Rosalind Catherine Poelzer (nee Schleper)
March 13, 1937 - October 12, 2017
Sadly we announce the passing of our mother, Rosalind Catherine Poelzer at Humboldt District Hospital, Humboldt, Sask.
Rose was the third of twelve children born to Edward and Helen (nee Menz) Schelper. Rose learned at an early age how to help around the house and provide care to her siblings. She spent her childhood in the community of St. Gregor, Sask. Rose moved to Humboldt after her schooling to work at Bruiser’s General Store and then worked at SaskTel as a telephone operator following in the footsteps of her mother. It was in Humboldt where she met Ron Poelzer, and the two of them were married on November 9, 1957. Rose continued to work for SaskTel while they began their family. In 1966, Ron’s job took them to Biggar, Sask. where they continued to raise their four daughters. Rose was a very active person participating in many sports including swimming, tennis, golf, downhill and cross-country skiing, softball, and curling. She also learned to knit and crochet and was a very accomplished seamstress.
Rose became a dedicated member of the St. Gabriel Roman Catholic Parish. Rose was an active volunteer with the CWL, achieving her 50-year pin, as well as being involved with the Diamond Lodge, Curling Club, Donors Choice and New Creation Community Players.
Rose and Ron faithfully sponsored education funds to assist priests in becoming ordained. They also participated in the Refugee Sponsorship Program with the Catholic Church and welcomed three brothers from Vietnam into their home where Rose taught them English and assisted in their transition into the community.
When Ron retired in 1992, they moved to Turtle Lake and continued volunteering in the communities of Glaslyn and Livelong, Sask. In 1997, they were named Saskatchewan’s Knights of Columbus Family of the Year. They maintained the local golf course in the summer and the cross-country ski trails in the winter.
Following Ron’s death in 2011, she moved back to Humboldt to be closer to her siblings and reunite with several local friends. Rose became active in St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church and sang in the church choir and the Silver Bells singing group. Throughout her life, Rose was dedicated to helping others whether visiting the sick, or driving other seniors to various events.
Rose will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her four daughters and their spouses, twelve grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren: Tammy (Jeff) McNaught of Saskatoon, Sask. and their children, Carissa and her children, Emily, Carter, Cohen and Brady; Ryley and son; Dante; Jenna (Justin) Manning and their children; Henry and Hazel, and Nathan; Cindy (Randy) Weekes of Biggar and their children, Lacey (Nick) Jan-King and their children, Amara and Surayya, Marshall, and Alexandra (Andrew Kovach); Corrine (Randy) Chappell of Calgary, Alta. and their children, Melissa (Russ) McKenzie and son, Wells; and Ashley (Jared) Boyes and their children, Kinley and Jaelynn; and Mary Jo (Harry) Danychuk of Biggar and their family, Cody (Shelbie), Braden (Nikki Martens), and Areanna; and siblings, Mary McTaggart, Annette Zawada, Vera (Doug) Veness, Alan (Karen) Schleper, and Wendy (Ken) Bernhard; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mom was predeceased by her parents, Edward and Helen Schleper; husband, Ron Poelzer; and brothers and sisters, Evelyn Grieman, Gerald Schleper, Roman Schleper, Eleanor Classen, Dianne Fink and Edwina Schleper.
A special thanks to Doctor Huber and the nursing staff at Humboldt District Hospital.
The Funeral Mass for Rose will be celebrated on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church, Humboldt.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Rose’s memory to: St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church designated to the training of priests.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Malinoski & Danyluik Funeral Home, Humboldt, (306-682-1622).

