Laurelei Primeau Joseph Dembeck came to Canada as a small boy in the company of his aunt, Wilhelmina (Minnie) Kopp (married name Selzer) and his grandmother, Krystina Feller Kopp. Joe was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1889 with no known siblings. We don't know why he came to Canada without his parents and assume that he was orphaned as a youngster. Minnie's husband Michael died, and she remarried to Ernst Klebe. The family lived outside of Winnipeg.

Joe sold shoelaces on the streets of Winnipeg to earn money, and eventually signed on as a farmhand, travelling from Manitoba to Saskatchewan to help with the harvest. Joe married the widow Mantei in Aberdeen, Saskatchewan, and raised a family consisting of her children and the children they had together. After her early death her married young Martha Riege of Winnipeg, and Martha became mother to the Dembeck/Mantei clan, adding two children of her own. Martha also died young, in 1933. Joe survived until 1967.
