August 15, 1968 – September 11, 2020

We are heartbroken to announce an amazing person has left this world – set free of cancer. Tim Henderson will be remembered as a caring, friendly guy who was always there to help in any situation. Besides being such a strong warrior against this relentless disease he was also a fire fighter, hockey & ball player, outdoor enthusiast, dog lover, and had a sense of humour that never let him down.

Tim passed away peacefully, on his terms, at home and surrounded by family on Friday, September 11th, 2020, at 52 years old. He will be greatly missed by his dedicated wife, Becky, their wonderful kidults, Megan and Blake, and their family dogs, Buster and Odin. He was the son of Ken and Sal Henderson (Perth, ON.), son-in law of Bob Cote (Saskatoon, SK.) and Sheryl (Doug) McPhee Cote (Weyburn, SK.). He was also a brother to Linda (Denis) Myers and Doug (Lisa) Henderson as well as a brother-in law to Tamara (Simon) Game. Tim will be greatly missed by the rest of his family and friends around the globe.

One celebration of life will take place in Saskatoon (TBA) and another celebration of life will take place in Perth, Ontario at a later date due to COVID-19 restrictions.

To honour Tim, donations can be made in his name, to a charity of your choice or to the Cancer Society, the Saskatoon SPCA or the Perth Fire Services.

Wilda May Lumbis

” Do not reject us in our old age; Forsake me not when my strength is spent.” Psalm 71:9

Our wonderful Mom and Nannie passed away on September 17, 2020 at Sunnyside Nursing Home. May was born at Saskatoon City Hospital on Jan 2, 1931. She attended King George School, Bedford Road Collegiate and obtained her teaching certificate at the Saskatoon Normal School. She taught at a one room school for a year before she married Gordon Lumbis. They were married 40 years before his death in 1991. May always loved children. She started a kindergarten in the basement of her home. Many children benefited from her teaching skills until kindergarten was added into the school system. From a young age, May was involved in the Girl Guide movement. As an adult, she was a leader and served as Saskatoon City Commissioner and in later years, she spent many happy times with her friends in the Trefoil Guild. May was also very active in St. Timothy’s Anglican Church. She taught Sunday school, was a willing volunteer for any project and was a loyal member of the December Circle which included many of her closest friends. She loved to sew, knit, crochet and craft. She was a wonderful Mother, Grandmother and friend – always ready and willing to do what it took to make those around her happy. She was a busy, happy woman with a book or craft project close at hand until the difficult progression of vascular dementia began. This disease took away our names and most of her memories of us but she always knew that we were someone she loved and that we loved her. May was a loving mother and mother-in-law to: Ken Lumbis and Carol Bromley-Meeres, Darlene and Rick Vermette, Laurie and Dave Renneberg, Allan and Kim Lumbis, Ron and Maureen Lumbis, Kristene and James Stephenson. She was so very proud of her 14 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. The family would like to extend our thanks to Dr. Mick Jutras. His care over 30 plus years and especially when Mom’s dementia began to worsen was appreciated more than can be expressed. To Joanne and the caregivers at Prairie Springs Care Home, thank you for three years of care and support. And finally, our deepest gratitude and appreciation for all the wonderful staff that compassionately and lovingly cared for our Mom and supported us at Sunnyside Nursing Home with smiles and understanding of a very difficult disease. A private family interment will take place at a later date. Flowers gratefully declined.

Murray Wayne Lovell

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Murray Wayne Lovell on July 24, 2020. Wayne had suffered with cancer since 2018 and it finally overtook him. He has requested no memorial service but will be interred at the Stone Church Cemetery in Wishart, Sk. at a later date.

Wayne was the second eldest of twelve children born to Ray and Ruby (Nelson) Lovell on April 1, 1951 in Lestock, Sk. and he was raised on the family farm near Wishart.

Wayne had a good sense of humor and he was kind and generous. He would do anything for you. He was a pretty good cook and liked to garden: he also loved his flowers. He loved his solar lights and yard sales where he would pick up all sorts of trinkets. And if you knew Wayne, you knew he liked to prank.

Wayne attended school in Wishart although he didn’t graduate. He worked for many farmers around the district and he had many good memories of the people he worked for.

He met and married his wife Penny Erickson at an early age. Although Wayne and Penny separated when the children were younger, they had four beautiful children of whom Wayne was very proud and who he loved so much; Darren, Trevor (Carrie), Amber (Tyler) Lindgren, and Colin. The family grew even more as four grandchildren were born; Jordyn, Colten, Paige, and Ella. The grandchildren brought many smiles and so much joy to Wayne.

