He was 3, he left when he was 17.  The orphanage was very strict, there was not a lot to eat, it was very hard on them. Boys & girls were separated so there was not a lot of interaction between siblings. He never realized how much of a childhood he had missed until hearing of others early family life. Despite this he was very close to his siblings, even though they were all in different parts of the world later in life.

Roy enlisted in the British Royal Marines on July 1st. 1946 when he was 17-1/2. He was stationed in numerous places, Palestine Campaign Haifa, Hong Kong, Sinai Egypt, Tarhuna Tripoli, Malta. 42nd & 40th commando, 3 Commando brigade. He was very proud to be a British Royal Marine. He served 22 years. He always said it was the best thing he did when he left the orphanage. He always laughed at his fellow unit members when they complained about the discipline and the tough rules. He had no problem with it after being in the orphanage.

Roy met the love of his life Gretta, she was a Wren, he told her when they first met, he was going to marry her, she just laughed at him. They later married Sept. 15, 1951. He was stationed to Malta, she went with him for a few years. Their daughter Margaret was born in 1955.  Retiring from the Marines in 1969, he worked at fibreglass boat yard for a year.

The family made a decision to move to Calgary, Canada in 1970.

Roy worked at Canada packers’ meat packing plant. He then decided to become a meat inspector.

In 1980 Roy and Gretta moved to Nanaimo. He worked for the Department of Defense in Nanoose Bay, as a civilian on a support ship on the torpedo testing grounds.

In 1988 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.  In 1991 Gretta passed away. In 1993 he decided to retire.  Roy & Gretta had become good friends with the Sheppard family. Roy & Diane had many happy years together until she passed away in 2009.

Roy moved to Saskatoon in 2010 to live with his daughter Margaret, and son-in-law Doug.  He loved going out for day trips. Sitting out on the back deck having a beer and watching the birds. He enjoyed his retired life.  He was very proud of his granddaughter Melody. He attended her wedding to Colin in 2021 in Canmore, Alberta.  Really excited when he met his great grandson Dylan Edgar Ukrainec.

Dad was a very happy man, he always said “why worry about anything, it doesn’t do any good”. He was always amazed he had lived so long.  He loved to read, watch movies, (his favourite was The Hunger Games series), doing puzzles on Jigidi, and going for hot dog & beer picnics.

When he knew his time had come, he told us, ” I have had a great life, no regrets, I would do it all the same”.

Dad, we love you, we miss you. You were a kind, generous, loving man. A wonderful husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, partner, great grandfather, brother-in-law. You gave your family love. You will always be in our hearts. We will be together one day! See you soon!

Margaret, Doug, Melody, Colin, Dylan.

Marie then took her nursing degree (BScN), and finally completed her master’s in nursing (MN).  Marie’s nursing practice focused on long-term care and mental health, and she became a nursing instructor at
Saskatchewan Polytechnic for many years. Marie had such a positive impact on so many nursing students throughout the years. She was so loving and such an amazing role model for students, which was evident in her long-lasting friendships with former students. She was a strong advocate for the students and will be greatly missed. While teaching she participated in several research projects with a focus on childhood trauma and developed the Concepto Plan, an innovative way to mind-map care planning, which is still being used today.
In her later years, Marie had her own practice as a psychotherapist and Foot Care services. Marie loved nursing and continued to work right until her very last days.

Gladys Gudmundson

A beautiful gentle spirit left this world as our mother passed on March 19,2022.  Gladys was born the second eldest of 7 children to Fredjoe and Evelyn Helgason in 1932 on the Elfros farm.  With her soft spoken and patient character, she soon became a favourite, helping care for her younger siblings and baking for the family.  Time spent with her grandfather as a child would fuel her lifelong love and connection to her Icelandic heritage. As a young girl she performed domestic duties for local families, but her heart was truly at home. A chance meeting doing the twostep dance with charmer, Len Gudmundson (dad) would carve a new future. They married in May 1954 and would enjoy 50+ years of marriage. They moved to Saskatoon and soon welcomed 4 handsome sons. Many new faces joined the table of life and she welcomed each with love and kindness.  Gladys was a welcoming dedicated homemaker with a kitchen of perpetual wonderful smells. She was a creative seamstress, sketcher, painter, and clay artist. A gracious intelligent lady, she held a strong interest in politics and world events and read extensively. She was unconditionally supportive and looked positively on every situation. “Better days ahead” was her philosophy. She treasured special bonds with each of her 6 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren smiling with sparkle at each success shared till the end whether it was a new job or a baby’s very first steps. Her close-knit relationships with her siblings remained forever strong and family reunions became pinnacle celebrations. A modest, humble lady with quiet strength, she always saw the good in everyone. She was a rare individual who actually never spoke ill of anyone and retained unfettering integrity. Mom was a most grateful lady till her very last moments and her song will continue in our lives. She was predeceased by her husband Len in 2007 and will be missed by Mark, Lee (Cecile), Darren (Sharon), Jason and their families. A celebration of her life will be held Saturday March 26,2022 11:00 a.m. at St. Davids Trinity Church, 3318 Merritt Street, Saskatoon.

Hernan Urquiza

Hernan was the only child of Ana Jimemez & Ulises Urquiza Parentina.  He was born February 16, 1945, in Santiago Chile.

As he was growing up, he was known as a studious but also kind and humorous young man.  He was the sparkle in his mom’s eye.  From a young age, he always had a love of reading, knowledge and from early on he became interested in politics.  And his great love for dogs was so apparent, his eyes lit up always when he would see one and they always “needed treats”.

