Jerry Charles ALTHOUSE
July 27, 1949 - September 13, 2018
Jerry Charles Althouse passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at the age of 69 years old in Biggar, Sask. He was born July 27, 1949 in Wilkie, Sask.
Jerry liked spending time with his family playing cards visiting and talking farming with neighbours and friends. He loved watching his grandchildren play hockey, softball and 4-H light horse events. Many great memories were made on family fishing trips. He also enjoyed hunting with his son Quint and some of his neighbourhood friends.
Jerry married Gail in 1968 and together they took over the family farm in Handel, Sask. until 2013 when Jerry’s health started to decline, and in June 2015 they regrettably had to move into Biggar to be closer to Dr. Anton Muller.
Jerry spent most of his last winter in the Biggar Hospital until the decision had to be made that he was unable to return home. July 13, 2018 the Biggar Long Term Care Home became his home until September 13, 2018 when he lost his lengthy battle to his illnesses.
A Private Family Graveside Service was held on Saturday, September 29, 2018, 12:30 p.m., at Landis Cemetery, Landis, Sask. with Wayne Oscvirk officiating.
Celebration of Life Tea was held Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Landis Community Complex, Landis, Sask. with Albert Laval as Master of Ceremonies. Eulogists were his children, Quint Althouse and Nevada Leschinski; and Book Attendants were Larrissa Althouse, Sydney Leschinski, Charmayne Campbell. Honourary Bearers were all those who shared in Jerry’s life, and active Urn Bearer was Raymond Althouse.
Jerry is survived by his loving wife of 50 years and best friend, Gail (nee Lehnert); children, Quint (Delaine), Nevada (Trent); grandchildren, Raymond (Ahnastasia), Larissa, Jordy and Sydney; great-granddaughter, Charmayne; two sisters, Marie (Wayne) Oscvirk and Sharon Pippin; along with many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Raymond Edgar; mother, Myrtle Faye (nee Gilles); and sister, LaDorne, and a very special aunt and uncle, Phyllis (nee Gilles) and Mac Martin.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Jerry Althouse may be made to the University of Saskatchewan Crop Research Fund.

The family of Phyllis Mason would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the staff of the Biggar Hospital and Care Facility for the excellent care and compassion show to Mom during her stay -- one that she warmly considered and called "home".
A special thanks goes out to everyone who was involved with the service; Grondin Funeral Service, Designs by Ann, Reverend Karen Kuzek, Cathy Donahue and the United Church choir, Bob Lemon and Dennis Notschke, all the family members who took part in the service and to everyone who attended.
We express our gratitude for all the support and kindness received from family and friends during our time of grief to those of you who brought gifts of food and flowers, who made phone calls and who generously donated to the Biggar Health Activity Centre and Leney Cemetery on Mom's behalf.
We appreciated the lovely lunch served by the Perdue Rink Committee and the delicious roast beef supper catered to the family.
It was a "difficult time" and we assure you with your love, support and kindness, this "difficult time" was eased. You brought us comfort that will never be forgotten.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts…
The Mason and Polovick families.
Many thanks from the Silvernagles for all the support given us with Gabe's passing. Thanks for the visits, cards, food, flowers and donations to the Junior Golf fund. The social time at the community hall was overwhelming. We were sorry we couldn't meet everyone. Many thanks to the C.W.L. for serving the lunch.
