Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of Ernest Richard Stroeder, age 85, announces his passing on Tuesday, August 23rd, 2022, in Brooks, Alberta. Born October 31st, 1936, to Fred and Margaret Stroeder, Ernie grew up on a farm near Marysburg, Saskatchewan. It was at a dance in Fulda that he met his beloved wife, Bernice Loessl, whom he married on October 16th, 1961. The couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in 2021.

Ernest began logging in B.C. in the winters and farming with his dad in the summers, However, his heart and passion were always on the farm. So, in 1965, they purchased a farm near Preeceville, Saskatchewan, and began to sow and harvest their future. They raised their family and stayed on the farm until 2006. From there they spent eleven years in Preeceville until they moved to his final home at a senior’s complex in Humboldt, Saskatchewan.

Ernest was known to family and friends as a hard-working, quiet, unassuming gentleman who was the first to lend a helping hand at a moment’s notice. He spoke infrequently, offering thoughtful advice and witty humor that was highly valued by those who loved him. When he wasn’t busy on the farm, he enjoyed fishing, visiting, dancing, hunting, and playing cards. He never passed on an opportunity to be involved with farming or ride around the country to check on crops. Ernest delighted in spending time with his children, grandchildren, and family, all of whom he cherished.