Agnes Rea (nee Fraser)
November 2, 1919 - October 3, 2017
Agnes Rea passed away at the Biggar Long Term Care facility on October 3, 2017, one month short of her 98th birthday.
Agnes was the second of three children born to Angus and Carrie Fraser on November 2, 1919 in Lumsden, Scotland. She came to Canada with her mother and her sisters, their father having come the year previously. He had a job and a home at Ruthilda, Sask. for them to come to.
Agnes is survived by her children and two foster daughter… Jean Parker (Bob), Patricia Rea-Auckland (Ken), Edwin Rea, Dennis Rea (Alida), Ian Rea (Leila), Bradley Rea (Michelle), Rita Fineday (Dale), Joana Vassell, Brenda Falcon and Arlene Perron; grandchildren, Stuart Parker (Carla), Sharon Lyons, (Keon), Scott Parker (Debbie), Kevin Goring (Anita), Wesley Goring, Chad Goring (Tracy), Karla Wilson (Scott), Leslie Rea (Tammy), Harley Rea (Jodie), Angela Rea, Nicole Rea (Logan), Braden Rea, Courtney Rea; Berlin Bear (Caitlynn), Alicia Vassell, Sammila Vassell, Jordon Vassell; great-grandchildren, Dylan, Maya and Hayley Parker; Mathew and Danielle Lyons, Cody, Kyle and Riley Parker; Chantalle Goring Cloarec (Ben); Deanna and Darcy and Emily Goring; Chalyssa and Caine Wilson; Jordon and Justine, Isabelle, Autumn and Owen Rea; Aliyah and Brooklyn Kessler; Tyler, Henry and Tavana Thunderblanket; Emory, Shawn, Leddie, and Lexie Bear; Tia Vassell.
Agnes was predeceased by her parents, Angus and Carrie Fraser; her husband, Graham Rea (2005); her sisters, Jessie (Campbell) Wood and Margaret (Peggie) Burton on Sept. 17, 2017; her brothers-in-law, Angus Campbell, E.O. Wood and Allan Burton; her daughter-in-law, Sheila (Adams) Rea; granddaughters, Dawn Rea and Robin Thunderblanket and by Robin’s husband, Sheldon Thunderblanket; nieces Mary Kidd and Julia Bartier, and her husband, Bernard Bartier.
Agnes had a passion for playing scrabble, bingo and for writing. She had numerous stories about the old days published in The Senior Paper. She played scrabble at tournaments and got Leila playing and going to tournaments. She didn't just play but won at bingo, even rallying two weeks prior to her passing to play bingo at the Lodge on her own and was able to mark the correct numbers.
Agnes grew a huge garden, picked berries, canned fruits and vegetables. She worked on the farm hauling grain, milking cows, raising sheep for lambs and wool, raising turkeys, hatching eggs. She was a fast milker and a stooker or hoeing the garden. She was her father's son, doing the outside work as a kid and continued to enjoy the outside work best when she married. Agnes married Graham Rea in 1940.
She was a fantastic baker, bread, buns, pies and cookies were always at hand. Agnes loved kids, horses, dogs, gardening, reading.
Every picture we have of Mom as a young person has a dog or a horse in it. She loved horses and they were a big part of the farm, for work, riding and getting the kids to school whether they went by cutter, tobaggan or buggy.
Agnes belonged to the United Church, the U.C.W and Grassdale Community Club. She enjoyed a trip back to Scotland and seeing the house she was born in, but the most part liked to stay home.
Funeral Service was held on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 2 p.m. from Biggar United Church with Rev. Linsell Hurd officiating. Organist, Doreen Dubreuil; Eulogist was given by Ian Rea; readers were Nicole Rea and Chantalle Cloarec. Honourary Bearers are all those who shared in Agnes' life. Interment will be at a later date.

The residents and Activity Department of Biggar Health Centre would like to thank everyone for helping and coming out to our Fall Tea and Bake Sale. It was a big success because of everyone that supported us.
We, the family of Cindy, would like to take a moment of your time, to THANK YOU for the love, support and understanding at our time of need. Thanks to the hospital staff, ambulance staff and Dr. Muller; for friends and family that stopped by to visit Cindy; for the flowers, food and donation to the charity of your choice. Thanks to Pastor Sarah; to Jim Rickwood for the eulogy, it was great; to the ladies that helped at the luncheon and everybody that came out to celebrate Cindy's life. Thanks to Bob and Ed for their professional service. If we have missed anyone, please forgive us, as we're broken now but we shall mend; and God willing, we shall be strong again.

The Miller Family announces with profound sadness the passing of Felix on September 17, 2017.
We wish to extend our gratitude to the palliative care team and the many health professionals, Dr. Yahyaee and Dr. Kemp of Wilkie and Dr. Muller of Biggar who cared for Dad in a respectful and devoted manner. Thank you to Vivian and Father George for your words of comfort; thank you to Ed and Bernadette Kobelsky for all your help and support, the mass servers Jeff Schmidt and Terry Kobelsky; thank you to the ladies of the Leipzig community for making, serving and cleaning up before and after the abundant and wonderful lunch; thank you to the music ministry, the organist Louise Souilett-Hawkins and the Landis Senior Choir; thank you to the Honour Guard, Mount Carmel Knights of Columbus #5549; thank you for all the flowers, food, phone calls, tributes and masses; thank you to Eternal Memorials Funeral Services of North Battleford, Sask. for your caring and professional service; thank you to everyone for their prayerful support and sharing the celebration of our "Dad's" life.
During this time of sorrow, we learn how much our family, friends, neighbours and community means to us.
"Perhaps you sent us flowers or made us a meal
Perhaps you sent a lovely card or maybe we saw you there
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words that anyone would say
Perhaps you were not there at all but kept us in your thoughts and prayers."
Our loving thanks to you all…
Georgina Miller; Bryan and Sandra Miller; Roxanne and Cameron Steinacher; Todd and Rhonda Miller; and their families.
