Obituaries

Lena Lorella Novicki
April 4, 1919 - August 10, 2016
The family is saddened to announce the passing of Lena Novicki at the Biggar and District Health Center, with her family and Father Bedard by her side.
She is survived by her children: Clare (Delmer) Friesen of Biggar, Colette (Mark) Carlson of Calgary, Karen Daoust of Saskatoon, Pat (Tally) Novicki of Saskatoon and Judy Taylor of Biggar, five grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter. She is predeceased by husband, Nicholas Novicki; daughter, Percie Stark; and son-in-law, Ron Taylor.
Lena was born in the Redberry Lake area, Saskatchewan, the youngest of six children. Her sister told us that she was one of the happiest little girls she had ever seen, always smiling and singing. Her parents taught her the value of education and mom was very proud of becoming a teacher herself. She taught in one room country schools and subbed in Delisle Composite High School to supplement the family income. Her many talents included speaking three languages fluently, having a beautiful soprano voice, growing amazing flower and vegetable gardens and having the ability to turn any simple food into an amazing feast to which everyone was welcome.
Mom was completely devoted to her family and faith. There was no sacrifice too great for her children and no joy greater than having her family gathered together, especially at mass. She taught Catechism, led church choirs, and was a CWL member for most of her life.
Mom and Dad spent their married life in Rosthern, Hague, Donovan and Delisle. In the fall of 2011, we moved mom to Biggar. Shortly thereafter, she became too ill to live independently and became a resident of Diamond Lodge, where she greatly enjoyed doing puzzles, search words, playing cards and joining in the daily activities especially BINGO. She was blessed to spend three and a half years in the phenomenal care of Dr. McKee and the staff of the Health Centre. She will be sadly missed.
Prayers were held on Sunday, August 14 at 7:30 p.m. with Mark Carlson and Delmer Friesen as readers; and Mass of Christian Burial was held at St. Gabriel Roman Catholic Church, Biggar, Sask. on Monday, August 15, 2016 with Father Michel Bedard as celebrant. Readers were Michelle Daoust, Suzanne Rieger; Cross Bearer, Kirk Taylor; Prayers of the Faithful, Cathy Taylor; and Gift Bearers were Judy Taylor, Courtney Rieger, Cassie Rieger. Honourary Bearers were all those who shared in Lena's life. Active Bearers were Darin Rieger, Suzanne Rieger, Dan Taylor, Kirk Taylor, Delmer Friesen, Mark Carlson. Special Memories by family were at the luncheon. Interment followed at Woodlawn Cemetery, Saskatoon, Sask.
Tributes may be made to the Biggar and District Health Centre Long Term Care Activity Fund, Box 130, Biggar, SK., S0K 0M0
Grondin Funeral Services, Biggar, entrusted with arrangements, "Our family serving your family since 1963".

Memoriams

COVEY, Kenneth Reid: July 29, 1918 - August 13, 2004.
"Those we love remain with us
Love itself lives on,
Cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart,
For as long as there is memory,
They'll live on in our hearts."
I miss you, Dad
Love always, Leah

SCHOMMER, David: October 15, 1939 - August 23, 2011.
“Sometimes we just sit quietly reflecting for awhile imagining your voice, your face, you warm and loving smile. For it’s so lonely to recall the happy times we had when you played such a special role as husband, Dad, grandpa, papa and great-grandpa.
And at this very special time, we only wished you knew that we give all the world today for one more hour with you. But we still have our memories and since we have been apart, it comforts us so much to know that you’re right here in our hearts.”
Love and miss you so much… Marcella; Shelley, Terry, Brenda, Marcel, Cheryl and their families
