DRESSELLER, MARYONNE JOSEPHINE (SCHMIRLER)Following a valiant battle with cancer, our dear Mom, Grandmother and Great-grandmother went home to be with her Lord August 1, 2015. She was born August 17, 1930 in Rabbit Lake, Sk. She took her schooling in St. Walberg, Sk and her teacher’s training in Saskatoon. Mom taught in a small country school near Fairholme, Sk at which time she met her future husband, Edwin Dressler. Together, they had 4 children; Darwin (Estelle), Sheryl (Doug) Jackson, Donald (Donna), Eileen (Glenn) Whittemore; 8 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. She was pre-deceased by her mother and father, Alice & Joseph Schmirler; brothers, Dave and Joe Schmirler and our dad, Edwin Dressler. Mom is survived by her sister, Eileen (Charlie) Campbell, Vancouver, BC and brother Guy (Linda) Schmirler, Vernon BC. Our mom enjoyed and excelled in many activities; curling, singing, sewing, various crafts, and was an excellent cook. For now, she is gone, but her memory will live on in each of us forever. A special thank you to the staff at Glenwood Homes for the care given to our mother. A Celebration of Life will be held Friday, August 14th, 1:30 at Evangel Church, 3261 Gordon Drive.
