Fredrick Adolf Reder
On Sunday, November 25, 2007, Fredrick Adolf Reder of Fillmore passed away at the age of 62 years. Predeceased by his parents, Adolf and Freda Reder; Fred will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 38 years, Jean Reder of Fillmore and their four children: Carla (Derek) McIlwaine of Kronau and their child, Rayce; Sherry (Trent) Presnell of Dundurn and their children, Justin and Dylen; Randal (Monique) Reder of Sedley and their children, Trysten and Kayla; and Trevor Reder of Lloydminster; one sister-in-law, Jane (Don) Sherbina of Assiniboia and their children, Karla and Stuart. Fred was born March 8, 1945 in Regina. He married Jean on August 16, 1969 in Weyburn at Zion Lutheran Church. Together they have two sons and two daughters who have provided them with numerous grandchildren. At a young age, after the loss of his Dad, Fred left school in Talmage to take over the family farm. He spent some time in-between trucking cattle and driving school bus, but he remained dedicated to the family farm. Throughout his life, and to this day, he maintained a small herd of Hereford cows, most of which had their own name - good or bad. He was never one to shy away from hard work and would lend a helping hand when needed. You could always count on a hot cup of coffee or a shot of Rye and some good conversation when you arrived at the Reder house. During the past few years, diabetes and kidney failure took its toll on Fred and his family, but with Jean by his side, he persevered and rose to every challenge. The help needed from friends and family to get through the past few years was never taken for granted. Fred loved his farm and cattle but most of all he loved his family. He also enjoyed his antique tractors, old time music, playing guitar and horseback riding. Even though he was taken from us at an early age, he accomplished what few of us are able to do. He fulfilled all the major goals in his life: - to see his children grow and become hard-working, successful individuals; - to become a grandfather and; - to leave this world in the place he cherished the most - his farm. He will be sadly missed and never forgotten. A warm good night's sleep finally awaits you, even when it's 40 below. Funeral Services were held Thursday, November 29 at 2:00 p.m. from the Zion Lutheran Church, Weyburn with Pastor Martin Olson and Pastor Marj McLeod officiating. Interment followed in Hillcrest Cemetery, Weyburn. The Active Pallbearers were: Russ Leguee, Dennis Popowich, Aaron Reich, Frankie Keller, John Keller and Emil Nelson.

Jack Edward O'Dell
In the early evening of Tuesday, November 27, 2007, Jack Edward O'Dell passed away peacefully at Tatagwa View Long Term Care Facility in Weyburn. Jack was predeceased by his beloved wife, Myrt in August, 2005; his father and mother, Elie and Lily O'Dell; his three sisters: Mary Bundas, Rita Andrews and Jean Weber; his brother, Roy; his half-brother, Floyd Stinchcomb; his granddaughter, Jade O'Dell; and his great-grandson, Mitchell O'Dell.

Jack was born in Regina, on December 25, 1930, the youngest child born to Elie and Lily O'Dell. He attended Souris School in Weyburn, his first job spent shoveling coal at the Power House (now the Museum). Following that, Jack worked for Laing's Beverages and then began his lifetime career at the Co-op Creamery. A team of horses and a wagon provided the first transportation for Jack as he delivered milk to homes throughout Weyburn. Then a truck and the rural runs, taking him to small towns east and south of Weyburn. Through these years, Jack developed life long friendships and would often talk about his days on the road and the people he had come to know. Later, working years were spent delivering milk to businesses within Weyburn until shortly before his retirement when he again took to the road traveling to small communities west of Weyburn. Jack fell head over heels, quite literally, for Myrt when he fell from a tree limb while hanging upside down trying to attract her attention. They were married on September 22, 1950. Children and grandchildren followed as the years flew by. Jack was a generous, caring and loving husband, father and grandfather. His wit and humor made visiting entertaining and whether it was teasing the grandchildren or cheering for the opposing football team, Jack brought fun and laughter to every gathering. He loved being with his family and looked forward to visits. After suffering a serious heart attack, Jack embarked upon his life of faith and hope in Jesus. He attended Weyburn Free Methodist Church and when he was asked to be a Door Greeter, Jack gladly accepted. His circle of friends became even larger as he welcomed each person to Sunday morning Service. Whether it was telling stories with his coffee buddies, driving through car lots around town or sitting in his favorite chair, Jack loved life. We will miss him - every day, every summer barbeque, every holiday celebration. We love you, Dad. A Memorial Service was held Monday, December 3, at 2:00 p.m. from the Weyburn Free Methodist Church, Weyburn, with Pastors Jodie Pfeifer, Wade Fitzpatrick and Stephen An. Shawn O'Dell gave a tribute to his grandfather and Gerald Alexander sang "Oh Danny Boy" accompanied by Cherith Alexander. The eulogy was read by his son, Warren O'Dell along with a slide show tribute to Jack's life. The Interment followed in Hillcrest Cemetery, Weyburn. Donations may be made in memory of Jack to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Arrangements were entrusted to Fletcher Funeral Chapels Ltd., Weyburn.
