OSCIENNY - ANTON (TONY) September 21, 1940 May 29, 2004. Tony's family is very sad to announce his death on Saturday morning in Central Butte Hospital following a short and heartbreaking battle with cancer. Waiting for him on the other side are his parents, Rose and Steve Oscienny, his parents-in-law Florence and Raymond Reiss and Agnes and Stewart Robertson, and his wee grand-nephew Callum Trainor. Left to miss him are his wife and best friends, Linda Reiss, his beloved children, Dean (Penny Dziki) Lisa, Tanya (Kent) Cline, Reiss (Sara) and Matthew, daughter-in-law, Kim Oscienny, his only sister, Vicki (Mel) Ball, sister-inlaw, Gail (Charlie) Boser, brother-in-law Francis Reiss, his first wife, Evelyn Robertson and six nephews and nieces as well as many other relatives and special friends. Perhaps hardest to leave behind were his precious grandchildren, Dabnee, Ethan, Jace and Karis. Tony was born and raised in Jedburgh, Sask., graduated from the U of S in Saskatoon and spent his 30 year teaching and civil service career in various locations around Saskatchewan. Most of his working years were spent in La Ronge where his three youngest children were raised and where his two older children have chosen to reside. The were happy years some of the best times being his years as councillor and executive member of the STF and with the good times spent with the many good friends they made there. But Tony was always a prairie boy and his reward came in 2000 when he and Linda moved to their retirement cottage at Mistussine no Diefenbaker Lake. There he had all the time in the world to read, putter at small jobs and spot deer and pheasants in the park and the back yard and enjoy his grandkids and other family and friends. He was a life long supporter of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The family wishes to thank the staff of 3D and 3B at Pasqua Hospital in Regina and specifically his oncologist, Doctor Pacella and Barb Hale in Palliative Care for the support received during his time there.
