Verena Rose Hoffman
Jan 19, 1930 - Jan 18, 2009

Cudworth, Saskatchewan

The death of Mrs. Verena Rose (nee Linz) Hoffman of Cudworth occurred on Sunday, January 18, 2009, at her daughter Brenda’s Cathedral Bluffs home, just north of Saskatoon. She was 78 years of age. Verena was born to Michael and Magdalena (nee Sis) Linz on January 19, 1930, at home on their farm in the Lake Lenore district. She grew up there and attained her elementary education at Solo Country School, then attended Humboldt Collegiate Institute for her secondary education. On June 5, 1950, Verena married Daniel “Dan” Hoffman in St. Anthony’s R.C. Church at Lake Lenore. Their marriage was blessed with four daughters. Verena and Dan began their life together in Lake Lenore. After several years, the family moved to Codette, where Dan was a grain buyer for Pioneer Grain Co., did some carpentry work, and was the mayor for seven years. In addition, Verena and Dan raised cattle and hogs and also operated a livestock trucking business for 11 years. In 1965, the Hoffmans moved to Middle Lake where they bought the hardware store and the Shell Bulk Fuel franchise, which they named Hoffman Manufacturing, and also did some farming. After selling the store, they had a full-time job constructing farm buildings, houses, and apartment buildings in surrounding areas. In 1979, Verena and Dan bought the St. Benedict lumberyard and formed a company with their family. The business was moved to Martensville in 1989 and, in 1997, they retired. Throughout the years, Verena’s life revolved around her family. She loved her role as a homemaker and all that it entailed. Her cooking skills were second to none and she enjoyed treating her family with the gift of their favorite dishes. Verena’s creativity was also evident in her landscaping and gardening, quilting, doll making, ceramics, painting, and even fine carpentry as she helped Dan make beds for their grandchildren. Verena will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her husband of 58 years, Dan Hoffman of Cudworth; their four children, ten grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren: GWEN (Gord) Smith of Sherwood Park, AB, and family, Christopher Smith, Jennifer (Scott) Nielsen and their daughter Marissa, Colby (Lana) Smith and their daughter Brynn, and Jillian Smith; SANDY (Kim) Hancock of Saskatoon and family, Brecken Hancock (Jeremy Dodds), and Logan Hancock (Krista Greening); BRENDA (Kim Ward) Hoffman of Cathedral Bluffs (Saskatoon District) and family, Courtney Ward (William Bobey), and Chase Ward (Meghan Flanagan); and CINDY (Jeffrey) Steeves of Saskatoon and family, Megan Steeves (Dustin Truscott), and Lauren Steeves; two sisters: Loretta (Almer) Olson of Victoria, BC; and Sylvia (Don) Reiter of Humboldt; and by numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Michael and Magdalena (nee Sis) Linz; and by five sisters and two brothers: Marie (Joe) Vedress, Dorothy (Paul) Cockrell, Armella (Gary) Schmitz, Hilda (Brian) McLennan, Andrew Linz (at 4 months of age), Sebastian Linz (at nine years of age), and Lucille (Leo) Cyr. The Prayer Service for Verena was held at Schuler-Lefebvre Funeral Chapel, Humboldt, on Friday, January 23, 2009, at 7:30 p.m., led by Jeff Steeves. William Bobey led the praying of the rosary, and the eulogy was delivered by Kim Ward. The Funeral Mass was offered at St. Michael’s R.C. Church, Cudworth, on Saturday, January 24, 2009, at 10:30 a.m., celebrated by Fr. Albert Ulrich. The cross bearer was Chase Ward. Pallbearers were Jennifer Nielsen, Colby, Jillian and Christopher Smith, Brecken and Logan Hancock, Courtney Ward, and Megan and Lauren Steeves. Memorial donations may be directed to the Palliative Care Nurses Fund. The interment will take place at St. Anthony’s R.C. Cemetery, Lake Lenore, at a later date.

Marie Margaret Moshewsky
Aug 05, 1914 - Jan 19, 2009

Humboldt, Saskatchewan

The death of Marie Margaret Moshewsky of Humboldt occurred at St. Mary’s Villa, Humboldt, on Monday, January 19, 2009. She was 94 years of age, and the last surviving member of her generation. Marie was born to Martin and Anna (nee Schikowsky) Moshewsky on August 5, 1914, at Humboldt, where she was raised and attended school. Following her education, she became a domestic housekeeper, initially for her parents and later for her sister Bergetta Swirsky and her family of two boys, Gordon and Lorne. Devoted service to others was definitely her calling in life. Marie lived with her nephews, Gordon and Lorne, who were like sons to her, and provided them with ongoing domestic care, from cooking to housekeeping. She was quite content staying close to home, living a quiet and simple life, keeping to herself, tending to her house, and planting and harvesting a small garden each year. In her leisure time, Marie enjoyed birdwatching - even the sparrows, and even into her 90s, she still loved playing cards into the wee hours of the morning, particularly Kaiser, Smear and 13. In addition, she spent many good times in the company of Berniece and Forbes Taylor. After Gordon’s death, Marie continued to reside with Lorne until just a few weeks ago when she moved into St. Mary’s Villa. Also of great importance to Marie was her spiritual life. She was always a woman of strong faith and an avid supporter of her church. Marie will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her last surviving nephew and member of her entire family, Lorne Swirsky of Humboldt; special friends, Isabelle (Ed) Brockmeyer of Humboldt; and by numerous close neighbors and other friends. She was predeceased by her parents, Martin and Anna (nee Schikowsky) Moshewsky; three brothers: Peter, Leo and Frank Moshewsky; two sisters: Bergetta (Mike) Swirsky and Berneice Moshewsky; and by one sister-in-law, Grace Marshall. The Funeral Mass for Marie was offered at St. Augustine R.C. Church, Humboldt, on Saturday, January 24, 2009, at 10:00 a.m., celebrated by Fr. Emile April. Others taking part were: Ed Brockmeyer, cross bearer; Isabelle Brockmeyer, urn bearer; Ursula Klassen and Judy Plag, scripture readers; and Ursula Klassen, intentions. Honorary pallbearers were “all those who shared in Marie’s life.” Interment followed at St. Augustine R.C. Cemetery. Memorial donations may be directed to the St. Augustine Parish Building Fund.
