Walker

Leona

Ona

 

WALKER, LEONA (ONA) EVELYN  Ona's families sadly report her passing on May 3, 2005 at Battlefords District Care Centre in Battleford, Saskatchewan. Ona was born at Glencoe, Minnesota on January 16, 1912. She immigrated to Canada as a young child when her father and mother, Robert and Mathilda Petrich, took a homestead between the Quill Lakes north of Wynyard, Saskatchewan. Ona attended the one-room Grandy School in what was, then, the Grandy School District near Wynyard. She married her neighbours' son, the late Conrad (Con) Abram Walker, at Wynyard on September 30, 1934. Con Sr. passed away on June 12, 1995. Ona was one of nine brothers and sisters and the last to pass away. She was also predeceased in 1991 by her grandson, Paul Robert Mazurak Walker, late of North Battleford. Ona is survived by her son, Con Jr. of Oakville, Ontario, and his children and grandchildren, son Rob (Mary) of Mississauga, Ontario and their son Ryan, son Jeff (Suzanne) of Sudbury, Ontario and their children Karly and Ian, son David of Vancouver, B.C. and his son, David Tullio of Sudbury, Ontario and daughter Joanne Brown (Dwayne) of Hong Kong and their daughters Bailee and Dana. She is also survived by her son, Harvey (Jean) of Battleford, and his children and grandchildren, son Shawn (Rhonda Johnson) of High Prairie, Alberta, and his children Ami, Joshua and Adrian of Lethbridge, Alberta, son Guy (Jennifer) of Montreal, Quebec and their daughter, Sidney and daughter Heidi Lesko (Dwayne) of Lethbridge, Alberta and their daughter Breanna. Ona was the quintessential homemaker who followed her husband to Moose Jaw, Montreal, Estevan and Regina with intervening short stops back in Wynyard. She and Con finally settled in the Cathedral District of Regina in 1948 where Con Jr. and Harvey finished their primary and secondary education. Ona was a staunch supporter of Westminster United Church and then Rosemont United Church during her years in Regina. Upon her sons moving away from home, Ona volunteered in the sewing room at the Red Cross and, ultimately, was hired as the sewing room supervisor. It was use of her interpersonal and sewing skills which gave the greatest satisfaction to her. Ona and Con gave up their home in Regina in 1988 and thereafter shared a room in Pioneer Village in Regina until Con Sr. passed away. Shortly after Con's death, Ona moved to the Battlefords Regional Care Home (now Battlefords District Care Centre) in Battleford, where she lived until her passing. Funeral services will be held in Speers Funeral Chapel commencing at 11:00 am on Monday, May 9, 2005 with interment to follow in Regina's Riverside Memorial Park.

Irvin Werner

 

 

KRUG, Irvin Werner Krug passed away peacefully on August 6th, 2003, in his room at Luther Sunset Home in Saskatoon. His loving wife of 65 years, Muriel, and children Ron Krug of Winnipeg, and Cheralyn (Krug) Wiens of Herschel, were at his side to say goodbye as he passed on to his welldeserved rest and eternal reward. Irvin was born at Lorlie, SK, to Conrad and Marie Krug on November 28th, 1907. He received his early education in Lorlie (beginning in 1913 in a school his father had just built) and Abernethy. He completed his high school in Yorkton. He then took his teacher preparation at the Normal School in Regina in 1929-30. He taught elementary school in Waldron, Lorlie, Chickney and Lemberg. He interrupted his teaching career to take up a position as elevator agent in Bear Creek in 1938. Like most things in his life, Irvin took a more exciting road than most. On Friday he was offered the job, but they wanted to hire a married man. So that night he proposed to Muriel Dixon. They were married on Saturday, August 5, 1938, honeymooned on Sunday and showed up for work on Monday as a tired but happily married Saskatchewan Wheat Pool agent. Ron was born in 1942 while they lived in Bear Creek. Irvin then moved to Fleming to take over the elevator there. While there, their daughter Cheralyn was born in 1945. In 1947, he quit his job to take over the family farm. He resumed teaching in 1964 and retired from both teaching and farming in 1974 when they moved to Saskatoon to be near Cheralyn's family. Irvin's activities were too numerous to detail, but music, sport, church and community took centre stage in his life.