Education was always instilled by Hernan’s parents and at a very young age, he became a Sociology Professor and taught at the University of Concepcion.

Hernan was a “tough” professor, but always fair.  He believed in fairness and justice, and was very politically active in the 1960s & 1970s.  The consequence of his fierce dedication to helping his fellow man, was to become a political prisoner under the dictatorship of Augusto Pinoche.  This period of Hernan’s life stayed with him forever and shaped the man he became – kind, giving, and patient – regardless of how he had himself been treated.

In 1977, he and his young family (Hilda, Hernan Patricio (Jr) and Lorena) immigrated to Canada under political refugee status.  Many years later Hernan became a Canadian Citizen.  Hernan’s mom followed 10 years later.

Upon arriving in Canada, he worked at Athabasca Foundry as a Foreman for three years until changing into maintenance for five years for Yip & Jen Investors, and then in 1987 formed his own maintenance company, HDK and Associates, that he maintained until his retirement in 2010.

Hernan married Cindy Sinclair in 1993 and they were blessed with Heidi Marina, when she was born Hernan said, “You got your girl and she is a princess!”.  Heidi is the best thing they contributed to the world together.  Also, in 2003 they adopted a son Lyndon Carter.  Hernan enjoyed going to Lyndon’s soccer games, talking – sharing politics and current events, and had an amazing ability to debate any point with him. The two of them also enjoyed sharing food together: they had the same kind of appetites (Good). Lyndon was growing into a fine young man, but tragically died March 26th, 2021, in Kamloops, BC.  Today we celebrate that father & son are reunited.

Hernan passed from this world to his heavely home with whisperings of love from Cindy, Heidi, and Preston. The Friday before he left us, Lorena enjoyed her dad’s company with a good meal and even better visit. A memory that she will hold fondly in her heart.

Hernan leaves to carry on his legacy, his kindness, and commitment, to others that struggle in their community; his sharp wit and his great love of life, family, and food to his beautiful beloved wife Cindy, son Hernan Patricio (Jr), eldest daughter Lorena Urquiza (Chad), and youngest daughter Heidi (Kyle) Wilkin, grandson Valen Urquiza, Grand-babies Nathan, Spencer & Preston Wilkin.  Also, Mother-in-law Carol Sinclair.

Also to remember with love, laughter, and memories, are very special friends; Nano Donoso (Stolkhom), Ivan Benoit (Chile), Mario Allende (Victoria, BC), Mario Fuentealba (Saskatoon), Keith Chomyshen (Coquitlam, BC), Jonathan O’Leery (Saskatoon), and many, many other friends he made along his life’s journey.

He was predeceased by his parents, Ana & Ulises, and his beautiful son Lyndon Carter  (March 26, 2021), his father-in-law Burton Sinclair (July 10, 2021),  and many that loved him and went before him.

Te quiro Tato, Dad, Granddad, and Hernan.

Jenet “Jenny” Lee Seto

Jenet “Jenny” Lee Seto left the world on March 17th, 2022, peacefully next to the love of her life of 44 years, her husband Ken. In her words, she had “all I ever wanted” in her final days being surrounded by her four surviving sons Sam, Anthony, Bryce and Carter, the spirit of her only daughter Monami, their partners Megan, Melissa, Aminah and Taylor and her eight grandchildren Lyla, Olivia, Cam’ron, Anthony, Trey, Eliana, Rosetta and Isabel. She was 65.

On June 6th, 1956, Jenny was born in Boissevain, Manitoba to Clyne and Bertha Bruner along with her siblings Tom, Mary, Sam and Howard. Growing up on a farm, raising food and crops taught her how to work with her hands in ways she gave back to her own children and grandchildren. Throughout her life, her hands were always moving and creating. Sewing a blanket or hat for a new grandbaby, stitching together needlework art, or painting her daughter-in-law’s nails. As much as she left the world with unforgettable memories, she also left her creations to be enjoyed. Every nighttime tuck-in with one of her blankets is a hug from grandma.

And as much as her hands moved to create, so did her lips to tell stories and make twisted jokes. As the only woman in a home of five boys, she filled the air with her patented laugh and relentless love. While the men surrounding her were the strong and (sometimes very) silent type, she loved openly and without apologies. She loved aggressively and would fight tooth-and-nail for any of her loved ones to have an ounce more happiness. The legacy of her love can be found in the scars of any of those unfortunate enough to try and stand in the way of those she loved.

She loved and she fought for those she loved. And in her final moments, with Ken by her side playing the Rocky Theme Song, she fought for herself for any extra minute to spend with her husband and children. Well passed the doctors time limit they gave to her, she miraculously woke and began to talk with her children. She made jokes and looked at pictures and made one last post to Facebook. Then she rolled her eyes in the back of head and listened to her children panic around her for a few minutes. Before waking up and laughing at us all for falling for another one of her pranks. No matter how twisted, she brought us all together through her humour and our laughter. It’s all she ever wanted.

The family is forever thankful to her sister-in-law Susan, and her friends such as Jenny Rider and Jim and Heather Lynchuk for their love and support.

A celebration of Jenny’s life will take place on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022 at Cherished Memories 591 Centennial Dr N, Martensville, SK S0K 2T0 at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers we ask that you donate to the Canadian Cancer Society at www.cancer.ca.
