Elmer of Semans, Saskatchewan passed away peacefully at the Lanigan Hospital on December 14, 2012. Elmer was born April 28, 1923 and grew up in the Tate district. As a young man he successfully showed Percheron horses throughout North America with his father, George, and in the 70s and 80s he was a much-loved school bus driver in the Govan School Unit. Elmer was a dedicated farmer all his life - to the point that he drove combine in this past harvest at the age of 89. In his later years Elmer loved spending his time fishing, playing cribbage with his nephew, Maynard Phillips, and reading western novels. Elmer is survived by his loving wife of 65 years, Shirley, and their children, Marlene (Maurice) and Blair of Semans, Donna of Saskatoon, Trent (Lorette) of Regina and Darren of Edmonton. He will be lovingly remembered by 5 grandchildren, Chastity Simister of Edmonton, Logan (Karleen) of Regina, Corbin of Halifax, Tealyn of Calgary and Payden of Regina as well as 3 great grand-daughters, Bryce Erhardt, Brianna and Julia Simister of Edmonton. Elmer also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews and neighbours. By request there will be no funeral and in lieu of flowers donations can be made in Elmer's name to the Saskatchewan SPCA, Box 37, Saskatoon, Sask S7K 3K1 (or online at sspca.ca)
