Please share a memory of Evelyn to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with great sadness that the family of Evelyn Thurmeier announce her passing on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, at the age of 89.  Evelyn will be deeply missed by her eight children, Cathy (Milton) Tripps, Joan (Ken) Zondervan, Rick (Sue), Pat (Darry) Taylor, Ron (Diane), Randy (Deb), Loretta (Alister) Lowe, Al (Patti); 16 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; sister Roslyn Prosofski; as well as numerous nieces and nephews and many friends.  Evelyn was predeceased by her husband Fernie; parents Michael and Emily Schreuer; siblings, Joseph, Lloyd and Helen; son-in-law Gary Gartner; and grandson-in-law Howard Nelson.  The family would like to thank Dr. J.S. McMillan for his compassion, care and friendship he gave to both Mom and Dad over the years. Thank you to the doctor and nurses on 3A at the Pasqua Hospital for the outstanding care Mom received in her final days.  A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, June 10, 2022 at Assumption of Blessed Virgin Mary R.C. Church, Holdfast, SK. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Holdfast R.C. Cemetery Fund.


“We sat beside your bedside, our hearts were crushed and sore, we did our duty to the end, til we could do no more. In tears we watched you sinking, we watched you fade away, and though our hearts were breaking, we knew you could not stay.  You left behind some aching hearts that loved you most sincere, we never shall and never will forget you, Mother Dear”.


Mom was born on the family farm at Cupar on August 27, 1932. Following high school, mom began her working career at the local bank. She met Dad at choir practice and they were married on June 12, 1951.  Life soon became very busy as they raised 8 children together.  They were very proud of them all as they watched them grow and make their own way.


After the youngest child started school, mom went back to work at the Holdfast Credit Union and worked there for 20 years before retiring.


Mom and Dad were devout Catholics and both were involved in the church through choir, CWL and Knights of Columbus.


Mom and Dad had many treasured friends in the Holdfast area and loved their get togethers.  They spent their early retirement years in Yuma, Arizona in the winters and made more great friends. They resided in Holdfast for 55 years before moving into Regina in 2012.


Mom enjoyed cross stitching, baking, painting bird houses and working on word search puzzles.


All of the children say that one of the best memories of Mom is waking up to the smell of fresh baked buns every Saturday.  Mom loved to bake and cook for her family and friends and we all enjoyed what ever she created.


To our Dear Mom,


You are with the Angels now

It was time to say goodbye

Yet still it’s hard to hide the pain

No matter how I try

For you were such a special Mom

With lots of love to share

And knowing you’re no longer here

Is very hard to bear

And though the grief will pass

And time will help to heal the pain

Somehow life without you Mom

Will never be the same.
