berlin in 1941.  His family managed to get away before the invasion of Russian Troops in 1945, which destroyed 65% of the city including his family's property. They initially sought refuge with relatives in Bavaria, but at the request of Eike's mother’s father, they moved north again to live with him.  It eventually became known as East Germany where he went to school. In 1955 they managed to escape to the West and while his family lived in a refugee camp, Eike left for an apprentice ship to become an electrician.

In 1964 he decided to immigrate to Canada and spent the first 11 years in Ontario. When employment opportunities declined he moved to Alberta to work in the oilfield. In January of 1979 he managed to get a position with a company that eventually became the largest oil drilling company in Canada, also operating in Europe and the US.  

Working as electrical superintendent provided the opportunity for Eike to interact with employees as well as Government Agencies here and abroad. In 2002 he joined an electrical company working as QA/QC manager on large projects in and outside Alberta until his retirement in March of 2013.

Since Eike has a daughter whose husband grew up in Stewart and they returned to live here; being retired and at their request, he chose to buy a house in this community and make it his home.

Councillor Maureen Tarrant

Councillor Tarrant was born and raised in small town Saskatchewan, where her Dad bought grain for the Wheat Pool. After High School she worked at a variety of jobs, none of which she could see herself doing for the rest of her life. Maureen moved from Saskatchewan to Stewart in 1971 searching for an adventure. You could say she found one.

She met her husband here where they raised their 2 sons. Other than a short hiatus in northern Alberta, Stewart was always home and after five years away they could not wait to return.

Maureen is currently semi retired; working casual at the Stewart Health Centre. She has done accounting work for 30 plus years and owned a business with her husband.

Their down time is usually spent fishing on the Portland Canal. When they both retire full time this is where they will spend a majority of their time.
