SHIER, Bernard Joseph
1942 - 2013
Bernard Joseph Shier, aged 70, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 23, 2013. He was predeceased by his parents Ralph & Jeanne Shier, twin siblings in infancy, brother-in-law Louis Stefura and father-in-law Adam Herold. Lovingly remembered by his wife of 41 years Marlene; his children Chad (Kelley), Bradley, Melissa (Jason) Burns, & Kristin (Dustin) Caldwell; his grandchildren Ethan & Aeva (Chad), Payton, Hannah & Hailey (Kristin); his siblings Carole Stefura, Paul (Marie), Ken (Bonnie), Mary (Kelly) Brock, Patrick, Jackie (John) Boettcher; his mother-in- law Emelia Herold; many brothers and sisters-in-law, friends, nieces & nephews. Bernie was born in Estevan, SK. He travelled around the country in his younger years before settling down to raise a family in Regina with Marlene. He worked at Shaw Pipe for 21 years, where he made many friends, before retiring in 2004. Bernie enjoyed fishing, word search puzzles, romance novels, a good and loud TV and cuddles with his grandkids and his cats Faith & Elliot. He will be remembered for his cynical sense of humor, his giving nature and the gruff exterior that often hid his marshmallow soft heart. He was a good man who will be deeply missed. The family wishes to extend their thanks to his entire medical team and especially to Dr. Llewelyn-Williams for his care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Bernie's memory to the Regina Humane Society. Celebration of Bernie's Life will be held on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at the Chapel of Victoria Avenue Funeral Home, 2080 Victoria Avenue East, Regina, SK.