Wayne had many jobs throughout his life; baker, milk truck delivery, Globe and Mail delivery, security guard. He also worked in Uranium City and various Northern communities. His last line of work was road construction in which he operated his favorite piece of equipment, a DC-8 Cat. He was helpful in building the Alaska highway. He fell in love with the scenery and the Alaskan way of life and it was his plan to return there but it never happened. During this season of his life he lived with his cousin and Brian (Rose) in Whitehorse, NWT for a while as well as his cousin Karen and her kids. He enjoyed them very much.

Wayne returned to live in Saskatoon for a while and then moved out to Unity where he lived out the remainder of his life. During his years in Unity he helped out at the family business of his sister Shirley and her husband Dale.

Wayne was predeceased by his wife: Penny, parents: Ruby and Ray Lovell, grandparents: Ruth and Jim Lovell, Rose and Albert Nelson, brothers: Glen (Arlin), Jimmy, Mark, and Kevin, sisters: Maureen, Brenda, and many aunts and uncles.

Wayne is survived by: his children and grandchildren as previously mentioned, his brother: Randy (Laura) and children, Jeff and Leah (Randy), Mark’s son James Lovell,  his sisters:  Linda and children Tyler and Jason, Shirley (Dale) and children Lisa (JD), Kerry and Daniel (Stephanie), Debbie (Stephen), Brenda’s children Stacey and Jenna Sommerfeld, Dawn and daughter Macey, Christine (Glen) and children Perry (Adelfa) and Rowena, his aunts: Shirley (Barrack) Ghattey, and Ethel Nelson, as well as numerous great nieces and nephews, cousins, and dear friends.

Rest in peace Wayne where you are free from pain. We will cherish our memories of you!

December 3, 1922 – July 6, 2020

As her final wish, Anna peacefully passed away in her sleep on July 6th,, 2020.

Anna was a trooper, free spirit, rebel and most certainly ahead of her time.  She was extraordinarily proud to be a stewardess for Czech Airlines in her early career flying throughout Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.   After she and her husband Otto, with their son Otto in tow, fled the Communists in Czechoslovakia in 1968, they made Saskatoon their home.  The next phase of Anna’s career saw her working as a Microbiologist at the University of Saskatchewan.

Anna loved muscle cars and owned her own 1971 Mustang Mach 1 when she was in her early 50s!  She loved her son Otto to the moon and back, and especially loved his Corvette and Roadrunner – which they raced on 1st Avenue in Saskatoon years ago.

Anna was a voracious reader, wanting to learn about everything going on in the world.  She loved nature and gardening and especially birds, which provided her hours of delight as she watched them frolic in her backyard feeders and birdbaths.

Anna was predeceased by her husband Otto in 1977 and her brother on July 2nd – just 4 days before she passed.   She is survived by her son Otto, daughter-in-law Terry, and her dear, dear friends Gerri Wolfe, and Rita and Andy Field.  At Anna’s request there will be no service.  As a long time member of Eckankar, she knows she’ll see you again.  In lieu of flowers, please plant a tree or perennial, or hang a bird feeder for the birds.  Special thanks to St. Joesph’s Home for their excellent care in her last few months.

Together they farmed in the Kilmeny School district, later renovating the school into their home where they raised their five children – Linda (Bob Davis), Sharon, Debra, Janice (Bernie Schultz) and Dennis (Solange Fontaine). Known to all who knew her as a beautiful, caring person Ethel was all about family. She was a sweet grandma to six grandchildren – Nihme, Krys, Eliza, Henry, Rachael, and Gillian. She enjoyed five great grandchildren – Katrina, Tosh, Louise, Lila and Miles. Ethel was a strong helpmate to Henry and her family. Together they raised a large garden and lots of chickens. She was tough. Whether it was serving as ”grease monkey” in the garage business or driving a grain truck on the farm, Ethel could be counted on to pitch in, as well as get meals on the table -with home made bread and pie! She later went to work at Honeyboy Bakery, The Bay, Adilman’s Department Store and Zellers. Travelling with Henry on many camper and bus trips, Ethel developed an appreciation of rocks, developing her skills in collecting, polishing and using them to create jewelry. She loved snowmobiling. She often went hunting and fishing with Henry. Ethel still holds the family record for catching the largest fish. Later in life Ethel enjoyed adult colouring books, always having one handy by her side. She loved knitting and crocheting, growing flowers and watching birds. This lovely lady will be missed. She was amazing.