They were active members of United Churches in Tantallon, Fleming, Lorlie and Mayfair and Meewasin Valley in Saskatoon.

He was predeceased by his parents, his half siblings Pearly, Wilfred, Johnny and Doris; his siblings Ella (and Ben), Tom (and Aileen), Alma, Richard and Annetta (Roy). He is survived by his devoted wife of 65 years Muriel, his brother Nelson (and Bea), his sister Joyce, his brother-in-law Wilson and his son Ron, and daughter Cheralyn (Berny) and their five loving grandchildren Devin, Nicole, Lauren, Stacey and Teresa.

SNEDDEN, HILDA ELNORA_It is with great sadness, but great memories that we announce the passing of Hilda Snedden, of Pioneer Village on Monday, October 17, 2005 at the age of 98 years with her family by her side. Mum was predeceased by her father, Charles Ripley; her mother Lillian Smith; her stepfather Charles Smith; husband Charles Snedden; brother Tom Ripley; sister-in-law Beth Ripley; brother-in-law Thor Halfso; sister-in-law Margaret Smith and nephew Norman Ripley.

Mum was born in Antwerp, New York on March 28, 1907. When mum was 6 weeks old her family came and homesteaded outside of Ernfold, SK. Throughout her life she lived in many locations, including Assiniboia, Radisson, Kerrobert, Morse, Reno Nevada, Saskatoon and Regina. Mum attended Normal School in Saskatoon and began her teaching career at Charlotte, just outside of Ernfold. During this time she met Charlie Snedden who she married April 6, 1929. Ten years later their only child Lynn was born. Over the years mum had many triumphs and tragedies. Mum taught school in Ernfold for over 2 year when she and dad purchased the General Store, which they owned and operated for 52 years. In 1945, after they finished remodeling their home over the store and paying off their mortgage everything was lost to a fire home and store. Not to be defeated they preserved and rebuilt and new store and house. This house has since been destroyed by a tornado. They sold the store in 1977 and 10 years later moved to Regina. Mum and dad were always very active in the community of Ernfold and enjoyed many, many friendships. They also loved to travel and saw most of the United States and Canada. Many of their holidays also included their two granddaughters. Mum loved to dance, play cards particularly bridge, and belonged to many clubs such as Eastern Star, UCW, Cemetery Association, Bridge Club, Curling Club, Lioness Club as well as participating in all kinds of drama and fashion shows. Mum loved to dance and spoke often of the Charleston as one of her favorites. Mum was young at heart and took extreme care of her appearance, always wearing the latest fashion and always looking younger than her years. Mum was very passionate about her family and had a special love for her two granddaughters Laurie and Terrie. As years passed she extended that love for her great grandchildren Carrie, Kristy, Brittany and Tanner and later still to her great great grandchildren Corbin and Sydney as well as her step-grandchildren Vern, Carla, Glenda and families. In November of 2000, Mum moved from her apartment in Palliser Place into Pioneer Village where she resided until her passing. The family would like to thank the nurses and caregivers of Pioneer Village who have looked after mum (Grandma) over the past 5 years, and in particular the staff of 2East. Your compassion and care has been truly appreciated. At Mum's request, there will be a private family memorial with her final resting place at Ernfold, SK where she will join dad. Those wishing may make donations in Mum's memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan, 2360 2nd Avenue, Regina, SK S4R 1A6. Family and friends are invited to sign a book of condolences at www.obituariestoday.com. Arrangements are entrusted to Regina Funeral Home (306) 789-8850. God made a wonderful mother, A mother who seemed never to grow old, He made her smile of the sunshine, And he molded her heart of pure gold.
