The Guest Book is expired.
It is with great sadness the family of Doris Eva (nee Daelick) Wildeman, 89 years of Lanigan announce her peaceful passing on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at her residence surrounded by her loving family. Doris was born on September 20, 1923 to Anton and Carey (nee Lemke) Daelick. She grew up on the family farm 3 miles north east of Esk. Doris attended Pauline School north of Esk and actively participated in the family farm in her childhood. After completing grade 9 in school, Doris worked as a domestic in Regina and a telephone operator in Jansen. On June 30, 1944 she married Harold Wildeman in Saskatoon and lived for the first 2 years of their marriage with Harold's parents in Esk. They then built their first farm yard 1 mile east of Esk and in 1953 built their first new home in Esk. Doris was a home maker and active partner in their mixed farming operation and in addition to her duties in the home she could always be seen doing the chores, hauling grain and supervising and feeding the ever present hired men. In 1983 they retired to a new home in the town of Lanigan, and lived there until her passing. Doris and Harold loved to travel and over the years toured much of the United States and spent many winters in Hawaii and in Arizona where they enjoyed the company of old friends and made many new lifelong friends. In summer they fished many of Saskatchewan's northern lakes often accompanied by their grandchildren where Doris passed along her camping and fishing expertise. She loved nature and loved to be outdoors. She was an avid gardener and took great pride in her vegetable, fruit and flower gardens. The results of her toils graced many a dinner table and always kept the freezers and fruit cellar full. Doris loved to bake and cook and her freezer was never found short of her signature cinnamon buns and homemade bread. Doris' gift of hospitality gave many family and friends the opportunity to enjoy her talents in the kitchen and visitors to their home were never allowed to leave hungry. Family was always the priority in Doris' life and she focused her talents and efforts to caring, nurturing and building the character of her three children, seven grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. Doris will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 68 years Harold Wildeman of Lanigan; three children, seven grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren: Eileen (Bill) Block of Jansen and family, Devin (Jennifer) Block of Saskatoon and sons Jacob and Joshua, Corey (Lisa) Block of Rocky Mountain House, AB and children Gwen and Zoe and Shawn Block of Moose Jaw and son Kierran; Donna (Ron) Schorr of Medicine Hat, AB and family, Cammie (Brian) Kannekens of Medicine Hat, AB and children Quinn, Kelsei and Kia and Juli (Desmond) Jordan of Calgary and children Maiya, Desirea and Sacha; and Mylles (Connie) Wildeman and family, Todd (Kim) Wildeman and children Jace, Reese and Raea and Chris (Julie) Wildeman and children Avery and Kya, all of Esk; sister, Mary Paetsch and sisters-in- law, Edna Daelick, Elsie Daelick and Lydia Kielan; and by numerous nieces and nephews.
