Melrose ‘Thelma’ Ferguson
April 19, 1930 - October 7, 2017
It is with sad hearts that the family of Thelma Ferguson of Biggar, Sask. announces her peaceful passing on October 7, 2017 at the age of 87.
Thelma will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her two sons, Gary (Debby) of Saskatoon and family Mark, Stacey Exon (Ryan), and Nolan; Kent (Kathy) of Landis and family, Amanda Mutch (Kyle) and Hudson, Melissa Nordstrom (Dylan) and Jayden and Peyton, Krystal (Nathan Keller), and Kelsey; her sister-in-law, Ann Vizer; and numerous nieces and nephews and their extended families. Thelma was predeceased by her parents, Fred and Emma Vizer; her husband, Ted; her brothers, Charles and George Vizer; her sisters-in-law, Olive Vizer and Veril Bourk; and her brothers-in-law, Leslie Bourk and Jack Robertson.
Thelma was born on her family farm near Landis, Sask. on April 19, 1930. Growing up on the farm with two doting older brothers and two adoring parents, Thelma developed a deep love and appreciation for family and her rural way of life. Thelma graduated from Landis School in 1948 and following her love of learning she attended Teachers College in Saskatoon before beginning her teaching career in a one room school at Brooks, SK. The following year she taught at Springwater and there she met the love of her life and on July 3, 1952 she married her husband of 57 years, Ted.
Ted and Thelma began their married life in the Springwater area and in 1954 along with their son, Gary, moved to a farm near Landis. Shortly after their move they were joined by the birth of their second son, Kent. Thelma was very active in the community and very committed to her family. In 1968 Thelma returned to teaching and taught at Landis School until she retired in 1985. During this time she attended University night and summer classes to obtain her class 2 teaching certificate. Teaching Grade 4 for most of her career Thelma was a very beloved teacher embracing each student’s success with pride. Thelma was also very active in working with the Boy Scout organization and the Landis United Church.
Thelma and Ted moved to Biggar in 1988 to begin the retirement phase of their lives.
Relaxing with knitting needles, visiting with friends, a new craft project, a game of cards, a good book, or an old episode of Little House on the Prairies were some of her favourite retirement activities. Throughout her life Thelma enjoyed gardening and took much pride in her large array of produce. She always looked forward to special occasions and sharing meals with friends and family. Spending time with her grandchildren and more recently her great-grandchildren gave her much joy in her retirement years.
After Ted’s passing in 2010, Thelma moved to Bethany Home in Wilkie, Sask., Sunshine Care Home in Biggar and in 2012 she moved into the Biggar Diamond Lodge. Mom was fortunate to move into the beautiful new long term care facility in Biggar in 2015. Thelma will be remembered for her love and dedication to family and friends. She will be sadly missed.
A special thank you to the staff of the Biggar and District Long Term Health Care Centre for their compassionate care over the past several years. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made in Thelma’s name to the Biggar and District Long Term Care Activity Fund, Box 130, Biggar, SK, S0K 0M0.
Thelma’s CELEBRATION OF LIFE will be held on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13 at 11:00 a.m. in the Landis Community Centre, Landis, Sask. with Rev. Linsell Hurd officiating. Tribute to Thelma will be given by Gary Ferguson; solo by Deb Scott and music provided by Gary Braithwaite. Interment will follow in Biggar Cemetery, Biggar, Sask.

Cindy spent her final years in Tisdale, Sask. where she made many friends and enjoyed weekly wing-nights. In Biggar, Cindy spent a number of years working at the Diamond Lodge and for Emergency Services, where she encountered interesting hijinks by her brother-in-law and his friends. In her youth she was an air cadet where her skill for shining boots was put to use. Cindy participated in high school band; and was an avid pianist, playing the organ at the Biggar Anglican Church.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Biggar Hospital for the care they provided.
