The family of Leonard Thurmeier announces his passing on Monday, March 17, 2014 at Sunnyside Nursing Home in Saskatoon, SK at the age of 74. Leonard, formerly of Southey and Perdue, died peacefully after suffering from Parkinson's and Dementia for the past few years. He was born and raised on a farm near Southey where he went to a country school and later attended Campion College in Regina. He began working for Farm Credit Corporation in 1964 where he worked in Prince Albert, Whitewood, Regina, and Swift Current. In 1977 his love of farming brought him and his family to the Perdue area where he farmed until recently when his health made it difficult to continue. In the community he was active in the National Farmers Union, Oddfellows Lodge, the Co-op and various other groups. His Catholic faith was an important part of his whole life. Len was predeceased by his parents Karl (1988) and Minnie (1991), brother Ernie (1999), and sister Janet (2001). He is survived by his daughter Liane of Calgary, AB; sons, Evan (Shannon) of Saskatoon, SK, and Colin (Dawn) of Brooks, AB; six grandchildren, Luke, Britney, Austin, Colton, Brody and Brock. He is also survived by his sisters, Agnes of Calgary, AB and Marilyn (Murray) of Victoria, BC; brothers Ed (Ann) of Calgary, and Robert (Marlene) of Southey, SK; as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews, and the mother of his children, Carol. A private family service will follow at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice. Arrangements entrusted to Acadia-McKague's Funeral Centre (306)955-1600.
