Alfred (Jack) John Henshaw
1920 - 2012

Alfred, known to all as Jack, was born on January 1, 1920 on his parents' farm in the Snarum District of North Southey and passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 8th, 2012 at Veteran's Village in Saskatoon at the age of 92+ years. Left to mourn him are his four daughters, Carol (George Stuart), Sharon (Fred Beresford), Joanne (Terry Mildenberger) and Wendy (Jerry Trifunov) and grandchildren, D'Arcy Beresford, Graham Stuart, Heather Stevenson (nee Stuart), Scott (Lindsay) Mildenberger, Joel Mildenberger, Alex Trifunov and Cole Trifunov and 4 precious great-grandchildren, Carter & Levi Stevenson and Lily & Jack Mildenberger and his sister-in-law, Frieda Hubick and brother-in-law, Henry Geres. Jack was predeceased by his loving wife, Elsie, and his only brother, William (Kay) Henshaw, his parents, Alfred and Agnes Henshaw, his sisters-in-law, Barbara (Harry Clarke), Carrie Geres (nee Hubick), Kathleen (Adam Gellner), Edith (Edmund Wagner), Fanny Hubick (infancy) and brother-in-law, Ferdinand Hubick. Jack's life was shaped by his early experiences growing up on the farm and serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force in World War II. He spent his life committed to working with friends and neighbors in the community, whether it was a joint farming project, or volunteering at the Southey United Church, on the board of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, the Southey Co-op Board, the Southey and District Museum or the Southey Legion. In his heart, Jack was an inventor and was always looking for ways to make things work better. Jack's endless stories were fuelled by his insatiable love of reading. Above all, Jack was a doting and respectful husband and a devoted father, who measured his success by the love of his wife and his family. Jack and Elsie had a loving and long marriage where they worked side by side on the farm, in the kitchen and in the community. They loved their friends and neighbors and found countless hours of enjoyment dancing. To the end, Dad was a proud Veteran and, in memory of him, we ask that each Remembrance Day, you carry on his prayers for the safe return of all service men and women. A Celebration of Jack's Life will be held, Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. in Southey United Church, Southey, SK, with Jack's dear friend, Danna Armstrong officiating. A private family interment at the Southey Community Cemetery will precede the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Southey United Church Memorial Fund, Box 451, Southey, SK, S0G 4P0, or a charity of your choice.
